Defense Express: The Last Destroyed Shells in Libya Were Not from the UAE


In recent days, PNS forces supported by Turkey have inflicted significant losses on the LNA army led by Khalifa Haftar. The main role in the military successes of the Government of National Accord was played by the use of Turkish unmanned aerial systems Bayraktar TB2. It is reported by the Ukrainian edition of Defense Express.


Last Sunday, Turkish strike UAVs in Libya staged a real genocide of the highly advertised Russian anti-aircraft missile and cannon systems “Shell S-1”. Seven such air defense missile systems were recorded.

- reports Defense Express.

Ukrainian experts also note that all previously destroyed “Armor” production of the Russian Federation came to Libya through the United Arab Emirates and corresponded to the modification of “Shell S-1E”. Complexes supplied to the UAE have MAN-SX45 chassis made in Germany. The last attacked installations were based on the Russian KamAZ-6560 8x8 chassis. In this regard, Defense Express asks about the origin of the destroyed air defense missile systems.

Bayraktar TB2 drones successfully hit other targets. At the same time, thanks to the use of high-precision ammunition from the Roketsan MAM-L company and a modern guidance and control system, even fast-moving objects are destroyed.

      Yes, and this is a perfectly normal practice.

        Normal for whom? It is quite justified to transport caterpillar equipment on a trawl, there the resource is extremely limited, here they cherish the usual Kamaz. Isn't it easier then to buy a new chassis and rearrange everything? The advantage of a wheeled chassis is that it is less expensive, has a longer resource and is more mobile. Why don't they buy a trawl for transporting trawls?

          Normal for everyone. They save the resource of the engine and transmission so that they do not fail at the right time. The complex weighs 30 tons, try to drive it back and forth, and even in the African climate ... The trawl can be replaced, but if the "Pantsir" itself dies, it will immediately become an easy target.

            That is, in Russia abnormal?
            Conserving the resources of a conventional truck by transporting it on another truck does not look prudent. A weight of 30 tons is normal. KamAZ 55102 (dump truck). The mass of the model with equipment, kg - 27 130, carrying capacity, 14 tons. It never crossed anyone's mind to carry them on trawls, with the exception of the Bedouins, of course.
            On YouTube, I scored "shell" in the search, the first link, honestly, did not choose:



            In addition to the Bedouins, no one is engaged in such insanity.
            Try to repeat the experience, look. They drive everywhere, regardless of the climate.

            The trawl can be replaced, but if the "Shell" itself dies, it will immediately become an easy target.

            Don't you think that everything turned out exactly the opposite? He just became an easy target. But the trawl, judging by the photo, can be patched up and used further.

              Russia is a chassis manufacturer! There is no special need to save the resource of components and assemblies. But Libya is a different matter, besides, there are military operations. If the engine closes, there will be so much trouble with its replacement! These "Shells" are being driven there along the entire front, it is hundreds of kilometers.

                Arabs can't buy Kamaz chassis? What is the problem? Inexpensive and affordable. The chassis is not some kind of "wunderwaffle", an ordinary truck, although 4-axle, but this does not change the essence of the matter. Let them pick up with a margin, for sure it's cheaper than trucks with trawls.

                But Libya is a different matter, besides, there are military operations. If the engine closes, there will be so much trouble with its replacement! These "Shells" are being driven there along the entire front, it is hundreds of kilometers.

                As for hundreds of kilometers, for Kamaz this is the usual daily mileage. He was created for that.
                Here you are right, and it’s not specifically in Libya. To transport military equipment in a war zone without protection, like sack of potatoes, is simply the height of idiocy.

                  Can Arabs buy Kamaz chassis? What is the problem?

                  The problem is that there is a war in the country. This is not easy for you to load into a plane or a cargo ship and bring it. However, it hardly comes to you. Therefore, I see no reason for further discussion.

                    Oh yes, the war is on, but the Bedouins may not realize this, in any case, they behave like merchants bringing goods to the market. In the afternoon, in the desert, in the war zone, without any protection and camouflage.

                    However, it hardly comes to you.

                    In my opinion, this remark can be fully attributed to you. yes

                    Therefore, I see no reason for further discussion.

                    Here you are absolutely right. hi

    The photo shows a broken Shell on the same broken trawl. I just find it difficult to comment on something.

      ... In the photo, the broken "Shell" on the same broken trawl ...

      Yes, absolutely right. In the photo is the Shell, but in the video at 123 it is more interesting there. Where they say something, the “Shell” is shown, but on the night photos, starting from the end of the fifth minute, the shell is not “Shell”. This is a Franco-German air defense system Roland. Especially it can be well seen in the 6th minute, 8-9 seconds of the video. Then further on somewhere again the “Shell” flashes. Someone, for some reason, slept this video.)

    Actually, what is taken from the Ukrainian site in itself already causes skepticism.

    "Western friends" have a dream, not just by rolling, to fasten Russia to their adventure in Libya. Judge for yourself, without any participation of Russia, the United States and their puppets - France, Germany and other trifles like Italy - have destroyed the prosperous state of Libya. Just like everywhere, where the above states have put their grabbing hands, a civil war broke out on the territory of the former Libya. In order to give legitimacy to their actions, "blood from the nose" is necessary the intervention of "world evil", with which Russia is being actively portrayed. The State Department and its informational part does not bother at all that Haftar is a US citizen, a CIA officer, his family lives and flourishes in the United States. But in order to get to Libyan oil, you need to push your barbaric actions that do not comply with any laws on Russia. I would not be surprised if these "Armor" were bought and brought to Libya by the Americans. However, to use the publications of the Ukrainian media is to lose reputation. All decent journalists in Ukraine have either been killed or emigrated. The rest, as they say, "nepotrib", that is, venal, ready to write anything, whatever, just to pay.

    In fact, in the photo - a piece of camouflage net is visible. Those. this Carapace may have been caught while parking, in transit. Something else is ahead.

    The video also showed the park, just abandoned by the Arabs ....

    However. If you fight for a long time, then sooner or later they will learn. In Syria, they wrote, they already learned a little.
