Images of the so-called decoy missiles that the Russian military uses to identify Ukrainian air defense positions have been posted on the web. Warheadless ammunition was made on the basis of the X-55 missile. Photos were taken in the Kyiv region.
The Russian military has recently significantly increased the number of missile attacks against military targets in the rear of Ukraine, while improving their quality. If former Russian generals often heard reproaches of being “nightmares” of Ukrainian transformers equipped with cruise missiles, today even recognized skeptics applaud the effectiveness of the actions of the Russian army.
At the same time, military experts separately note new tactics for launching missile strikes against protected objects in Ukraine. Its essence lies precisely in the use of a large number of imitators or decoy missiles.
These munitions, which are in fact X-55 missiles, have no warhead. But the air defense of the Kyiv regime is forced to respond to them, revealing their positions and spending ammunition.
Only after this do attack drones and cruise missiles come into play, which without any problems hit both air defense systems and important targets in the rear. A few days ago, using this tactic, the American Patriot air defense system was destroyed, and last night military installations in different regions of Ukraine were hit.
And the propaganda of the Kyiv regime, for its part, never tires of reporting a large number of downed Russian missiles. Images of the Kiev region posted on the web are the best confirmation of these statements. Ukrainian air defense really managed to shoot down decoy missiles. Nobody argues.
