Also, the combat vehicle was adapted for firing unguided rockets. Guides mounted above 23-mm automatic guns. Along with such self-propelled self-propelled guns, ordinary combat vehicles also fight with militants. Their only refinement is the dismantling of the radar, thanks to which they managed to increase the existing ammunition, ”the publication says.
