OK: having discussed the ‘basics’ at strategic and operational levels, and certain of air warfare-related weaponry having major impact upon developments on the air war in Ukraine of the last few weeks and months, now let’s have a look at how is all (or some) of that applied in practice – and that at
We thank you, International Man of Mystery and Intrigue!
PSU can make trap in 1 place of 1500 km front. So VKS bombs other 1300km
Splendid. You put this 6-part series so well. I see why it needs these much lead-up. It all makes sense. Thank you!
Thank you very much! Great analysis of some of the ways air defense works! Written in clear and simple language. Thank you!
Danke schön Tom🤗
If your paid by 50 + Intelligence agencies, can i make coffee for you, i am cheap. :) Great and interesting work again. Wondering one thing are shoulder fired ground to air weapons more plentiful, and if so how deadly are they?
I was just going to write in part 5 "part 6 when".
After the Russian incident I did postulate to myself "one fire-control radar, just one launcher, and the support equipment necessary for their function" but I did not know about the "home-on-jam" capability which makes it much more feasible.
I hope Ukraine are able to distribute more such sub units, there are risks but the rewards are high.
As always, a reasonable scenario - Let's hope this is happening, and regularly, Tom.
The recent attack in Belgorod has demonstrated that spending billions on defense structures is useless if such structures are not guarded 24/7.
If the Russian public is sufficiently upset by such raids to demand the Russian military properly guard their defenses that can only help Ukraine.
Wunderbarer Artikel, kristallklar beschrieben und höchst informativ. Schönen Dank!
Wow! This is the most realistic explanation I've read. Another one was using optical targeting available in NASAMS, but that one did not explain the distance and ability to hit helos flying low.
Very informative. Sheds some light on a very likely possibility. I really wondered what hit the helicopter because it didn't seem as large as a BUK or S-300 or PAC-2 missile in the video since those are large. But we now have confirmation at least one of the jets was hit with a Patriot missile. I really wish we could send the Ukrainians more Patriot systems so they can utilize them like this. With such losses appearing more frequently I think the VKS would be in serious trouble. I wonder how true it is that Russia only has about 20 such EW Helicopters(Mi-8 MTPR) and the limits they have in producing more of them. I hope Ukraine will be able to target other aircraft operating in Belarus and the other parts of the front. Recently heard another Su-35 was hit flying over the Black Sea. This is extremely great news for us that want Ukraine to win. Anyways looking forward to more of these. I have learned alot. Thank you
#6 read and boy oh boy did I like this one, it was very clear seeing how this works and the PSU Sam operators have to have nerves of steel and the patience of Job thanks for a great series Tom

Thanks a lot Tom
