Russia Launches Thermobaric Warheads at Ukrainian Targets: Report

Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts

A Russian thermobaric multiple rocket launcher that is mounted on a tank chassis fired at Ukrainian targets with devastating effects, according to reports from Russia military. The TOS-1A "Solntsepyok" vehicle, which has a multiple rocket launcher mounted on a T-72 tank chassis, is being deployed somewhere in Ukraine and reportedly firing thermobaric warheads at Ukrainian targets, as images reportedly show. There are 24 thermobaric projectiles in the package. They are capable of covering an area of up to 40 thousand square meters [430,000 square feet], while destroying lightly armored vehicles and fortifications.

"It is impossible to hide from the Solntsepeka volley even in trenches and dugouts: after a 200-kilogram [440 pounds] projectile hits the target, the thermobaric mixture dissipates in the air and explodes under tremendous pressure, creating a temperature of 3,000 degrees [5,400 degrees Fahrenheit]. Even steel armor melts in such an inferno."
