The Russian army did not spare the Iskander missiles to destroy the Ukrainian Pion


Over the past day, Ukrainian militants have lost more than a dozen units of heavy armored equipment. In particular, the means of objective control recorded the destruction of the 2S7 Pion self-propelled gun by the Iskander complex missile.


Despite its venerable age, "Peony" is still quite a formidable weapon. The caliber of the gun is 203 mm, the firing range is slightly less than 40 km, and in the case of using an active-rocket projectile, up to 50 km.


In addition, according to General Konashenkov, today, near the village of Krasnogorovka in the DPR, they managed to destroy two American M777 artillery systems and a German FH-70 howitzer, from which shelling of the peaceful quarters of Donetsk was carried out. Three MLRS "Grad" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were lost near Seversk, and in the Kharkov region three howitzers "Msta-B" were hit.

In the Zaporozhye region, a precise blow was delivered to a warehouse with weapons and military equipment near the village of Gulyaipole. One tank, four armored vehicles and 80 enemy soldiers were destroyed in the Donetsk direction of the front. As a representative of the Ministry of Defense noted at a daily briefing, the Ukrainian army suffers serious losses of equipment and personnel in all sections of the line of contact.

      If there were 200 rockets from Hymars and there were just holes.
      How much Iskander is needed to make one bridge like this?
      We need our own DRGs, so that they are like in Kherson. Lay mines under the span.
      And in the USSR everything was built for centuries

        Iskander has 20 times more TNT and can dig a hefty hole. A few successfully hit missiles can completely break the canvas.

    The fact that Iskander is spent on a cannon, even if 203 mm, leads to sad reflections.
    Moreover, judging by the negotiations with Iran with missiles, it is also not easy for us.

      Almost like in the movie "Best in Hell". The target is one large-caliber gun. But there is a lot of harm from her shells, so there’s no time for financial calculations.

    depending on which bridge. There is no Antonovsky type. And 5 missiles will not be enough.

      Bridges are needed in order to lure as many troops as possible into the boilers. The bridge will be blown up, the rest will be killed without leaving the ticket office. Just blow it up like that, no income.

    Campaign, they just couldn’t get Peony stupidly at that time. Rather, it was already a gesture of desperation. An unequal exchange, however. But it happens.

    I wonder if it is possible to bomb from a high altitude, say 10 km, with large bombs left in warehouses after WW2 and later? Or do they no longer exist? Carpet bombing, let the bombs fly wherever they hit, on the Heimers or the Hohlovermacht.

      Have you forgotten about the current air defense of Ukraine? 10 km for air defense is a training target.

        So after all, Konashenkov has "destroyed" it, Ukrainian air defense, dozens of times!

      If it were possible, they would bomb every day, and maybe the whole operation would have been completed by now. However, Buki, s300, now the Patriot will not let us fly over the line of contact

    And don't be sorry!
    The less cannon artillery the Armed Forces of Ukraine have, the easier it is for Donbass and our soldiers.

    There are Geraniums 1 and 2 remote-controlled, and spending a tactical missile on Pion is the stupidity of our army chiefs, it’s out of hopelessness, let’s start destroying tanks with Iskanders, morons!

      Perhaps they were checking, suddenly a patriot arrived at the front line. Then he would have shot down the Iskander

      Dmitry, if the Russian army did not spare Iskander for the destruction of Peony, then this only means that our Iskanders will never end. But a lot of morons won't believe that, right?

    The barrel resource of the "Peony" is small. Surely, he was already gouged, he beat "on whom he would send Bandera."
