HIMARS Crushes Buk-M2 Air Defense System

A HIMARS strike destroys a Russian Buk-M2 air defense system with a proximity burst munition that erupts over its target and showers it with extremely dense tungsten projectiles resulting in the catastrophic destruction of the Russian system.


In the footage you can see the GMLRS guided rocket just before it explodes, and following the explosion you can see a small quadcopter drone surveying the destruction.


If and when Ukraine ever receives its promised Western strike fighter jets, it will need as many of these air defense systems neutralized as possible.
