Russian Lancets began hunting for the remaining Ukrainian S-300s

Videos of the combat use of Russian loitering ammunition "Lancet" have got into social networks. Footage taken both from the kamikazes themselves and from the Orlan-10 UAV shows the defeat of launchers of Ukrainian S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems.

Both footage is from the last week, suggesting a real hunt by the Lancets for the remaining Ukrainian long-range air defense systems.

The day before, Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the office of the Ukrainian president, expressed the opinion that Russian troops “found the key” to the Ukrainian air defense, forcing the Armed Forces of Ukraine to use the missile stock in the fight against Russian drones.

Earlier, in response to attacks on the center of the Ukrainian capital, the head of Zelensky’s office, Andriy Yermak, made a statement to Western “partners”, demanding more weapons and air defense systems from them.

However, the West continues to supply weapons to Kyiv, although not in the quantities required by the Ukrainian authorities. So, at the end of September, Volodymyr Zelensky thanked Washington for including the US-Norwegian NASAMS air defense systems in the next package of assistance to Ukraine. However, Zelensky complained that these systems are clearly not enough to protect the Ukrainian sky.

    It is hard to believe that the "lancets" with their small range and low accuracy are capable of this. Perhaps there were repetitions of frames from the "summer tests" of these drones.

      They have been used in Syria for a long time. Accurate hits were recorded. And this is a video from the NWO zone.

      .Recently, information began to appear on the network about the use of upgraded Lancet loitering ammunition with an increased flight duration by one hour and a more powerful warhead weighing more than five kilograms, which is at least two kilograms more than the basic version of the drone.

      The .ZALA Lancet can be used for both reconnaissance and strike missions, has a maximum range of 40-70 km depending on the subversion and a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of about 12 kg. In combat mode, it can be armed with both high-explosive fragmentation and cumulative warheads. It has optoelectronic guidance, as well as a television guidance unit, which allows you to control ammunition at the final stage of flight. The drone is equipped with intelligent, navigation and communication modules. A feature of the UAV is that its guidance modules are interchangeable and can change according to the task. The available range of sensors is quite wide: cameras in the infrared and visible range, pointing at a laser designator, assisting the target search sensor with a gas analyzer and a radiometer.

      Basic and larger version
      Power reserve: 40-60 minutes depending on submodification
      Flight range: 40-70 km depending on submodification
      Payload or warhead: 3-5 kg ​​depending on submodification
      Takeoff weight: 12 kg
      Cruising speed: 80-110 km / h
      Maximum speed in the "air mining" mode: 300 km / h

      .MOSCOW, February 18 - RIA Novosti. The Russian military used a deeply modernized version of the loitering munition (kamikaze drone) Lancet against terrorists in Syria, capable of carrying a larger warhead, a military-diplomatic source told RIA Novosti. was used several times by Russian military units against terrorist positions in Syria," the source said.

      Yes, otherwise there would be a torch. By the way, a video of a blow to a beech walks on the net, there, apparently, a blow was also struck on the layout. From the air it is difficult to distinguish the mock-up from the real one.

    hmm. Long-range air defense systems are placed almost on the front line. Either they are crazy or ours are stirring up something

    It is quite possible that there was no rocket explosion.

      Rocket fuel should have flared anyway.
