The first case of shooting down a Russian cruise missile of the German ZSU "Gepard" has been confirmed


Footage of the defeat of a Russian cruise missile by a German-made anti-aircraft self-propelled gun “Gepard” got into social networks. ZSU shot it down with the help of 35-mm airburst projectiles, which, a few meters from the target, create a cloud of damaging elements.



On the eve of the German magazine Spiegel wrote that Berlin next spring intends to transfer to Kyiv seven Gepard ZSU, previously prepared for disposal. At the moment, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) is engaged in the repair of anti-aircraft installations. It is also planned to supply Ukraine with 35-mm ammunition.

In total, in the first three quarters of 2022, Germany transferred weapons to Kyiv for a total of 775 million euros. Among the weapons systems shipped for the Armed Forces of Ukraine are the Gepard ZSU, Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled howitzers, Mars MLRS and IRIS-T air defense systems. Along with this, the Germans plan to send ambulances, about 100 thousand first aid kits, surface drones and sleeping bags to Ukraine.

Earlier, the official representative of the Russian diplomatic department, Maria Zakharova, warned Western countries against pumping weapons into the Kyiv regime, as this could lead NATO to a direct armed conflict with the Russian Federation.

    If this is true, then the question arises - what kind of cutting-edge, unparalleled cruise missile should it be, which is shot down by an anti-aircraft gun prepared for disposal!? Or I don't understand something.

      Smart crests launch their UAVs at night, and ours during the day, so that it would be easier to shoot down or you could see how beautifully they fly

      X-55, Caliber, these are ordinary cruise missiles with subsonic (!) Flight speeds, which, if circumstances are successful, the ancient (already disposed of) Shilka will be shot down. You don’t need to mix them with Daggers and even X-22, which of course are not available for this shooter. And don’t gag about “having no analogues”.

      Judging by the video, it was something low-speed like "Geranium"

      A cruise missile is the same aircraft, only without a pilot and flies "quickly-quickly" which is the difficulty in detecting it. And they shoot down with anti-aircraft guns because there are modern information and guidance systems. In the end, SON and POISOT were invented and implemented by the Germans at the end of the war.

    Putin. When you talk to Scholz, do not forget to thank your partner for the Cheetahs, for IRIS-T, for the Mars MLRS and for the fact that his fascist Bundestag recognized Russia as a country sponsoring terrorism.
    But most importantly, do not forget to remind that Russia is a reliable supplier of oil and gas, despite the explosions of gas pipelines and the introduction of a ceiling on oil prices.

      For a long time at the summits, he hugged those who are now supplying weapons to the Ukrainians. And when they kicked him out of there, he seemed to be worried for a long time. Used to.

    On the KR, the weight of the explosive is 300-450 kg. When it is detonated, an explosion occurs with great power, but here is a zilch! Fake!(((

      Some sort of drone. Maybe the Lancet.

    Another illustration to the topic of the supply of "useless" Western weapons to Ukraine...

    I wonder when we will hear about the destruction of a railway train with Western equipment by our Aerospace Forces? Well, or about the fact that the railway bridge (railway tracks) was destroyed, along which trains with foreign weapons go. And then some kind of madhouse turns out: the Ukrainians even see our airfield in Saratov, then they attack it, but we cannot see what is happening with our troops under their noses

    In this video, I liked most of all how the ukro-downs fire at the rocket from automatic weapons. In the absence of the Cheetah, the chances of shooting down a rocket from an AK are practically zero.

      I liked the way it's coming out the most

      Didn't see it in the video....
      But something was said in clear Russian.
      The Slavs are fighting against the Slavs, and the oligarchs drive oil and gas for their own good through dill. Now there is also an ammonia pipeline to Odessa, which is not on our territory.

        1) It was pronounced in obscene Russian, which is well known to both the Turks and even the Negroes of advanced years. Did not notice? - well then it is very bad.
        2) The Poles are also Slavs, and Russians are very "loved". The latter reciprocate the Poles. And the Serbs with the Croats (the Slavs, both of them) - they generally AbAzhajut each other.
        3) Oil and gas are driven by the damned ALEGARHI? - So that's how it's supposed to be. You will also be an ALEGARCH. But not in this life at all.
