The Telegram channel War in Ukraine. Loss of equipment released the photos.

The gun was in a combat position on one of the sections of the front lines. It was equipped with anti-drone screens.

According to the photos distributed by the invaders themselves, the most likely cause of the destruction of the Giatsint-S self-propelled gun was the explosion of a shell in the gun barrel.

This indicates that Russian artillerymen were firing at Ukrainian positions, but lost their self-propelled gun due to an abnormal fuse or other malfunction.

It is not known whether there were any casualties or injuries among the enemy’s Giatsint-S crew, but the self-propelled gun is likely beyond repair due to significant damage to the chassis from the explosion and subsequent burning.

The Soviet-era 152-mm Giatsint-S self-propelled gun is designed to conduct counter-battery warfare, destroy firing points and field fortification, self-propelled guns and enemy tanks.

The maximum firing range is 27,000 meters when using conventional ammunition (some sources indicate different data — 28,400 meters).

Losses of the Russian invaders

The Ukrainian troops have repeatedly destroyed such Russian self-propelled guns using various weapons.

The operators of the 73rd Maritime Special Operations Center of the Armed Forces of Ukraine aimed the HIMARS system at the Russian Giatsint-S self-propelled gun. The Russian gun was spotted during reconnaissance operations in the southern sector.

The coordinates of the enemy target were promptly transferred to a missile and artillery unit of the Defense Forces.

The Russian self-propelled gun was hit by a GMLRS missile from the US M142 HIMARS rocket system. The missile exploded over the Giatsint-S and hit it with a large number of metal balls contained in the warhead.
