BREAKING: Russian Su-24M Reportedly Shot Down By Patriot System Over The Black Sea

Illustrative Image

According to preliminary reports, a Su-24M tactical front-line bomber of the Russian Aerospace Forces was shot down during its combat sortie over the Black Sea.

The Su-24M was reportedly operating under the cover of the Russian Su-30SM fighter aircraft. According to Ukrainian reports, the bomber was shot down by the US-made MIM-104 Patriot is a surface-to-air missile system deployed near Odessa.

Immediately after the crash, the Mi-8 helicopter with search and rescue team on board came to the area. However, Russian sources reported that there were still no results of the rescue operation revealed several hours after the attack.

Meanwhile, residents of Odessa reported numerous explosions in the region. Air defense forces were active over the region. Strikes of Russian UAVs were reported in the evening.

possibly true, su-24 would otherwise operate “slow and low” in it’s main combat role.

there is a lady on youtube that claims a coalition of nations including russia is going to destroy the united-states or what the bible calls bablyon, will be destroyed in only one hour and will never rise again as a world power! but how can this be if my country on a daily basis humilates the russian federation and make putin look like a complete buffoon! just think about everything that we have done to russia and they have never done anything about it!

when the usa has the biden, clinton, trump supreme buffoons, putin looks like a saint

the us doesn’t need russia to be destroyed. we could visit all the humiliating defeats the gringos suffered at the hands of goatherders, farmers and the like. if i were american i’d feel so ashamed i’d never open the hole to say anything. of course, this is understandable too. how can an army made up of lgbts and other freaks win against real men even if they are armed with kalashnikovs and rpgs? “the best army in history”. this is a statement that causes hilarity all over the world.

the us is never mentioned in the bible.

libya was overthrown and gaddafi was killed because the countries of the middle east planned a gold-linked currency that would have weakened the dollar. in 2011, brics was born, whose members cannot be blackmailed by economic sanctions. the purpose of the sanctions was to topple the brics. russia and china. the west failed and brics is stronger, the west weaker than ever. ukraine the war in ukraine is collateral damage

manstation 1 and 3 (ms1 and ms3) will have been obliterated, meaning ukraine lost more human resources in the counter strike than russia has with the loss of a cold war era su-24m.

“crash” would suggest technical trouble rather than enemy action.

possible. nothing to say this isn’t out of the exception. patriot is designed for this. air craft interception, especially of a escorting and slow flying aircraft is within parameters. that said, if kiev moved their aa this far south it means they are desperate to slow the russian air dominate here. or they are paving for the paper wings of the f16.

CentralAsianStudies

if it is preparing dor f16, they would have to be flown in either from poland, or over the black sea. the later will be immediately intercepted once taking off and leaving nato airspace. the ukrainians likely are deploying all aa assets to limit russia interception in the area to achieve this likely. that said, the likelihood of the patriot battery being struck is high now also.

CentralAsianStudies

another mention is if the f16 are taking off from nato airspace, they will likely have to be without weapons equipped as taking off with weapons and if engaged while enrout to ukraine or piloted by ukraine would make nato directly implicit in any combat. at the moment nato cam hide behind the guise of material and intel support and “volunteer/merc” boots but this would drastically change.

patriot in odessa deployed unnoticed?

Questionmore

if true, then this is the only reported case of a patriot missile taking down a russian aircraft asset (as far as i am aware) since the air defence system was deployed on kiev controlled ukrainian territory. i would add the same point as another commentator made, the patriot system will now be one of russia’s prime targets in the odessa region, that’s if it has not already been taken out since this incident took place.

elint platforms like a-50u, il-22, su-24mp need to get to work. while drones like orion scout out the shores of odessa to find patriot. russian military imaging satellites also can spot patriot battery location. khinzals are waiting to smash this patriot :)

Questionmore

the loss of a russian air asset is negligible, experienced pilots are far more valuable so let’s hope the pilot was eventually picked up by the search and rescue team.

why did the patriots become operational in ukraine? why were they not bombed to smithereens as soon as they crossed ukraine border?

hash

they’re transported on road and look like regular trucks from satellite, they never turn on engagement radar, ukrops have loads of s300, buk protecting them acting as a shield. 1 battery in kiev was badly damaged/destroyed back in may by khinzal. ukrainians have 3 batteries total

khinzalator

time to do proper elint signals intelligence to find that patriot site and destroy it with khinzal. problem is urkainians never turn on their patriot fire control radar to reveal their spot. russians will figure it out :)

ukranians never turn on their fire control radar, instead use nato awacs and their own p18, 36d6 radars to detect jets, then only turn on fire control briefly when planes fly in engagement zone, then turn off right after and relocate. russian satellites, elint, drones can find this patriot battery and smash it with khinzal. next objective :)

this is mostly ‘likely’ fake news, as usual only sf is reporting this so far. this is very much on par with uk daily telegram bullshit made up soap operas.

think it was shot by a battery from romania border opperated by yankis. the us just declared ww3 to russia. russia, start hitting the yanki spie planes in the black sea, a erroded drone uncontrolled hit the yanki plane opperating to close to the war zone. colleteral damadge can happen.

russia should return the favor by giving advanced weapons to enemies of usraeli imperialism, the same way they arm ukraine. russia should give everything it can spare to hamas, hezbollah, syria and iran, and watch the usraeli puppet cry about it.

six months of time and one su-24m to finally show for it… doesn’t say too much about the quality of what is left of kiev’s air defenses over ukraine!

could be an f16 or f35 with aim 120 using stand off radar to zero in on su 24.

possible a few f16’s with western pilots are operating in ukraine using advanced missiles.

Piipii

how close to odessa? basic patriot range is 30km, extended 60-to-90km. flat range, so the plane must be much much closer. malfunction? in this confict: if you don’t have video, everything is just saying, nothing more.
