Ukrainian drone strikes Russian self-propelled artillery

The Ukraine Armed Forces continued to release footage showing what it said were successful strikes against Russian forces using the Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 drone.

A new video clip shows footage of the armed drone destroying the 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled howitzer of the invader’s troops in the Kherson region.

The Akatsiya is a Soviet-era 152mm self-propelled gun. It was a response to the American 155 mm M109.

The 2S3 is always in service in the Russian armed forces and is used by several other countries in the world.
