Movement of rare Grad-1 systems spotted in occupied Crimea: Atesh explains what it means. Photo
The Russian terrorist army has started moving Grad-1 multiple rocket launchers in the temporarily occupied Crimea. Rare weapons were spotted in the area of Yevpatoria.
The equipment was unloaded at the railway station and sent to the front line. This was reported in Telegram by the military movement of Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars "Atesh" (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The unloading of the 9K55 Grad-1 MLRS from open-type freight cars was recorded at the Yevpatoria-Tovarna railway station. After that, the occupiers began to prepare the equipment for the transportation of the missile systems to the front line.
It is worth noting that Ukrainian soldiers systematically destroy new copies of the Russian army's multiple launch rocket systems. Therefore, the occupiers' command decided to engage rare samples of Grad MLRS in combat. Atesh emphasized that such decisions of the Russian occupiers indicate the inability of the military-industrial complex of the terrorist country of Russia to conduct long-term hostilities.
The 9K55 Grad-1 multiple launch rocket system is a lightweight version of the BM-21 Grad, which is widely used in the Russian army. The base is a ZIL-131 army truck. A machine with a set of 36 guides is installed on the truck's cargo platform. In the 1970s, the Soviet Union produced no more than 600 copies of the 9K55 Grad-1 MLRS.
As a reminder, Ukraine's defenders have eliminated a quarter of a hundred tanks of the Russian army operating in the Liman sector of the frontline in a few days. Among them was the Volodymyr, a third-generation T-90 main battle tank.
Earlier it was reported that the defenders of Ukraine eliminated 350 Russian soldiers during the day on October 8. Since the beginning of the invasion, the number of enemy manpower killed on Ukrainian soil has already exceeded 282,630.
