The Pentagon called a prerequisite for sending Patriot anti-missile systems to Ukraine

Despite Zelensky’s expectations, the Patriot anti-aircraft systems promised by the Americans will not arrive in Ukraine soon. According to the publication Politico, the Pentagon put forward a mandatory condition for Kyiv, after which the air defense systems will be sent.

Kyiv will not receive anti-aircraft systems until the Ukrainian military has been trained and how to work with these "latest" anti-missile systems. This condition was set by the US Department of Defense and it is mandatory. Now the Americans are considering options for training the military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who in Kyiv will be entrusted with servicing the long-awaited air defense systems. Training, most likely, will take place on the territory of the United States at one of the military bases, and not in Germany and Poland, as previously assumed. It will take several months, from six months and above.



The military will not hand it over to Ukraine until Ukrainians are fully trained on how to use it.

- said a senior official from the US defense department.

Earlier, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine compiled lists of the Ukrainian military who will be entrusted with serving the American air defense systems. Preliminarily, they included military men who were trained at the Kharkiv Air Force University and have "prospects" for further service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At the same time, Kyiv promises that it will take much less time to prepare the calculations of the Patriot air defense system than the Americans allocate. According to the official representative of the command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Ignat, trained Ukrainian military will arrive in Ukraine in two or three months.

The anti-missile systems themselves are planned to be deployed on the territory of western Ukraine, somewhere in the region of Lvov. This decision was made in order to "be as far away from Russian missiles as possible."

      I hope that these calculations and the Patriots themselves will be destroyed as soon as they appear within the reach of our aircraft.

      Everything is clear with the "Patriot". But what happened again tonight in Engels was not very good. The air defense worked for "five" according to reports. But they report dead and wounded

      On New Year's Eve they "pleased" the Ukrainian side, which had already swept the territory in the places where the air defense system could be located, whitewashed the curbs, prepared an orchestra and a guard of honor to meet the overseas "gift".

      Of course, which of the Americans wants to be hit by Iskander or Dagger. Most likely, even TWO missiles will not regret it.
      The anti-missile systems themselves are planned to be deployed on the territory of western Ukraine, somewhere in the region of Lvov.

      It is not entirely clear: why are they there at all then? Nice to stand a couple of weeks?

        I would not regret the Dagger for each launcher and for each cockpit of the missile guidance station, since our industry will still make Daggers, but the Patriots will not be brought from overseas, but I suppose they will be pulled along with the first (and only) battery to the maximum, the manufacturer of the air defense system, oh, how you don’t want to be exposed to anti-advertising, but it is inevitable: if you actively use the complex, our missilemen or pilots will get to it and smash it to dust, and if you hide it and do not include it in work, they will blame the inefficiency of the complex!

          Patriots will no longer be brought from overseas
          Alas, they will. Don't feed the shitheads with bread, just let taxpayers' money be spent on some thread of crap that usually does not benefit the country.

        a dagger is hefty expensive for a patriot, but Iskander is the thing to check

      In case of failure, as well as the poor performance of this air defense system, or even in its absence, there will be someone to blame.
      The reason is trivial - the Patriot in the PAC-2 modification turned out to be ineffective against Iranian drones, ballistic and cruise missiles. This caused not only the discontent of the Saudis, who brought him to the United States (including the demand to supply THAAD complexes to Saudi Arabia), but even a series of publications in the mainstream American media (possibly paid by the Saudis), which directly stated that the advertising parameters " Patriot" PAC-2 at odds with reality. In fact, on a larger scale, the claims against the Patriot that arose after Operation Desert Storm, when
      it turned out that a significant part of Saddam Hussein's missiles quite successfully reached their targets.

      After the increased use of the Patriot PAC-3, as well as the involvement of aircraft to fight drones and cruise missiles, the percentage of downed missiles and drones increased (in this regard, the PAC-3 version is certainly more dangerous than PAC-2), but up to the conclusion ceasefire, the Houthis on a regular basis continued to break through the air defense of the Saudis and hit important objects on the territory of Saudi Arabia, which proved that the PAC-3 does not give any guarantee, even against Iranian weapons, which the Iranians were very pleased with, especially considering that significant some of the drones and missiles are assembled in artisanal conditions on the territory of war-torn Yemen, but this is quite enough to fight the air defense systems of the world military hegemon.

      Anti-missiles will be placed as far as possible from Russian missiles. Logically.

      And what is the point of such an anti-missile system? Then the best tank is standing in the rear on a pedestal.

      They will learn quickly, because these are not firms who comply with all the regulations and reinsure themselves a hundred times. Another thing is why they are in the Lviv region? Although one thing is said and assumed, but something completely different happens ...

      By the time the Khokhlospets pass the exams for a patriot, Ukronazism will remain "in the garden of elderberry, and in Kiev, selka" and he will be in a bombed bunker.

        Bomb a bunker built during the Soviet era for the government of the Ukrainian SSR in case of a nuclear war? This is a utopia. And CBO will last at least another two years, so let's wait and see

      Different opinions, statements, at the expense of the "newest" Patriots ...
      If it's true, these are systems of early releases, then they have already shown how they can not shoot down, then,, that, the third, the tenth. By the way, they say that not all missiles, especially the newest ones, can be used with them ???

      What do they have there..? Little Javelins Skakuasovnas are already growing up with might and main, three axes did not justify Ukrainian prayers and sacrifices, now Saint Patriot is on the way! There is no limit to Ukrainian dope and insignificance.

        Well, judging by the "chicken coops" that Jewelins are put on all our tanks, we are still afraid, and at least the soft tissues of the "space" will not agree with the low efficiency of 777 ....

      People are wondering, what's the point?

      The point is that they do not care about people in Odessa, Kharkov and other cities of the South-East of Ukraine. They are not considered full-fledged Ukrainians. And here are the most ardent ones. Russophobes in Lviv should be warm and comfortable, so that there is a desire to continue the war, mainly through the hands of the wrong Ukrainians of the South-East or even the Center of Ukraine. Zapadentsev will be protected to the very end, because the West is not just ready to fight to the last Ukrainian.
