Russian kamikaze drone "Lancet" destroyed the Ukrainian P-18 mobile all-round radar

Russian troops continue to use kamikaze drones to destroy Ukrainian infrastructure, as well as armored vehicles and various complexes. If in the first case, Geran drones with a long range are used, then in the area of ​​​​the contact line, Lancet loitering ammunition is actively operating.


Recently, the Russian military has increased the intensity of the use of kamikaze drones, which has borne fruit. Videos appeared on the Web about the destruction of American M777 howitzers, as well as various radar stations, including P-18 - mobile two-coordinate all-round radar.

According to the TG channel "Archangel of Spetsnaz", in the Kherson direction, a P-18 radar of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fell under the attack of the "Lancet". The Ukrainian station was discovered by a Russian reconnaissance drone, after which loitering ammunition worked on it. It is worth noting that the radar station of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was not so far from the front line, since the range of the Lancets does not exceed 40 km and they work mainly in areas of enemy positions. The defeat of the station was recorded from another UAV that was filming.

The shown destruction of the P-18 radar station of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by the Lancet is far from the first, around the middle of the month a similar station was also destroyed by a kamikaze drone, even an attempt to cover the radar station with smoke did not help the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russian drone hit it in the stern, where the equipment of the antenna-mast devices.

The Russian military speaks well of the Lancet drones, but they ask to increase the mass of the charge, which is not always enough to destroy heavy armored vehicles. But the main request of the military is to supply the troops with as many drones as possible, both attack and reconnaissance. The importance of UAVs in modern warfare has been shown in the past months.

      It remains to screw AI instead of the operator and welcome to the future

      The eternal theme - what will happen if a person trusts to make decisions for him ...

      "Guardian birds learned very quickly, their knowledge became richer, more diverse. Abstract concepts, at first barely outlined, expanded, the birds acted on their basis - and the concepts were again generalized and expanded.

      Prevent murder...

      Metal and electrons reason logically, but not like people.

      Creature? Any living being? And the guard-birds began to guard all living things in the world.
      ...
      High in the sky, the Hawk attacked a bird guard. An armored killer car learned a lot in a few days. She had one single purpose: to kill, Now it was directed against a very specific type of living creatures, metal, like the Hawk itself.

      But just Hawk made a discovery: there are also other varieties of living things ...

      They should be killed too. "

        The "lancet" is a surgical instrument, it works accurately. It's nice that there are no complaints from the patients.

        The task of AI is to quickly find a military facility in the picture from the UAV. and highlight it to the operator. Then the person will make a decision. By the way, there is experience in screwing almost any city camera to AI, all of Moscow issues fines for belts like that.

            This will be a step into the "new future"... When a person cannot feel safe from AI decisions. So far, at a primitive level, AI is now attributed to everything, like "nano" and "3D". But the time is not far off when a person will be replaced in decision-making. Nothing good can come of this...

        In the news for the month of July:
        .... Lancet flight duration increased from 40 minutes to one hour. In addition, the mass of the warhead has grown from three to more than 5 kg ....
        But, perhaps, not only modernized drones, but also previous releases get to the front.

    Well done for destroying it. good
    So continue to lancet Svidomo to the fullest.

    PS Indeed, why don’t they modernize the Lancet? They ask the same military warheads to increase. Or again there is no motor that will pull the increased mass? And with the current one, the loitering time will probably become even shorter ... An ambush if so ...

      So it is, no. It is the engine that sets the possibilities of technology.
      We need a range of engines from 50cm³ to huge marine diesels. And we simply don’t have this line, and this is the merit of the West. Since they are now restricting the semiconductor industry in China, imposing all sorts of sanctions on it, they also did not allow motor building to develop back in the USSR and further in Russia.
      And the liberals explain this external influence (by blocking development) to those (inspire us) that supposedly we don’t know how to do anything and, in general, our hands grow from the wrong place. )))

    Yesterday I saw footage where the Lancet destroyed (with a savory badaboom) a Buk-M1 in the Belozersky district of the Kherson region.
    The shots with howitzers, radars and the aforementioned beech are archival, apparently. Lancets are now least needed in the Kherson direction.

      why do we need it? I have a VUS, and two years of experience in opera. Radar, and you "tabletists" had to be hit in the face after flights so as not to "hand over" to the leadership, the laziest and "sleeping" on flights, then in a hurry they will draw the usual lines with a pencil and that's all - they served "flights", only "ducks" for two years of service. and after the emergency, along their lines, the "pisyany bull", the crew were looking for hell, understand where. villains. didn't see a single one. next to me, an Armenian, Aivaz, was sitting on the "tower", six months younger than the call, he would hatch his balls into the "point" of the altimeter ... and at any second he would say the height of the requested "mark", at any ...! This is what I understand, he was really a "pro". but the "kid" is 18 years old, and the flights lasted a long time, and even at night. always just treated him with respect, not everyone can do that.

    But what about Su-34 bombers and X-31 missiles for a million dollars a piece?
    After all, it seemed that having such weapons and such aviation with the air defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine would be finished
    very quickly.
    But this turned out to be completely different - outdated sighting systems on these aircraft,
    obsolete weapons, the inability to obtain accurate intelligence and more.
    And the lack of planning bombs for them.

    This means that it was necessary to start programs on UAVs a long time ago.
    Mass programs, including strike drones, air defense breakthrough drones, strategic
    reconnaissance drones and others.
    But none of this was done.
    The backlog is now huge even from Turkey in this area.
    And from the USA for 25-30 years.

    She has already shown herself. It's not that modern aircraft cannot suppress air defense, the fact is that modern aircraft are very sorry because they are insanely expensive
    What would happen during the current war in the sixties? Correctly concentrate several hundred aircraft on the front and strike. Like the Israelis 150rd. Yes, they then lost XNUMX aircraft, but they completed the combat mission.
