According to Semyon Pegov, Challenger 2 knocked out the crew of the 71st artillery regiment of the 42nd division of the 58th army. The gunners managed to knock down the tank’s track and thus immobilize it. And only after that she was finally destroyed by paratroopers using anti-tank systems.

The military correspondent noted that feat in war is a collective matter. And here aerial reconnaissance officers, gunners and airborne troops played their role.

Semyon Pegov also added that the enemy is trying to evacuate this Challenger 2.

“We called the guys from the front. They said that now, in real time, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to remove him from the battlefield,” the journalist said. -He is in a neutral zone, closer to the enemy. But we are attacking the infantry and the team trying to take him out.

Development of the Soviet D-20 towed howitzer began immediately after World War II. It was supposed to replace the 152 mm ML-20 howitzer gun of the 1937 model. Production of the weapon began in 1953. The maximum rate of fire of the D-20 is 5 to 6 rounds per minute. The target range is up to 17 kilometers, the maximum is 24 kilometers.
