This is from a guy I know running a team of former US Marines and Army working with the Ukrainian Marines near Odessa. They operate mostly independently using hit and runs tactics. The Ukrainians give them the best weapons because they do the best work. Yes, they all got back OK as they don't wait around for the enemy to react.

This version from Ukraine Weapons Tracker has the (supposed) result from drone footage added.

Foreign Volunteers (American, British, and possibly Canadian) targeted a Russian BTR-80 APC with a RGW-90 HH launcher, damaging it and causing ammo to cook off.

Note that a Czech RPG-75M appears to fail to function correctly.

Yes. The guy in the beard is an American former Army MRAP Turret Gunner in A'stan and now an LT in the Ukrainian Marines.

His dad is doing a fun raiser to get radios for the team. PM me if you are interested in donating. They need a SigInt guy that can jam cell phone traffic and listen in on phones and radios.

Knocking out Russian tanks has become "almost passe here," he said. "There are guys who will, with a handheld weapon like the Javelin or the NLAW (antitank weapon) or an RPG, knock out two or three T-72s in the course of the day and not even think of it as worth discussing. Things that would get you a silver star or a Navy Cross in the U.S."

"I have seen a lot of devastation and depravity of mankind," he said. He was in Bucha, outside Kyiv, where the bodies of hundreds of massacred civilians, including children, were found after Russian forces were driven from the city. "Bucha Bucha was something that really…left me numb for several days … family vehicles, every occupant killed, not just one or two, not just because soldiers were trigger happy but clearly targeted all along that road," he said. "It just left me with such a feeling of contempt and anger that I never felt for the Islamic State, [that] I never felt for al Qaeda."
