Armed Forces of Ukraine began to use modern British missiles


Video footage of the use of modern British MBDA Brimstone missiles by Ukraine appeared on social networks. The video shows how three rockets take off one after another from a civilian-looking car.


Until recently, it was not clear how rockets are launched. Now it has become clear that they can also be used from ground launchers, although the missiles themselves are aircraft. Thus, Ukraine became the first country where Brimstones are used on the ground as anti-tank weapons.


Brimstone in its early version is equipped with a single-channel guidance system and, when launched on the ground, is capable of operating at a distance of 10-12 km, while more modern missile modifications can hit a target at a distance of up to 20 km.

The Brimstone missile is a development of the American Hellfire and in the basic version is equipped with a forward guidance compartment with an active millimeter-wave radar homing head. One of the features of the Brimstone is the ability to fire in one gulp, after which the missiles independently search for and destroy targets.

    in general, it’s a crime to send infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers without KAZ Arena or Afghanit to the NWO, hundreds of pieces can be burned with such missiles

      No. This missile does not hit the projection of the target where the "Afghanit" was supposed to work, a horizontal projection. Here, my friend, the upper hemisphere is attacking.

        Buses or some other kind of transport traveling towards the front line is a very suspicious thing and should be dealt with accordingly.

    Everything that the Americans planned - everything was delivered without problems. And they'll bring more.
    This weapon will bring a lot of grief to Russian homes. The General Staff officer who allowed this must be judged! For betrayal! For treason!
    Any person who has looked at a map of Ukraine will show points vulnerable to the import of weapons. Any! But not the General Staff.
    They say (Mikheev S.A.) that the roads of Ukraine are not touched, because Russian oligarchs transport goods along them. That's it.

    Why are you surprised that, for 20-something years, they have not understood who and for what our government is working? Do you still believe in Putin? Did he do something good for Russia? And do not hope.

    Welcome to the twenty-first century. Here's a high-precision salvo for you instead of tons of Grad ammunition. Although if the Grad is loaded with smart missiles .... It would be super.

      So after all, we were all told that the Grads had undergone a deep modernization and now have new missiles and new guidance systems, or it was only said for a report to the high authorities, these new and deeply modernized models of equipment are needed not at arms exhibitions, not for export, and in the very first place in our Armed Forces, or the oligarchs from the military-industrial complex still have not understood this !!!

    Until the Russian Federation closes the western border and airspace of Ukraine - railway and automobile crossings, junction stations, bridges, airports, arms supplies will only increase quantitatively and qualitatively.

    Yes, this is almost a new reality - the result of delaying the NWO and it will not be better if you take into account kamikaze drones and so on.

    Now is the time to hand over to the people's militia of the LDNR no less modern, hypersonic and long-range missiles with a return "hello" for the "queen", for example, Elizabeth - "HMS Queen Elizabeth (R08)". This is an aircraft carrier, if anyone does not know.

    The question is, how did these "modern British missiles" safely reach the front line? Who allowed it?

    like you, they will still thank Putin for not burning all the ukro..yu and freeing them from the green serpent. Look on YouTube, where your bros thank you for the liberation of Mariupol.
