The invaders have a certain tactic, they simultaneously launch several drones.
Russia attacks Ukraine with Iranian kamikaze drones. The head of the Joint Precentre of the Southern Defense Forces, Natalya Gumenyuk, told whether it is possible to shoot down such drones and how to notice in time that dangerous “birds” are already nearby.
She shared information about kamikaze drones on TSN.
According to Gumenyuk, now the Russian Federation uses not only strike drones. The invaders also launch drones that collect information. The tactics of the Russians are simple, Gumenyuk stressed. Rashists launch several drones at once, so they are trying to “break through” through the air defense forces of Ukraine.
Kamikaze drones are not always visible. They fly at such an altitude that it is sometimes extremely difficult for air defense to detect movement and report an air raid.
“It is characteristic that the Shahids have a very loud motor. It resembles the sound of a moped or a chainsaw,” Gumenyuk noted and added that now Ukrainians should pay attention to such sounds, especially when they come from the sky.
If you see a drone, you need to go to the shelter as soon as possible. It is worth staying away from objects that can be hit by rashists.
Gumenyuk also said that Ukraine does not spend all its expensive missiles on such drones. It turned out that our defenders can shoot down drones even with small arms strikes.
