The calculation of the Osa-AKM air defense system, the Russian marine brigade of the Pacific Fleet, showed its combat work at night in Ukraine. Several launches of 9M33M3 missiles were carried out against the detected targets. On the combat account of the calculation of the air defense system, there are already 115 destroyed air targets.

The Ukrainian army began to use US AGM-88 HARM anti-radar missiles. The remains of one of the missiles were found at the positions of Russian troops in the Donbass. The missile entered service in 1983 and is capable of targeting high-frequency radars even if they turn off or change frequencies. The length of the rocket is about 4 meters, the diameter is 250 millimeters. With such dimensions, the EPR of the rocket is not small, therefore, they should be easily detected by air defense systems. The missile is designed to be launched only from aircraft, perhaps in Ukraine, handicraft ground installations were created for launching.

Neither a modified Rumanian MiG 29 "Sniper" nor ex. Luftwaffe MiG 29's are believed to be able to do that.

Maybe a technology transfer via Northrop's AARGM land based trial version.


IIRC there was a mentioning by the Pentagon about two/three month ago to do that kind of "technology transfer" in regards to trial/experimental US weapon systems.

In turn a land based version would enable USA/NATO to stop short of delivering own aircraft and modern tanks - a possibility that is presently most likely reserved for the case of a significant Russian advance into Ukraine.

The work of sappers in Ukraine. When searching for mines, IMP-S2 induction mine detectors are used.

Russian artillery began to actively use Krasnopol high-precision guided missiles. The front received 5000 thousand of such ammunition. The video shows the impact of the Krasnopol projectile on the Ukrainian M777 howitzer made in the USA.

The episode of the battle of the Russian reconnaissance group of the Airborne Forces in Ukraine. During the patrol, the military discovered a stronghold of the Ukrainian army. The company commander decided to join the battle. With the support of fire from the BMD-2K-AU airborne combat vehicle and ATGM strikes, it was possible to destroy the stronghold of the Ukrainian army.

Video of Polish 155 mm self-propelled guns Krab in Ukraine. Ukraine purchased 54 of these self-propelled guns and 15 more transferred to Poland from storage. The self-propelled guns were developed in 2000, and there were many problems during its creation. The self-propelled guns can hardly be called Polish; many foreign units are used in the design. Chassis ACS K9 licensed production by Samsung, power plant German diesel engine MT 881 Ka-500, 1,000 hp. With. The howitzer barrel is manufactured by Rheinmetall from Germany. Depending on the type of ammunition, self-propelled guns can hit targets at a distance of 30 to 40 kilometers. The rate of fire of the installation is 6 rounds per minute, the practical rate of fire for long-term combat work is 2 rounds per minute. Howitzer ammunition 40 shells.

The United States handed over MaxxPro armored personnel carriers to Ukraine. One of the MaxxPro armored personnel carriers did not cope with the Ukrainian off-road and was caught on video. The armored vehicle with enhanced mine protection MaxxPro of the American company Navistar was put into service on an urgent basis in the United States in 2007. The use of a serial chassis made it possible to quickly deploy the mass production of the MaxxPro armored vehicle. A fighting compartment for 6 people is installed on the chassis of the armored car, protected from below by a V-shaped plate.

A new mini missile has been developed for the Russian Pantsir-S1M air defense system. The new missile makes it possible to more effectively shoot down small targets from a record close distance of 500 meters. The development was carried out to fight primarily with massive small-sized targets and, apparently, to reduce the cost of missiles. The Pantsir-S1M missile will reportedly shoot down UAVs and multiple rocket launchers.

For an unknown reason, but one of the 2S7 "Pion" self-propelled guns of the Ukrainian army exploded when fired. It is not known what caused the explosion of the 2S7 Pion self-propelled guns, perhaps a defect in the projectile or depreciation of the equipment.

At about 6:00 am, an ammunition depot detonated near the village of Maiskoye in the Dzhankoysky district of Crimea. Now the area is cordoned off, local residents were evacuated for a five-kilometer zone. The cause of the explosions and fire at the ammunition depot in the Crimea is being investigated. Version and sabotage are not excluded
