    Another stellar grouping.

    I like the "destroyed the handgun" part. Does this mean that he somehow hit a pistol or submachine gun in a soldier's hands, rendering it inoperable? What are the odds of that?

    No-- that is an incorrect translation into English of

    "...ruchnoi pulemet protivnika..."

    Whta it actually says is that with HIS machine gun, he destroyed an "enemy LIGHT machinegun" and captured 9apparently) the two operators.
