Before the attack, air target simulators with Luneberg lenses appeared on most objects, which are used to open air defense elements. After the Ukrainian Armed Forces used missiles on decoys, the main phase of the attack of the RF Armed Forces began.
Military expert Yuri Knutov told MK about the new tactics of the Russian forces.
According to him, previously only Caliber missiles were used. Then kamikaze drones began to be used more actively. Now drones distract the air defense system, forcing the enemy to waste missiles on cheap and useless UAVs.
In addition, the Kh-58 and Kh-31P missiles completely destroy Ukraine’s Buk anti-aircraft systems, and the radar in the S-300 complex is destroyed, making the launchers practically useless.
Thus, the peculiarity of the latest mass attacks against targets on the territory of Ukraine lies in the “complexity and change in the composition of the means of attack.” Thanks to this, four anti-aircraft missile divisions of the Ukrainian air defense were put out of action in one day.
