Armed Forces of Ukraine hit two Russian Buk SAM systems
The Ukrainian military have hit two launchers of the Buk-M2 anti-aircraft missile system of the Russian invaders.
Once detecting the position of the enemy’s anti-aircraft warfare, Ukrainian artillery struck them.
The video featuring the destruction of Russian anti-aircraft missile systems was published on the OMEGA COMPANY Telegram channel.
The launchers, presumably of the Buk-M1-2, were found covering Russian troops in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine in two different locations.
In the first published video, a Ukrainian reconnaissance drone recorded the defeat of a Russian anti-aircraft missile system with a precision artillery shell.
Immediately after the projectile hit, the anti-aircraft missiles that were on the launcher exploded, followed by the characteristic burning of rocket fuel with the emission of a large amount of thick white smoke.
Observers on social networks assume that the launcher was damaged in the Luhansk region.
Judging by the power of the explosion and burning, the launcher of the Buk-M1-2 anti-aircraft missile system received significant damage and likely completely burned out.
The second video features damage to another self-propelled launcher, also presumably Buk-M1-2.
However this time, a projectile fired by Ukrainian artillery exploded near the launcher. An Excalibur guided artillery shell was used for the strike. Fragments of ammunition damaged the TELAR and the missile on it.
The video recorded the non-ТОЕ launch of an anti-aircraft missile that flew low above the ground and emitted smoke.
The launcher of the Russian anti-aircraft missile system was damaged, but did not catch fire.
Buk anti-aircraft missile system
The Buk air defense system is a Soviet medium-range anti-aircraft missile system. It is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise missiles, helicopters, and other air threats.
The 9А310М1-2 TELAR of the Buk-М1-2 SAM is fully autonomous and highly mobile, reconnoitering targets in airspace, as well as launching missiles regardless of other units of the system.
Full autonomy and the ability to fire without associated radars are ensured due to installation of its own radar on board.
The time of transfer of the system from a stow configuration to a deployed configuration is slightly more than 5 minutes. Switching to combat mode is no more than 20 seconds. Reloading with missiles is carried out in 12 minutes.
