Armed Forces of Ukraine learn to deceive Russian "Lancets" with the help of mock-ups
In the zone of the special military operation, the fact of the destruction of the IRIS-T SLM air defense missile launcher by the Russian loitering ammunition "Lancet" was recorded. The corresponding video has been posted online.
The footage clearly shows how a Russian kamikaze drone attacks a launcher disguised in a forest belt. But contrary to expectations, after this there is no detonation of the rocket or fuel, as happens in such cases.
In addition, experts who have studied the recording pay attention to the rocking of the entire launcher from a small explosion. This, according to experts, may indicate its low weight.
Analyzing the arguments of experts, one can come to the conclusion that the Ukrainian military is not unsuccessfully learning to deceive the Russian "Lancets" with the help of mock-ups of the military equipment. A similar practice was already used by them at the initial stage of the SVO to mislead the artillery units of the Russian Federation. But later, for some reason, it was abandoned.
Apparently, the successful actions of the Russian "Lancets" forced the Ukrainian military command to return to the tactics of installing models of military equipment. Yes, it takes a certain amount of time, but it saves you from losses.
It is no secret that the Lancets have already destroyed so many military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that they have been called a real nightmare for the Ukrainian military. Until recently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine failed to find an antidote against this threat. But now Russian Lancet operators have something to think about.
