An unsuccessful shot from a Soviet 130-mm cannon in Syria hit the video - the gun was blown to pieces

An unsuccessful shot from a Soviet-style 130mm cannon smashed the gun to pieces.

At the disposal of the news agency was a unique video that captured the moment of an unsuccessful shot from a 130 mm. Soviet field gun. For unknown reasons, the projectile detonated right in the barrel - the consequences for the jihadists were truly dire.

In the video footage presented, you can see how the jihadists, using a previously captured Soviet M-46 cannon of 130 mm caliber, are trying to fire a shot in the direction of the positions of the Syrian army, however, just a split second after the shot, the barrel of the gun is torn - it literally evaporated.

“After they fired a shot, there was a powerful explosion that completely destroyed the barrel. Perhaps a substandard ammunition was used, or the "forty-sixth" was fully exhausted. It can also be assumed that the incident occurred due to the low qualifications of the calculation. In any case, the artillery system after such a fiasco is only suitable for scrapping. I am glad that now she can no longer do harm. Terrorists have repeatedly used artillery and multiple launch rocket systems against civilian objects: residential buildings, medical and educational institutions, etc. ", - about it сообщает Russian information publication "Rossiyskaya Gazeta".

Experts believe that the reason for the rupture of the projectile in the bore of the Soviet gun was the banal lack of maintenance of the gun, and in a hot climate, the gun could be completely worn out.
