During the rocket attack on Kyiv on November 17, one of the missiles of the Russian occupiers did not have a warhead. This was reported by Defense Express.
It is reported that instead of the warhead, the missile was equipped with a unit that simulated a nuclear warhead. Experts have found several explanations for this.
It is assumed that the occupiers simply complied with the order to launch another massive missile strike. In this regard, the X-55 missile with a nuclear warhead simulator was used. This may indicate that Russia's stockpile of cruise missiles has reached a critical point.
Another possible explanation for — the Russians deliberately used the X-55 with «empty» a simulated nuclear warhead to create the effect of overloading our air defense.
«This option shows even more clearly that the Russian missile stockpile is running out. Because even at the beginning of the war, the Russians used consumables — for example, Soviet Tu-243 drones. And not scarce missiles for the delivery of nuclear weapons», — the message says.
