Ukrainian journalist Yuriy Butusov posted a video on the social network Telegram showing the moment when Ukrainian soldiers accurately hit the Russian heavy artillery system 2S5 Giatsint-S.

“An impressive video of the destruction of the Russian 152mm self-propelled artillery unit 2S5 ‘Giatsint-S’ with ammunition detonation,” he wrote.

He also added that the drone footage was from the combined group ‘Inquisition’ of the 59th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade.”

With a maximum firing rate of 5-6 rounds per minute, the vehicle carries up to 30 projectiles and includes a 7.62mm PKT machine gun for self-defense.
