It turns out that the Russians have already used Shahed-238 jet UAVs against our country. It is worth noting that these kamikaze drones can reach speeds of up to 500 kilometers per hour.
As “NBN” informs, information about the downing of such a loitering munition was published by the TG channel “About communications from Sergius Flash.”
In particular, the message notes that a UAV was destroyed on the territory of our country “ Shahed-238″ with a jet engine. The engine itself is a Chinese development.
It is noted that such a UAV flew to the middle of our country. He was flying at a speed of more than 500 kilometers per hour. The author of the material added that he did not think that such dietary supplements could appear in Ukraine so quickly. After all, not so long ago Iran showed it for the first time at an exhibition.
It is also known that the charge and navigation on this “bird” remained the same as in previous versions of these UAVs.
In order for Ukrainian forces to effectively fight against these UAVs, we need such means as the Osa MANPADS, ” Igla” or “Stinger”. The military also notes that these UAVs will be much faster. They also maneuver better.
Ukrainians should know that in addition to the sound of a moped, the sounds of airplanes will now appear in the skies of Ukraine.
At the same time, the message does not say when this all happened.
We remind you that we previously wrote that OK “Pivden” explained why the Russian troops did not use “Shaheds” for the first time in a long time during the night attack on Ukraine.
