The trick didn’t work: how Russian air defense “caught” a pair of Ukrainian Su-25s

It is no secret that many information resources have sources of information, one way or another connected with the special operation carried out by Russia on the territory of Ukraine. Therefore, they often learn details from the combat zone earlier than others, moreover, from the direct participants in the events.

So, on the evening of June 9, blogger, journalist and political scientist German Kulikovsky published a story about the meeting of Su-25 attack aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force with Russian air defense fighters in his Telegram channel “Older Edda”. It turned out that on June 8, a pair of the above-mentioned Ukrainian aircraft worked against the positions of the Russian Armed Forces near the village of Dolgenkoe in the Kharkov region. The pilots acted cunningly and competently, carrying out an air raid and firing unguided aircraft missiles at the dug-in Russians.

Ukrainian channels trumpeted about this victory all evening and even showed a video of the launch. The victory was short-lived

- says the publication.

On June 9, at about 12:00, the same pair of Ukrainian planes decided to repeat again what they had done yesterday - to suddenly surface for a few seconds and launch NARs at the Russians from a nose-up. They entered from the southeast, from the side of Slavyansk, and, having released the NARs, they made a U-turn over the forest near the village of Dolgenkoye in order to leave this area. However, they were "caught" by Russian anti-aircraft gunners during the maneuver. This time the cunning of the pilots failed.

A well-placed ambush worked, and with the expenditure of 2 missiles, one of the attack aircraft was shot down, the pilot died with a 95 percent probability. There were planes somewhere at 70 meters in height, and after hitting the car fell very quickly. The moment the plane hit the ground and the subsequent explosion was recorded. Glory to air defense!

    suddenly emerge for a few seconds and release the NARs from the roll-up on the Russians

    Combat use with a GP - in a set - with a cabling - this is from poverty. / Plus or minus 100 meters in radius /
    For unguided ASPs, the greater the dive angle, the more accurate. Everything else is prank

      Next time this one will also fall, each enemy aircraft will have its own missile from the air defense system !!!

        Hooray! Ten missiles! Twenty! But nothing that the planes completed their task twice? Twice! And it is not known how much damage they caused. About this - keep quiet. And where was the vaunted, almighty air defense, if the attack aircraft was filled up from MANPADS?

    How can this even happen? We are constantly told that the airfields of Ukraine are all broken and the planes on them too. Where do these daily Su-25 and MiG-i take off and land from? Is this really an impossible task for our intelligence? After all, the plane is not a needle. And you can't hide it in the fields and forests. For satellites with radar sounding, tracking down any enemy equipment, especially an aircraft, is not a problem. Yes, and DLRO A-50 aircraft can see a "rook" for 100-150 km, even if it flies at 70-100 meters from the ground. The Americans, the Germans, the British track our planes, cruise missiles, ships, the movement of armored vehicles online and transmit this data to Bandera. Why can't we do this to our enemies? Well, okay, we don’t have modern shock and reconnaissance. UAVs missed with them, overslept. But satellites, that is, there are no AWACS. Why is our intelligence service so bad? The advancement to positions and the work of artillery, Nazi tanks are also always a surprise for us. Often we fight by touch and hit the areas at random, as in the Second World War. And it’s impossible to fight like that now, we don’t have so many human resources as at that time.

    One of the two planes was shot down. Salo to all the heroes for this! And if 20 or 30 planes arrived, then what? Well, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have aviation. But after all all the same arrive and hammer. How does air defense work on the battlefield if they let it through? Is AWACS in our infancy? One or two planes for the whole country? I do not understand! And if further actions turn out like this, NATO will arrive. There, for sure, a couple of zeros will have to be added to the number of aircraft, and then what? Will they also catch a plane in an ambush?

    one should not brag about such a victory, but make an analysis. Where are they flying from? How do kerosene and BP get there? Why are the runways intact? Why not shot down in the first attack? Why did the other one leave?
    Of course, firing a NAR from a "cabration" is a ridiculous undertaking, but this must also be stopped.

    some of the wise men got furious .. with the knowledge of knowledge ..!)) Well, yes, 2 planes .. maybe they stormed the line of trenches, and there what should be standing along the Shell ?! The standard armament of the platoon. A pair of air defense officers with Arrows on the shoulder rather. They shot down one, quite a success .. !! This is a whole plane, an attack aircraft, not a car on the road .. AWACS does not follow every helicopter and attack aircraft, it’s just not the right tasks .. So everything is fine .. And sooner or later everyone will run out of planes in Poland and Bulgaria and the Czech Republic, on which the Krajinsky flyers can fly .. But no one will give the F-16, and they don’t know how ..
