Ukrainian Self-Propelled Gun Takes Direct Hit

Published July 6, 2022

Footage released by Russian sources shows the destruction of what is believed to be a DANA M2 Self-Propelled Gun. It's unclear when and where this footage was recorded.


An unfortunate reality of the situation on the ground in Ukraine is that more and more footage is being released with a serious lack of context. While this footage appears to show Russian artillery scoring a direct hit on a Ukrainian M2 Self-Propelled Gun, it's unclear what the state of the weapon system was before the hit was recorded.


On top of not being sure if the weapon system was active or disabled when this hit was recorded, we also don't know where this action was filmed, which means we're not getting a whole lot of context to how this impacts the conflict overall. For all we know, this M2 has been disabled in that field for weeks or months, and the Russians are just now getting around to destroying it. Due to the nature of the information war, it would be all too easy for the Russians to record this with a drone to chalk it up as a direct win on any front-line they're currently struggling with.


There's also the very real possibility that we're looking at legitimate footage of the Ukrainian artillery piece being destroyed. There's honestly just no way to be sure from the footage alone. Additional context is always required, especially on these macro-level drone shots.
