The work of Ukrainian air defense is becoming less and less effective


The new round of the special operation caused damage not only to the electrical infrastructure of Ukraine, but also significantly reduced the effectiveness of the enemy’s air defense. Successes in the destruction of air defense systems are associated primarily with the change of command of the NMD. The Commander-in-Chief of the Aerospace Forces, General Sergei Surovikin, perfectly understands all aspects of the work of air defense systems. The Buk and S-300 systems that are on combat duty in Ukraine are well known to him, so the fight against air defense has become as effective as possible.


There is also a shortage of air defense missiles from the enemy. Massive attacks on October 10-12 significantly squandered the arsenals of ammunition for air defense. Moreover, for the most part, the air defense missiles fired missed the targets. The active work of anti-aircraft missile systems led to their detection and destruction with the help of drones. Footage of the successful hit of the Lancet on the Buk complex, we published earlier.

The supply of Western air defense systems in the short term will not be able to close the entire sky over Ukraine. In recent weeks, only one German IRIS-T system has taken up combat duty, protecting the limited airspace near Odessa and Nikolaev. The gaps in the air defense on the rest of the territory so far allow effective air strikes against enemy targets.

    We published footage of the successful hit of the Lancet on the Buk complex earlier.

    We discussed this material, with the defeat of "something" that vaguely resembled the Buk installation, but everything looked on the video as if the Lancet had hit the wrong car with 4 missiles with weighty warheads and solid propellant
    engines, but in a pile of garbage ...

    Here are a few quotes:

    It is rather strange that the hit of the "Lancet 3" (apparently we are talking about it) from a 3 kg warhead did not cause the missiles to detonate ...

    it looks like there was a setup with a dummy. The rockets were very glowing when the car itself was camouflaged, and there wasn’t a soul around, there should be at least a sentry guard .. The explosion was sufficient, and the rockets fell apart like plywood

    Even the foam was not painted with a polish.

    The dummy was broken. Hooray

    Yes, it looks like a fake. Otherwise, at least the rocket fuel burned, but this is not the case.

    How not to peck at the foam? Watch in the radio range, or in the thermal.
    And here they looked only in the optical range, it seems.

      I would like more such hits on such "heaps of garbage" until they run out.

        Well, yes ... Do you want, as at the very beginning of the NWO, to shoot a bunch of expensive missiles at mock-ups, report on "nulling air defense", and then be afraid to fly over the already "cleaned territory"? ...

        Oh, these masochists, lovers of "cutting circles" on the same rake ...

        Like this looks defeated real purpose , not mock-up.

    That's when our planes and helicopters will calmly fly over the entire territory of the enemy and will not let him raise his head and leave the bomb shelter, then it will be possible to talk about the ineffective work of the Nazi air defense. So far, unfortunately, this is not visible. We do not have complete air superiority.

    Unfortunately, the article resembles summer "daily reports" and has nothing to do with reality. Even if Soviet air defense stocks run out, NATO will always gladly and promptly provide its systems in any quantity ...

        but it would be necessary to fill it with positive transmissions. but in our country everything is decided in the Western way for now ... I think so far. may be corrected
