Watch Incredible Javelin Strikes In Vuhledar – Dramatic video footage shared on TikTok and other social media networks back in February shows the incredible impact caused by Javelin missiles in Ukraine fired by the Pacific Fleet’s 155th Naval Infantry Brigade.
The footage also shows Russian T-80 tanks destroyed by the strikes, with tank operators attempting to maneuver the vehicles after they were hit.
The footage shows a dramatic explosion that creates a dust and smoke cloud rising dozens of feet into the air.
Just one of three BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles hit by the strikes can be seen in the video.
“Enemy equipment is on fire. The 155th brigade of the Pacific Fleet came under the fire of the Ukrainian Javelins of the 72nd brigade of the Black Zaporizhia in the suburb of Vugledar.
The video was also shared on social media by war analyst Rob Lee who also posted other videos, many of which were shared on Ukrainian Telegram channels, depicting more strikes against Russian BMP-3 and BMP-3 vehicles.
One video depicts four severely damaged BMP-2 and BMP-3 vehicles also in Vuhledar, as well as one IMR-2 tracked military engineering vehicle.
This time, the strikes were initiated by the 72nd Mechanized Brigade.
Ukraine Knows How to Kill Russian Tanks
In another clip back in February, a Russian T-80BVM tank can be seen in a state of total disrepair, with a fire erupting from the hull and huge plumes of thick smoke erupting from the top.
The tank was also destroyed somewhere near Vuhledar.
It is not known whether the tank operators survived, though if they were unable to escape the tank before the strike, the huge blaze would no doubt have killed them.
