Among the destroyed equipment: 8 T-72 tanks (estimated value of one is $3 million), one 152-mm 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled gun ($1.6 million), IFV ($0.6 million) and a howitzer ($0.3 million). In addition, five more T-72 tanks and one IFV which cost $1.85 million were damaged. That is, the total value of the destroyed and damaged equipment of the Russian army is $28.35 million.
“Effective Turkish Bayraktars in the skillful hands of our soldiers are a powerful weapon!” emphasized the General Staff of the Armed Forces.
It seems that the company Baykar Makina will receive new orders, because destroyed Russian equipment is the best advertisement!
