In Video: Russian Missile Smokes Ukrainian NASAMS Air Defense System

The Russian military has successfully targeted yet another Norwegian-American NASAMS air defense system of Kiev forces.

Videos showing the successful strike were posted to social media on March 22. The videos shows an unidentified Russian precision-guided missile destroying a NASAMS missile launcher deployed near the settlement of Privolnoye in the Zaporozhye region. The system’s Fire Distribution Center vehicle was parked nearby. However, it is unclear if it was targeted later.

The NASAMS was jointly developed by Norwegian Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace and American Raytheon to defend against drones, helicopters, cruise missiles and warplanes. When armed with reprogrammed AIM-120 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles, the system has a range of 30 kilometers.

The United States, Norway and Canada pledged to provide Ukraine with a total of 11 NASAMS systems. In addition, Lithuania said that it will provide two launchers for the systems. It is unclear however how many have been really delivered. Other countries, including the United Kingdom, Belgium, Sweden and the Netherlands, supplied hundreds of AMRAAM missiles to Kiev forces.

The Russian military has targeted Ukrainian NASAMS systems more than once, destroying several launchers and even American-made AN/MPQ-64 Sentinel fired control radars.

It’s worth noting that in recent months the Russian military stepped up suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD) operations within the special military operation zone in Ukraine. As a result of these SEAD operations, Kiev forces lost dozens of air defense systems.

i read that as vaporised in a modern waterloo, which is also another possibility. i wonder if ‘waterloo 2’ will be a win at the eurovision pride concert, sung by what is left of hato forces!

russian army and police are sharp but engagement plan from comander in chief and his generals are weak and risky.

really? soft psy-ops, to try and turn the people of russia against their leader? fortunately they have long memories and remember what life was like in the 90s. before president putin first came to power.

Barba Papa

why? because they act calmly, deliberately and rationally instead of like the emotional hotheads that you want them to be? doing things, blowing up things, because the news cycle demands it is the nato way.

thank you for making the article text wrap properly on small monitors. so older people can use ctrl+mwheel and see the fonts get bigger properly on old non-wide monitors too. without running away toward the right side, completely outside of monitor space.
