"The artillerymen of the 44th Air Assault Brigade refute the proverbial saying 'chasing two birds with one stone, you will not catch one'. The gunners, effectively reducing the number of occupants, destroyed the occupiers' 2C5 self-propelled gun, which in turn took another combat unit to hell with it, hitting it with its ammunition at a distance of 70 meters," the description under the video reads.

For reference: The 2S5 Hyacinth-S is a Russian self-propelled artillery system. The main weapon of the 2S5 Hyacinth-S is a 152-mm howitzer, which has a range of about 30 kilometers with conventional shells and more than 40 kilometers with special shells. The system has automated fire control and can use both single shots and massive artillery preparation.

The 2S5 Hyacinth-S provides fire support for combat formations and tactical formations. It can be used to fire on enemy manpower, engineering and defense structures. This self-propelled artillery system has good maneuverability and can operate both in open fire and from a position.
