Ukrainian artillery has blown up two Russian 220mm heavy rocket launchers during its southern offensive.
The footage, released by the Ukrainian military, shows two Russian BM-27 Uragan rocket launchers spewing flames and thick, black smoke after they were hit in Ukrainian artillery strikes.
The multiple rocket launchers can be seen exploding after a first strike that leaves the BM-27 Uragans alight.
The Ukraine Weapons Tracker OSINT group reported that Uragan rocket launchers were destroyed by GMLRS strikes of the Ukrainian army in the Zaporizhzhia region. Also, an OSINT expert noted that one of the launchers was fitted with a cope cage against small bomblets dropped by commercial drones.
