Dmytro Lazutkin, head of the 47th Separate Mechanized Brigade's public relations service, shared in an interview with Radio NV on Jan. 26 how a Ukrainian Bradley crew destroyed a Russian T-90M Proryv tank.

"[The video] with the destroyed tank has probably been seen by the whole world, and [people wonder] how it was possible," Lazutkin said.

“I would say that a huge plus and advantage the Bradley as a vehicle is the audacity, the courage of our military because they dared to do it. They went out and did the job. And then came our FPV drones…”

The representative of the 47th Separate Mechanized Brigade said that the Bradley crew that destroyed the Russian T-90M Proryv was "quite young, not the most experienced Bradley crew."

"This may have worked out somehow because the guys felt some courage and did their job in such a way that the whole world learned about it," Lazutkin stated.

The American military industry should be pleased because the Bradley's reputation has grown.

Unlike in Zaporizhzhya Oblast, where fields were mined, now "there is much more room for manoeuvre, for example, for the M2 Bradley."

The 47th Brigade showed a Bradley crew "tearing the turret off" a Russian T-90 Proryv near Avdiivka.

The video depicted a"dagger fight" between a Bradley and a top-of-the-line Russian tank near Stepove, in the Avdiivka sector on Jan. 13. The Bradley crew used a 25-mm cannon to disable the tank's optics, the turret began to spin around, and the tank ultimately crashed into a tree. The T-90 was finished off by FPV drone operators.

The Bradley crew previously told news agency TSN that it was the first time they had come so close to an enemy tank. It was their second sortie together as the commander and gunner, Serhiy, had just returned from training in Germany in December. Oleksandr, a mechanic-driver, used to be a driver in a supply battalion, and Serhiy was an assault pilot in the Zaporizhzhya sector. He was sent to training after his health problems worsened.

Serhiy said that he and his partner came to the aid of another Bradley crew.
