Planet Labs showed protective walls at the airfield in Akhtubinsk

Private Western companies continue to play the role of an instrument of the NATO intelligence community. For example, the American company Planet Labs, which owns about 90 miniature satellites orbiting our planet and monitoring the surface, has published regular images of one of the Russian military installations.

Planet Labs reported that it has discovered improvised walls that have recently appeared at the airfield of the 929th GLITs MO RF in Akhtubinsk, Astrakhan region of Russia and are intended for protection. The pictures are dated December 17 of this year and were posted for clarity with photographs of the area taken almost two weeks before.

Planet Labs showed protective walls at the airfield in Akhtubinsk

The 929th GLITS of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is the main institution of the Russian Aerospace Forces, which conducts tests of military aircraft and aircraft weapons. According to Western experts, the presence of the mentioned structures directly indicates the lack of hangars for aircraft.

The Russians have accumulated too many different aircraft and helicopters there. Therefore, they were forced to quickly create these walls in order to protect aircraft and personnel from the arrivals of kamikaze UAVs from Ukraine. Now the defeat of one aircraft will not entail damage to others, and the personnel have the opportunity to hide.

    And which is easier - to build a new plane or a shelter?

    Or was it just that the idea of ​​a possible arrival of a drone did not occur to the high authorities until the boom happened?
    Well, not a tall one in general doesn’t care, because "they think at the top ..."

    A good tool is balloons. I saw it in a movie about the war. Something between a balloon and an airship. Replace the wall in the air

    I always wondered why not take advantage of someone else's experience. It is not concrete caponiers and walls that need to be installed, but light canopies for a much larger number of aircraft. And let the enemy operators guess where the planes are. The old Soviet film was forgotten "Restless Economy" about a false airfield. And to ban taking pictures of airplanes in parking lots. The telegram "Sanya in Florida" published fresh pictures from Engels
