Return To Sender: Ukraine Locates and Destroys Russian MLRS Park

This drone footage depicts a Russian MLRS returning to its motor pool after firing missiles. Because it has been observed by the Ukrainian drone, the Ukrainians are able to drop accurate artillery fire onto the building, destroying it and the tank within.


The MLRS tank appears to be a TOS-1 type. These shorter-ranged MLRS systems have been in service in Russia since the late 1980s, with an initial firing range of .5-3 km that was later extended to 10km. Using this knowledge and the observation drone, which is able to pinpoint exactly where the TOS is within the building (what's behind door number 2?), the Ukrainians destroy the vehicle at 00:33. In a totally understandable decision, a Russian trooper runs for his life at 00:56.
