    Now the main thing is that North Korea and Una would not be blamed for this ... Otherwise, the “erupted” war will no longer be stopped.
    As a result of the explosion, seven people were injured, one of them died in the hospital,
    Yeah. Condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased. The rest - recovery, and may be considered that in "bulletproof shirts were born", not many are so lucky.

    I knew that Koreans can do a lot, but in order to cram self-propelled guns like that, this is already a bust. There is not much space there. And here are two inspectors for five crew members - exactly SURVEY

    Yes, because no figs interfere with the crew during the shooting ...

      during the exercises, an explosion occurred in a self-propelled howitzer

      It seems to me that the explosion occurred after the words "And what is this button?" wassat

      I’m not a tanker, but I suspect that if he had pulled out a full ammunition, would no one have survived there? Sergey, as a knowledgeable person - tell me.

        Pash, for example, we have the supply of shells from the ground. That’s all I can say about this case.

          This and I know, Glory. Koreans, I think, too. That's why only one person died, because the supply of shells was not from the combat station (which, apparently, was empty). But these are my idle conjectures of an amateur, but I would like to know the opinion of a specialist.

        Kit? There is an explosion of an offensive grenade, and this is equal in strength to the fuse of the OFS enough. The volume is small.

        Like in a joke:
        - The twentieth in the "penny" was me!
        - Don’t whistle - you weren’t with us!

        But how do you like 6 people in the cabin of the MTZ-80 of the old model in winter clothes?
        one in the middle switched and held the steering wheel. the one on the right pressed the gas, and the one on the left squeezed the clutch. one rode behind these three comrades, and two on the sides with fifth points in the windshield

      They were not necessarily all inside the SPG. If the charges ignite, those who are behind the stern outside the machine can also suffer injuries when the door is open.

          Most likely. There is simply no place for seven people inside.
          Most likely, module charges are loaded into the combat unit. Shooting was carried out from the ground by old capes. Apparently, at some stage, a fire occurred. In theory, the PPO worked, but the people managed to get burns.
          Certainly not an explosion, there would be corpses ...
          By the way, we had a period when only self-propelled guns were fired from self-propelled guns on live firing. With empty ammunition. It is because of the likelihood that the pulled extra. bunches plus a calculation that does not comply with safety requirements (first of all, a cigar in fingers) will give a total fire.
          South Koreans at this stage cannot afford to unload the transportable ammunition from vehicles for exercises

    Condolences to the dead. Any emergency is either a consequence of human disorder, or a marriage of weapons or ammunition.
    It happens that during exercises in peacetime, soldiers die.

      I’m afraid that Ukraine will never be able to make trunks of the same type as on a South Korean howitzer. Even mortars for them are a big problem.

        Well, if the projectile is fed automatically, and the half-charge is crammed with hands, and it’s just a silk bag and the second one, which is quickly loaded as a bunny after the shot, is a perfect automatic loader, I don’t even know what to say.
