Russian Forces Are Hunting Nationalists In Azovstal With Guided Heavy Mortar Rounds

Illustrative image.

The Russian military is reportedly hunting the remaining nationalists of the Azov Battalion in the Azovstal steel plant near the city of Mariupol with guided heavy mortar rounds.

On May 13, a photo showing a Russian 2S4 Tyulpan 240 mm self-propelled heavy mortar firing a 1K113 Smelchak laser-guided round at the Azovstal plant surfaced online. Hundreds of Azov nationalists, many of whom are wounded, are still holding up inside the plant despite running low on food, water and ammunition.

The Smelchak 240 mm mortar round, which is guided by a semi-active laser, can be fired by the 2S4 Tyulpan or the towed M240 mortar. The round has a range of 9.2 kilometers and a warhead of 21 kg of high explosive.

A land-based laser designator is usually used to illuminate targets for the Smelchak. However, drones equipped with designators can be also used for that task.

Smelchak rounds are likely being used to target fortified positions and reinforced buildings in the Azovstal plant where Azov nationalists are talking shelter.

The Russian military operates other types of guided mortar and artillery rounds, like the 152 mm Krasnopol round or the Kitolov-2 and 2M mortar and artillery shells that can be fired from 120 and 122 guns, respectively. All of these rounds are guided by semi-active laser, just like the Smelchak.

The use of precision-guided mortar and artillery rounds allows the Russian military to hit military targets in urban areas with high precisions from a safe-distance and without causing any real collateral damage.

Its phase Z and you are about of being smoked by a Rusky justice grenade.

They are reviving all the dead orcs as zombies now to get around the missing manpower, that surely can be called phase Z. 🤷🤭

You have become a seriously boring and repetitive bot. Go get a life before a Russian puts an end to your miserable existence.

Mariupol was 100% liberated

So no 100% after all? Has been what, 3 months?

Lexi

Yea, really humiliating, how the Azov Nazi scum lost the battle!

Clyde

This is how the failed Ukrianian CIA project wins. By losing slowly. The thousands of square km of territory lost by the failed Ukrainian CIA project is just evidence of their double-secret winning.

Crazycanuck

LOL russia is phuccin toast dumbazz .

3 months of Azov running like the cowards they are, looking for more human shields, because Nazis are cowards.

Nice fanfic now back to reality:

Pentagon: arms supplies to Ukraine from the United States may be suspended if the Senate does not support the project on the allocation of new aid by May 19, 2022.

Sorry, resident gay. Ukraine isn’t doing so well.

The Russian army caused damage to the military-industrial complex of Ukraine in the amount of more than UAH 100 billion

“At the same time, the assessment of the scale of destruction has just begun and is intermediate,” Ukroboronprom said.

Vlad butcha orc

What does that have to do with high precision bragging?

Oh, you are using whataboutism to deflect from the real issue.

As if the Russian economy would do good right now … 🤷🤭

Got some chips or semi conductors? Nope. How is high precision working without that, when the storages are used up?

Peter Jennings

The Kiev regime maybe about to lose its promised US funding, as it’s having trouble passing through the highly corrupt US congress. One of only a few honest congressmen there is trying to prevent it. Maybe the Kiev regime didn’t kill enough civilians or something?

LOL good one dude , the ruskies really do believe this shit eh.

It’s an opportunity to innovate and experiment as to the best way to deal with holed up Ukrainian Nazis. It appears that Russia just can’t resist the temptation to just keep pounding these Ukrainian Nazi vermin. Maybe also Russia should open a competition for methods to eradicate the holed up Ukrainian Nazis, with a prize – everything is competition based and gamified these days. Crash a Soyuz, Crash some leased Boeings, pump fuel in, infected rats with bubonic plague – let’s get inventive! Wars are one of the fastest and best environments to drive innovation.

Can’t wait for the plan to mess with the Ukronazis in the Odessa catacombs. I hope they all go down deep in them. Entrances are known and will be sealed. What fun.

My entry is based on the same tactic the US/CIA employed against General Noriega in Panama with non-stop heavy metal played at maximum volume.

The Russian version would be Eduard Khil’s Trololo Song played on an endless loop at 120dB

Noise beyond the threshold of pain or even infra sound to rip the Ukrainian Nazi guts apart – nice entry!

Unless Ruskies are using laser guided ammo, they’re wasting rounds in such a fortified place.

Vlad butcha orc

Which part wasn’t hit at least twice there? A third time changes what? 🤷

RedKitten

I wouldn’t call it “wasting”, though they are pounding them down like 100s of rockets and shelling a day almost. But I have seen in some videos some are blown up in inside, even in this fortified place, many amputated or torn to pieces and died. I am thinking they’re testing their rockets on how to destroy this kind of fortified place for future battles.

Practice make perfect

Flood the catacombs with water. Slowly. And the Azovs will appear.

Azov very good at shelling Babushkas from 10km in Donbas …… And fairly good when they’ve got some civilians to hide behind in Mariupol….. But on their own those boneheads aren’t very clever at all. Those tattoos don’t make you a real soldier ……. just an easy target. No wonder Zelensky abandoned them .

Anyone normal would have come out by now with their hands up and to get their wounded treated,so this is bigger than a few Nazi Apes,they have something big to hide.

they will just be tortured and executed , i guess that is incentive enough not to surrender

pumpern

They fully deserved that, but they can shoot themselves, like their heroes did, when they lost WWII.

No they won’t Russians have been taking prisoners and not killing them,but those Azov could be on trial.

Yes, the NATO officers!

10 times better than the Chechen girls or the wagner faggs.

I bet you would love to date those Chechen girls and be taken over as they usually take over Ukronazis quite quickly.

Well, finally we see a use for this Tyulpan as a siege mortar. Very little use for it otherwise. Too short range, too long to fire, lacking mobility, super vulnerable to counter-battery fire, but in the tradition of the German Wehrmacht’s siege of Sevastopol, it has a purpose: Reducing an isolated enemy fortress to rubble. This kind of situation must have been contemplated by Russia.

The Azov have running water inside their underground complex. I do not know where the stop valve may be and it is unlikely to be outside, more likely inside. Who knows where the water is coming in from, there may be deep underground rivers that they are tapping into.

On the end there will be no more fighting capable Azov fighters as they will be either dead or left rotting away wounded in Azovstal catacombs. That’s the reality.
