«Alarm signal»: An expert explained what the kamikaze drone attack on Bila Tserkva means

The attack of Iranian kamikaze drones on Bila Tserkva is a wake-up call for Ukraine's air defense. Air defense has learned to shoot down Russian missiles & # 171; Caliber & # 187;, but low-speed UAVs flying at night at low altitudes turned out to be an extremely difficult target. This was stated by a military expert, former press secretary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Vladislav Seleznev in a comment to TSN.ua.

«According to the performance characteristics of kamikaze drones — experts say that they should operate at a distance of 1000 to 2500 km. Despite the fact that there is a specific «motorcycle sound» engine and speed is low, up to 150 km/h, however, on the sly they are able to cover a fairly long distance and hit objects & # 187;, & # 8212; he stressed.

Seleznev noted that the use of Shahed-136 UAVs by the Russians indicates a shortage of missiles.

«Before that, 3,500 missiles hit targets throughout the entire depth of our country. Now the Russians are forced to use the drones they receive as part of military-technical cooperation with Iran, not from a good life. They have critically few of the missiles that they can use. For missile strikes at a short distance of 150-200 km, they have now begun to use missiles from the S-300 air defense system, reconfiguring the application algorithms from surface-to-air to surface-to-surface & # 8230; First of all, Nikolaev suffers from this, they flew in Kharkov, in other settlements closer to the front line. Accordingly, in order for the Russians to be able to hit objects at a greater distance, they began to use UAVs received from Iran & # 187;, & # 8212; he explained.

Seleznev added that a slow-moving, stealthy target moving at low altitudes is extremely difficult for Ukrainian air defense to hit.

«What else is difficult — if these UAVs flew during the day and were noticeable, it would be possible to use ZU-23-2 complexes, visually seeing the same target. And at night, without illumination, without appropriate equipment, these targets are extremely difficult to shoot down & # 187;, & # 8212; stressed the former press secretary of the General Staff.

The expert expressed the hope that Ukrainian specialists would solve this problem in the near future, since « already Kyiv».

«Combat work at a distance of more than 500 km — this is a wake-up call. We learned how to shoot down «Calibers», high-tech missiles, and with this, given that they can use them massively — this is an additional burden», — the expert explained.

Also, according to Seleznev, the difficulty lies in the fact that Ukraine does not know exactly how many of these UAVs Iran transferred to Russia.

  • At night On October 5, the Russians attacked Belaya Tserkov with Shahed-136 kamikaze drones. Six hits and explosions were recorded. As a result of an enemy strike, one person was injured. In addition, the infrastructure of the city was damaged.
