The Ukrainian Defense Forces detected and destroyed two Russian Pantsir-S1 air defense systems in the Belgorod region.

Soldiers of the 3rd Rapid Reaction Brigade “Spartan” of the National Guard of Ukraine showed the damaged systems.

“After that, Russian combat vehicles were hit and disabled,” the military said.

The first Pantsir-S1 SAM was discovered in a field between the city of Belgorod and the village of Dubove.

The Pantsir-S1 system was constantly on duty at this location and did not change its position, as evidenced by the traces of the vehicle.

The second air defense system was discovered by reconnaissance drones near Borisovka.

US M142 HIMARS rocket systems presumably hit both systems.

The destruction of the Pantsir-S1 in the Belgorod region allows Ukrainian forces to deter the Russian offensive in the Kharkiv region more effectively.

The Pantsir-S1 was used to shoot down reconnaissance drones and GMLRS projectiles launched from HIMARS.

Such a defeat forces the Russian command to withdraw other systems to safer areas, reducing the effectiveness of overall air defense in this sector.

As previously reported, this possibility was made possible by the fact that the United States allowed the Ukrainian military to use American weapons on Russian territory.
