Footage of the destruction of the Ukrainian Su-25 at the Dolgintsevo airfield in Krivoy Rog has appeared
Filmed with the help of drone objective control footage depicting the moment a new modification of the Russian loitering ammunition "Lancet" hit a Ukrainian Su-25 attack aircraft at a distance of more than 70 kilometers from the front line. It is reported that a Ukrainian military aircraft was destroyed at the Dolgintsevo airfield in Krivoy Rog.
The footage shows how a Ukrainian military aircraft stationed at the airfield is accurately hit by Russian loitering munitions, after which the aircraft is reportedly completely burned out.
Published footage indicates the significantly increased capabilities of the updated Russian Lancet loitering munition. Previously, footage appeared of the destruction of a Ukrainian plane at a distance of 69 kilometers from the line of combat contact, but this time the Ukrainian Armed Forces board was destroyed almost 10 kilometers further.
At the same time, in all likelihood, the Lancet was not launched from the front line itself, which means the range of new modifications of the loitering ammunition may turn out to be an unpleasant surprise for the enemy. In addition, it is worth paying attention to the conduct of objective monitoring, indicating a stable connection at such a distance.
The possibility of ensuring objective control also indicates the focal nature of Ukrainian air defense. Currently, the main threat to the Russian aviation represent the calculations of militants of the Kyiv regime, equipped with Western-made MANPADS, which NATO countries have filled the Ukrainian army with. However, the effectiveness of these calculations against UAVs is very doubtful.
