The enemy's disguise did not help: the Ukrainian Special Forces destroyed an Msta-B cannon with a set of shells with a precise strike. Video
In the Donetsk region, in the Bakhmut sector, servicemen of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine eliminated a Russian 152-mm Msta-B howitzer. Along with it, Krasnopil ammunition was destroyed.
This was announced by the press service of the Armed Forces on September 20. A video of the precise strike was posted on its Telegram channel (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the page).
"As a result of the successful interaction between the SDF operators and the artillery of the Defense Forces, this carefully camouflaged target was destroyed," the soldiers said.
The operation to search, identify the target and adjust fire was carried out by our defenders from the "Medoids" tactical group of the 3rd separate regiment of the Special Operations Forces.
As you know, the Krasnopil artillery munition has a jet engine and hits an armored target using laser guidance, which allows the target to be illuminated depending on the time of day and its size at a distance of up to 20 kilometers. The market price of such a projectile is about $40,000.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote, earlier the Special Operations Forces soldiers "demilitarized" an ammunition depot of the Russian Armed Forces in the Bakhmut sector. It stored 9M127 Vykhor guided missiles, which the occupiers launch from Ka-50 and Ka-52 helicopters.
