Drone-dropped munitions refer to the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, to deliver explosive devices or other types of weapons to a target. This method of attack has become increasingly common in modern warfare and has been used in conflicts around the world. This type of weapon is widely used in Ukraine by the Ukrainian army but also by Russian forces to destroy armored vehicles and tanks.

The use of drones to drop munitions can provide a number of advantages over traditional forms of aerial attack. Drones are often smaller, faster, and more agile than traditional aircraft, making them harder to detect and intercept. They can also be operated remotely, allowing the operator to remain at a safe distance from the target.

On December 12, 2022, the Army Recognition editorial team reported that the Russian armed forces have deployed in Ukraine the latest generation of ISDM Zemledeliye, a mine laying system based on a Kamaz 6560 8x8 military truck chassis fitted with two racks of 25 122mm tube launchers able to launch anti-tank or anti-personnel mines.

The ISDM Zemledeliye is capable to launch mines to cover an area of several football fields within minutes. The system has a firing range from 5 to 15 km using 122mm caliber missiles with the warhead equipped with anti-tank or anti-personnel mines.

One of the key features of the ISDM is its "smart" capabilities. The mines can be programmed to only engage specific types of targets, such as armored vehicles or personnel, which reduces the risk of civilian casualties. The system also includes sensors that can detect friendly forces, which prevents the mines from engaging friendly vehicles.

The ISDM is a highly effective system for creating minefields quickly and with minimal risk to friendly forces. Its smart capabilities make it a valuable tool for military operations, particularly in situations where the enemy is expected to use armored vehicles or other heavy equipment.
