Ukraine destroys Russia’s S-400 surface-to-air missile in Belgorod using HIMARS rocket artillery

The Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed another russian S-400 surface-to-air missile system using HIMARS rocket artillery.

A photo appeared showing the result of the successful work of Ukrainian Rocket Forces that hit an expensive and important target, the S-400 SAM system.

The location of the system is known to be at the old airfield in Belgorod. The photos and videos really show the damage of equipment of this SAM system.

According to unconfirmed information, two launchers were destroyed and another one damaged. The 96L6 radar and control point were destroyed. There are allegedly no losses in manpower, but it seems unrealistic. The attack took place on 3 June 2024.

It should be noted that this strike was filmed by local residents, who also recorded HIMARS attacks.

It should be noted that Mospyno is 40 kilometers from the frontline. And at this range, the SAM system was in the strike zone not only of HIMARS, but also of GMLRS rockets with a range of up to 80 km, including a logical retreat from the front edge.

At the same time, russians brought the S-400 to that distance for some reason. Maybe because of feeling safe, or needing to close the air defense gap in this particular area, or trying to use their SAM system for long-range strikes. But in any case, russians have lost another air defense system.
