    Credit to Ukraine Weapons Tracker for the description:

    At the very least there are probably some Russians looking for clean underwear right now.

    Is that the air intake/exhaust vents right behind the turret where it landed?

    Hit the air intake and probably parts of the engine… That tank is not going anywhere on it’s on power soon.

    I don’t know much about tanks but I believe that was exactly the best spot to hit…?

    Imagine what the 40mm TB thermobaric version would do if it got inside that open hatch, ouch!

    It has better penetration than any 2A42 autocannon round.

    So one could swap BMP’s 30 mm to it.

    Did it have any effect at all?

    Other than an open mancover thats bang on THE perfect spot to hit for such a grenade (from the top). Right on the engine air intakes, very little hard armour, lots of grilles etc – it’d have completely screwed the tank’s powerplant up – 99.9% sure it’d be inoperable and possibly deserted &/or not feasible to repair.

    Terrific shot – these are the same yellow 40mm rounds they were using in a video a few days ago and despite me saying they were 40mm’sfolks argued with me till they were blue in the face they were RKG-3’s.

    Form the Wiki, T-80UK is somewhat new, form the 90s, this one compared to the 72s, 62s, etc, look like a juicy target;

    “Commander version equipped with Shtora-1 APS, thermal imaging night sight TO1-PO2T (detection range / target classification range = 6,400 / 4,600 meters at night), new atmospheric parameter sensor, R-163U and R-163K radio stations, TNA-4 navigation system, HE shell remote detonation system, AB-1-P28 autonomous power plant. Adopted by the army in the 1990s.”
