The Armed Forces of Ukraine received air defense systems Hawk

In combat operations, the Ukrainian military is already using foreign-made NASAMS and Iris-T anti-aircraft systems. Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine have received the Hawk air defense systems from abroad.

Yuriy Ignat, speaker of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, announced this on the air of the telethon.



He stated that the American-made equipment received would soon be on combat duty.

The Hawk system is now being prepared to become part of the Air Force battle formations. Thus, we will strengthen the existing air defense system

- said the military man.

The MIM-23 Hawk anti-aircraft missile system is a medium-range air defense system. It began to be produced in the late 50s of the last century and has not yet been discontinued.


Ukraine received four such complexes from the Spanish allies in the middle of last month. Kyiv expects two more in November. In addition, the Americans promised to send missiles to the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the received systems.

Today marks the end of the 268th day of the special military operation of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine. The Russian army is delivering powerful strikes against Ukrainian military installations and infrastructure.

In particular, a logistics facility in Odessa, a large industrial enterprise in Dnepropetrovsk, gas fields and other facilities were hit yesterday by Russian strikes. A significant part of Ukrainian settlements faced frequent power outages.

Judging by the fact that these strikes have become a big problem for Kyiv, its air defense has shown little effectiveness.

      I think so by sea, railway transportation and road transport. We don’t want to cancel the grain deal, because some people are making their own gesheft on it, we don’t want to bomb railways and highways, because here some people are making their gesheft, for that we leave Ukrainians without light, water and heat, probably so that they would love us more, and at the same time we spend expensive high-precision weapons.

      the trick would make sense if the lion's share of Russian missiles were intercepted, otherwise even according to the most optimistic figures for Ukraine, it did not intercept even twenty percent of the missiles launched by Russia.
      Roughly speaking, out of 100 missiles of Russian missiles, for example, more than 80 reach the targets, which in turn indicates the effectiveness of Ukrainian air defense against them.

      The Armed Forces of Ukraine received air defense systems Hawk


      when placed in a city, they risk taking first place as a fighter of Ukrainian high-rise buildings. The West pours any of its rubbish into Ukraine indiscriminately in order that this rubbish can somehow interfere with Russia.

          Quote: tralflot1832
          But 20 rockets out of 100 did not fly.


          when planning missile strikes, the military initially assumes that part of the missiles launched at a particular object will be intercepted by enemy air defense. And it is considered an acceptable result when even out of 100 missiles launched, the enemy managed to shoot down 40 missiles. At the same time, I deliberately increased the effectiveness of today's Ukrainian air defense when intercepting our missiles so in reality they intercept less than 10 missiles out of 100.
          At the same time, just a few months ago, the effectiveness of Ukraine’s focal air defense was much higher, apparently during the easier time for the offensive in September, they transferred the air defense systems guarding the sky in the rear to the front line, thereby leaving not only their rear without cover, but making it easier for Russia to destroy these complexes that they effectively hid in the cities before.
          At the same time, due to low selectivity (the inability to accurately capture a target in dense urban areas), the transmitted western complexes showed their low efficiency when located in cities. The location of such complexes outside urban conditions (in a field outside the city) will lead to their inevitable loss.
          So, along with the destruction of the energy infrastructure, Russia, with missile strikes on Ukraine, is engaged in the decommissioning of the Ukrainian air defense, since without the same missiles for the Soviet systems now used to intercept Russian missiles, these same systems are useless, but only Russia produces new missiles for them.

      The United States and NATO countries have this type of air defense system simply a breakthrough, and they have long (and some have recently) been put into reserve. So they can put a lot of them. Another thing is that this complex is old, we have known for a long time, electronic warfare equipment and anti-radar missiles (old) are specifically designed for it. And for kamikaze drones, this goal is not difficult. Just more work to do.
      This is an approximate analogue of our old S-125.

            The Gavks may have another problem. As far as I understand, old-type radars are designed for high-speed targets, which are isolated using the Doppler effect. Because of this, for example, they could not capture hovering helicopters. For low-speed drones, the Doppler frequency shift is very small, therefore, the radars of old air defense systems simply do not see them. Not to mention the fact that plastic drones have a very low RCS, so they are also poorly detected.
            In short, old air defense systems designed for high-altitude and medium-altitude high-speed aircraft and missiles cannot operate on modern low-altitude and low-speed ones.
            Conclusion: more will stand and be used for posing. Just a trident of rockets against the background of the Ukrainian flag

      Some "grain deals" are worth something - the Odessa ports are untouchable and transports with weapons, ammunition, equipment and tankers with fuel go to them freely ... And the fuel is FOR SURE from Russian oil.
      And yes - it turns out that this year the Russian Federation delivered (and continues) record volumes of oil to the EU countries. Usually through spacers. That's how Stalin supplied Hitler, to this day they probably would have been plaited in the Second World War.

    The MIM-23 Hawk anti-aircraft missile system is a medium-range air defense system. It began to be produced in the late 50s of the last century and has not yet been discontinued.
    When I saw the image, I immediately thought that she was from around that time.

    And what, it will become easier if these verbiage continue to vilify their mantras?

    Where did they find this scrap metal? I hope they sold it for ten times the price? Well, I don’t believe that in the first place there will be those who know how to use it, they have long since died out in the USA, plus the lack of spare parts and missiles.

    Remember how in the spring everyone shouted with one voice that the war should be ended as soon as possible, because then the West would build up technology. And cheers, the patriots answered that they say slowly and surely.
    We bet that in six months we will see Western f-15 and f-16 aircraft in the sky over Ukraine, and there will be tanks.

    Ancient junk ... These air defense systems began to be produced back in the distant 50s, naturally, their characteristics are very modest, they remained only in Spain, Italy and South Korea. The rest got rid of them a long time ago. Is this all the West can sacrifice for the sake of Ukraine?

      Well, excuse me, our Su-25s are not much newer.

        The Su-25 was put into service in 1981, it is a quarter of a century younger than the MIM-23 Hawk ... This is a very long time, the American air defense system then is more likely to match the Il-40, if we draw parallels with attack aircraft.

      ancient junk

      Please tell me, does it matter, especially for the pilot, with what weapon he was shot down - modern or "junk"?
      The Spanish Hawks, by the way, are not a model of the 60s, they are a modernized system. Since its birth, the air defense system has already experienced either 3 or 4 upgrades

        You can kill with an ax and a fork, it's true, it's simple, going out with a fork at a person armed with a machine gun is a very dubious pleasure ... Modern weapons give you the opportunity to hit the target and stay alive, here the effectiveness of the "junk" is low in all respects: those who use it will suffer heavy losses, and it will be very difficult to achieve the defeat of the target ...

          Strange logic. If the weapon is not the first freshness, is it not deadly now? And your subsequent reasoning is even stranger. Are you drowning for ukrov? Somehow I don’t give a damn about the intruders, but it’s far from all the same to our guys, on whom these “obsolete” and “completely worthless” Hawks will work.

          Py Sy Spain has the most modern version of the Hawk, which has undergone several upgrades to this day and this is not at all the system that was adopted in the 60s

            I don’t “drown” for the “Svidomo” and it’s obvious that with regards to the modernization of the Hawk air defense system, the Romanians have also been modernizing the T-55 for many years, they have been produced since the 50s as well as the Hawks (true, " Hawk" were also produced later), it is obvious that modernized or not modernized T-55s are junk .... The same can be said about "hawks", and you can kill anything and for someone and "Hawk" - superweapon...

    Today marks the end of the 268th day of the special military operation of the RF Armed Forces...
    Judging by the fact that these strikes have become a big problem for Kyiv, its air defense has shown little effectiveness.

    Judging by the fact, dear author, that on the 268th day of the Strange military operation, the air defense of Ukraine still exists, our airborne forces and missile strikes on unknown objects demonstrated poor effectiveness.

    The Hawk complex, although quite old, is capable of causing problems for both aviation and cruise missiles. How big troubles will directly depend on the number of delivered complexes and missiles.

    Old air defense systems make sense against cruise missiles.

    Well this is necessary, what the Americans thought of !!!
    It looks like they carry Hawk air defense systems in suitcases to Dill. in passenger trains. So miniature. Or maybe the Poles in suitcases carry secret paths (smugglers)?
    How much "dough" did our generals get so that they would not "accidentally" see ??????
    In vain, the NWO people are deciphering the Strange Military "Operation".
    So where are we "fighting"?
