The following video shows Ukrainian troops using an automatic grenade launcher as a mortar system in support of a pinned down sister unit in the Battle for Donetsk Airport.
From the video we can see the units trying to coordinate the fires and adjust the rounds to hit on target. We also get a look into the ever-present bureaucracy that overshadows military actions.
This footage is part of a feature length documentary called “War for Peace” (2017) and is one of the best films you will see on the fight during the height of the war in eastern Ukraine (2014-2015). Follow the link to watch the whole documentary: https://youtu.be/0iqDvh1HrJA
