(NSFW) Ukrainian Self-Propelled Artillery Drops Hurt On Russians

This footage, provided by the Ukrainian military, shows a S21 “Gvozdika” 122-millimeter self-propelled cannon and its crew relocating, setting up, and firing on Russian infantry and positions. This footage is juxtaposed with spotter drone footage of the hits, including casualties. Viewer discretion is advised.


This footage suggests that Ukraine’s self-propelled artillery doctrine was written by DMX in the late 1990s and consists of three phases- (1) stop, (2) drop, (3)shut ‘em down, open up shop.


(1) Stop: The crew is shown riding in and on top of the Gvozdika as it moves to its next firing location (a practice that has routinely proven to be a spectacularly bad decision for Russians, but I digress). A spotter drone finds Russian infantry and the buildings they’re occupying (here, sped up).


(2) Drop: Right at 0:30, we see the crew launch a 122-millimeter shell downrange.


(3) Shut ‘em Down, etc.: At 0:48 seconds, the building the Russians use for cover largely ceases to be. The Gvozdika crew then reverts to Phase One.
