Target of massive missile strike achieved, all targets hit - Defense Ministry

The Russian Ministry of Defense has confirmed a massive missile attack on Ukraine's military command and control system and related energy facilities. As stated in the military department, the goals of the strike were achieved, all objects were hit.

On November 15, the Russian Armed Forces delivered a massive strike with air and sea-based cruise missiles at military and energy facilities in Ukraine. The strikes were delivered in several waves, in the last one the missiles were joined by drones-kamikaze. Despite the statements of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that the air defense of Ukraine shot down almost everything that Russia sent, all the designated objects were hit.



The military department stressed that yesterday, i.e. On November 15, there were no rocket attacks on Kyiv, and all the damage caused was the result of the fall and self-destruction of Ukrainian anti-aircraft missiles, which yesterday tried to shoot down Russian ones. The Armed Forces of Ukraine deploy anti-aircraft systems among residential areas, after which the missiles hit houses. The Ministry of Defense also noted that missile strikes were carried out on objects located no closer than 35 km from the Polish border. So all questions about the missile that fell in Poland from the Ukrainian S-300 air defense system must be sent directly to Zelensky in Kyiv.

In addition to the destruction of objects in the depths of the territory of Ukraine, strikes continue in the near zone. Over the past day, an AN / TPQ-50 counter-battery station, an ammunition depot, two M777 artillery systems, an Akatsiya self-propelled gun and a Grad MLRS were destroyed. At least half of these objects can be credited to the Lancet drones. Also, one Mi-8 helicopter of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was shot down, the pilots of the operational-tactical aviation.

Now directly to the battles in the main directions: on Kupyanskoye, our aircraft disrupted the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the direction of Berestovoe, Kolesnikovka and Novoselovskoye. More than 80 vushniks destroyed, six tanks, eight armored combat vehicles, two armored vehicles and three self-propelled guns. On Krasno-Limansky, two attempts to attack in the direction of Kolomyychikha were repulsed. Losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: more than 100 servicemen killed and wounded, two tanks and four armored fighting vehicles.

In the Donetsk direction, the Armed Forces of Ukraine tried to stop the advance of Russian troops, counterattacking in the areas of Kurdyumovka, Avdeevka, Staromikhaylovka and Georgievka, but to no avail. It is reported about the destruction of more than 160 military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, three tanks, five armored fighting vehicles, a pickup truck and two vehicles with ammunition.

In the South-Donetsk direction, the enemy made an attempt to attack in the direction of Stepnoye, but ran into an artillery and air strike, after which he retreated with losses. More than 65 military personnel and mercenaries, two infantry fighting vehicles, five armored vehicles and three vehicles were destroyed.

      Yes, the Lancet videos are coming out more and more. For some reason, the news did not show footage of the defeat of the command post from the S-300 and the hangar with Osa.

            Caliber and X1-1 or X555 do not fly in a straight line, they could well fly at some point towards Kyiv, then change the trajectory, and there the air defense immediately tightened up

        And what is wrong ? A rocket flew past Kyiv on its own business, did not touch anyone. She, perhaps, needed some kind of selmag in the village. Or a warehouse outside the city. Or even to the godfather in Zhytomyr. And then bam - someone wanted to shoot at it over Kyiv.

      Maybe I'm wrong, of course, but those S-300 systems that Ukraine has are not designed to work against Caliber and Geraniums. In 19, new S-300V4 systems were tested in the Russian Federation, which are already capable of fighting against, among other things, cruise and operational-tactical missiles.

      Excerpt from an article about missile defense and air defense

      Although the S-300 systems are capable of shooting down cruise missiles, their direct task is to protect the territory from enemy aircraft and helicopters. With the defeat of modern cruise missiles, they cope less effectively. this is due to the fact that missiles use various techniques that increase their invisibility to radar systems. For example, they can fly at very low altitudes. Sometimes they fly along the riverbed, as a result of which they generally disappear from the radar. Another common technique is to launch missiles along one trajectory up to a certain point. On radar, they are initially visible as one target, but then they fly apart, and air defense systems do not have time to react.

      Therefore, if the S-300 complexes serve as the basis of air defense, its effectiveness against modern missiles is relatively low.

        Near Orel, a drone hit an oil depot. It really hit some kind of reservoir, in which there were no serious amounts of fuel nearby. But someone will report that he has annoyed the "cursed Muscovites" and even demands a penny for his work.
        Z.Y. By the way! Maybe it's some kind of deal? Looks like they hit something and damaged something. But in fact, there is no particular damage ... Up to the point that everything went "under the hood of Muller" (C) (FSB?)

        ... expensive precision-guided munitions have been used up, power supply in the vast majority of Ukraine has been restored by yesterday evening.

        The capacity of the energy system of Ukraine is approximately 3000 MW. Assume that 2 MW transformers are affected. There are about 6000 such transformers in Ukraine, 2 step-down and 2 step-up. It is assumed that the second is a backup line. To defeat them, it is necessary to use 12-000 ammunition, taking into account the fact that part will be shot down. When such an amount is used, then there will be an effect. The fact that after the launch of 18 missiles in Kyiv, electricity was cut off for 000 hours, speaks of a fairly optimal choice of targets for a strike. But first of all, it is necessary to hit transformers at 90 nuclear power plants controlled by Ukrainians - they provide about 4% of electricity generation for this country. Strikes on HPP transformers are effective. Hydropower is free and provides peak power. In the event of the destruction of transformers at HPPs, the cost of maintaining it does not decrease, water still needs to be dumped, since a large rise in water cannot be allowed and hydroelectric units are designed for a limited range of water drop.

          The capacity of the energy system of Ukraine is approximately 3000 MW

          The capacity of one and only ZNPP is 6000 MW. Doesn't surprise you?
          In fact, the total generating capacity in Ukraine before the hostilities is 51000 MW. Consumption - about 10000 MW. That is, the reserve in terms of generating capacities is several times.
          Further. This is consumption without any restrictions. If wartime restrictions are introduced, then the supply of generating capacities (and networks for them) will be 10 times. Therefore, it is very difficult to completely bring down the power system, this requires carpet bombing from bombers, not missiles.

          To defeat them, you need to use 12-000 ammunition

          Do you think there are 18000 modern high-precision missiles in the warehouse? The Americans don't have them either.
          water still needs to be thrown away

          what the spillway part serves for - the gates are opened, it drains by gravity, minimum costs (and there is no need - it can accumulate in the reservoir for a long time). Here the atomic one to contain the idle is a problem. Only Russia contains it, not Ukraine.
          Nuclear power plants - they provide about 60% of electricity generation

          Nuclear power was used because electricity is cheaper. But during the war, the question of price came second.

            I figured out the calculation of electricity consumption last year. 51 MW with optimal load distribution. In reality, there are transmission bottlenecks and it is constantly problematic to remove 000 MW from Ukrainian power plants. In addition, electricity is needed during working hours during the so-called peak hours. You just need to strike at large energy facilities without exchanging for small ones. If nuclear power plants and hydroelectric power plants are shut down, Ukraine will need 51-000 times more fuel to generate electricity, which will load its railways. To neutralize TPPs, it is easier to stop the supply of gas and oil to Europe than to spend calibers for these purposes. At the same time, this sharply increases the cost of arms production in Europe. For starters, I would ban the supply of nuclear fuel to Europe, starting with Bulgaria.

              51 MW with optimal load distribution.

              51 MW is generating capacity. No one turns them on at the same time. But this is a reserve of power.
              In addition, electricity is needed during working hours during the so-called peak hours.

              To do this, there are semi-peak and peak power units, first of all, hydroelectric power plants, but not only.
              load her railroads
              not much in total. Railways are designed for Soviet-era cargo transportation, but now they are still lower than they were.
              For starters, I would ban the supply of nuclear fuel to Europe

              The Americans will replace, as they did in Ukraine. To refuse to sell anything to Europe is to merge the most profitable sales market for competitors.

          "When throwing pebbles into the water, do not forget to observe the circles formed by them on the water, otherwise throwing pebbles becomes empty fun" (Kozma Prutkov, Russian classic)
          A war, or even an exercise, is a series of tests to ascertain the probabilities of various events. This is a very costly business. Highly. And if there is no observation, there is not at least primary experimental data, then the whole event has no purpose and meaning. Then Russian military science dies.
          But on the other hand, data is being collected. And they draw conclusions. Because they are preparing to fight in a real way. German General Staff officers do not get out of Ukraine.
          The questions formulated in the previous post are designed to show how to evaluate the achievement of the goal.
          And in a few years it will be too late to carry out scientific work.
