Ukrainian resources report that Kiev is preparing Storm Shadow missile strikes against airfields based on Russian army aviation

The Russian army has a colossal advantage in the air, army and operational-tactical aviation inflicts blows on the advancing units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, destroying armored vehicles and personnel. At the moment, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have the opportunity to neutralize this threat.

The absence of its own aviation capable of fighting the Russian one in the area of ​​​​the line of contact, as well as the inability to pull up air defense systems to the front, led the General Staff to think about strikes against the airfields of the army aviation of the Russian Armed Forces. According to Ukrainian resources, the operation to neutralize attack helicopters is being developed by the Ukrainian General Staff together with the British, since cruise missiles supplied to Kyiv by London should play the main role in it.



Kyiv plans to inflict a series of strikes on Russian airfields where army aviation helicopters are based with Storm Shadow cruise missiles. It is assumed that this will somehow neutralize the air threat, since it is helicopters that cause the biggest problems for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, hunting for Ukrainian armored vehicles. When the attack will be carried out, as well as other details are not known.

The only thing that greatly upsets the Ukrainian General Staff is that the air-launched missiles handed over by the British and for their use will have to lift the remnants of Air Force aircraft into the air, and this, with a high probability, will be new losses. Now, if Kyiv had long-range ground-based missiles, then that would be another question. I went to the position - made a launch and left it, no anti-aircraft systems are terrible. Zelensky’s attempts to extort from the United States operational-tactical ATAKMS, which can be used with the HIMARS MLRS, continue.

    Why would they allow public coverage of "military secrets" when they even ban air defense videos over Kiev?

        They are now imprisoned there for posting passing vehicles on the Internet.
        So they learned to stop the publication of plans.
        In the media, regarding plans, they either spread official data or their fantasies.
        True, I do not know what will happen to the newspaper if their fantasies coincide with their real plans.
        Airfields, of course, are much better equipped with air defense. But after all, strikes with ordinary drones have already been missed. Storm Shadow will be faster. So the opportunity is real.

        Wow, how politically incorrect! And this was during the "LGBTQ+ Pride Month", under which they grabbed June without asking anyone. In accordance with the latest trends, instead of the offensive "cock" should be used something like "a person of non-traditional orientation."

      Need advertising. Less for us, more for Western audiences. After all, they spend a lot of money. There is a lot of discontent among their population. Although they are well aware that there is air defense, most of the missiles will be shot down.

        Do you know how many percent of these missiles are shot down? Even one that breaks through to the airfield will cause trouble. As a percentage of these British missiles, no more than a third can be shot down, by the way. This is a more difficult target than the "chimera." Aviation must be dispersed (which is done , I hope. Not like in Chernobaevka), destroy carriers-SU24

          These missiles were not fired at airfields, but there are still more conditions for a successful shooting down than over Luhansk. And they don’t shoot them en masse, there are one and a half carriers left.

        The West will increasingly use the NATO territories bordering Ukraine to form strike forces, and a strike on these positions is a matter of time. NATO has been at war with us for a long time, only until they call it in their own words ... And with regards to nuclear weapons, even NATO understands that Russia will not use it to the last, because. its use will entail many casualties among the civilian population, and Russia positions itself as the side of "good." Therefore, even if a direct clash with NATO begins, it may not come to the use of nuclear weapons. The West will fight, fight, try to squeeze the maximum out of this situation, and then they will come running to negotiate ... And NATO can wage a permanent war for a long time, because the Poles, Balts, etc. will go after the Ukrainians.

        The example of Argentina has shown that the attempt to occupy British lands does not even scratch NATO. And when the Poles found the rocket in the forest, they also somehow quickly fell silent. Only the Poles can threaten war with NATO, and when it comes down to it, they will limit themselves to regular sanctions. If they wanted to fight all NATO with us, they would have started long ago, they never had problems with the start of hostilities, they always found a reason

    It's not even funny anymore. First of all, the Ukrainian media begin to talk about the preparation of the operation, which already leads to certain thoughts - for complacency or is it still for disinformation in order to strike at Russian aviation in another place? The fact that English ears have been sticking out here for a long time is not surprising - where a trick is being prepared, they always stick out. And most importantly, it was smoothly translated into the need to supply ground-based missiles.

      Nagan is one of these, teaches us life here ..)))
      In general, if these English medium-range missiles hit our airfields deep in Russia, then according to international law, this is considered an attack in the truest sense of the word, and it is precisely those who created these missiles and delivered .. Russia has the right to strike at England with all available means !
      PS In general, the communication cable in the Atlantic needs to be cut to hell and said that it’s not us And let them sit without communication, they say every day the west will lose 30 lard and terrible losses will begin ..

    There is nothing funny. They regularly post satellite images of our helicopters in Berdyansk, for example. Will definitely hit. And then the media will mock. They will combine the combat operation with the information one.
    At least one rocket, but it will fly.
    For me, it is necessary to expand the dispersal zone, develop new regulations for aviators, taking into account the sharp increase in reserve positions for equipment and personnel.

    I hope that airfields (not only helicopters) are covered by air defense systems and are not guarded on the ground by watchmen, but at least by a company of soldiers. If there is such a cover, then all plans are in vain. The British are now apparently studying where there is no such cover.

    A little over 2 weeks ago, an article was published here "Ukraine as a cemetery of attack helicopters, and the concept of application" Roman Skomorokhov. Then I expressed and substantiated my disagreement with the author, saying that helicopters would prove themselves precisely in defense, attacking enemy armored vehicles from the rear from a safe distance of 6-7 km. Reality itself has now confirmed this. Is Roman Skomorokhov interested in sharing his new thoughts on this with us now?
    Storm Shadow missiles - they are good because they follow the inertial navigation system and are corrected according to the mapped route of the area, loaded in advance into the missile's memory. This allows them to go at low altitude and the "window" of their possible interception is very short. For the same reason, the "short-range" GMLRS ammunition for Himars also showed its effectiveness at the initial stage, until they learned to shoot down and spoof them (however, with an efficiency far from 100%), since the rocket was at the highest point of its ballistic trajectory for a very short time and the SAM crews had literally seconds to open fire. I will assume that the ATACMS long-range operational tactical missiles for Hymars, which Kiev dreams of, will be less effective than GMLRS, since the time they spend in the high part of the trajectory will be noticeably longer. After initial successes, our air defense crews will be able to adapt to them, learn to see them and shoot them down. They will definitely not become a panacea for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The deliveries of F-16s and the bravura comments of our Supreme Commander about the fact that they will burn (against the background of Su-24s, 25s and MiG-29s of the Armed Forces of Ukraine STILL taking off from nowhere) cause much more concern.

      attacking enemy armored vehicles from the rear from a safe distance of 6-7 km.

      But with a drone, you can expand the front by 60-70 km.

        He is well looked after. Pushed - he goes. Pulled - stops. Pull on the sleeve - turns. The teleprompter will display the text - reads. Something like the late Konstantin Ustinovich Chernenko - have you forgotten this? The only difference is that Chernenko read the text from paper cribs, and the senile Joe has a teleprompter.
