It burned to the ground: Ukrainian Armed Forces destroy enemy TOS-1A "Solntsepyok" in Zaporizhzhia. Video.
In Zaporizhzhia region, our Defence Forces destroyed a heavy TOS-1A "Solntsepyok" multiple rocket launcher system of the Russian occupiers on Friday, June 9. The enemy will no longer be able to fire on the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with it.
It happened between the villages of Verbove and Rabotyne in the Zaporizhzhia region.
"Today, around noon, the Immaterium unit, with the support of the 108th Separate Territorial Defence Brigade and other related units, destroyed an enemy TOS-1A," the statement said.
The footage shows how the enemy flamethrower system started to burn and explode after an accurate strike by our soldiers. The smoke from the site of another "demilitarisation" by the Russian army was visible from afar.
As you know, these systems fire incendiary or thermobaric ammunition. The Russian army adopted the TOS-1A Solntsepyok in 2001.
