Watch Spetsnaz operators train by drop-kicking windshields
Russia state-owned media outlet RT tweeted an odd video on Dec. 8, 2018, of Russia's elite Spetsnaz operators drop-kicking the windshields of cars.
The video starts with Spetsnaz military police operators riding on and jumping off the top of an armored personnel carrier with text on screen reading "ROUTINE TRAINING OF RUSSIA'S SPETSNAZ" before it cuts to one operator doing a martial arts kip up and then kicking another operator in the chest.
It then shows Spetsnaz operators storming a car as another operator jumps over the hood, drop-kicking the windshield.
More acrobatic maneuvers are displayed in the video before another Spetsnaz operator again jumps over the hood of a car and drop-kicks the windshield before firing his side arm into the car.
It's rather unclear what sort of tactical advantage is achieved by drop kicking a car windshield.
