   Vulcan, big assault rockets used by Hezbollah/Lebanese Islamic Resistance during operations in Syria in 2013 and 2014.

   Launchers were very simple tubes on tripod. Rockets were boosters from actual military grade rockets with new big metal compartment containing huge explosive payload welded to it

   Rockets were pretty heavy, like 100 kg and had max range of 500 meters, all in one nice rusty package. This weapon is usefull only in urban combat when most of fighting is done at short ranges.

   Vulcans according to footage had timed fuzes (or delayed one?), which allowed heavy rocket to punch through roof or walls of houses.

   ...and level those buildings thanks to payload being delivered into house, instead of detonating somewhere outside of internal volume, where explosives were more effective and damaging structure.

   At the National Museum of the History of Ukraine in World War II, a military vehicle of the UAZ-3303 brand (call sign - Bronezhaba aka "Armored frog") of the Luhansk border detachment of the State Border Guard Service named after Hero of Ukraine Yevhen Pikus was handed over.

   This is one of two cars that, in July 2014, employees of the Nikolaev diesel locomotive repair plant modernized their account, turning them into armored cars for border guards.

   One of first creations of Ukrainian JDB branch.
