The first use of the German IRIS-T air defense system by Ukrainians was recorded

October 11, the first German short-range air defense systems IRIS-T появились in Ukraine. On October 19, the first use of these air defense systems by the Armed Forces of Ukraine was recorded.

According to Ukrainian information resources, mobile IRIS-Ts were used for the first time in the process of repelling another Russian air attack on Kyiv. As evidence, photographs are taken in one of the Kyiv courtyards, where a fallen booster block of an anti-aircraft guided missile of this air defense complex was found. Moreover, the results of the launch remained unclear.

High-ranking Ukrainian officials also managed to check in. On the eve of the good results of the work of IRIS-T, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky told fellow citizens, but he did not provide evidence of his words then. Today, Yuriy Ignat, the speaker of the command of the Air Forces of Ukraine, reported to the public, also unsubstantiated reporting on the positive results of the combat work of the air defense system, transmitted by Germany.

It should be added that Kyiv received at least two IRIS-T launchers. At the same time, earlier Ukrainian sources assumed that these air defense systems would be located in Kharkov or Nikolaev. However, the security of the capital turned out to be more important for the country's leadership.

It should be noted that the territory of Ukraine has turned into a testing ground for weapons testing in conditions of real hostilities. Thus, in the near future it will become known whether IRIS-T lives up to the praise that has been addressed to them over the past six months.

    So far, polygon 404 effectively advertises only "Iranian mopeds" behind which a line of buyers line up.

    Well, for now, we see that the fascist air defense (missile) well throws off the upper stage like a lizard, its tail in danger and no more. If these savages had shot down our rocket, they would have kissed this iris passionately and devoted a song and dumped a bunch of photos on the net.

    And the Turks were offered advertising for their Bayraktars, but the Turks turned out to be strong guys and got on the loot thanks to their fortress. Well, good. Bayraktar opened a new era of hostilities, which now everyone, even bandits, will take into service.

      Bayraktars in the Salo Reich did not show themselves very well, and if they were on the Russian side, then Russia would show them good advertising

    Biden sleeps on the go, is not adequate ... but what kind of NWO we have ..!!?? and who shows a lack of will, if not shameful cowardice that gave carte blanche to the West for lawlessness, incl. and for the supply of a mass of lethal weapons to Ukraine !!??? After all, we don’t really answer, we all complain that here they are, all sorts of .. and have already arrived at the dirty bomb .... !!! Kedmi at the evening at V. Solovyov said, and who is stopping you from destroying her and her creators .. who ... you yourself !!?? But they are fucking, they have a crazy, but the will and determination to crush us, and we are barely crawling stopping numerous dangers. They set up a testing ground for their weapons on the mountain of our soldiers who fell under them ... and how long will this last !!??? . Someone will answer for this ... or will we wake up again in another country, as in the 90s, ???? . 1.5 million sets of military uniforms evaporated ... and silence.!!!??? Let's see how Mishustin and his comrades unfold, maybe our, mostly brilliant gunsmiths, will issue something more effective than we have for the fascist Irises and American Naimars. Although I emphasize once again, if there is no will and determination to win this NWO, then no weapon will help. Moreover, the constant justification and unwillingness to fight for real is the forerunner of a catastrophe for Russia, and at least they talk a lot, but society is still preparing and preparing in all directions for a general people's war, if our liberal traitors in power do not surrender Russia with giblets for her complete destruction. !!!! Everything else will already be unimportant and this must not be allowed !!???
