Ukrainian/NATO Military Dealt Heavy Blow To Russian Air Defense In Crimea

Illustrative Image

On the night of April 17, the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the close-in support of the NATO military launched attack on the Russian military airfield in the town of Dzhankoi in Crimea. As a result of the attack, several powerful explosions thundered and a large fire broke out in the area.

According to the reports by the local residents, explosions sounded for about an hour. Russian military sources soon revealed important details of the attack.

The airport came under the attack of the US-made MGM-140 ATACMS tactical ballistic missiles. The first explosion sounded at about 3:40 a.m. Moscow time and the attack lasted about an hour.

The were reportedly launched in two waves from the Ukrainian-controlled areas in the Kherson region. According to some sources close to the Russian military, in total, 12 ATACMS were used in the attack. The first wave of strikes reportedly involved seven missiles, apparently with cluster warheads, and at least five more missiles were launched in the second wave. There were no reports about the interception of any missiles. The Russian military is yet to officially comment on the attack.

The local sources confirmed damage to the military facility. At least one of the buildings was damaged. The main targets of the attack were likely the air defense systems deployed at the airfield. The alleged photo from the spot shows the destroyed S–400 Triumph air defense system. 3 launchers and radars were reportedly destroyed.

The second wave of strikes reportedly targeted the point of repair of military equipment of the 77th anti–aircraft missile brigade deployed in the area, where two S-300 launchers were being repaired there. The secondary detonation of ammunition was heard in the town. Any damage to the depots at the airfield are yet to be confirmed.

The military airfield belongs to the 39th Helicopter Regiment of the 4th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense. There is no information about the damage to the aircraft.

According to unconfirmed reports, as of this morning, about 15 Russian servicemen were wounded, and another 22 were considered missing.

 

 

 

The attack was launched by the US-made missiles, with the close support of US military reconnaissance. Most likely, the US military coordinated and launched the strikes on the ground.

If the attack was launched from the Ukrainian military positions in the Kherson region, both MGM-140A with a range of up to 165 km and MGM-140B with the range of 300 km could be used for the strikes.

The American RQ-4B drone and the Boeing P-8a Poseidon NATO long-range radar reconnaissance aircraft was spotted over the Black Sea during the attack.

The Ukrainian/NATO military is preparing for a larger attack on the peninsula. Kiev announced that it is preparing another terrorist attack on the Crimean peninsula used by the civilian population. The main goal of the strike in Dzhankoy was to weaken Russian air defense before attacking the Crimean Bridge. On April 15, two Storm Shadow missiles were intercepted in the area of the port city of Berdyansk in the Zaporozhie region. Then, the Ukrainian military was probing Russian air defense.

interesting turn of events. that said, it is one battery that was taken out. now that one us down the rest are on high alert. the amount of resources used in this attack is massive and the likely hood of the repeat exact attack are limited. there are numerous batteries near the crimean bridge which ukriane hasn’t struck. the likelihood is that incompetent actions played a major role in this. happens to every military. israel being one such example during this whole gaza conflict..

military oversight, mistakes “on the ground” might have played a role in this event. regardless, the russian armed forces quickly learn from mistakes or strategic defensive errors.

every attack/counterattack leaves a trail…

its a big mistake again and again to blame fx air defence is 100%. israel is world famous for their socalled dome. i dont see incompent in that. is very difficult as well.

why don’t you just fuck off to your imbecilestan and degenerate school for more lessons on brain washing? listen to me now. tijuana is not far away from american bases in san diego. 120 mm mortar in a four to five minutes of fire can do much more damage. trust me.

48n6e3 missiles of s400 are designed to intercept ballistic missiles at speeds of mach 14. atacsm is mach 4 at a semi ballistic trajectory. 5 launchers with 20 missiles versus 12 atacms did not stand a chance. you need at least 10-12 launchers of s-400 to repel an attack of that size.

Malcolm Z

the only thing is that ukraine posted a fake photo of two ukrainians s-300 launchers destroyed by russian iskander on may 8 2022 and cover it with 2 launchers intacts close to with the purpose to hide the korotych village in kharkov.

the russian invaders and their air-defence architecture got hit really hard this time. likely it’s time for them to leave the place and better think about not invading foreign countries again.

i agree. but, for now the talk about red lines have been all talk and no play. russia keeps trying to negotiate and whatnot while it should follow the american model of shock and awe to end this war not wait until ukropistan regroup and rearm. i understand russia wants to prevent ww3 and is dancing on a tightrope. at some point they have to do what is needed. if russia used mexico as their proxy to fight usa they would already turned their neighbor in a parking lot.

paleblue

“if russia used mexico as their proxy to fight usa they would already turned their neighbor in a parking lot”

americans are too fucking stupid to realize that, but you are absolutely correct.

Unome

the jewinited snakes are already being flooded across the borders with millions of trolls and goblins from all over the world half of which hate the jewmerican guts and the other equally despising the scum of the earth and fucking up the filth 24/7 every way possible. this is just a preview, in no time jewmerica already descending into a developing country quality of life will turn into a guatemala with nukes. i speak from personal experience in los angeles.

Clyde

the russians should follow the american model? it really has worked well, hasn’t it? thanks for derping.

jens holm

who is russia? and there are no negosations at all. you must be blind.

the same from ukras. they want to russian influcence there by the ussr emepire.

the want to well connedted to the rest of the world, where there are hopes for the future. here eu is a big old tradepartner by sale of food and minerals – now just by kiev instaed of moskva.

they also want sell the needed food fx to countries in africa.

jens holm

the demands from us in eu are fair trade with no corruption and updated connection fx i roads, railwais and internet.

we want to invest there in a something for something, which raise they gdp. but they the demands are they replace ancient stuff as we do. we loose many jobs and systems. but we we also make more new ones, which are effective and better paid.

we can we beacuse schools and educations make people, which make workers, which cant handle it.

jens holm

the result also is tax, which finance that, hospitals, healtcae, medicine, wellfare and descent pensions.

that was not and is not a nato thing at all. it past past is ussr collapsed a whole empire with lack of vital reforms. im rather old. looking back ussr should have given gorbatev or jelsin the leadersship before ussr finally did.

jens holm

thats my private perspective. i live well in the lower middleclass. soon i get a dedsent pension and many things well be free. i have worked many years and deserve that otium – long or short

time for russia to upgrade their s-400 missiles with kinetic htk technology. proximity fragmentation is not effective against ballistic missiles. that”s why pac-3 uses htk kinetic warheads.

russia can upgrade their current s-400 warheads to be htk.

NATO humiliated

” with the close-in support of the nato military” so then nato is a part of the conflict. ok well, then bomb their hubs across europe. dont be a coward.

russia lack of balls by not blowing up nato recon flights over black sea that provided ukraine and nato forces on the ground the coordinates of the crimea targets is the reason for this.

this shit will keep repeating until russia grow some pair of balls,

Brush your teeth

russia thinks it can make a deal while their enemies see this as weakness and they became very brazen. this is no longer about “protecting” ukraine they have openly stated that they want to destroy russia and ukropistan is their horde to weaken their capabilities because they strongly believe russia will not use nuclear weapons as they didn’t use them during the cold war. russia going from village to village is grinding them down while carpet bombing of kiev would be much more effective.

AM Hants

is it true that the head of nato defence got taken out, recently?

AM Hants

sorry not nato, but, ukraine?

Brush your teeth

from what i read they killed lieutenant general dmitry krasilnikov with the last attack on a hotel. not sure if he actually died. but, ukrop command sounded very angry so it must be someone important that lost his head.

AM Hants

cheers, there is rumour that syrskyi and budanov got taken out. however, they said similar about budanov a few months ago.

AM Hants

really? by being patient? nato goes for shock and awe, when they hit funeral parties. russia, gets what it wants without using emotional hysteria. not long before nato has nought left in its toybox.

Clyde

do you suppose it’s likely to keep repeating once the failed ukrainian cia project can no longer field an army, a situation likely to occur sooner rather than later? gurble guk?

jens holm

russia dont posses the black sea in are air and water.

there are conventions about it. its also open crossing nato turkey.

Clyde

yes, because russia should take on the entirety of nato in open warfare instead of crushing their puppet army in the failed ukrainian cia project. the smart money is on fighting the empire and all of their european vassals at once. because s m r t. thanks for derping.

jens holm

thats right.

it was a condition for making ukraine it could defend it itself. of course we help them against the invassing aggresion because of that mr and mrs moron.

russians got all their nukes to make felt safe safe.

good one.i always wondered so myself. instead of decapitating the head of the snake and flattening kiev, russia seems to be fighting this war back to front.

its kind of correct.

they only look in their own behinds and with no candles.

its very visble here. the russians hardly know´what going on in their own country and are forbidden to talk about it.

next they are lied all over whats going on in the rest of the world and fx most things are much better in most things in fx eu and usa.

the only reason i can think of as to why russia has been soft on ukraine is that they know about plans of their enemies to invade russia and that they are saving the best for last. usa is trying to convince europeans countries to give all their aa to ukraine and won’t have any protection when the tables turn.
