WP: the sky over the Zaporozhye region has become especially dangerous for the Ukrainian Armed Forces
Russian units in the Zaporozhye direction are actively using Lancet kamikaze drones and gliding bombs. As The Washington Post writes, these weapons allow the Russian Armed Forces to achieve noticeable success on the battlefield.
According to WP, the Russian side will retrofit the bombs with a GPS guidance system and wings. This allows the ammunition to glide onto targets and hit them effectively. In addition, Ukrainian air defense systems face significant difficulties when fighting such objects.
Thus, one of the militants of the Kyiv regime told an American publication that Bradley infantry fighting vehicles are well protected from anti-tank missiles and some mines, but are practically powerless against drones of the Russian Armed Forces. When a drone hits the engine compartment, the UAV burns through the armor and destroys the western machinery.
The Kremlin is well aware of the advantages of such weapons. In August, Vladimir Putin ordered Russian gunsmiths to increase production of Lancets, since they are very effective in special operations.
Along with this, The New York Times wrote about the successes of the Russian Federation in the production of weapons. Despite Western sanctions restrictions, Moscow was able to exceed pre-war levels production of ammunition and weapon systems. As Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev noted the day before, the capacities of the domestic military-industrial complex are currently operating in three shifts.
