The Ukrainian military destroyed an enemy air defense in the Kharkiv region. The border guards helped the artillerymen to hit the Russian self-propelled anti-aircraft gun "Shilka".

The military on the page of the GNSU published a video of the combat mission.

It was reported that during aerial reconnaissance in the Kharkiv region, border guards, along with other units of the Ukrainian Defense Forces, discovered a Russian air defense installation.

The Russians placed their installation in the forest at a prepared position near the road, probably the Shilka was supposed to cover the movement of the invaders and control the road.

This anti-aircraft installation, in addition to hitting air targets, can also fire at ground targets, including moving targets.

After being detected by a drone, the Shilka self-propelled anti-aircraft gun was hit by artillery fire and at least seriously damaged enemy equipment.

VSU-23-4 "Shilka" is a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun (APU), with four 23-mm automatic guns combined into a block, designed for direct air defense of ground forces.
