Defense Express: A Russian missile with a nuclear warhead simulator has arrived in Ukraine


In the process of another massive strike against Ukraine, which took place On November 17, Russia deployed a kamikaze UAV and several varieties of cruise missiles. At the same time, in one of the KR, which flew to Kyiv, there was no warhead at all. This was reported by the Ukrainian portal Defense Express, citing its sources in military circles and experts.


The publication claims that the RF Armed Forces used the Kh-55 from their nuclear arsenal. This is the Soviet KR, which was created for a nuclear warhead. Later, the Russians developed the Kh-555, a seriously improved version of the Kh-55 with a non-nuclear warhead. Moreover, one Kh-55 equipped with a nuclear warhead simulator was launched in Kyiv.

In the aforementioned Kh-55, the nuclear warhead was replaced with an empty “blank” and, in this form, was directed towards the capital of Ukraine. Several assumptions have been made. According to the first, the most ridiculous, the Russians simply could not “screw” a conventional warhead to the Kh-55 and uselessly spent ammunition from the nuclear arsenal. In turn, this allegedly "confirms the data" that Russia has "critically low stocks of cruise missiles" since it decided to unpack the "nuclear stash".

The second assumption looks more logical - the Russians used the X-55 as a decoy so that other missiles could overcome the air defense system of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and hit the desired objects. The third option is a hint from Moscow to Kyiv, which they tried to push for negotiations.

The Air Force of Ukraine did not enter into a discussion on the above issues. Command spokesman Yuri Ignat said briefly - the task of the military is to shoot down a flying enemy target.

Everything that is further there, on the ground, is already identified by specialists who determine the type of rocket. Why and how do they do it? There are many versions. Maybe the supply of cruise missiles is really running out, or maybe they are launching them as decoys. There are various questions about this.

– he added, not becoming anything to confirm or deny.

    "False target" is nonsense.
    Any group of missiles can be shot down, so there is no point in launching a "blank" one.

    IMHO, someone needed to report on the "massive strike", so they launched everything.
    A report on a "massive strike" has been filed, bonuses and awards have been issued, but the fact that some of the missiles left lightly - who cares about these little things.

    Defense Express: A Russian missile with a nuclear warhead simulator has arrived in Ukraine

    Exposed fake!
    See - https://aftershock.news/?q=node/1179142
    Anyway, the author of the note should have known - the X-55 is easily brought to the non-nuclear X-555

    - X-555 - AS-15 KENT-C (2004) - a serial long-range cruise missile with a non-nuclear warhead and an improved guidance system. Structurally similar to the Kh-55SM missile.

    TakchA, less speculation from yourself - more truth!

        where is the fake news?

        1. The crackles had X-55s! Also there were broken and training.
        2. From which member of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to shoot an "empty" KR? You have already been explained that the X-55 is easily converted into a non-nuclear X-555. The X-55, which has served its nuclear life, is being transferred to a conventional one.
        3. Did you see the photo of the "accordion"? Such an "accordion" is the hottest part of the engine for another week and more snow will not fall. Fershtein?

    And, indeed, we help spread fakes ...
    What is Defense, what is Soshi from China, what is NI Peskova or 1945 - all are essentially yellow sites, with small cheers-articles, without their paper edition ..

    They forgot the fourth option, carelessness and irresponsibility in the system of the RF Armed Forces. They removed a batch from the warehouses and didn’t check everything completely. So one wormed its way with imitation. All other options are just excuses. That is why planes are falling and other things are missing because of such irresponsibility that has reigned under today's fireman ...

      I agree, this can happen too.
      Sloppiness, indifference, and stupid non-fulfillment of one's official duties are present.
      Sorry

    Nowhere and never do both sides lie so much as in war. In principle, one cannot trust Western publications.

    "Western publications" were right:
    - about NWO (remember how ours denied the existence of military plans?)
    - about the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the end of summer
    - about mobilization with us
    - about attempts to purchase UAVs in China (now it is obvious that there were attempts, they just bought them in Iran)

    And what was Konashenkov right about, 10 times destroyed by the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine?
    Or that the population of Ukraine sleeps and sees how to meet our army with flowers?

    So, as a result, there is more trust in the "west" than in the first channel. Even taking into account the fact that there are enough lies everywhere.

    Z. Y. : Considering all that we have learned about the REAL state and equipment of our army over the past 8 months, the launch of "blank" missiles for reporting (or because of sloppiness) does not look so unbelievable.
