The Ukrainian military published a video of the destruction of the 2S7 "Pion" self-propelled guns

Artillery gun 2S7 "Peony" was destroyed by a strong explosion.

The corresponding video footage was released by the Ukrainian military. As it turned out, the explosion of the gun occurred due to insufficient maintenance, due to the constant use of this weapon. At the same time, by a lucky chance, the detonation of the nearby shells was also avoided, although the 2S7 Pion self-propelled guns themselves cannot be repaired and restored.

On the presented video frames taken by the Ukrainian military, you can see how, when a shot is fired, the projectile explodes right in the bore. The explosion turned out to be so powerful that fragments of the destroyed howitzer were found at a distance of several hundred meters, however, what is much more remarkable, the Ukrainian side managed to avoid casualties.

Taking into account the fact that there are not so many long-range artillery pieces in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the 2S7 Pion self-propelled artillery mount is capable of hitting targets at distances up to 47,5 kilometers, the current loss is very significant for the Ukrainian military.

It is noteworthy that the Ukrainian military initially tried to pass off this video as the destruction of a Russian weapon, but the uniform on the Ukrainian military made it possible to establish the true situation.
