Rocket "Smerch" pierced through the engine of the Armenian military ZIL

Ракета «Смерча» насквозь прошила двигатель армянского военного ЗИЛа

The 9M528 rocket pierced through the engine compartment of the Armenian army truck ZIL-131 and got stuck in the ground.


The rocket, seven meters long, was fired by the 9K58 Smerch multiple launch rocket system. Its missile part, having separated from the head, literally "nailed" the car to the ground, breaking through the engine. At the same time, the ZIL crew was not injured, because if the rocket had not deviated by several centimeters, it could have got into the truck cabin, which would have led to casualties.

MLRS "Smerch" caliber 300 mm is actively used in the course of the Karabakh conflict by both sides. According to 2016 data, Azerbaijan has 30 Smerch 9A52 units in service, Armenia has 6 such units (data of 2019).

As reported by the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan, the forces of Baku managed to destroy two such Armenian systems. Yerevan, in turn, denies these data.

    Yes, the driver experienced wonderful moments ... The complaint to the Tornado system is indicative, not only space rockets do not take off, but they do not explode with a smaller caliber, this is what the abolition of the military acceptance by Serdyukov means ...

    .. it can be a projectile without charge .... - In this case, it (the rocket) must have at least a pointed shape; and even better ... - even very hard (I don't know ... - maybe even from a very hard metal) ... - tip ..
    - Otherwise ... as if an unsharpened pipe with a diameter of 300 mm ... -could like a knife through oil ... -punch through the engine; and even sink into the ground ...
    - This "pipe" could simply knock the engine out of its mount and get stuck in it ... - And the engine would be on the ground ... - under the machine itself ...
    - Or this ZIL-131 simply does not have an engine (empty hood);
    - Or this blank rocket has a very strong pointed tip ...
    -Otherwise, the "dull" (without a tip) body of this rocket pipe ... it would simply be crumpled and could not pierce anything and anyone (even more so the engine) ...

      The rocket sticks out at an angle, it passed between the engine and the cooling radiator. Perhaps damaged the fan and radiator, the end stuck into the ground under the bumper!
      Apparently the commentators never opened the hood of the ZIL, the specialists are sucking!

      This "pipe", 5,5 meters long and weighing almost 600 kilograms, flies at a speed of up to 1000 m / s. Having a fairly rigid body, and a small annular cross-section, it has a huge penetrating effect.

      Not an armored car, together with the engine and all the personal belongings, for such a "pipe" is the same as a tin can for a bayonet knife.

    - Generally ... - Well., To be pinned and not to live ...
    -There ... here ... there is someone who does not get off the couch and at least understands something ...
    - Pipe 300 mm in the very center of the hood; and at an angle (from right to left; and from the windshield to the side to the bumper); occupying the entire center of the hood, all this space that the engine should occupy freely passes; then somehow passes (pierces) through the entire front axle of the car ...; moreover, it pierces quite deeply into the ground ...
    - Well, Hahah ... - and only ...
    - It even becomes scary ... - Who will fight against the enemies of Russia ??? And defend Russia ??? - Once again ... personally, I repeat ...: - "Yes, here in general ... someone served in the army ???" - Well, goaaaa ...

      then somehow passes (pierces) the entire front axle of the car ...

      The front axle was left slightly behind the entered "pipe". Came out in front almost under the bumper. This can be clearly seen in the photograph.

      Yes, here in general ... someone served in the army ???

    aluminum v-shaped figure eight, the bridge is obviously not very much touched ... the only thing painfully stands still, with such a blow.
