Ukrainian military spoke about the battle against a BMD tank in 2014

At about midnight on July 4, 2014, the squad leader, Sergeant of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Dmitry Bazhura, was preparing his subordinates to repel an attack by the militias near Mount Karachun near Slavyansk. According to the Ukrainian military, his unit at that time was surrounded.


His story was published by the "Army Inform" edition, which is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. Of course, the veracity of these memories remains on the conscience of the former sergeant and Ukrainian journalists.

As Bazhura said, before the offensive, the militias fired at the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from mortars for about an hour. When the sounds of approaching enemy armored vehicles were heard, Dmitry, who at that time had the experience and skills of a gunner-operator, took a place near the BMD-2 sight. To see through the fire and smoke, he turned on the Luna headlight. Lighting helped to see a tank at a distance of 200 meters, followed by two infantry fighting vehicles, one BMD and one more tank.

The militia tank was the first to fire, but two of its shots missed the target. Here Sergeant Bazhura, according to a Ukrainian source, remembered the instructions of his instructor and tried to damage the caterpillar with fire tankto immobilize it. He succeeded.

The tank crew, whose attention was focused on the Ukrainian BMD firing at it, did not notice the grenade launcher, who hit the militia's combat vehicle with a shot. The tank caught fire, after which its ammunition soon exploded.

Further, with the support of fire from Mount Karachun, where the positions of the 95th airmobile brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were located, the Ukrainian fighters managed to knock out another BMP, and the second was blown up by a mine. The militias had to retreat.

After this battle, Dmitry Bazhura received the Order For Courage, III degree. Today he holds the rank of warrant officer and holds the position of a technician at the information and computing center at the Military Academy in Odessa.

In 2014, the defenders of Donbass, many of whom took hold of weapon, were opposed, including by the professional military, deftly handling equipment and weapons. However, in the nascent army of the DPR, one could also meet then experienced and knowledgeable fighters, some of whom passed the "hot spots".

Mount Karachun is the highest point in the vicinity of Slavyansk, from where Ukrainian troops fired at the city with heavy artillery in 2014.

        This is what I mean: a duel between the T-72 and the BMD-2 would have ended the same.

          Were there tanks in that column? At that time, the militia had BMD and "Nona", which they got hold of the 25th brigade. The workers of Kramatorsk have restored the IMR, but this is not a damn tank, although on the basis of the T - 55.

          Agree, colleague, a night march with the Moon without a filter is almost a day march laughing No, we also filmed sometimes, but not on the marches! Well, when driving tanks after night classes in the park, for example. And so - yes, you are right, without a filter is an easy target.

        I am embarrassed to ask - why in response the tank hit from a machine gun and not from a cannon? Although for BMDshki and 12,72 mm., From a distance of 300 meters, would be enough "for the eyes". You have to understand that they sat in the tank blindly - deaf))))

            What is the probability of hitting a finger between the tracks? Provided - that this is not a game "Tanks" and in response, 125-mm can fly in. However, if they "brush" from 12,72, then from a distance of 300 meters, an armor-piercing incendiary will penetrate BMD - 2 even in the forehead.

              I won't say anything. I did not participate in the database. By the way, in WOT you won't always hit the caterpillar!)))
              But according to the recollection of training in the school, the teacher once told us - "Shilka" is terrible for a tank!
              We are in confusion - what can the 23 mm T72 do ?! Where to pierce? !!
              It turns out that in a few seconds to make the tank "bald", "blind", "deaf".

                Theoretically, this is possible if the "shilka" can drive up to 1,5 kilometers, which is not so easy. But in this particular case, we have a statement that from 30 mm. cannons smashed the hodovka tank. Personally, I have no idea how? An additional factor - no matter how stoned or
                bukhim was not a banderohera, he could not help but understand that even an immobilized tank, at a distance of 300 m, is almost guaranteed to hit the heavenly hundred))) hence the conclusion - nonsense, moreover, stupid, without the slightest signs of plausibility.

                  This is all true. As well as the fact that the T70 cannot penetrate “Ferdinand.” But a case is described when he “twisted” a self-propelled gun and forced it to surrender.
                  I wasn’t there!
                  Well, maybe he blinded with headlights, but the tankers thought that the same tank was against them, maybe they got scared and backed away. The weapon in the tank could be unintentional. There are many options! I don't even insist that this fight was! I just read it in the original.
                  In my own way, I understand that shove almost suicide on a BMD against a tank.

                    The cannon may not work, but from 300 m. KPVT or "Utes" is certain death. For a "big man" this is not a distance. And BMD at such a distance is a mass grave. I repeat - it's a purely psychological moment - you don't know whether a cannon works in a tank or not, but you know 100% that if they hit even from a cannon, even from KPVT, then the chances are 0,

      It would only get worse. Smoke, fog, dust when using IR illumination give such a reflection (light screen) that you can't see anything from the word at all. Especially in the IR PNV on the BPK-2-42.

      In general, the battle between BMD-2 (1) and a tank is based on three possible scenarios:
      1. ATGM. And preferably - at the limit of range. For it is very fraught.
      2. Sit very quietly and not draw attention to yourself.
      3. Put on smokes and run away. Either on BMD, or from BMD.
      The forces are too unequal. 125mm OFS even if it bursts nearby - BMD will be very bad. And the crew - so completely ...

    The militia tank was the first to fire, but two of its shots missed the target. Here Sergeant Bazhura, according to a Ukrainian source, remembered the instructions of his instructor and tried to damage the tank's track with fire in order to immobilize it. He succeeded.
    the tank did not hit the BMD twice from 200 meters, but from the BMD they managed to get into the track, oh, these tales, oh, these storytellers

Personally, I have a "citizen" in the Donbass, does not cause anything but grief and condolences to the local population. And it certainly does not arouse pride in the APU, which has been shooting at civilians for 7 years .. This is an article, this is nonsense. She doesn't belong here.

      In general, for 7 years, the APU has been completely demonized by any news on the VO.
      So positive emotions cannot be achieved if only bad things are systematically communicated.
      I have a question, have you forgotten about the Corpus? Or are there only civilians shooting?
      By the way, the Corps also kill civilians on the controlled territory (they just won't write this on VO and won't let them through), including children / families / old people. They just advertise this much less than in the Russian Federation, and such news is not allowed in the Russian Federation. Bo censorship.
      The civilian was simply "unlucky" in an urbanized war zone, where war is among civilians.
      And in Ukraine they tried to export them. But from the other side, no one began to export and there is nowhere. As a result, there are more losses due to density.
      But both sides shot a lot of peaceful people.
      But in the Russian Federation they see only one side - the second, according to Russians, has never killed civilians and children.
      But it is not so
      Since 2014, more than 240 children have died in the Donbas, 56 have gone missing.
      Moreover, as of December 31, 2019, more than 190 thousand children became internally displaced persons.
      Only 20% of children received the status of victims of hostilities, who were forced to leave their homes from certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
      In Ukraine, 39 thousand children received the status of victims of armed conflicts
      It turns out that Ukraine "kills" children but at the same time sheltered more than 190 thousand children? Gave them UBD status
      The worst weapons for children are mines ...

    Yes, publish immediately the Ukrainian masterpiece, either from 2014, or from 2015, when their warrant officer told how he destroyed more than 20 of our tanks alone, or Turchinov's story about how he was at night, without light, under fire from a Russian drg from a distance of no more 100 meters he changed the wheel of his armored SUV. What to waste on trifles ...
    And excuse me, is it okay to publish such articles on VO? Punishers have been destroying children, civilians of Donbass for the sixth year, and you are not writing about this, but are you posting such "memories"?

    I don't want to get excited about the non-brothers' nonsense, but - in war, anything can happen! Related to those events (a little later in the LPR), it happened to see our 64 after it was ambushed from two BMP-2 Wermacht. Again, there is a cant of intelligence! The box was overtaken without cover through several greenery. And yes, schenevmerli from the trenches with 20-0 and 45-0 fired from guns from 300 m at a high rate of armor-piercing. To pierce, did not pierce, but the whole body kit, Zips, external tanks, part of the active armor, almost all of the triplex and night sight, remained there on the field! God knows how they missed the main glass 150x 150 mm! The cliff was cut in half. As a result, one beha went to Bandera, the second put the veil down and left. The disadvantage of 64 is very loud, like the BMD's exhaust, which is clearly distinguishable even after 5 km.

      even on the Russian VIK, one tank was lost and several infantry fighting vehicles.
      One NOA is a propaganda trick. You can't fight much with bare hands.
      And they fought a lot, and not with their bare hands, but with weapons.

    What can I say, I laughed, I wanted to twirl my finger at my temple, but since there were no spectators at all, I didn’t make unnecessary gestures ... I didn’t understand why this should be broadcast on VO, only if it’s in the humorous section, then maybe nothing is material.

        Everyone is discussing this so vividly! Only it is not at all difficult to verify that during the events with the defense of Slavyansk in 2014, which was led by Strelkov (Girkin), the militia did not have any tanks! There seemed to be 2 BMDs and one Nona from either 25 or 75 brigades of airmobile troops. At the same time, they were not captured, and the crews (from Dnepropetrovsk) went over to the side of the militia for ideological reasons. Even in Slavyansk there was an engineering machine, which NKMZ got hold of. And I don't remember anything about the tanks! Maybe the one who personally participated in these events can tell better. I was just following the situation from the news feeds!

    Tanka

    Not a hero name for a tank at all
    Wore the same 23rd side ...
    The mechanic called him lovingly "Tanka"
    And the tank had a double-digit personal score.

    And his crew are not aces of tank units,
    From local, hard workers, like thousands of us,
    For the elderly, for women, for children
    They fought with their teeth with the junta for their native Donbass.

    And people will not forget their courage, sometimes insane,
    Determination and hatred of the enemy
    And they will not forget the one under Khryaschevaty battle
    In the fourteenth fateful year.

    Jackal tribe feud that summer
    They hid armor behind the school and behind the huts,
    And "Tanka" seems to be from the Kulikov field by Peresvet
    On the track into battle, head to head, four to one.

    - “Hasan, road, right-20. I see the goal. "
    - “I accepted, Kostya. On the left there is a hut - there is another one. "
    - "Shell!"
    -"Fire!"
    And the sight did not disappoint!
    - “Answer! Diesel, back it up! "
    - "Understood everything, commander!"
    -"Fire!"
    - "Ready!"
    -"Fire!"
    The numerical alignment has changed!
    One is burning and the second is smoking.
    And "Tanka" is stung by a tank shell in the tower.
    The gunner dropped his head in the smoke ...

    And then one and the other shells!
    The fire is already inside and the roar is cutting ears.
    - "We woke up ... they are finishing off the bastards ..."
    - "Well, that's all ... I'm sorry, goodbye, Tanyusha ..."

    - “We're on fire! All out! Weapon with you!
    To the starboard side and into the forest belt! "
    - "Hey, Kostya, alive ?!"
    - "Yes, commander, alive."
    - “Well, with God! Dima, cover up, I'll carry Kostya! "

    Outside there are explosions, smoke and it is not clear
    Where is the front, where is the rear, where are ours, where are the enemies ...
    Take cover behind the armor ...
    Step to the forest ...
    A little bit more…
    But ... Explosion!
    And Dimka was cut off with a splinter
    Three meters from the life-saving armor.

    And these are beating from all the trunks in powerlessness, brutalized,
    Entering the usual rage from executions,
    And "Tanka" covers with a burnt body
    A crawling carriage a meter away.

    Kostya woke up: "What about" Tanka "?"
    - “Burning. And no b / c. We shot to the end. "
    - "And Diesel ?!"
    - “Dima is gone. There, next to "Tanka" and lies ... "
    Tears wash away the soot from the burnt face ...

    And these animals burned "Tanka" twice more times,
    Filmed the video raging like devils by the fire
    And they rejoiced at the death of the tank ...
    Not long ... Before winter ... Before the first boiler ...

    And now "Tanka" on that road
    For peace, for truth, for you and me
    Leads his last and eternal battle,
    And Dima Diesel's soul behind the levers ...

    Unfortunately, the story is similar to the truth. There is a site http://lostarmour.info/, which shows all the irrecoverable losses with the presence of photos, videos and the place of the event. So the site displays the losses of the militia on 05.07.2014/2/64 near Slavyansk. These are 2 T-2BVs, with one destroyed the hull, the second decommissioned and 04.07.2014 BMP-5 (one had the turret torn off). All from the Slavic Brigade. Mount Karachun is just near Slavyansk. And the dill names the date before midnight 05.07.2014/2016/96, i.e. on the night of the 227th. It is well known that on the night of XNUMX/XNUMX/XNUMX, the militia went to break through from Slavyansk. One group was almost completely destroyed. Even Strelkov said about this that mistakes were made and this group died. What to do: there is no war without losses. The site is currently the most objective in terms of losses, many analysts refer to it. According to this site, the losses of the militia in XNUMX in tanks amounted to XNUMX units, the APU - XNUMX. In reality, the APU lost more, there is simply no data (photo, video), and the militia is somewhat lower, because the tanks, which were later repaired, were irrecoverable losses. So, this is a story about a lost group.

    I decided to add more about that fight. Additional irrecoverable losses on 05.07.2014/XNUMX/XNUMX near Slavyansk amounted to
    - 1 BMD-2 (burned out)
    - 1 BMD-1 (decommissioned, possibly abandoned)
    - 2 BTR-D (decommissioned, possibly abandoned). There were no casualties in the APC.

    And this is a phrase for those who write that Strelkov had no tanks. https://colonelcassad.livejournal.com/4986605.html
    The first known case of combat use of tanks by the militia was noted on June 26, 2014. On this day, militia units, supported by 2 tanks, attacked and destroyed the checkpoint of the 95th airmobile brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Slavyansk. During the battle, two Ukrainian armored personnel carriers were destroyed. The Armed Forces of Ukraine tried to destroy the DPR tanks attacking them from anti-tank grenade launchers, but to no avail. The reactive armor withstood all hits. Unfortunately, the two vehicles available to the militia were not enough to prevent the encirclement of Slavyansk. In addition, after the main roads leading to the city were cut by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the vehicles began to experience a shortage of ammunition. Subsequently, both tanks were lost when Strelkov's detachment left Slavyansk.

      According to him, the successful breakout "from the closing ring" was facilitated by the "distraction attack on the stele "Slavyansk" our armored group. "" Most of this armored group died, "- admitted Strelkov.
