In Video: Russian Strike Hit Battery Of French-Made CAESAR Howitzers In Ukraine

File image.

The Russian military continues to hunt down the heavy weapons which were recently supplied by the West to Kiev forces.

On August 11, Russian sources shared footage showing a Russian strike on a battery of three French-made CAESAR 155 mm self-propelled howitzers near an unspecified front in Ukraine. The strike destroyed or damaged the howitzers and their ammunition.

Manufactured by the partly state-owned arms maker Nexter Systems, the CAESAR is a 155mm 52-caliber howitzer mounted on a six-wheeled truck chassis. The howitzer can fire up to six rounds per minute and has a firing range of around 42 kilometers using ERFB [extended range, full bore] shells, and up to 55 kilometers using rocket assisted shells.

France has supplied at least 18 CAESAR howitzers to Kiev forces since the beginning of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine.

Several of Ukraine’s newly-acquired CAESAR howitzers have been already destroyed or damaged by the Russian military and its allies. At least two were also sold by Kiev regime officials to Russia via arms dealers, according to recent reports.

Despite receiving hundreds of artillery systems from their Western allies, Kiev forces are still struggling to overcome the fire power of Russian military. Western attempt to prop up Ukraine’s offensive capabilities appears to be destined to fail.

According to the most recent briefing by the Russian Ministry of Defense, Kiev forces have lost 797 multiple rocket launchers as well as 3290 howitzers, field guns and mortars since the beginning of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine.

If you don’t see the vehicle destroyed then you aren’t a true pro Russia man

Its pretty clear one unit was hit, what it was, is not clear ammo truck possibly. its also clear two 155 guns were not hit in this video and we can see the drivers running to move them. What happened next was either they were hit or they were driven away. My guess would be they were not hit at all or the video would be longer…..showing them destroyed. That being said the impacts of the Russian rounds were very close and they would likely have been damaged to some degree movable or not.

Trying to fight a modern war without air cover is like trying to masturbate with sandpaper. All pain no gain, you have to be a demented masochist.

They didnt hit any howitzer here, on footage you can see just ammo hit. Another russia cheap propaganda and wishfull thinking. They need to cover up destroyed airbase with their 15 fighter jets . Guys, just take a look how they cut video to make you think that they hit ceasar, its mindblowing…….its just russian desperation.

Of course, of course, the Russians NEVER hit ANYTHING, right?

Just civilians, correct?

That’s why 25% of Ukraine is controlled by the Russian forces, is it?

The EU is appendage of the US/NATO, this is why it needs to be dismantled. So that sovereignty can be restored and European nations can begin to work towards serving the interest of it’s own people.

It is unlikely the war in Ukraine would have existed had it not been for the corrupt officials of Brussels bending over for their masters in Washington DC.

They destroy 10+ warplanes and Russia destroys a howitzer in every week. Great victory for the Russians.

The destroyed nothing. The Russians are the victim of their own occupational health and safety mistakes.

In the meantime, while you gloat about 10 warplanes, the russians have wiped out the entire Ukrainian airforce and navy.

Sephiroth

In your dream. They are still flying and conducting air strikes on the russians.

Arch Bungle

Can’t be True. No Caesars were hit. No Hymars. No M777s.

The Russians never hit anything. Just civilians.

Not a single Ukie soldier has died. Not a meter of Ukrainian land has been occupied. The brave Azovis of Mariupol still hold the city.

The invasion never happened.

It’s … all … Russian … propaganda.

It is not clear to me that the Russians do not have a UAV in the range of Bayraktar, the one that destroy a target with a missile while UHD filming and while there is a crew around it? almost every fucking shot is just fucking scouting and aiming artillery?! is it possible that you are so far behind the west in that part??? if you had 100 drones as a baryaktar, I guarantee that the Ukrainians would have surrendered by now because torture with that kind of drones. It’s just not clear to me, you send fucking rockets into space, you have some kind of Sarmat high tech crap that you will never use (at least Putin swears that you won’t) planes, tanks, ships, cruise missiles, nuclear submarines and you don’t have a fucking usable drone. Unbelievable!

Ironically I read Julius Caesar killed 100,000 people in Gaul,(modern day France) to teach them obedience. Why tf would they name their weapon after some guy who killed a whole ton of their people? Maybe Jens Holm would be able to answer that question.
