The russian federation is losing weapons not only thanks to the skillful actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but also in the course of intensive exploitation and relocation of equipment.
In particular, on Thursday, August 11, in the area of the city of Armavir in the Krasnodar Krai, as a result of a road accident, a transport-charger of the Iskander mobile short range ballistic missile system (BMS) complex was badly damaged, local Russian mass media reported.
According to their reports, Iskander" collided with a KamAZ truck. As a result of the incident, people were trapped in the cab of the car, who had to be freed by rescuers.
Taking into account the fact that the cabin of the Iskander vehicle is armored, but it was damaged by the impact, it seems that one can only guess about the force of the collision.
It should be noted that, according to available information, near Armavir the only military unit armed with Iskander BMS in the Krasnodar Territory is the 47th Missile Brigade of the Russian Federation (Permanent deployment point: Stanytsia Dyadkovska).
By the way, this is not the first adventure in which the enemy loses the Iskander BMS "on equal ground". In particular, the other day in the temporarily occupied part of the Kharkiv region, the REM-KS repair and evacuation vehicle from the same complex was drowned in the Stary Oskil River.
Also a video of the "epic collision" of the "Pion" ACS with the bridge in Novorossiysk appeared oh Friday. As a result of the collision, most likely, the artillery system will undergo a long-term repair.
By the way, this is not the first documented case of the Russian military's "brave struggle" with bridges by ramming them with military equipment. In particular, at the end of April this year the russians damaged the extremely expensive Zoopark-1M counter-battery radar.
