The Ukrainian defense forces destroyed an enemy self-propelled artillery unit "Akatsiia" along with six occupants using a HIMARS missile strike. Video
Ukrainian forces successfully neutralized a Russian 152-mm Akatsiia self-propelled howitzer positioned on the temporarily occupied coast of the Kherson region. The enemy attempted to conceal the military equipment in a forest plantation near the village of Kozachi Camps near Dnipro.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces, having discovered the concealed self-propelled artillery system, executed a precise strike, as captured in a video shared by Serhii Bratchuk, a representative of the Ukrainian Volunteer Army "South," on his Telegram blog.
Accompanying the destruction of the self-propelled artillery system, the aggressor country's troops suffered personnel losses, with six occupants reported as casualties.
A drone operated by Ukrainian defenders captured footage of the Russian "Akatsiia" in the forest before the attack. Sources suggest that the accurate shot was fired by a HIMARS MLRS, a system acquired by the Ukrainian Armed Forces from the United States.
The fire impact, guided from the air by Ukrainian aerial reconnaissance personnel, resulted in the self-propelled artillery system catching fire, leading to the detonation of the ammunition storage.
As previously reported by OBOZ.UA, on November 25, the Defense Forces destroyed 176 pieces of weapons and military equipment belonging to the Russian Armed Forces, with drones accounting for over half of the total. The occupiers 'demilitarized' 1,070 units. For more detailed statistics on enemy losses, refer to the information provided by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, available here.
