Unmanned Aerial Aileron


Russian "Pantsir" could not bring down the drone of militants

The effectiveness of the Russian ZRPK "Pantsir-S" for the protection of "Khmeimim" caused a lot of questions.

Over the past month, militants have attacked the Russian military airbase "Khmeimim" more than 45 times, as evidenced by the statement of the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, and although all attacks by the fighters "Jays al-Izza" were successfully reflected, experts identified at least two incidents, when drones "kamikaze" were not shot down by Russian air defense systems.

As is known, one of the main means of air defense of the Russian military air base "Khmeimim" is the "Pantsir-S" complex, although other air defense systems are used to repel the attacks. Based on official statements, all the enemy drones are successfully amazed even on the approach to the target, but recently presented photos show that not all drones manage to knock down.

A few days earlier, photos of drones of militants who participated in the attack on "Khmeimim" were presented, including the restored Russian drones "Aileron". Despite the fact that it follows from the official statement that the drones were shot down, the Russian UAV, which is relatively small, did not receive visible damage, which caused a lot of questions about whether Russian systems are really effective. Moreover, a few months earlier it became known that one of the enemy's drones could fly over the air base "Khmeimim", but because of the failure, fell two kilometers to the west - it also did not get damaged.

In the opinion of experts, Russian air defense systems, although they proved their highest efficiency, but even they can not guarantee an 100% result.

"No matter how effective the air defense system is, it can not destroy targets for all 100%, as evidenced by two known cases. Of course, Russian complexes are extremely effective, but the military should think about duplicating means of protection, for example, local EW complexes covering only the perimeter of the base ", - said the analyst Avia.pro.
