A funnel of 40 meters and a "lunar landscape": the results of stubborn battles near Izyum


The American company Maxar Technologies Inc., engaged in space technology and specializing in the production of communications satellites, Earth observation, radar and in-orbit services, satellite products and related services, published fresh photos from the hard-fought zone in Ukraine. Satellites have recorded how settlements are being destroyed, and fields are beginning to resemble lunar landscapes with many craters.


The first picture (placed at the beginning of the article) shows a huge crater, about 40 meters in diameter, in the village of Dolgenkoye, Izyumsky district, Kharkiv region. This is probably the result of a hit by ammunition from the Iskander family of OTRKs. What was in this place is unknown. The fighting for this village, which actually no longer exists, lasts two months.

The second image shows the condition of the fields and forest belts northwest of the city of Slovyansk in the Donetsk region. They are literally dotted with shell craters - a spitting image of a lunar landscape. Local combine operators with undisguised shudders are waiting for the harvest season, and one can only sympathize with them.


The third image shows the position of the MLRS in a field near the city of Severodonetsk in the Luhansk region.


The fourth shot captured the moment of explosions of artillery shells near the town of Dolyna in the Slavyansky district of the Donetsk region.


The fifth photo shows the explosions of artillery shells near the Seversky Donets River and the village of Bogorodichnoye, Dolinsky village council, Slavyansky district, Donetsk region.


Demining Donbass and other territories will no doubt take a long time.

    The lunar landscape speaks of the inefficiency of the artillery, of poor reconnaissance, that an incredible amount of ammo has been spent, resources of barrels, equipment, and supplies.

      - Yeah ! - Disgusting shooting - disgusting artillery fire control system !!! - The strikes of the bomber forces of the Aerospace Forces would be much more accurate and effective! - Yes, and ammunition would be required many times less! - But for some reason, VKS is never used "for real"!

    Good gentlemen, you even read Wikipedia. Roskosmos announced that the Sarmatian, after testing, left the depth of the funnel - about 8 meters. Diameter - 20 meters. Volume - about 1000 cubic meters. And what, excuse me, made a funnel of 40 or 80 meters?

      Gentlemen, everyone is in Paris), and pedagogy is such an argument ... for reference - Sarmat flew in with a blank (that's why such an uncomplicated funnel), Iskander smacks with blanks with us? (this is a matter of comparison) ... For the size of the funnel - this can also be the FAB 3000, which was thrown at Marik (Azovstal) ... Those who wish can get more detailed information about the "lunar landscape" through such an article (https://kenigtiger .livejournal.com/2148946.html)
