Snippet:

More than half of Ukrainian planes and helicopters in the conflict for the independence of LPR and DPR in Donbass were found and shot down by anti-aircraft missile complexes, a modification of the famous "Strela-10M" "the Viper". Now the Design Bureau of precision engineering named A. E. Nudelman in cooperation with the Saratov aggregate plant brought to the state new short-range SAM "Pine" for tests, which surpass its predecessors on all counts. And if this complex were to enter service with the militia, the loss of the Ukrainian aviation could be substantially higher.


If I am reading this correctly it looks like the Russians are planning on adding some nimble new mobile SAM platforms to the Ukraine conflict zone in the second half of this year. These have been engineered for high suitability on a modern battlefield from what I gather. I thought was an interesting resource and wanted to share on ATS.

The Strela 10 is a nice missile, but short ranged. It'll be interesting to see the changes.

Cool, I am a guy and even though I complain about wasting money on things that go bang, I still like things that go bang.

There may come a day quicker than anyone ever thought; that when you get your Air warrior wings it will be the same as a death sentence; think kamikaze without the ships and boats..

Hand held, shoulder fired, faster, smaller, better, not to mention truck mounted multiple anti-aircraft weapons... What a cluster mess the next big one will be for aviation of all types. Ships have become sitting ducks now with all the satellite technology which knows when and where the boats are.. Yep there are high tech defenses against such stuff; all I can say is, "they better work out of the box".

EW is improving on par, or faster than the missiles, thank god. But it's closing fast.
