Aftermath of the Russian ambush on a Georgian sapper convoy of the 2nd Infantry Brigade in Shindisi on 11 August 2018. It was the single costliest incident for the Georgian army in the war. A total of 15 vehicles, Landrovers and Kraz trucks, were destroyed and 17 soldiers were killed. The Russian side initialy refused the local monks request to retrieve the bodies, but to their credit one of their commanders disobeyed and helped them to do so. Among the survivors were 5 wounded soldiers that managed to escape to the village and where treated and hidden from the Russians. The Russian side lost one tank ( though unclear if there or at Zemo Nikosi - another skirmish ) and a BMD-2. Posting this because there is some controversy surrounding this particular engagement as to how exactly it went down.

"There were two small columns of armor, one seperated and deployed to the front, the other around the back, off road. Those four vehicles on the road were using Georgian flags. When a Georgian convoy drove up this road they started to wave at the blockade apparently thinking those were friendlies. As soon as the convoy was in full sight however, the rear column shot into the last three Georgian vehicles destroying them, while the ones at the front opened fire at the first vehicles.

There is no mention of a deliberate ruse in Russian reports of this battle but it is evident that the Georgian convoy was not aware of enemy presense, or was tricked into believing it as most of the vehicles stand in a streight line. Some Georgian sources and even reports for example claim that the withdrawing sappers were given permission to pass as hostilities effectively ceased at that point. But as soon as the convoy reached a certain zone on the road, Russian forced started to destroy the unit from two sides while it was virtualy trapped.

That must have been some huge explosion to lift and throw that turret so high. mil-smile04
Yep, i really dont know what made Turret fly that high, most probably ammo went off, since really no type of weapon does that much effect on tank to throw its turret on several damn meters with that force
From physical point of view thats impossible, turret weight 18+ damn tones

Russian SOF i think.

Author of this documentary Alexsander Sladkov was with General Khrulev's vanguard unit. Filmed, probably, the most important hours of this war.

Wow. I wonder what the folks on Georgian side will have to say about this. Going back to the first Chechen War, he was great and OBJECTIVE war correspondent. Right now, I occasionally stumble on his reports from occupied parts of Donbas, and he just crudely makes stuff up for propaganda purposes. Not even trying too hard.
 
everyone is pushing propaganda(especially Sladkov as he is working for VGTRK (russian state media), interesting moment he said that since 2nd chechen war they free to film everything, also he has his own yt channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYSBpn430DYl-QtZV0_opqw ), question only is their interesting material or not. This docu is pure priceless among with general Khrulev interview to Shurygyn and book Tanks of August.

Well all russian tanks have that fault. Of course, you also sometimes see western tanks with blown off turrets but due to design the russian nearly always sit on their ammuntion and since the T-64 on the ammunition stored in their autoloader.

according to russian sources , bmd belongs to 234 air assault regiment , burned after Su-25 friendly fire , 11 august during deep raid on georgian mainland . No casualities reported
As much as i know it really was destroyed by Russian Su-25, but circumstances were different
I know that convoy that BMD was marching was cought in ambush, they called in CAS and ended up getting thier BMD blown up.
