Russian military commander proposed a reliable way to protect against enemy drones

The day before, a number of Russian regions were attacked by five foreign-made unmanned aerial vehicles, and not one of them was destroyed by air defense systems. At the same time, according to the writer and military correspondent Vladislav Shurygin, the Russian Federation has the necessary capabilities to fight enemy UAVs.

The expert believes that due to the increase in the number of drones attacking the territory of Russia, it is necessary to improve the quality of monitoring. To deal with these threats, low-flying object detection balloons, which can be detected by long-range drones, can help.

In this regard, Shurygin recalled that the Ukrainian UJ-22 Airborne drone, the Israeli Aerostar, the Soviet-made Tu-141 Strizh and Tu-143 Reis drones, as well as the British Dovbush T10, have already flown into the Russian regions. All of these aircraft have a decent range. Thus, according to the analyst, the enemy is looking for vulnerabilities to deliver a sudden and painful blow.

To raise a radar station for early detection of low-flying targets on balloons - this will be an adequate response to a real threat that has arisen!

noted Vladislav Shurygin in his telegram channel.

Meanwhile, according to sources, the drone that fell on February 28 in the Kolomensky district, 100 meters from the Gazprom compressor station, was filled with explosives.

    The electronic warfare system dropped these drones, air defense does not work against them ...

      Don't laugh, this is war. In general, I am surprised with the Ukrainians, they don’t really climb. Each such arrival can turn into a tragedy.

    According to the drones that have appeared, different approaches are needed. So far, civilian mini quadrocopters are being used in large quantities, often flying at an altitude of 100-300 meters. For such, try to use shotguns with buckshot (12 gauge five automatic chargers). More widely apply the suppression of the control of portable electronic warfare equipment. To detect and destroy them, it is already necessary to appoint airmen on duty with optical and other means, because after the flight and detection of positions, artillery processing begins with adjustments from these drones , and then to each platoon. Conclusion: the use and fight against UAVs is becoming one of the main military tasks, and a significant increase in the quantity and quality of means of using and fighting enemy UAVs is the primary task of the Russian Defense Ministry and the Russian military-industrial complex ..

      Buckshot at 300 m from the 12th barrel ??? Alas, you - a maximum of 50 meters ...

    Well, are "air defense ideas" limited to balloons? You can also work with "tethered" multicopters - radars ... with "atmospheric satellites" on solar batteries ...! And finally (!), "atmospheric satellites" based on the "Petrel"!

      Replica. You distinguish between buckshot and shot, you have an idea about a canopy of gunpowder and shot at 100 m. Quadcopters are fragile plastic products and no lethal force is required, a hit is enough. We need special cartridges with an increased weight of gunpowder. It is not said that this is a panacea. but as one of the means, it is quite possible.

        Ukrainian experience? crowds of idiots in the center of the city, shooting at geraniums from a machine gun. one was even caught. and he flew into a residential building. sports mini drone for free sale plus a bomb from a household store and that's it... a terrorist attack anywhere, anytime. Belarusians have already demonstrated by putting one on a Russian plane. next time they might explode.

    There is a better way. Send a shepherd with his daughter to the front line as part of a separate detachment of deer and sheep.

    Radar balloons are old, they are already 75 years old. Balloons, AWACS airships are good, R&D will take at least 5 years, then production will take a couple of years and will appear in the troops in 10 years. All weapons in the troops, we need right now. There is only one way out, to buy in Iran, China, North Korea, India, Israel, wherever they sell.
