First CV90 reportedly captured by Russian forces (men from Buryatya).
The CV90 appears to have, indeed, been captured since it has now been seen at two locations different from where it got initially hit. Which suggest Russian forces have been able to recover it.
Though it was first thought it had been hit by an OT83 AT directional mine, it turns out it was, instead hit by a shoulder-mounted AT rocket launcher, at a distance of, roughly, 25 to 30m. (about 4 cv90 from firing position to target)
Damage were enough to penetrate the hull, dislodge the turret's armor, damage sight and gun's mantle.
The crew managed to bail out, but the commander was reportedly killed.
