The Russian BTR-80 showed amazing survivability during the battle with the mercenaries of the American PMC

Russian weapons in Ukraine demonstrate their exceptional quality, which is shown by the practice of fighting Ukrainian nationalists and mercenaries from other countries.

So, a video of a battle between Russians and American mercenaries from PMCs, during which a Russian BTR-80 was fired from a German MATADOR grenade launcher, got into social networks. Despite this, the armored personnel carrier continued to move. The relevant footage was filmed both on behalf of the militants and from a quadrocopter.

In addition, three grenades from Swedish AT-4 launchers hit the armored personnel carrier. Thus, the Russian technique showed her amazing resilience.

Meanwhile, the Politico newspaper reported on the participation of American mercenaries in the battles on the side of Kyiv in early May. Trained US citizens take part in the hostilities, while the rest who wish send monetary and humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov noted in an interview with the Italian television company Mediaset that the United States and Canada took part in the combat training of ultra-Nazi formations so that they would join the regular Ukrainian army and take leadership positions there. The presence of neo-Nazis in the Armed Forces of Ukraine betrays the fact that many captured militants wear the appropriate insignia (symbols and tattoos) on their clothes and on their bodies.

    Based on the movie shown, I did not understand what kind of survivability we are talking about. What didn't shatter into pieces? Well, it shouldn't have. A couple of holes in the armor are enough for no one to survive inside. If, after the hits, he continued to maneuver and fire, then of course everything is correct. But that's exactly what they didn't show. God bless our boys!

      THIS is why the video is not shown to the end when our equipment is not affected and is fighting! And they show the video to the end, when the equipment explodes and burns.

    It was just lucky that there was a lot of property on the armor, which played the role of spaced armor

      So the video shows the defeat. But "survivability" is just not visible. No, I'm looking at the "evidence of successes" from the Russian side and I just can't get discouraged that everything is really so bad that there is nothing to brag about? Even in small things? That misses the target, that's it, as in the video .... A disgrace. sad

    Why did the crew of our armored personnel carrier have to climb in the forest belt? What kind of game?
