American military commander named the number of Bayraktars destroyed by the Russian Shell in Libya

In the spring-summer of 2020, Turkish media enthusiastically described the destruction of "dozens" of Pantsir-C1 air defense missile systems in Libya. However, the American military commander Jeff Jaworski found out the true state of affairs and named both the number of irretrievably lost air defense missile systems and the number of Turkish Bayraktar TB2 reconnaissance drones destroyed by a Russian-made air defense system.

According to a journalist from the United States, he conducted a thorough investigation, including using information from the Pentagon. As a result, he found that Ankara greatly exaggerated its successes and spoke extremely modestly, and even sparingly, about its losses. But an impartial journalist calculated that the Turks destroyed 9 units of these air defense missile systems, which were under the control of Arab operators.

In Libya, Pantsir-C1 personnel acted more efficiently than in Syria, they already knew the tactics of Bayraktar attacks

- the meticulous journalist drew attention.

According to him, 47 units of Bayraktar TB2 were shot down in Libya by "Shells", and now these UAVs no longer seem so invincible. The American also studied the financial side of the issue. 9 ZRPK cost $ 118 million, and 47 UAVs - $ 245 million.

We remind you that another civil war in Libya began in the spring of 2014. On the one side of the confrontation is the country's official parliament (sits in the east in Benghazi) and its Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, and on the other, the Libyan National Accord Government (sits in the west in Tripoli), consisting of Islamists and supported by the UN and Turkey ...

      The confrontation is financed by the United States, they spend 750 billion on military spending, they borrow 1 trillion from the world every year, that is, all the wars in the world are paid for by the countries themselves, only the United States is in profit, and they do not care what and how much it costs, Libya lives in debt one half owes the us the other half to russia

    Good gentlemen, who here express serious joy and even remembered me who had sinned, you have completely lost your last mind, they are getting a fake for you, and you are happy! There has never been a war correspondent from the United States named Jeff Jaworski, the author of this primitive fake could not even think of a name. Took the name of the supporting actor, Jeff Yaworski, who starred in a number of Hollywood films (Pearl Harbor 2001, etc.) and bungled such a fat journalist duck. I immediately cut through the chip, the links are in English. the original is not, "infa" only in the Russian segment began to spin, well, I went to a couple of professional American sites - not mentioned anywhere in the last 20 years, journalist, war correspondent Jeff Yaworski, you were stupidly deceived.

      Knowledgeable people write from the Internet. Syria.

      ... I knocked it down, of course. This is quite obvious from the description of the battle. The armor not only shot down almost all Bayraktars, but the missiles they launched also shot down almost everything.

      20 drones per shell - why?

      How else do you propose to overwhelm the Pantsir-C1?

      Suppose that Pantsir-S1M was used there, this is an export modification of the Pantsir-SM with AFAR. As far as I understand, it can fire at 8 targets at once - unfortunately, not 360 degrees at the same time, but it covers the sector of 120 degrees for sure. There are 12 rockets and cannons on the car.

      Bayraktar TB2 carries laser-guided UMTAS anti-tank missiles, or Roketsan MAM-C, MAM-L corrected high-precision gliding bombs, capable of striking stationary and moving objects at a distance of no more than 8 km.

      The Pantsir rocket provides destruction of targets with an EPR of 0,1-0,3 sq. meters at a distance of 20 km, and it is perfectly aimed even at small birds. That is, the Bayraktars, in order to launch their weapons, must go 12 km deeper into the Carapace's affected area.

      That is why Bayraktarov more than 12 - 12 missiles will demolish the first 12 UAVs almost guaranteed even before reaching the launch range, and only those for which there are not enough missiles have a chance to fire.

      The effective firing range of the 2A38M cannons is 4 km, but the reach against slow targets like large UAVs such as Bayraktar is greater. That is, even from the cannons, the Carapace can overwhelm Bayraktars from about the moment their weapons are launched or a little later, when they deploy, but they cannot be deployed, because the UMTAS requires a laser beam control.

      This is how the Israelis destroyed the Carapace - they waited until it used up all the missiles, and then hit the car in the process of reloading, when, for the safety of the calculation, the system was turned off.

      Otherwise, there is no way, brother. It is only clowns like the "expert" Murakhovsky who can think that Armor is bullshit, and Bayraktar is a miracle weapon. Bayraktar was a miracle weapon when it was opposed by systems like the Osa-AKM and Strela, that is, the systems of the 70s. But not the Shells, especially the new ones.

      By the way, according to the results of the defense of Khmeimim, Pantsir-C2 was launched into series, in which the target detection range was increased to 70 km,

        And where to go, then? The alternative is to launch planes, and they are not worth $ 7 million.

        You see - Carapace, in principle, knocks down even mortar mines in flight, and Grad missiles. That is, in order to counter it reliably and without risk, long-range missiles with good supersonic sound are needed, at least swing three.

        For example, AARGM (AGM-88E) with its Mach 2+ does not provide reliable defeat of the Carapace.

        Here you need X-31 with its M = 3.3

          As far as I remember, the Turks managed to knock out the functioning Armor exactly once, in Libya. But this was the Shell from the first series, which was made for the UAE.

          There were screams about the fact that the shells were destroyed either by 9 or 10 - but these are cars that were stupidly destroyed by artillery shelling or abandoned by the crews (the Americans took one such damaged car to the Ramstein airbase).

          But even these annihilations seem to be not quite confirmed.

          The Turks, for example, showed a murky video of the destruction of the shell - but after analysis it turned out that the video shows the Franco-German Roland, which is also mounted on MAN with an 8x8 wheel arrangement, like the shells from the order for the UAE.

        Khmeimim has never been attacked by Bayraktar TB2 drones, or any other modern effective weapons. Numerous photos showed only some funny handicrafts. One gets the impression that the attacks of the Russian base were of an exclusively demonstrative nature. Therefore, air defense actions in this case cannot serve as an example of the successful use of the Pantsir air defense missile system.
