Croatian press: The cause of the explosion in Zagreb could be the fall of a Ukrainian Air Force drone, control of which was previously lost

82

Information about a strange incident in the capital of Croatia is confirmed. The Ministry of the Interior of this Balkan republic says that an explosion was heard in the Jarun district of the city of Zagreb at night (after 11 pm local time the day before). Arriving at the scene, emergency services found a funnel with fragments of concrete structures (curbs).


Upon inspection of the scene, a parachute was allegedly found. It was sent for study to the laboratory of the Ministry of Defense of the country.

So far, there is no official information about whether we are talking about a parachute for landing people, about a parachute from an UAV, or is it a special parachute from the so-called descent munitions, including home-made ones.

The reports of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Croatia say that several cars were damaged on Jarunska Street. There are no victims or injured.

Croatian press: The cause of the explosion in Zagreb could be the fall of a Ukrainian Air Force drone, control of which was previously lost


The local publication T6, which specializes mainly in military topics, reports that we are talking about an unmanned aerial vehicle. This is indicated by metal fragments found at the site of the explosion. The material says that the drone could enter the airspace of Croatia from the airspace of Ukraine. It is reported that the object ended up in Croatia, flying over Hungary. It should be noted that from the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine to the borders of Croatia is less than 500 km.

Croatian observer Peter Vojinovic writes that it could be a Tu-141 reconnaissance drone, which is operated by the Ukrainian Air Force. Earlier, as the author writes, there was information that Ukrainian operators were losing contact with one of their reconnaissance UAVs. At the same time, the author expresses bewilderment about how such an aircraft could easily fly hundreds of kilometers in the airspace of NATO countries.

      In general, the Tu-141 was controlled by an autopilot according to the programmed program, although it is not known what the Ukrainians could modernize there. But most likely the electronic warfare is not in business here.

      What is more remarkable is that the flight through one and a half NATO countries went unnoticed!

            Well, yes. recourse Just wondering. Just the issue of overcoming air defense on this device was given special attention, because he had to overcome air defense 2 times. In particular, plastics, etc., were used in large quantities. In the task, it was possible to set any flight profile, both at high and at low altitudes, and taking into account the speed in the region of 1000 and taking into account the air defense of the countries in which he visited, I do not see any particular difficulties. The issue of electronic warfare, which I put at the forefront, meant not only interception via a control channel or satellite positioning system, but also on the tasks of disabling the electronic systems of the device. Somewhere there was information about such an impact on equipment by electronic warfare units, including fuses for unguided weapons. For example, the EW Machine 1L262 "Mercury-BM"

    Yesterday, Croatian Prime Minister A. Plenkovic called for all kinds of support for Ukraine's accession to the EU, but today he "changed his shoes" and said "you can't join the EU overnight." Probably due to the fact that Ukraine "launched" the Soviet TU-141 "Strizh" UAV in Zagreb, which "landed successfully" in the capital of Croatia, forming a decent funnel. Yes, Soviet military equipment has an excellent margin of safety.

    This is called "Ukraine was accepted into the EU." True, the landing was hard, and so it can be considered successful.

    The UAV was not decommunized before launch, so it flew to where it was designed to fly. laughing
    But seriously. That is most likely an incorrectly entered flight task. Confuse west with east. And this means that there are no competent specialists left.

    Quote: Orso
    Yesterday, Croatian Prime Minister A. Plenkovic called for all kinds of support for Ukraine's accession to the EU, but today he "changed his shoes" and said "you can't join the EU overnight." Probably due to the fact that Ukraine "launched" the Soviet TU-141 "Strizh" UAV in Zagreb, which "landed successfully" in the capital of Croatia, forming a decent funnel. Yes, Soviet military equipment has an excellent margin of safety.

    What are you speaking about? The USSR only produced galoshes .... sad

    Refugees from Ukraine have now fled all over Europe, and in Ukraine they were handing out weapons and ammunition to everyone, so it is likely that Ukrainian weapons and ammunition will soon surface in European countries if Europeans do not search refugees when crossing the border.
