Iranian Shahed-136 attacks on Odessa: command headquarters "South" hit


At 07:00 am on Sunday, September 24, the Russian Armed Forces attacked a military facility in Odessa with the help of Iranian Shahed-136 kamikaze UAVs, also known as M214 Geran-2. As a result, the building of the headquarters of the operational command "South" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was hit.


It should be noted that these drones fly at a very low altitude and are not seen by air defense systems. Therefore, they are trying to shoot them down with the help of the mass use of small arms, and the streets of the city are literally littered with bullets falling from the sky. Drones are extremely noisy, for which Odessa residents nicknamed them “flying mopeds”. Eyewitnesses recorded what was happening on video.




Odessa is again attacked by hostile kamikaze drones. Three times the enemy hit the administrative building in the city center. Rescue operations and firefighting are ongoing. One drone was shot down by air defense forces. No casualties

- says the communiqué OK "South".

The city authorities informed that in connection with the elimination of the consequences of the air raid, the movement of trolleybuses No. 3 and No. 8 was suspended, and trolleybuses No. 7, 9 and 10 run on shortened routes. The workers were busy cleaning up.

However, at 11:00 another drone attack on Odessa began. An air raid alert was issued and residents were urged to take shelter. It was clarified that a whole "swarm of martyrs" of eight units flew out from the Kherson region and the Crimea. Ukrainian aviation was sent to meet them. The results are still unknown, but in Odessa they have already given up on the air raid alert.

    from the Kherson region and the Crimea, a whole "swarm of martyrs" of eight units flew out. Ukrainian aviation was sent to meet them.

    Do not kick for an analogy, but such an "interception" is very similar to those carried out on their Hurricanes and Spitfires by the Royal Air Force of Great Britain against the V-1 (Vergeltungswaffe Eins)

    But at least those "logs" were, God forbid yes (fuselage length - 6,58 m)...
    And the Shahid-Geran, although relatively large, as for loitering ammunition, is still not a projectile / cruise missile.

    You could say "baby"...

    But many sources wrote that Geranium-2 is almost silent. It buzzes like a mower. On the one hand, this is good, civilians can run away from military facilities and equipment with a characteristic sound. In combat, it is rare for anyone to hear an approaching drone inside the vehicle and armored car in time. Judging by the power of the charge, it is intended for more or less large game, unlike Switchblade, Lancets and Cube-UAVs.

      Well, and by the nature of the destruction of the buildings where the arrivals were, it is clear that the warhead is solid, as for such a baby.

      Just what the doctor ordered yes good

      I like this flower yes

          explosives are different, there is coalite, and there is hexogen, their fuel cell is almost an order of magnitude different

    Shahed-136 on electric traction, he cannot howl so heart-rendingly. Geranium-2 clearly has an internal combustion engine.

      Shahed-136 on electric

      Where did you get it from?
      What "batteries" are capable of providing a UAV with such weight and size characteristics, and such an aerodynamic design, with a declared range of 2500 km?
      It is worth remembering the plot of the children's "Yeralash" about "super watches" and batteries for them yes
