Russian drones destroyed four artillery reconnaissance radars "Zoo" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - Ministry of Defense

Russian troops continue to strike with precision weapons on the energy and military infrastructure of Ukraine, an air alert was declared in all Ukrainian regions. It is known that strikes were carried out on Kyiv and the region, missiles were seen over Kharkov and Zaporozhye, in the Vinnitsa region, and so on. According to a number of Russian Internet resources, ours gave Ukraine a fiery rain, launching cruise missiles, kamikaze drones "Geran-2", from Belarus they worked out "MiGs" with "Daggers". At least six fighter jets with missiles were reportedly circling over Minsk.


According to the Ministry of Defense, over the past day, all designated targets were hit, the objectives of the strikes were achieved. The blows were delivered on the energy facilities of Ukraine. Finally, the military began to report the use of loitering ammunition, though without specifying their type. A new Defense Ministry report says that four Zoopark artillery reconnaissance radars of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and an American AN / TPQ-36 counter-battery station were destroyed by Russian drone strikes. Most likely, Lancet drones were used, they work in the frontline zone. But this is only an assumption.

Now in the directions: on Kupyansky, an attempt of the offensive of the 92nd brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of ​​​​the settlement was thwarted. Berestovoe. Artillery destroyed up to 50 servicemen, 5 armored cars and three pickup trucks. Three M777 howitzers were destroyed in the Zagryzovo area, and the crossing over the Oskol was destroyed in the Dvurechnaya area. At Krasnolimansky, the enemy again tried to establish a crossing over the Stallion River and again to no avail. An assault detachment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was struck in the area of ​​the Torsk forestry.

In the Zaporizhia direction, in the area of ​​​​the settlement of Neskuchnoye, ours occupied the dominant heights, destroying more than 40 Ukrainian servicemen, one tank and three infantry fighting vehicles. In the Krivoy Rog direction, an attempt was made to attack by three battalions, including one tank, but our positions were held, defeating the advancing group. More than 250 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 11 tanks, 14 armored cars and two field artillery pieces were destroyed.

On the Andreevsky and Nikolaev directions, attempts to attack in the direction of the settlements of Sadok in the Kherson region, Zeleny Gay, Tamarino and Ternovye Pody in the Nikolaev region were repelled. Up to 45 Ukrainian servicemen, four armored combat vehicles and eight pickup trucks with heavy machine guns were destroyed. In just one day, more than 350 Ukrainian servicemen, 11 tanks, 18 armored combat vehicles, eight units of special vehicles and two field artillery pieces were destroyed in the Nikolaev-Krivoy Rog direction.

Air defense systems shot down 11 drones, intercepted eight HIMARS and Alder MLRS shells.

    Excellent results! But we are waiting for a meat grinder: dill in two places in a group of 40 and 000 ... it is clear that their armor is excised at the speed of their attempts to advance, but still, almost 60 shock, even if they are pawns, this is dangerous for our thin defense . Ours began to cover groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with only an attempt to speak in our direction and burn them, this pleases, our intelligence has become much better! Surovikin handsome!

      If such a concentration, as you said, then ours must ensure that the artillery warehouses are not destroyed, the loss of at least one in the offensive zone will be a disaster, since this is an artillery war and such a concentration of the enemy without artillery support will break through the defense. Like ours, we must also look for and destroy art warehouses, since this will disrupt the offensive and then time will already work for us. And given the advantage of the intelligence of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the population in the majority of the disloyal Russian Federation, the warehouses must be divided into parts so that everything is not destroyed at once.

      In the USSR, at the same time, two radar systems of the same purpose began to be developed at once - 1L219 Zoopark-1 (at the facilities of the Strela Research Institute) and 1L220 Zoopark-2 (at the facilities of Iskra NPK). Compared to the 1L219 Zoo-1 complex, the Ukrainian Zoo-2 complex has an increased range. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the developers found themselves in different countries, and independently continued to develop. Upon completion of the work, NPK Iskra presented the 1L220U Zoopark-2 system, where the letter U stands for Ukraine. This complex was adopted by the Ukrainian army in 2003.

    Russian drones destroyed four artillery reconnaissance radars "Zoo" APU - Ministry of Defense
    This is of course good .... WIKI:
    In late February - early March 2016, two stations 1L219M "Zoo-1" were deployed to Syria at the Khmeimim airfield to identify the facts of the use of artillery.
    Used during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. One self-propelled Radar 1L261 complex "Zoo-1M" ​​was captured by the Ukrainian side during the counteroffensive

        This is where I would argue. The size of the headlamp is somewhat different, and the weight of the car is 40 tons of the Ukrainian version (1L220U-KS in general 63 tons) versus 16 tons of the Russian version (1L219). Somehow it does not pull on the same purpose, they are completely different from the word. Purely visually, according to the photo, the Russian analogue of the Ukrainian version is 1L260 "Zoo-1M", and the same name slips in relation to 1L219M. In general, a real zoo in these zoos :)

        Everything that was produced piece by piece by Iskra until 2014 on a caterpillar track, everything went to us, well, or 1 piece to someone from the CIS. For themselves, if they released something on wheels, 1 piece was accurate, but mass production was not possible, if 1 piece per year, then this is already good for them. Small foreign, frequent guests at the Armed Forces of Ukraine and they were really amazed.
        Of our Zoo-2, I saw one in the parking lot in the rear base, according to some of our Zoo there was a video from their side with the arrival of a rocket through the antenna.
        How can you kill in one, two days, if not all, then most of their existing Zoos-3 (2), a very big question.

    Even if, to a certain extent, the information of the MO is too "optimistic", one way or another things went in the right direction. Albeit still on the defensive, but a different energy of events is felt. I hope that the energy of defense will soon be reborn into the energy of the offensive.

      To believe everything that is written in the Internet garbage dump is not to respect yourself. It was on the basis of this picture that all this crap flared up. Someone took a picture of a MiG landing near Minsk, and without any "daggers". Immediately, the number of aircraft was increased to 100/500 with "daggers" under the "belly" and they began to "launch" them in Kyiv.

      Some "bloggers" have already "seen" even Tu-95s with Kh-55 missiles over Ukraine.
