Russian Lancet kamikaze drones have become a problem in Ukraine. The number of cases of strikes by these drones is growing every day. For the first time, a marine target, a Project 58155 Gyurza-M boat of the Ukrainian Navy, was hit by a Lancet drone in Ukraine. The video also shows attacks on the Norwegian self-propelled guns M109A3 of the Ukrainian army, one of them exploded ammunition. A blow to the radar station 36D6-M of the S-300 air defense system of Ukraine. For an unknown reason, the 9K35 Strela-10 air defense system of the Ukrainian army did not notice the Lancet drone and was destroyed, the air defense missiles exploded.

Ukraine received about 30 German ZSU "Gepard". The Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft gun was adopted by Germany in 1973, and by 2012 all vehicles were decommissioned due to obsolescence. ZSU "Gepard" is the most complex armored vehicle in Germany, the preparation of its crew of 3 people takes the most time from all German armored vehicles. It is worth noting that now there is a problem with the supply of ammunition for this installation, Germany does not make them anymore. "Gepard" can be compared with the Soviet ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" developed in 1964. In terms of the rate of fire, "Gepard" loses to "Shilka", 550 rounds per minute, the rate of fire of "Shilka" is 3400 rounds. But "Gepard" wins in terms of firing range. Gepard is equipped with a search radar with a target detection and tracking range of up to 18 km. On the sides of the tower, 35-mm automatic guns are installed with a firing range of up to 5 km and a height reach of 4 km. Ammunition installation 340 shells for each gun. Gepard is built on the chassis of the Leopard 1 tank, weighs 47 tons and has a top speed of 65 km/h.

The Ukrainian army received American repair and recovery vehicles M984A4 on the chassis of a HEMTT truck. The car was seen on the video of one of the Ukrainian servicemen. M984A4 is designed for evacuation of damaged wheeled vehicles. The two-door front HEMTT control cabin accommodates two people and is armored. A machine gun mount with a gunner's protection kit can be installed on the machine. The HEMTT A4 model is equipped with a 515 hp Caterpillar diesel engine. All HEMTT trucks are able to overcome water obstacles up to 1.2 meters deep and slopes of at least 60%.

Footage of a tank battle in Ukraine. The battle between the Russian T-72B3 tank and the Ukrainian T-72M tank, these tanks were recently transferred by Poland to the Ukrainian army. Judging by the video, the crew of the Ukrainian tank did not understand where they were firing from, the driver of the Ukrainian tank managed to leave the burning tank.

In Ukraine, they showed a new reconnaissance UAV SHARK, designed to adjust fire and reconnaissance. The SHARK drone is launched from a catapult and lands with a parachute. The developers report the camera's ability to magnify the image by 30 times. The drone is equipped with an encrypted communication system and, according to the developers, is completely Ukrainian. It should be noted that it is not known who in Ukraine can produce cameras of this quality. The maximum range of the drone is 60 kilometers, the altitude of use is up to 2000 meters. The SHARK UAV can stay in the air for about 2 hours. The maximum flight speed is 150 km/h. The UAV has a small size of 1.91 and weighs 10 kg.

For some unknown reason, one of the Ukrainian tanks decided to conduct reconnaissance alone. The tank advanced without support towards the Russian positions where it was ambushed, as it was immediately spotted from the air by special forces. At a crossroads, a Ukrainian tank was hit by a Russian tank at close range.

An episode of one of the battles in Ukraine. In the video, two Russian tanks, taking risks, literally burst into the positions of the Ukrainian army and start shooting point-blank at the trenches. The lead tank is blown up by a mine, despite the damage, the crew continues to fight. Then the Ukrainian soldiers begin to throw grenades at the tanks, at this time the Russian infantry approaches and begins to storm the positions of the Ukrainian army.

The President of Ukraine showed footage of the assembly of Ukrainian sea drones. The same kamikaze boats were recently used in Sevastopol. The length of the new marine drone of Ukraine will be 5.5 meters, the cruising range is 800 km, and the operational range is 400 km. It is reported that the drone has an autonomy of up to 60 hours. The total mass of the sea drone is about 1000 kg, the mass of the warhead is up to 200 kg. The travel speed can reach 80 km/h. The cost of the drone is currently $10,000. Now in Ukraine, a fundraising for the industrial production of this type of drones has been announced.

The Ukrainian engineering barrier vehicle IMR-2 was hit by a Russian Lancet kamikaze drone. The IMR-2 obstacle blocking machine is designed to create columned paths in difficult places for the advancement of troops, in simple terms, the machine makes temporary roads. IMR-2 also creates passages in minefields.

The fall of a Ukrainian 5V55 S-300 SAM missile near the town of Hrubieshu in Poland once again confirmed reports of problems with these missiles. The video shows the recent launch of a Ukrainian missile of the S-300 air defense system. The rocket flies a little and the rocket's solid fuel explodes, this can be seen from the characteristic explosion that occurs in such cases. The fact is that the shelf life of S-300 air defense missiles is 20 years. The last Ukrainian missiles were fired in 1990, then they simply tried to extend their shelf life at the Zhulyansk machine-building plant "Vizar". It turns out that the shelf life of Ukrainian S-300 air defense missiles has already been exceeded by almost 13 years, so the number of cases of their self-destruction and incorrect operation will grow every day. The problem with missiles is also relevant for the Buk-M1 air defense system of Ukraine, there have already been cases of their incorrect operation.
