Massive raid of Russian UAVs "Geran-2" on Ochakov: details

On September 2, Russian troops, using Geran-136 (Shahed-26) drones, launched a massive attack on the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Ochakiv, Mykolaiv region, hitting a large number of Ukrainian weapons systems and shells.

In particular, the 66th artillery division of the 406th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was hit by drones. The drones destroyed Giacint-B and D-20 guns, as well as Italian-made FH70 howitzers. In total, about ten howitzers were broken and about two thousand ammunition for them was eliminated. This action could seriously affect the combat capability of the Ukrainian artillery near Nikolaev and Kherson.

Along with this, the UAVs were hit by technical support units that arrived a month ago from a preparatory trip to the UK.

Russian Lancet-3 drones also took part in the attack, striking at the air defense command post, the headquarters of the guard company, as well as at the fuel storage facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In total, two dozen Geran-2 and Lancet-3 drones were involved in the massive raid, successfully complementing each other's actions.

Earlier, the Geran-2 UAV successfully attacked the headquarters of the operational command "South" of the Ukrainian armed forces, based in the port of Odessa.

    Previously, they squealed that Russia has nothing, only Iranian drones

    ... "Geranium-2" (Shahed-136) ...

    And now it turns out there are our drones

    Russian Lancet-3 drones also took part in the attack...

      Well, a couple of thousand ammunition may well complement the effect of drones.

    Dear authors, do you have 100% certainty that Geranium-2 is an Iranian drone? Did you get proof? Refer to them, otherwise you are just banal provocateurs.

    Massive raid of Russian UAVs "Geran-2" on Ochakov: details

    Forty Russian UAVs involved, maybe a lot against the background of their almost complete absence in the previous time, but I don’t think it’s worth calling it a massive raid ... now, if 400 UAVs began to strike at the Ukronazis at the same time ... then it could be would be considered a MASSIVE raid ... Moreover, this raid would be supported by "strategists" such as TU-22, TU-95, TU-160, who, with their conventional (non-nuclear) missiles, would gut the enemy rear areas, from which they are now shelling Russian territories of Kherson, Zaporozhye, Lugansk and Donetsk regions....then it would indeed be a MASSIVE SUPPRESSION of the enemy armed forces coming out. I think that the more Ukronazi enemy forces are suppressed by long-range fire methods, the faster the Ukronazis will get tired of fighting Russia ... I wonder why such thoughts do not come to our Russian HIGH command? Why is the use of strategic aviation not implemented to suppress enemy firepower, with which he fires at Russian territory?!

      Well, yes, it’s good to shoot 400 UAVs and hundreds with Tu22 air-to-ground bullets, but in 8 months the arsenals have been devastated (thousands of launches), and revenues from the wheels (From supplies) are in effect. The Iranians with the repainted Geranium-2 helped in time, because for a long time the Lancets were received individually (they were not mass-produced before the SVO), and the warheads of the Lancets are almost an order of magnitude smaller: 5kg versus 36kg of Geranium-2 explosives. Failures in the release of loitering ammunition have not yet been eliminated. The geranium is imported, and the Lancet is too weak.

      In one geranium there are 34 kg of explosives, in a lancet 3 kg. In a 152 mm projectile 4,5 kg. 720-750 kg of accurate hits on equipment, warehouses and manpower. If this is not a massive blow, then what?

    This is very good, but this is a low-yield ammunition. Why don't ours work with fabs of 250 and 500, where BB is 100 and 200 kg, respectively? Did it work well in Syria, does the status of the special operation bind? So fuck this status, the lives of the best Russian guys are more expensive! The bombing should be massive, and there should be no talk of indiscriminateness. The Yankees with their NATO do not care about such trifles.

      To reset the FAB, you need to fly over the positions, but how to fly when the enemy's air defense is working with might and main ?!

        NATO air defense is working, they don’t hide it anymore. There’s nothing left of the Ukrainian ones. And to strike at NATO air defense, start a world war. To do this, the country needs to be transferred to martial law.
