The video shows footage of russians boasting about their self-propelled mortar system as well as saying that it takes only 30 seconds to prepare the vehicle for combat and the same amount of time to wind down its job. However, this did not help the occupiers to protect their weapons from attack by the Defense Forces of Ukraine.

The 2S40 Floks is a russian wheeled self-propelled 120 mm mortar system. It uses a Ural-4320 6x6 truck chassis and has an armored crew and ammo compartments. The vehicle has a semi-automatic rifled gun, which allows firing of all types of mortar mines and shells.
