Interestingly, this is the fourth TOS-1A Solntsepek heavy flamethrower system that the russians lost on the battlefield during October, 2023. Footage of the destruction of the previous vehicle was released on October 20, 13, and 7, respectively.

According to Oryx, in October, the Defense Forces of Ukraine broke the record for the destruction of enemy flamethrower systems. The latest case of destruction is the 12th TOS-1A system lost by the occupiers since February 2022.

It is also worth paying attention to the fact that three out of four TOS-1A Solntsepek in October were destroyed precisely by strike drones, which can easily turn this system into ashes, especially if it is loaded with ammunition.
