Russian complex 1Л222 caused the loss of American UAVs in Afghanistan


The reason for the loss of American drone could become Russian complexes.

Since the beginning of this year, the US military has lost at least three strategic unmanned aerial vehicles in Afghanistan. According to the American side, the cause of the crash was some technical problems, however, experts suggested that the reason was the use of Russian means of electronic warfare and suppression

“When three identical drones crash during the last three months, it's time to think that this is not an accident, but a system. It is possible that the Afghans could have Soviet or even Russian complexes, including the 1L222 complex. ”, - the analyst notes.

Experts draw attention to the fact that previously significant successes in intercepting the American MQ-9 Reaper were achieved by Iran, which could transfer to Afghanistan one of such systems, or independently act on American drones, since Helmand Province, in which all incidents were recorded, located actually in the area of ​​the system 1Л222.
