Vadym is one of those who was trained in 🇩🇪 and now destroys 🇷🇺 missiles and drones with the help of the modern #IrisT system.

📸 Anastasia Olekhnovych.

The 🇩🇪 system is really modern, powerful and effective. Already during the first baptism of fire in October last year, the system shot down 100 percent ✅ of the targets, these are mostly cruise missiles, - says the anti-aircraft gunner.

Our "#BukM1" destroyed 10 🇷🇺 targets - #Mi24 helicopters, #Su30, #Su35 aircraft. At first we were stationed in the #Chornobyl area, then we moved to another one. When they offered to go to study in 🇩🇪 and learn new technology, Vadym agreed without thinking.

2-4 #PATRIOT Fire Units for Ukraine along with 4 #NASAMS batteries, already approved, will provide a fairy effective layered defense against Cruise & Short to Medium ranged Ballistic Missiles. Not impregnable, but will exact a cost if kept resupplied. CUAS will be on top of this. Image
It’s obviously not enough quantity but if used smartly, it can impose a serious cost in terms of 🇷🇺 wanting assured destruction of vital infrastructure, civilian or military targets around Kyiv. And at a time where Russia is running to Iran for help sustain its long range fires. Image
So far, I have not seen convincing arguments against 🇺🇦#PATRIOT. The most important Q should be whether the US can afford parting with PATRIOT given it has just 15 (+1) battalions. Risk there has been mitigated by Congress adding $700MM for additional FU's into the FY23 NDAA. Image

Ukrainian Military expert on defense against Iranian missiles: "The situation is very bad for us" (would be)

"Ukraine has few means of defense against Iranian ballistic missiles , so the situation, in case of their transfer to Russia, is "very bad" for us, military expert Pavlo
2/ Narozhnyi believes.

"This is not very good news for us. Because the ballistic missiles we are talking about - we have few means of protection against them. If the Pentagon or Germany gave us Patriot systems, then we would be protected. At least the points where such systems
3/ would have been installed", - the expert commented on the information of the British intelligence on the air of the telethon " Edyni Novyvi ".
this has to be taken in the actual/current context of Ukraine pushing hard (rightfully so in their pov) to…

Day 2⃣4⃣5⃣ of #Russia's illegal war in #Ukraine.

All the news, views and analysis in one handy thread, updated throughout the day.

And if you missed anything yesterday, here's the link:

Today Britain's Ministry of Defence highlights the work of saboteurs on #Russia's rail network - and I've another example of this in the next tweet.

UK Intel points out the problems the Kremlin can be caused by individuals or small groups damaging railways.

Recently in #Bashkortostan they've found another way to sabotage #Russia's rail network, and no explosives are needed.

Forcing open relay boxes and setting light to them will severely hamper the movement of freight for a while. These boxes control automated signalling etc.

The massed attacks on #Ukraine today again raises the question about different approaches to managing the long-range ballistic and cruise missile threat. 🧵
I am not claiming to have written the book on the topic, but I did write a chapter with that headline for the Swedish Defence Research Agency (@FOIresearch) a few years ago, so I have given it some thought. The tl;dr version is that it's hard.…
Ballistic missiles (such as #Iskander) are very difficult targets, and only the most high-end systems are able to intercept them and then within a rather limited range. Cruise missiles (#Kalibr) are easier targets, and many systems are able to at least in theory target them.

Starting LOT-36, Raytheon will only produce the C8 & D3 variants of the #AMRAAM missile (+ any future upg). Earlier this year, US Army awarded Raytheon a contract to integrate the C8 #AMRAAM into #NASAMS which likely also means that prod. AMRAAMER's will include same hardw/sofw.
US Army has so far not funded integrating the Sentinel A4 #AESA with #NASAMS. This as Raytheon continues to mature #LTAMDS derived #GhostEye #AESA to support #NASAMS upgrades. Raytheon still continues to deliver Sentinel A3 #PESA radars to the Army.👇deliveries to 60ADAR (Aug22).
#GhostEye is a C-band #AESA and will support #NASAM's newly added medium range air-defense mission that is enabled by the AMRAAM-Extended Range and future medium range interceptors. It appears that Kongsberg will continue to pursue it as opposed to seeking SentinelA4 integration.

This is why the $3 Bn package for new-build weapons makes sense now. It allows time for 🇺🇦 to build up some of its non-existent or severely depleted capability. 6 new #NASAMS should help but #NATO should order more. These will begin arriving in 2023.…
I have been calling for 🇺🇦 to be sent #NASAMS since January. They've sent a couple of systems but lost 6-months in ordering new-build sys that can easily be supplemented by existing missiles. This week's contract would still allow some deliveries in 2023.
How can they accelerate #NASAMS? This week's recent contract indicates that at all systems being delivered inside 24-months when these sort of contracts generally take 3+ years to execute. One of the ways they can accelerate this is by supplementing with US and partner missiles.
