Artillerymen burn down the fortifications of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with incendiary shells from the Grad MLRS

On one of the most tense sectors of the front near Bakhmut, Russian multiple launch rocket systems launched strikes with 9M22S incendiary ammunition on the fortifications of Ukrainian militants. A video of the fireworks from the Gradov operators appeared on social media channels covering the special operation.

Unlike the prohibited phosphorus munitions used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the 9M22S and 9M28S missiles are not prohibited by international conventions and rules of war. These projectiles use a magnesium mixture, which, when ignited, creates a combustion temperature of up to 2700 degrees Celsius. Each projectile carries up to 180 incendiary elements and inflicts serious damage to manpower and lightly armored technology the adversary.

In the course of the SVO, these systems were already used in the "smoke out" of nationalists from "Azovstal" during the liberation of Mariupol. The shelling of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Bakhmut should ensure the successful advancement of the assault detachments. The huge losses of the Ukrainian military forced them to switch from offensive operations to dead-end defense in this sector. Based on the experience gained in Mariupol, incendiary ammunition was used to crack the defense.

    Thermite is a thing! The BMP burns through the armor, I think what will happen next, probably the FAB-3000, maybe then we will start to fight?

    I remember how, as teenagers, they lit a fire on the shore of the lake, put a helicopter wheel in it ... Valiant police officers of the 80s model approached them, and the younger one pushed the already burning wheel into the water with a stick ... Never forget I heard the cry of the senior cop and how he threw everyone on the grass, and then kicked his subordinate along the shore for a long time.
    Magnesium is power!

    regardless of whether the RF Armed Forces have a target designation data transmission system (which they probably don’t use so as not to be merged), purely for the SVO it would be possible to quickly develop a similar system, which it’s not a pity to merge NATO.

    In order to be able to hit targets immediately at the moment they are detected by reconnaissance means. UAVs could be able to generate coordinates that are immediately transmitted to the gunners, who, in turn, have digital computers and instantly point the guns at the target and work out.

    All this should happen in real time, automated. Create a system only for SVO and work out experience on it. On this basis, create (or optimize) a system for the entire army and there already think about protecting encryption, hacking, etc.

      Why do you think that this is not done?

      Why do you think that this is not done? Most likely a lot is already being introduced.
