< p>Ukrainian air defense specialists «excellent» mastered NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems, which on the night of January 1, 2023 deftly destroyed Iranian kamikaze drones. This was stated by the speaker of the Air Force, Colonel Yuri Ignat, on the air of the national telethon.
«We see that the sky was really under reliable protection. I would also like to note the help of partners. There should be such a signal sign for them, because NASAMS barely had time to reload our troops. How they beat them from artillery & # 187;, & # 8212; said Ignat.
He emphasized that, perhaps, no one has such experience in using this air defense system: during combat, reload the complex and destroy air targets.
«This suggests that we simply don't have enough of them… There are missiles, but we need more air defense systems. This is another signal to our partners — how deftly and effectively in such combat conditions can our specialists use foreign-made military equipment, who just a few weeks ago were trained & # 187;, & # 8212; noted Ignat.
