British intelligence detects Kinzhal missiles at Belarusian airfield


Right after emergence In mid-October, in the skies over Minsk of Russian MiG-31 fighters, some experts predicted that hypersonic Kinzhal missiles could also materialize in Belarus. On November 1, British military intelligence (Defence Intelligence) informed the public that some time ago it allegedly revealed the mentioned aircraft weapons at one of the Belarusian airfields.


It should be noted that DI is one of the key members of the British intelligence community. But this is not an independent structure (department), unlike MI5, MI6 and the Government Communications Center, but is part of the UK Ministry of Defense as a division.

According to the communiqué, two MiG-17 fighters were recorded on a satellite image dated October 31 at the operating Machulishchi airfield near Minsk. At the same time, a large container was seen in a protective earth embankment next to them. After that, it was assumed that it contains a hypersonic missile 9-A-7660 "Dagger" (X-47M2 "Dagger"), and the aircraft are its carriers in the MiG-31K (MiG-31I) variant.

It is likely that the container is associated with the AS-24 KILLJOY air-launched hypersonic missile (NATO code for the Kinzhal missile - ed.), a large-sized munition for which the MiG-31K variant is adapted

- says the communique.

DI clarified that, given the range of such a missile of 2000 km, the deployment of "Daggers" in Belarus gives Russia a slight advantage in terms of hitting additional targets on the territory of Ukraine during the NWO.

    Well that they are there, and poorly (of course, if the "leak" is not deliberate), that it was not possible to hide the fact of their presence in Belarus ...

    But in general what ...

    Dagger good for the one who has it, and bad for the one who does not have it, at the right time.

      I don’t understand at all what .... all the bases of the VKS, fleet, etc. stand in the open?
      Only the section of the runway where liftoff occurs should be open.
      Everything else should be hidden from view, up to the point that the submarine should also dive / ascent on a channel hidden from view, no matter how many boats are at the base visually from satellites, or fix the fact of arrival / departure.

      sticking posts and pulling metal-plastic flooring over them - that’s not God knows what kind of expense against the background of the cost of 1 apl or the same dagger.
      and w / w construction - not prohibitive.

        Then you need to make a canopy with protection from geosondes and lidars - these beasts see the hidden well - why spend money on protection from the inevitable? The only thing: intelligence will become more expensive.

          best seen in the optical range.
          lidars will only scan the roof.
          and it's still a pleasure to scan every day.

          much more expensive than posts and sheets of tin.

    Podlyaks, as they found out about this, immediately asked the owner for diapers of increased capacity.
