Russian air defense shot down five American ATACMS missiles during an attack on Crimea - Ministry of Defense

The next day of the special operation again took place with the superiority of the Russian army, which continues to expand the zone of control of the Russian Armed Forces in the Ocheretino area. Another direction where the situation for the Ukrainian Armed Forces is very difficult is Chasov Yar, where ours continue to try to reach the flanks. The enemy is forced to defend, responding with counterattacks.

Yesterday evening and tonight the Russian Armed Forces launched missile strikes and drones-kamikaze type "Geranium". The targets of the attack were the Kamenka airfield in the Dnepropetrovsk region, where hangars with UAVs were destroyed, as well as warehouses with aviation ammunition and aviation equipment at the airfields of Priluki, Chernihiv region and Starokonstantinov, Khmelnytsky region. In addition, a temporary deployment point for foreign mercenaries was hit in Nikolaev.



At night, the enemy attacked Crimea using ATACMS operational-tactical missiles, targeting air defense systems in the area of ​​Cape Tarkhankut. According to the Ministry of Defense, our air defense shot down five missiles. According to resources, more than five American operational-tactical missiles with cluster warheads took part in the attack, but no casualties were avoided.

Units of the “West” group of troops occupied more advantageous positions and defeated the manpower and equipment of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Sinkovka, Petropavlovka areas of the Kharkov region, Grigorovka DPR and Chervonaya Dibrova LPR. Three counterattacks were repelled in the Novoselovskoe LPR region. The “southern” group of troops improved the position along the front line and inflicted fire defeat on the enemy in the areas of Kleshcheevka, Andreevka and Krasnogorovka. Four counterattacks were repelled in the Chasov Yar area.

As a result of active actions, units of the "Center" group of troops liberated the settlement of Novobakhmutovka and defeated the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Leninskoye, Keramik and Semyonovka areas. 10 counterattacks were repelled in the areas of Novgorodskoye, Ocheretino, Novobakhmutovka, Netailovo and Berdychi.

Assault groups of the Vostok group of troops occupied more advantageous positions and defeated enemy manpower and equipment in the Pavlovka and Lugovskoye areas of the Zaporozhye region. Units of the Dnepr group of troops inflicted fire on the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Kamenskoye, Rabotino districts of the Zaporozhye region, and Ivanovka and Olgovka of the Kherson region.

The total losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces per day along the entire front were: in terms of personnel - 1145 people killed and wounded; for armored vehicles - one tank, three armored vehicles, an armored personnel carrier, 36 vehicles; howitzers M777, M198, Msta-B, D-20, M-46, two Gvozdika self-propelled guns, one PzH-2000. Four Enclave-N electronic warfare stations and two field ammunition depots. During the counter-battery fight, the following were hit: two D-20 guns, five D-30 howitzers and two MT-12 Rapiers, two M777 howitzers, an M109 Paladin self-propelled gun, two M101 guns.

    Two Majors (https://t.me/dva_majors/41077) reports at least 15 missiles.

    It can be assumed that the enemy is trying to knock out entire air defense areas in preparation for Kyiv to carry out a large-scale attack on Crimea. Yesterday there was information that the Ukrainians agreed on this possibility with their chief curator.

        The launch range is very respectable - it is difficult to track the launch site. If we confidently shoot down, then it’s good, sooner or later they will run out of them, and new ones are unlikely to appear in such quantities (more than 100 pieces, as stated).

            In 1989 he served in the army at the airfield.
            So there, all units with equipment were given schedules for when there would be a window between American spy satellites. If possible, all equipment from under the roof or from under camouflage was required to be released only during these windows.
            It's probably the same now.
            And NATO has similar charts of our satellites.
            The vehicles probably leave the location of the launchers during windows.

              Until the Tajiks drive us away and the “Window” is closed, everything that flies above us can be seen from a tennis ball or more, it’s easy to calculate the time when you can’t see it, but there is time, 1 satellite - 90 minutes, two -45 minutes, well, that’s true, conditionally , in the same or close orbit they also need to separate

            we need new types of drones,
            so that they could be quickly sent by a tactical-ballistic missile to the desired area, and then it would circle there like a lancet and look for the target where it had gone

          The Ukrainian Armed Forces really have a problem with ATACMS. The starting machines are from Hymers. As is known, there are few of them. To launch it across Crimea, for example, you need to move this entire cavalcade closer to the LBS. And this is where the fun begins, as soon as the guidance station is turned on, it is immediately detected and Iskander goes there or a couple. Time to deploy and assemble the launcher is 7-8 minutes. Hence the failures in the “massiveness” of launches in order to break through our air defense. Now they are also thinking about it, but since there are not many options, here or lose calculations or or…

          The Piggies are now putting all their efforts into removing our air defense in the zonal responsibility of Crimea and the Krasnodar Territory.
          Focus on the Bridge, airfields, residences in Sochi and oil refineries in the Krasnodar Territory. Anything that will make a picture.
          We are striking at the rear, taking out equipment, warehouses with missiles and hotels with specialists. In response to a strike on the S-300 and S-400 positions, they die 10-20 people of foreign specialists and terminals with weapons. The pig has little time, the May Day holidays and famous events on them are close.

          It is not so difficult to detect and determine the coordinates of the launch site; colleagues correctly point out that it is much more difficult to hit such a target on retreat; we need means patrolling the area that could be easily retargeted in a short period of time. Keeping duty pairs in the air constantly, even from the Su-25, is very expensive in terms of money, quickly burns up the engine's service life and carries certain risks for the crews. This is where groups of 1-2 AWACS and 3-5 attack drones with class missile weapons would come in handy the American "Reaper" or the Turkish "Akinci", but such specimens have only been going to exhibitions for years...

      Apparently the whole “cunning” of the attack on the Crimean Bridge, approved by the West, is in its massiveness. Like heterogeneous long-range missiles, up to 50 in number, from different directions. The answer will probably be to destroy the main Kiev bridge across the Dnieper.

    Of course, this lullaby of the West with pushing the lines of inadmissibility further and further is already pretty boring. After all, if you think about it, the West supplies weapons, will provide missile technology with crews to hit our cities, kill our fellow citizens not only in Crimea or Donetsk, but everywhere, no matter where - everywhere in Russia. And we maintain diplomatic relations with them. Am I the only one who thinks this is abnormal?

    It is clear that we do not want unnecessary escalation. But there are probably limits to everything. However, I admit that we don’t know much and, obviously, there are some reasons for our behavior. However, it is still very exciting. First of all, the reports of the Belarusian KGB about attempts to attack Belarus with drones, smuggle militants across the border and provoke a Civil War, in order to then call on NATO, are alarming. The situation on the border with the Baltic countries and Finland is tense.

    In general, I am even more convinced that the second half of the summer - autumn of this year will become a standstill: a big war with NATO will break out. And you can talk as much as you like about the economy, about business, but we must not forget that the disinterest of our business in the war is not a sign that economic and political circles in the United States are not interested in it. And the more hesitantly we act, the more we are altruistic, the more confident they are that their elections can be doused in our sacrificial blood.

      b) let's do it without emotions, relying on objective possibilities.
      All that we can oppose to the collective West is to wear down the enemy by running. The alternative is total thermonuclear annihilation of freaks. But this does not guarantee that the enemy will understand that he is wrong.
      They need to understand. And this, alas, is a long way.

              Supplying weapons does not mean fitting in at all. It’s just that the United States is using the situation that it itself created for its own purposes. But this does not at all mean that the United States is ready to enter into an open conflict. At this stage they don't need him at all. Moreover, a massive exchange of nuclear weapons strikes will lead to results unacceptable to anyone. 404 does not have nuclear weapons, not yet. And you shouldn’t wait for it to appear, even in the form of a “dirty bomb.” Because if they have it, they will not talk about humanity/possible answer and other melancholy. They are a terrorist state. And such a state must be dealt with accordingly. Do not negotiate, but destroy.

        This is how you look at it) If ours have never dealt with these atakms before, then it’s not bad at all. The more missiles, the SUDDENLY more they will study their flight parameters and be able to withstand them. Are there many other countries in the world capable of shooting down these missiles?) We can also export this knowledge. Both in the form of pure knowledge, and in the form of export of air defense with algorithms and instructions to operators adjusted for this purpose.

    How many didn’t hit?? The Ukrainians, by order from above, are clearly trying to knock out the Crimean air defense as much as possible before a massive attack on the bridge.

    There will be fun when the TAURUS start flying. ATACMS are butterflies compared to German products

    ATACMS is much more difficult to shoot down than a subsonic cruise missile.
    This is a quasi-ballistic target that reaches almost outer space at enormous speed and also falls quickly.
    With low-flying cruise missiles, the main problem is the radio horizon, due to which ground-based radars see them at a distance of no more than 30 kilometers.

      On the other hand, the Americans are relatively free in training our troops and defense industry to fight their weapons. We don’t pay for these supplies =) Ours are clearly not idiots, most likely they are trying to study the flight parameters of missiles, etc., which ultimately affects modernization, and this is an export and an advantage, because few people get such experience. Again, you can share it with your allies. And I don’t think this is much to the benefit of the Americans.

    One thing is clear. There will be no tourist season in Crimea this summer. (It’s scary to imagine beaches full of people and cluster missile warheads.)

      you are deeply mistaken - our stupid people cannot be frightened by this - they will hide and are already heading for May, despite the fact that in the Crimea there is a storm again and thunderstorms with downpours are promised and it is already “dripping”

    Intercepting a ballistic missile, especially with a cassette warhead, is a hopeless endeavor. Destruction of launchers is also very ineffective.
    A truly effective missile defense system is good camouflage, protection for people and equipment, and early warning of attacks.

    Five were shot down, more than 5 were flying. Where are the rest? again there are no casualties and destruction? storms fse? now there's a new scare about attacks?
