Shadow Unit Destroys Russian SPH With Crew Present

Footage from the Ukrainian drone-specialty Shadow Unit shows a successful loitering munition attack against a Russian 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled howitzer with the crew present.


The artillery vehicle had its main gun oriented off center, suggesting it was actively providing fire support for Russian ground troops when it was struck. Additional drone footage shows the strike resulted in a fire and cook off of the Russian SPH, resulting in its destruction.
