The second one in a day: the National Guard's aerial reconnaissance men destroyed an enemy Msta-S. A spectacular video
Ukrainian defenders continue to inflict significant losses on the Russian occupiers. On Tuesday, 29 August, the National Guard's aerial reconnaissance aircraft destroyed the second enemy Msta-S system in a day.
This was announced by the Commander of the National Guard of Ukraine Oleksandr Pivnenko on Telegram. He also posted a corresponding video (to watch it, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The footage shows the work of Ukrainian defenders from the Pechersk Brigade of the National Guard. They used a drone to track and fire at the occupiers' howitzer along with them.
"The aerial reconnaissance men of the Pechersk Brigade of the NGU destroyed the enemy's MSTA-S self-propelled artillery system," commented Oleksandr Pivnenko.
It should be noted that this is the second Russian howitzer destroyed by Ukrainian defenders that day. Earlier, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhnyi showed how an enemy MSTA-S howitzer was destroyed by soldiers from the 14th Separate Mechanised Brigade named after Prince Roman the Great.
The Russian 152-mm self-propelled howitzer 2S19 Msta-S is designed to destroy open and hidden enemy manpower, weapons and military equipment.
The NGU Commander noted that over the past week, NGU aerial reconnaissance groups discovered and destroyed 6 enemy self-propelled artillery systems, as well as 11 tanks, 7 armoured personnel carriers, 1 MLRS, 4 armoured combat vehicles, 1 armoured personnel carrier and 8 vehicles.
"In total, over the past week, the National Guard's scouts discovered 363 enemy targets, some of which were destroyed or disabled in cooperation with the Security and Defence Forces," the commander said.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Ukrainian army soldiers in the south of our country destroyed military equipment of the occupation forces, which Russia calls "unique". We are talking about the mobile coastal radar station of over-the-horizon detection with increased secrecy "Predel-E"
