Old farm trucks in Ukraine fool Russian snipers due to a feature

When Russia first invaded Ukraine in February 2022, most people, including military experts, expected the war to be a defeat in favor of Russian forces. Yet despite being vastly outnumbered, the Ukrainian military has held its own. The Russian military has appeared incompetent at times, including the use of poorly equipped convoy trucks, some with logs for armor. By contrast, the Ukrainian military has been surprisingly resourceful. The latest example is fooling Russian snipers due to a unique feature on old British farm trucks.
