Ukrainian Armored Assault Faces Heavy AT Fire

A new angle of an incident we recently previously archived shows a Ukrainian armored assault come under heavy fire by Russian anti tank fire resulting in multiple destroyed vehicles. The battle reportedly occurred on or around July 27, 2023 and was geolocated to just east of the contested town of Robotyne in the Zaporizhzhia region.


While the brutal imagery is being used by pro Russian media outlets as a demonstrated Ukrainian failure, the battle actually happened much further south into Russian-held territory than any previous Ukrainian push.


Additionally, geolocated footage has shown that the Ukrainians have driven the Russian forces back to the main Surovikin defensive line east of Robotyne. So, while Ukrainian forces are certainly taking heavy losses as they grind out their counteroffensive operations, they are also making significant forward gains. The fate of the counteroffensive is still very much up in the air, regardless of how either side spins the information.
