The Ukrainian military successfully tested Oskol, the domestically made non-guided missiles. President Petro Poroshenko posted this on Facebook on Wednesday. During this round of field probes, Sukhoi Su-24 frontline bomber carried the ammunition and fired it.

This particular modification of the ammunition lets the missiles explode in the air several meters away from the target, which releases more pieces of shrapnel on it. The missiles are supposed to effectively hit the armored vehicles and firing positions of the enemy. Previously, the ammunition was tested on Mi-8 helicopters.
