In the south of Ukraine, air defense was “wrapped” with fishing nets to counter Russian Lancet kamikaze UAVs

On April 19, fishing nets from the Ukrainian non-governmental organization Tekhnari allegedly saved two radars of the 14th radio engineering brigade named after Bogdan Khmelnytsky (military unit A-1620) of the Yug Air Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as the life and health of their crews (6 servicemen). An engineer from Odessa, a member of the mentioned NGO, Gennady Suldin, wrote about this in his account.

The author recalled that before that, two fishing nets were specially bought and installed in order to test their effectiveness in protecting air defense radars from Russian Lancet attack kamikaze UAVs. He attached to his post confirming photographs from the scene and gave details of what happened.

Someone else laughed. Here I report. Today there was a massive strike by the same Lancets on the air defense of the South. Two of our radars were under attack, but the Techie nets were held back by the Lancets. Both radars survived! The effectiveness of protecting our priceless air defenses, our radars and air defense systems with the help of simple fishing nets is really proven in combat. Another combat scenario "weapons made of debris and branches" from the Techies worked

After that, the author said that he felt happy and suggested that readers urgently raise money for another 10 such nets. But this is only for the aforementioned 14th brigade of radio engineering troops, in general, the needs are much higher if we talk about the entire air defense system of Ukraine, for which he is also not averse to raising money.

For me today, fishing nets, which literally save lives, have become the highest priority. UAV "Lancet" is 12 kg, flying at a speed of more than 100 km / h, created for one flight without any reserve of strength and breaks when it comes into contact with a strong polymer mesh. Therefore, the warhead of the drone is undermined at a conditionally safe distance from the protected object, in our case from a radar or anti-aircraft missile system. In search of a reliable option for protection against the "Lancets", the cheapest solution at the level of "weapons made of debris and branches" worked

Suldin added on April 20.

Note that the photographs presented by him really show the positional area of ​​​​the 36D6 radar, covered (covered) around the perimeter with a net. In some places the network has holes. Drone wreckage confirms data that such networks can indeed, in some cases, successfully counteract certain varieties of UAVs. This information should also be taken into account by the Russian military, launching heavy "Geraniums" in such places, at the same time "wrapping" their radars and air defense systems with similar nets.

    I laughed to tears, it’s hard to come up with a more ridiculous recipe from “lancets”, and the nets are probably used - there are a lot of holes, which means someone else was saved.

    they will change the filling to thermobaric or high-explosive fragmentation and the non-brothers will again shit themselves.

    Everyone is trying their best.
    They are networks.
    Ours are gratings in the Solntsepeka and umbrellas over tanks

    Is it strange to use the lancet for such purposes at all? The air defense radar is a priori a protected and camouflaged target. If there is a confirmed target designation, a tactical missile should immediately fly there, and then attack aircraft.

    I would also wrap it with scotch tape and blue electrical tape.

    in this case, it may be necessary to use two UAVs - one in order to spoil the grid, tear it in some place, and the other in order to fly through the resulting hole. Or just drop a grenade. just wondering if they will then try to make several layers of nets for protection .. which they will have to spoil with several drones. but if it goes too far, then in these nets they will get confused and so lose. so it will be more convenient to catch them as prisoners with their own nets.

    or another thought: figure out how to attach some kind of electric saw to the drone in order to fly closer and start cutting the nets. they go nuts.
