90 Bayraktar TB2 strike drones shot down in Ukraine in three months

90 Turkish Bayraktar TB2 attack drones shot down in Ukraine in 3 months of NWO.

Since the beginning of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, about 90 reconnaissance and strike unmanned aerial vehicles have been shot down. Data on this subject is provided by a source from the RIA Novosti news agency. How reliable such figures are is unknown, since the information differs from the officially declared by the Russian side and documented facts of the destruction of drones.

“Starting from February 24, about 90 Bayraktar attack drones made in Turkey have been destroyed by air defense systems of the Russian Armed Forces. This is not counting those destroyed in hangars on the ground by high-precision cruise missiles.- RIA Novosti reports, citing its own source.

Such information raised some doubts, since, according to the briefings of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, about 70 Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial vehicles were destroyed, while to date, the documented losses of these drones, when compared with RIA Novosti data, are 11 times less.

It is known that Ukraine really lost a large number of Bayraktar TB2 strike drones. At the same time, if at the beginning of the SVO, the Armed Forces of Ukraine had 36 drones of this type in service, then at least four batches (12 units each) of these drones were delivered to Ukraine from Turkey.
