Ukrainian drone flew XNUMX kilometers and crashed in the Croatian capital


In the capital of Croatia, the city of Zagreb, on Thursday, March 10, an unmanned aerial vehicle launched from Ukrainian territory fell. The drone flew through Hungary and from there entered Croatian airspace, President Zoran Milanovic said. A funnel, the remains of an apparatus and two parachutes were found at the crash site.



According to Croatian media, the drone that fell may be a Ukrainian Tu-141 Strizh drone. According to sources, at the moment this operational-tactical reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle is only in service with the Ukrainian army.


According to The Drive journalists, the drone lost control, so it ended up in the Zagreb area, flying at least 560 km. American experts believe that the Ukrainian Armed Forces could use the aircraft as a bait for the air defense systems of the Russian troops, but something went wrong.

The Tu-141, developed by Soviet designers, made its first flight in 1974; The drone has a cruising speed of 1979 km/h and a range of 152 km. The practical ceiling of the UAV reaches 141 m. The length of the drone is 1000 m, the wingspan is 1000 m.

      Definitely! Three NATO countries flew by without comment! In the sense of the air defense of these countries, the Swift at a speed of 1000 km / h was simply ... not noticed!
      And the second. The Tu-141 flew 1200 (!) Km until it ran out of fuel, and not the radius of 560 km that is indicated in the title of the article ... This is about the performance characteristics of our equipment ... which, unlike the US ones, are underestimated , but not overestimated.
      But.

        Air defense at an unattainable height laughing After all, they were preparing, they wrote to Poland, American air defense stopped by, they probably brought something to other Eastern European colonies. Scouts hang in the air around the clock and are so thin ... In general, everyone sees everything.
        It’s hard to say how much the drone flew exactly because I didn’t delve into it, so I’ll refrain from commenting hi

    The "swift" fought off the flock while the anti-aircraft gunners were sleeping.
    Now again everything will be blamed on the Russian Federation, they say, this is Soviet-made ...
    The presence of parachutes suggests that he wanted to build a nest on the territory of the EEC, but something went wrong.

    The device is 40 years old.
    It's amazing that he managed such a decent distance at all.
    However, why did Banderlogs want to shoot him in the direction of "civilized Europe" ??
    Looks like a crooked provocation, however ..

    PS And this is where NATO air defense was ??? wassat

    an interesting film is Hollywood, as the film certainly sucks, but the events in the film are sooo close to the current topic, so close that it even somehow begs questions ..

    If hostilities are taking place on your border in a neighboring country, then border guards and air defense should work in an enhanced mode. And then a large drone flew through the territory of Hungary, Romania and fell in Croatia and was not intercepted by any system. It flew within their borders for more than an hour and nothing .Here you have NATO air defense.
