Russia used TOS-2 Tosochka rocket launcher with thermobaric rockets for the first time during Kavkaz-2020 exercises held recently.
“The new systems destroyed the advancing columns of armored vehicles of the mock enemy. The fire of unguided rockets in the TBS-M3 thermobaric equipment, which have increased energy characteristics, caused significant damage to the advancing enemy. In addition, the combined flamethrower battalion of the Southern Military District, consisting of nine combat vehicles of the heavy flamethrower system TOS-1A Solntsepek, destroyed a motorized infantry battalion of the mock enemy. Unguided rockets in thermobaric and smoke-igniting equipment were used to destroy targets,” Russian Ministry of Defense said in a statement on September 25.
