Ukraine received from Poland the S-125 air defense system based on the T-55 tank

In Ukraine, the Polish anti-aircraft missile system S-125 Newa SC was spotted. This air defense system is the modernization of the Soviet S-125 Neva-M air defense system. Its distinguishing feature is the launcher mounted on the chassis of the T-55 tank.

According to military experts, this air defense system is a very formidable weapon. It is fully equipped with electronic systems that allow you to receive data on the course of an air target. In addition, it has an increased target detection range.

Another feature of the C-125 Newa SC is the ability to work in difficult radar conditions.

Recently, Ukraine has repeatedly expressed concern about the impotence of its air defense systems in the face of Russian attacks. In all likelihood, the supply of the Polish air defense complex is intended to partially fill this gap. This means that Russian weapons should pay close attention to the destruction of Ukraine's air defense system.

Insufficient efforts in this area have been repeatedly pointed out by Russian military experts. For example, Ukrainian air defense systems continue to operate on the line of contact. Recently, they managed to shoot down a Ka-52 helicopter with the legendary crew on board from the Buk air defense system. Both pilots were killed.

The appearance of the Polish anti-aircraft missile system on the line of contact increases the risk for Russian pilots.

    In Ukraine, in 2003-2004, a large-scale reduction of the Armed Forces took place, at the same time, the missiles of the S-125 and S-200 complexes were being disposed of. Missiles have not been produced since Soviet times, they were not stored in greenhouse conditions, no upgrades were carried out ... What was lying around in Poland now is the time to give it to Ukraine for disposal and promote it as an "auction of unprecedented generosity." Well, everyone knows about the famous Polish generosity and disinterestedness!

    So-so handout. So far, Russia's balance is higher in the attacking segment.

    Do not get carried away with "uryapofigism"! In addition to the Polish modernized S-125 air defense systems, Ukraine has developed its own modernized S-125! A feature of the modernization is the replacement of "vacuum" equipment with "microchip" ... the introduction of a certain "special" radar (which the ykpops declared their "scientific and technical" pride) ... new missiles with a semi-active radar seeker and an active radar seeker ... ( By the way, this company also developed an active radar seeker for RVV R-27 missiles!) And ykpy "at the very least" learned how to restore solid-propellant missiles! They somehow manage to extract expired rocket fuel and install new solid propellant rocket motors!
