Half a ton of TNT in one salvo: "Serpent Gorynych" showed its power

8
Landing on an unprepared shore is always associated with a high risk. That is why the division engineers-sappers are the first to land, clearing the road from mines and land mines for the main forces. The self-propelled installation of mine clearance UR-77, or simply "Snake Gorynych" helps them with this.


Reactive installation throws out a special cord with demining charges at a distance of 500 meters. After detonation, a passage width up to 6 meters is obtained.

Similar systems of mine clearance are still not found in any army of NATO member countries. However, the UR-77 was actively supplied to the Warsaw Pact countries and other allied states. Today Zmey Gorynych is actively used in the Syrian conflict, and not always in its main purpose: often UR-77 is used as weapons on the destruction of terrorists entrenched in buildings.

      I mean the TNT equivalent, the plastid there is about 200 kilograms, although I do not remember exactly.

        A little more than 500 kg. And the charges there may be different. Assortment, so to speak.
