Neither armor nor disguise saves the occupiers.
At the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the American and British NLAW and Javelin anti-tank systems, as well as the Ukrainian development of Stugna, played a key role in defending the country. But in recent months, artillery has become one of the main striking forces of the Ukrainian army.
In the spring of 2022, the Armed Forces of Ukraine received Polish Krab artillery howitzers, American M109A3GN self-propelled guns, French CAESAR and Slovak ShKH Zuzana 2.
The numerical superiority of the Russian army in equipment is leveled by the accurate firing of Western guns, which are controlled by Ukrainian fighters trained to meet NATO standards.
The Charter97.org website has collected the brightest videos of the work of Ukrainian artillerymen.
“Champion” for torn-off turrets
In 2022, the Russian media wrote that the 2S7 Pion self-propelled gun is the most powerful self-propelled artillery mount in the world. In turn, the Ukrainian soldiers showed how it is torn apart by a high-precision projectile. The video was filmed in the Kherson region.
The newest Russian tank T-90AM “Proryv” was blown up from the first shot, and then burned out. The export value of such a tank is about 2.5 million dollars, and the cost of the most modernized version reaches 4.3 million dollars.
Thanks to Ukrainian artillery, Russian tanks have a new “champion” in terms of turret fly-offs.
In the Kherson region, Ukrainian artillerymen destroyed an enemy Tor air defense system with a direct hit.
Artillerymen of the 57th Motorized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed two enemy tanks with well-aimed shots.
In the Kherson line, the defenders of Ukraine defeated the equipment of the invaders with a guided 155-mm Excalibur projectile. It can be fired from any modern artillery system of the NATO standard. For example, from the American M777 howitzer or the French CAESAR.
The last “flight” of a Russian tanker after a shell hit his car was caught on video. Artillerymen of the Bila Tserkva 72nd Motorized Rifle Brigade named after the Black Cossacks stood out for their accuracy.
The 44th separate artillery brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of the city of Hulyaipole forced Russian marines to flee from their positions.
