Video of the strike of the Russian kamikaze drone “Lancet” on the Czechoslovak 152-mm self-propelled gun vz.77 DANA. The DANA vz.77 self-propelled gun was developed in 1977 and has a maximum firing range of 20 kilometers; the Ukrainian Army also has a modernized version of the Dana-M2 self-propelled gun. Please note that the Russian Lancet kamikaze drones began to be equipped with a target acquisition system; a double green marker is visible in the video. Judging by the video, the self-propelled gun did not receive significant damage.

Footage of the Russian Terminator combat vehicle in combat work in Ukraine is rare. There are constantly rumors that they were destroyed, but this is not so, several Terminator combat vehicles are now working in the Donetsk direction. The car, one might say, is being hunted by Ukrainian units, because any destruction of this car is a significant event and a cash bonus for Ukrainian soldiers. One of its crew members spoke about the work of the Terminator BMPT.

Footage of the destruction of a Ukrainian Leopard 2A6 tank made in Germany. The Leopard 2A6 tank is equipped with additional protection and belonged to the 47th mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Army; the tank was used in the Avdiivka direction. The Leopard 2A6 tank was reportedly destroyed by one of the Russian tanks, the model of the tank is not reported and it is not in the video, perhaps the shooting was carried out from afar. Judging by the footage, after the Leopard tank was hit, the fuel in it caught fire and the tank’s crew abandoned the combat vehicle.

Footage of the impact of Ukrainian Storm Shadow missiles, Anglo-French production, on the Russian small missile ship Askold of Project 22800 has been published. The ship was located at the Zaliv shipyard in Kerch. Some of the missiles were launched by Ukrainian Su-24M aircraft from the Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhye regions; there were supposedly up to 16 of them in total. The missiles approached the target from different directions, maneuvering, changing routes and altitudes. Officially, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that air defense shot down 13 out of 15 missiles over Kerch, which can be assessed as a good result for air defense. It is known that six missiles were shot down 50 km north of the Crimean Bridge and over Kerch. One missile was shot down over the Zaliv plant. Apparently the missiles also targeted the Crimean Bridge. According to the video, three missiles hit a pier next to the ship, causing significant damage to the ship.

It is known that the missile system is guided by GPS, it is based on the Kh-38 multi-purpose missile and can hit targets at a distance of up to 120 km. The complex is used from Su-34 and Mig-35 aircraft, as well as from the S-70 Okhotnik UAV. The mass of the missile warhead is from 315 to 480 kilograms. The video shows a missile from the Grom complex hitting a temporary residence of Ukrainian military personnel.

Ukrainian naval drones attacked Russian Serna landing boats. Footage of an attack by Ukrainian naval kamikaze drones on Russian landing boats of Project 11770 “Serna” has been published. According to Ukrainian media, the drone attack took place tonight in the waters of Crimea. It is not reported where the boats of the Serna project were located. The quality of the video is quite poor, but judging by the footage, one of the boats was definitely damaged by a Ukrainian drone strike. There are no details about the attack yet, and the model of the Ukrainian drone used is unknown. Landing boats of Project 11770 “Serna” began to be produced in 1993; the boat is equipped with a water-jet propulsion system and is capable of transporting a tank, 92 troops or two infantry fighting vehicles. Now Russia has 16 such boats.

Now in combat operations in Ukraine, drones are used not only to attack military equipment and infantry, but are also used to attack other drones. The video shows a Russian drone hitting a Ukrainian army drone. After the impact, the Ukrainian drone fell and exploded. Models of drones and the location where the air battle took place are not reported.

Footage of Russian military personnel using an MT-LB armored personnel carrier as a kamikaze vehicle in the Avdeevsky direction near the city of Donetsk. The MT-LB military transporter was loaded with a large amount of explosives and sent towards the positions of the Ukrainian army. The armored personnel carrier did not reach the Ukrainian positions and exploded on an anti-tank mine. This is already the third case of military equipment being used as kamikaze vehicles in Ukraine.

Russian aviation is quite actively using Ka-52 helicopters in Ukraine, armed with Vikhr guided missiles. Due to the long range of destruction of targets with Whirlwind missiles, which reaches 10 kilometers, it is quite difficult to obtain high-quality video where a destroyed target is visible. However, from time to time, videos showing the target being hit appear. One of them, footage of a Russian Ka-52 helicopter, guided by a Vikhr missile, hitting a rare Ukrainian modification of the MT-LB military transporter. The video was filmed in the Novomikhailovka area.

Footage of the battle and the first defeat of the Ukrainian Leopard 1A5 tank made in Germany have been published. The battle episode was filmed in the Kupyansk area; the tank was in service with the 44th mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Army. The tank was not directly hit; the tank was probably damaged by a nearby artillery shell explosion, after which the crew abandoned it. The German Leopard 1A5 tank is a modernization of the first Leopard-1 tank, created in 1987. The tank is very vulnerable as it has thin armor. The thickness of the frontal armor of the tank is up to 70 mm, the turret armor is up to 65 mm, the sides of the tank have armor 35-45 mm thick. Data on the first versions of Leopard 1 tanks.
