The Zvezdanews Telegram channel published footage of the combat work of the crew of the Russian T-80 tank in the area of the Torsky salient in the Krasnolimansky direction. The publication notes that the fighters received information about the enemy’s deployment in the forest belt and moved to positions to hit the target.
When firing from three to four tanks, a very large area is covered, that is, there is no need to use a spotter, and the spread of the shells is quite large. With such shooting, we cover a field of 500 by 500 meters,” the channel quotes the words of the commander of a tank company with the call sign “Meren.”
Earlier on Thursday, January 18, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced the suppression of more than 40 field artillery crews of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) during the counter-battery fight. In addition, a Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicle was hit by air defense systems.
