Attack on an airbase near Morozovsk: Satellite images revealed details of the attack by Ukrainian Armed Forces drones

On the night of June 13-14, 2024, the enemy launched a massive attack attempt on the Russian Aerospace Forces air base near Morozovsk using low-altitude kamikaze UAVs "Lyuty". The attack involved at least 35-50 drones flying with an ultra-low profile. Most of the drones were successfully intercepted by Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and gun systems. This data is provided by Russian Weapons.

It is noted that despite the effective operation of air defense, about 3-5 drones were able to reach the aircraft parking lot, where a reinforced unit of Su-34NVO fighter-bombers was stationed the previous day. Fortunately, thanks to the timely detection of the threat by Podlyot-K1 radar stations and the actions of ground units of the Russian Armed Forces, all five aircraft managed to redeploy to an airfield in another region.

However, two aircraft located in the maintenance and repair hangar could have received shrapnel damage. This incident once again highlights the importance of constructing advanced reinforced concrete hangars at air bases in the European part of Russia to protect aircraft.

"2 vehicles in the maintenance and repair hangar could have received shrapnel damage, which once again indicates the importance of constructing developed reinforced concrete hangars at the AB in the European part of Russia"provides data from “Russian weapons”.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has not yet commented on the satellite images that have appeared.
