Destruction of the Russian “Solntsepyok” Heavy MLRS 

Ukrainian artillerymen destroyed a heavy flamethrower system with reactive ammunition

On June 13, Ukrainian aerial reconnaissance in the direction of Zaporizhzhia identified the location of the Russian Solntsepyok salvo flamethrower system and gave the coordinates to the 47th separate mechanized brigade of Magura. Magura, in turn, destroyed the entire Russian heavy installation.

How dangerous is the Solntsepyok. Developed in the Soviet Union, this system uses high temperatures and a shock wave to destroy and burn cars, buildings, and people. The system works with bulky 220-mm unguided projectiles, the power of which is equivalent to small nuclear detonations. These projectiles are also called "vacuum", although this is not entirely true.
