Russian Radar Smashed By Air Burst Artillery

Drone footage shows an air burst munition making a devastating strike on a Russian "Zoopark" counter battery radar system.


It's unclear if the munition used was an Excalibur guided artillery round or a guided rocket, but the proximity fuze causes the weapon to explode just over top of the target which rains down hundreds of tungsten fragments that absolutely perforate the thin skinned vehicle and destroy the sensitive electronics inside.
