OSCE spotted Russian TOS-1 thermobaric rocket launcher in Ukraine
By Dylan Vosman - Sep 29, 2015



OSCE SMM – Special Monitoring Mission spotted Russian TOS-1 thermobaric rocket launcher in Ukraine.

SMM spotted at the at the training area in “Lugansk People’s Republic (“LPR”) ”-controlled Kruhlyk (31km south-west of Luhansk) one heavy multiple launch thermobaric rocket system (TOS-1 Buratino, 220mm).

TOS-1 is a Russian 220mm 30-barrel (original system, Ob.634 or TOS-1M) or 24-barrel (Ob.634B or TOS-1A) multiple rocket launcher and thermobaric weapon mounted on a T-72 tank chassis.

The TOS-1 is intended to engage military personnel, equipment, and buildings, including fortified constructions. The combat vehicle acts within the combat order of infantry and tanks. The large mass of the launcher and the need for a high-level of protection (due to the relatively short range of 3,500 m (11,500 ft)) helped determine the use of the chassis of the T-72 main battle tank.

I though the Crimea has been swallowed already by Russia and the whole situation has completely been buried. It looks like the fighting is still ongoing.

Sometimes it's hard to figure out the truth when it comes to to the reports on these conflicts.There are so many claims and counter-claims depending on which source the information is coming from. All I can hope for is the end to the conflict and the loss of lives and that the majority really gets what they are hoping for.
