In the occupied part of the Kherson region, Ukrainian defenders continue to destroy Russians and their equipment. During aerial reconnaissance, they identified a rare, state-of-the-art 1K148 Yastreb-AV artillery reconnaissance system.
The enemy complex moved into position and aerial reconnaissance corrected the work of Ukrainian artillerymen against it. In total, two precise strikes were carried out from the American HIMARS rocket launcher with GMLRS missiles. An explosion occurred and a column of fire and smoke rose above the Yastreb-AV.
It is worth noting that the Russians recently announced that they had begun to use this counter-battery system in the war in Ukraine. It entered service with the Russian army in the second half of 2023. The occupiers keep the characteristics of the complex secret. It is known that this radar is built on a four-axle BAZ-6910-025 chassis and is capable of automatically tracking the flight path of projectiles.
“Not even six months have passed, or rather even a day! Just yesterday, Russian propaganda media vied with each other to report that the Russian occupation forces received the latest 1K148 Yastreb-AV artillery reconnaissance system. And now, today a video appears of the destruction of this complex in the Kherson region,” wrote Alexander Kovalenko, a military-political observer of the Information Resistance group.
