The Ukrainian web portal is distributing a video by Ukrainian volunteer Oleksandr Karpyuk showing the moment the target was hit. However, it is not clear when exactly the incident happened, as the Ukrainian media did not provide information about it.

According to Oleksandr Karpyuk, the Ukrainian military hit the pro-Russian target at a distance of 5.6 km. “Javelins are not the only ones. Meet Stugna-P [Ukrainian anti-tank missile system]. In the video, two objects are worth noting, Stugna-P and the Ural truck” says Oleksandr Karpyuk and adds “When the Russian Federation still decides to roll out its iron on the horizon, its meeting will be enchanting.”

More about Stugna-P ATGM

Stugna-P is a Ukrainian-made anti-tank missile system from the state-owned company Luch. Its characteristics allow it to successfully oppose armored vehicles, including tanks. According to Ukrainian sources, Stugna-P can successfully port even the most modern armored vehicles equipped with active anti-tank protection.

The Stugna-P can launch 130mm and 152mm missiles, the most common of which are the RK-2S, RK-2OF, RK-2M-K, and RK-2M-OF guided missiles. They can be equipped with different types of warheads: tandem cumulative, high-explosive fragmentation, or thermobaric.

Stugna-P has a laser beam guidance system, but unlike more modern anti-tank missile systems, the Ukrainian is semi-automatic. The Stugna-P also has a remote control and video guidance, which gives the soldier safety.

The Ukrainian anti-tank missile system is equipped with a launcher and a tripod, a missile container, a device for semi-automatic laser guidance, and remote control.
