As the officer of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Volodymyr notes, these missile systems have proven themselves very well, delivering "surgical strikes" on a number of targets, including manpower, equipment, command posts, etc.

Moreover, the accuracy of this system doesn’t suffer even at the maximum range of 84 km: the probable deviation at such a distance is only "plus or minus 7m".

The crews are satisfied with this system, Ukraine’s officer notes that it is as simple and effective as possible, and learning how to operate such a missile system is actually not difficult.

And the most important thing is that the vehicle is still in working condition and plans to effectively beat the russians in the future: "We maintain it in accordance with the regulations, lubricate the main components, we haven’t had any repairs and do not plan to."

Separately, Volodymyr talks about one of the combat tasks, where MARS II made the life of the russians much more difficult” it was necessary to hit the fuel tankers that had just arrived at the railway station at a certain time.

A total of 12 tankers were destroyed: "This meant that the maximum number of enemy equipment remained without fuel for a long time. They could not refuel the equipment and use it while shelling Ukrainian cities."
