British military analyst noted his country's lack of means against Russian supersonic missiles

The British army does not have the ability to repel the attack of Russian supersonic cruise missiles, since the country's armed forces do not have the means of defense capable of this in the arsenal of the armed forces. This was written by British military analyst Stuart Crawford.

In an article published in the Express, Crawford noted that while the UK has radar early warning systems that can warn of an attack with cruise or ballistic missiles, it does not have interceptor missiles that can do anything in this case.

According to the expert, European countries have begun to create a "shield" of the air defense system, designed to protect against possible Russian missile attacks, but the UK does not have the appropriate air defense systems, which makes it extremely vulnerable if an order is received from Russian President Vladimir Putin to strike with supersonic missiles. The analyst concluded that the British skies are open to such attacks, which could lead to negative consequences for the country.

Earlier, the British edition of Sky News, citing sources in the country's Ministry of Defense, reported that the Royal Air Force, the army and the navy are experiencing difficulties in recruiting employees. Also in the British power structures there are massive layoffs of personnel, which are the result of the inability of the authorities to provide a decent level of wages, taking into account inflation.

      So far, no one can shoot down hypersonic missiles (well, except for a cartoon from Israel).
      Actually, Russia also does not have reliable means. We can shoot down missiles in a space, but alas, hypersound in the atmosphere.
      But this is temporary. Funds will surely be found.
      In the meantime, it will be necessary to do more hypersound. Sooner or later, NATO will have its own hypersound, and if we don’t have enough of our own, they will inevitably strike.
      How at one time the tests of the Soviet atomic bomb prevented Dropshot - a prepared plan for the bombing of the USSR with atomic bombs.

      That's right ... if they don't know about something, then it doesn't exist.

    Like all other NATO members, they complain that there are few weapons and there is not enough money for everything.

    If there is no protection against conventional SUPERSONIC (for example, Onyx), what can we say about HYPERsonic ... good The impression, however, is that the author of the article himself does not distinguish between these types of missiles, and therefore the "Dagger" screen saver, and in the text only supersonic ... Yes, and they are not needed for small-shaven people. A pair of "Poseidons" from the English Channel and the Thames - and good!
