L-39ZA aircraft delivered to Ukraine can be converted into a similar V-1 – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

The Militarist Telegram channel, citing Baltic sources, reports that this aircraft could become a kind of loitering munition, which will have a greater range compared to conventional ones.

If this information is correct, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive weapons whose principle of operation is reminiscent of the V-1 projectile aircraft used by Nazi Germany during World War II.

Compared to its predecessors, the “thirty-ninth” is heavier: 4,700 kg versus 2,160 kg, and has a range of 1,015 km with full fuel (German V-1s have 286 km). The mass of the combat load is about 1100 kg (for the V-1, up to a ton). Speed: 900 km/h versus 800 km/h.

It was previously reported that in Ukraine before the start of the special military operation there were less than three dozen L-39s in service. Later, some of them were lost. For example, in March it was reported that The Lancet destroyed a shelter with an Albatros-type aircraft at the Kulbakino airfield (on the southeastern outskirts of Nikolaev).

Perhaps the kyiv formations will try to create such winged missiles, but the Russian air defense system will be able to detect and destroy them without any problems.
