In the Kharkiv region, the Ukrainian military discovered enemy equipment and used Brimstone missiles on it.

This was announced and the video was published by Ukrainian serviceman Leonid Maslov.

The video shows the defeat of two units of equipment by British missiles.

It is reported that the combat use of Brimstone missiles took place in the area of ​​the settlement of Male Vesele .

" The peculiarity of the missile is that it automatically captures targets, reacting to the mass of metal within a radius of 2 km from the launch point. Therefore, their armored vehicles and peaceful tractor drivers, who suddenly fall into the flight zone, will not be lucky , ”Leonid Maslov said in a comment to the video.

The Ukrainian military used a light truck to launch Brimstone missiles.

In April, Britain studied the platforms on which Brimstone missiles could be installed so that they could be used effectively by the Ukrainian military.

At the training launches, the Armed Forces of Ukraine placed Brimstone missile launchers on cars.
