<p>During the massive shelling of Kyiv, the Russian Federation used a Kh-101 type missile, which was manufactured in the fourth quarter of 2023. Experts received a photograph of the downed Kh-101 missile, which has an encrypted serial number. Decryption showed that the ammunition was manufactured quite recently.</p>

<p>The authors of the publication received a photograph of the downed X-101 missile. The serial number is clearly visible on it, which made it possible to establish the date of manufacture. This confirms the opinion that the Russian PKS did not fire missiles at Ukraine because it was necessary to accumulate a sufficient number of missiles for large-scale attacks, but this does not mean that the missile arsenal in the Russian Federation is drying up. However, this demonstrates that the pace of missile attacks will depend on the volume of production of new missiles.</p>

Usually, the possible time of production of Russian missile missiles is indicated by a ten-digit serial number, which is applied to all parts of the enemy’s design rockets. The experts there simply erased the serial numbers with a grinder,” the publication writes.

Now the Russians have begun marking their missiles with serial numbers that make them difficult to decipher. The first six digits are “complete gobbledygook”. Previously, products manufactured in 2023 had a number starting with “315”; “263” had numbers for missiles manufactured after 2020.

“The indication for the 4th quarter of 2023 as the production time of the downed X-101 is generally “hardwired” into the number 9 (in other words, from the seventh digit in the serial number you need to subtract “5”, and this is how you get the quarter number , in which the missile was manufactured),” noted Defense Express.

Probably , the Russians resort to such “tricks” to hide the possible origin of components used for the production of cruise missiles.

  • Today at night and in the morning Russia launched another powerful missile strike on Kiev Air defense forces shot down more than 60 over Kiev Russian Kh-101 missiles and 10 Kinzhals. The attack left at least 20 casualties.
