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.

    The problem is with reconnaissance operators that they do not identify layouts and indicate as targets for defeats (lancets). This is not the first time that exposed mock-ups are amazed at the presented videos. The question is, where are our "Serdyukov" inflatable tanks and other models. The problem is in the lower command level of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which very often shows lack of initiative, lack of professionalism and military illiteracy in disguise, various traps and other military art, these are also the consequences of "Serdyukov's" reforms, which take decades and a lot of blood to correct ....
