"Bayraktars" began to fly over Donbass


At approximately 18:00 Moscow time (coinciding with Kiev) on April 9, 2021, a reconnaissance and strike drone Bayraktar TB2 ("Bayraktar TB2") of the Turkish Armed Forces of Ukraine was first seen in the sky over Kramatorsk, Donetsk region. This fixation indicates the beginning of flights of the above-mentioned drones over Donbass.


The information was confirmed by several sources observing movements in the airspace.



The Bayraktar took off from the Kulbakino airbase in Nikolaev, flew over the southern region of Ukraine adjacent to the Crimea, and headed for Donbass. There he carried out a reconnaissance flight along the contact line.

Note that the Bayraktar TB2 drones, operated by the Turkish military, have shown themselves well in the skies of Syria, Libya and Nagorno-Karabakh. Whether the Ukrainian military has such skills is not clear. but is knownthat the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been honing their skills for almost a year and this cannot be underestimated.

Since December 2020, the "Bayraktars" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been conducting regular reconnaissance flights near the border with Crimea. Now, apparently, given that the number of drones has increased, flights over Donbass, and possibly other border regions of Ukraine, will also become regular.

    There was an opportunity to test the means of electronic warfare and "put" him in the LPR.

      Why plant?
      It's easier to bomb the airfield in Nikolaev.

        In the event of a real aggravation, the base and control points of the Bayraktar will be destroyed first.

    If we had a program of piston attack aircraft, then having such machines, Donbas would have a chance to scare such tractors from their territory. but in pursuit of the 5th generation, we somehow do not look back at the fact that the Americans do not forget to continue working on such machines. And we have been discussing how to update the corn plant for 10 years already.

      Stormtroopers are actually designed for completely different purposes.
      In the USA, by the way, they know about it .. smile

      The U.S. Air Force wants a light strike aircraft again to combat irregular armed formations.

      What does "Bayraktary" have to do with it ?? negative

    Is there an opportunity for the LDNR to shoot down these UAVs if it flies into their territory? Or will they just watch him fly? I'm not a specialist and I'm interested in it.

      The LDNR has everything that Russia has))). Or do you believe that LDNR can actually contain 600 tanks, for example?
      If so, then all over the world can only envy the effectiveness of the "VPK" LDNR. Not to have anything, but to have everything the army could want.
      They have their own Khatabych ...

          Do not make me laugh. Someone is now paying attention to this. The main thing is that the essence has reached you.
          LDNR is Russia.
          You started punctuation here, but forgot much more serious rules - in a dispute you have to argue on a topic. and the transition to personalities is not the height of ethics.
          So weigh my "commas" or your dense bad manners.
          I hope at least something that I wrote reached you?))))
          But if not for you, then for someone else it will come.

              It remains to capture the entire Earth ... It is the whole of Russia.
              So probably all the conquerors thought. Is there land? there is . We'll capture ours.
              But now it's 21 and the rules are different now. We consider allies of Russia. Especially their quality.
              My opinion, we don't rock the boat ...

                  The first piccha is not about you, the second is just a movie. You are the descendants of the BOLSHEVIKS. The country that was before 1917 was RUSSIA. And now you are just RF.
                  Or your ancestors did not do everything to mix Russia with G?
                  And here, on you !! Portrait of the Emperor of Russia. It's like OURS. I did not see any more impudence.

                    How much expression from the "hot Estonian guy" Vladimir. winked

                    Have you looked at the calendar today?

                    On April 15, 1795, Russia became larger due to the Duchies of Courland and Semigalsk, as well as the Pilten District, which occupied the territory of modern southern Latvia.

                    smile

                    PS We remember how the Estonians shot, disarmed and plundered the retreating army of Yudenich.

                    “The unfortunate Russians, despite the winter cold, literally undressed, and everything was mercilessly taken away. Gold crosses were torn off the chest, wallets were taken away, rings were removed from the fingers. Before the eyes of the Russian detachments, the Estonians removed from the soldiers, shivering from the frost, new British uniforms, in exchange for which they were given rags, but even then not always. Warm American underwear was not spared either, and torn overcoats were thrown over the naked bodies of the unfortunate defeated. "

                    PS At least the Lithuanians had their own statehood.
                    Latvians and Estonians survived exclusively thanks to Russia.
                    For which she was "thanked".
