Rare footage of an American-made Ukrainian FGM-148 Javelin ATGM strike, filmed from inside the Russian T-90M Proryv tank, has been published. The tankers had expended shells and were firing from a remote anti-aircraft gun. The crew of the tank spotted the launch of an FGM-148 Javelin missile from the house, a machine gun burst was directed at the launch site and the tank began to actively maneuver away from the missile. Despite the tank's maneuvers, due to the heated machine gun, the Javelin missile was able to aim at the tank and hit the turret. The new turret protection, which we showed earlier, withstood the blow and the tank crew was not injured. The crew put out the fire and took the tank out of the battle, returning to its unit.

In addition to the fact that drone wars actually began in Ukraine, cases of soldiers being taken prisoner when threatened with a drone attack began to be noted. Footage of the surrender of several soldiers of the Ukrainian reconnaissance sabotage group in the Zaporozhye direction has been published. It is worth noting that, apart from cartridges with a mesh for shotguns, nothing has been invented to destroy drones at close range.

Russian military personnel published footage of a Ukrainian FPV drone hitting a Ural truck. Thanks to additional protection in the form of bars, the truck crew was not injured. The servicemen waited out the attack and moved on.

The Russian army used the super-powerful FAB-3000 M-54 bombs for the first time in Ukraine; technical information about them is in the link to the video in the comments to the video. It is worth noting that some believe that a FAB-1500 bomb was used. The bomb was allegedly dropped from a Tu-22M3 bomber; what carrier was used is not reported. The strike was carried out on the temporary deployment point of Ukrainian units in the village of Liptsy, Kharkov region. The deviation of the FAB-3000 bomb from the target was about 15 meters, which is acceptable for bombs of this class.

An episode of an attack by a Ukrainian armored group, consisting of a T-64 tank and a BMP-2, on Russian positions, the location of the filming is not reported, the video has been shortened. The Ukrainian group, using the factor of surprise and high speed, tried to take the Russian position. As a result of the battle, the T-64 tank was hit by Russian artillery, perhaps it was a strike from an FPV drone; judging by the video, the tank’s crew abandoned the combat vehicle. The BMP-2 continued the attack and began landing troops, but the landing force was hit by an ammunition drop from a drone.

One of the Russian snipers from the 40th Guards Marine Brigade of the Pacific Fleet spoke about combat work in Ukraine. To protect against drones and thermal imagers, snipers use special camouflage

Russia has begun to study Ukrainian American-made ATACMS operational-tactical missiles. Three laser ring gyroscopes are being studied that help the guidance system keep the ATACMS missile on a given ballistic trajectory and a GPS antenna that provides correction in the initial and final phases of the missile's flight.
According to the technical specialist, “We can analyze the operation of rocket systems throughout the entire flight path. The correction base, how much it can be adjusted.” Details in the video.

Footage of an attack by two Ukrainian naval drones, presumably MAGURA, on Russian ships in the Black Sea near the city of Novorossiysk. Perhaps the attack was aimed at the Russian patrol ship “Ladny” of Project 1135 and a large landing ship of Project 775. Judging by the video, the ships did not repel the attack of sea drones; the fire was fired from the shore or from other ships not included in the video. As a result of the battle, both sea drones were destroyed.

Footage of the combat work of the Russian T-72B3M tank west of Avdeevka. The modernized T-72B3M tanks appeared in 2022, technical information about it is on the channel. The tank is reported to be firing a 125mm cannon with high-explosive fragmentation shells at a distance of 800 meters, supporting an infantry advance on a Ukrainian army stronghold. Judging by the video, an unknown electronic warfare system is installed on the tank, since Ukrainian FPV drones attacking it do not fire at the tank; this usually rarely happens in combat operations. The video has been shortened.

Footage of the Russian kamikaze drone Lancet-51 hitting the Ukrainian Tunguska air defense missile system, near the village of Peschanoye. The 2S6 Tunguska anti-aircraft gun and missile system was developed in the USSR in 1982; now it is quite rare in the Ukrainian and Russian armies. ZRPK "Tunguska" has two 2A38 guns with a caliber of 30 mm and missile weapons. The range of hitting targets with missiles is up to 8 km, and the height is up to 3.5 km. As a result of the Lancet drone strike, a fire started in the Tunguska air defense missile system.

Russian military personnel spoke about the use of the Scorpion-M wheeled platform in Ukraine. Typically, the Scorpion-M robotic platform is used for transport purposes, but in this case, the wheeled drone was loaded with explosives and sent to a Ukrainian army stronghold. The route of movement of the robotic platform is adjusted from the FPV drone.

Video of the study of Ukrainian Storm Shadow/SCALP cruise missiles in Russia. This is the most detailed video footage of the internals of the Shadow and SCALP missiles to date. The Storm Shadow and SCALP missiles were developed by the French company Matra and the English British Aerospace, and are now produced by the European company MBDA. In the video, Russian specialists show the cumulative part of SCALP missiles, the engine, control equipment, electronics, servos, rudders and various missile design elements.

A story about the rescue of the Russian 152-mm self-propelled gun “Msta-S” from a massive attack by Ukrainian FPV kamikaze drones. The Msta-S self-propelled gun was adopted for armament in 1989, the firing range of the Msta-S self-propelled gun with a conventional projectile is up to 25 km, technical information about it is on the channel. The Msta-S self-propelled gun is equipped with homemade protection and nets for protection against drones. According to the crew of the self-propelled gun, the installation withstood the attack and was sent for repairs; the extent of damage to the self-propelled gun is not clear. Details in the video.

TM-62 mines began to be used to storm buildings in Ukraine. The Russian army began to use TM-62 anti-tank mines in Ukraine as grenades, and several cases have already been recorded. Why is this done? This method allows you to avoid storming the building, since the mine actually destroys the building. It is worth noting that with this method of assault, the soldier himself may receive a concussion. Presumably, a hole is drilled in the TM-62 mines and a grenade fuse is inserted there, since the video shows a soldier pulling the pin from the mine.
