    🇫🇷 🇮🇹 🇺🇦 The rumor that France would send #Mamba systems to Ukraine with Italy is false.

    A source from the Ministry of the Armed Forces tells us that France is NOT going to send SAMP/T Mamba systems to #Ukraine. This rumor is unfounded."

    The Aster missile—named after the Greek word for “Star”—was conceived in the 1990s by Eurosam, a consortium of MBDA and Thales, to defend warships from enemy aircraft and sea-skimming cruise missiles at short range. Today, Aster missiles can be found in the launch cells of warships including the Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyers and France’s Horizon-class frigates.

    In the 2000s, Eurosam began developing an enlarged Aster missile with four times the range to provide area air defense. This new Aster 30 not only supplements the short-range Aster 15 variant at sea, but is also deployed on a land-based launcher, the SAMP/T (French: “Surface-to-Air Medium-Range/Land-based”), replacing dated I-Hawk and Crotale SAMs

    The latest Aster-30 Block 1NT model can intercept aircraft up to seventy-five miles away, and can fly fast and high enough (maximum 65,000 feet) to intercept tactical and short-range ballistic missiles, as well as low-flying drones, cruise missiles and aircraft.

    How much you wanna bet that the money was issued by Germany and Austria to get them there, but that the Oligarchs skimmed a lot off the top.

    It appears that they are NOT the same: the one on the photos is a Ukrainian chopper that was shot down near Konstantinovka, the one in the video is a Russian chopper that belonged to a PMC (which explains why they used an old model that's not used by the Russian military).

    I don't know if these are the same helicopter but the pictures and the video appeared at roughly the same time and the wreck that was photographed near Konstantinovka is definitely a Ukrainian Mi-8. twitter.com/Militarylandne…

    So Russia will target the loading port to disable the grain deal ? That's a good idea. Targeting ships would be too provocative

    To be fair he quoted the UN aid chief. Which we hadn't had before

    And just to comment, striking the port sounds like a capital idea
    The cover that these ship convoys afford has been used thus far to conduct a terrorist bombing on the Crimean bridge, and now an attack against the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol. That's plenty enough justification to shut the whole operation down. But of course firing on civilian shipping would be unwarranted.
    Russia has several choices, including blockade, harassment/inspection.. but those come with the risks of exposing vessels to anti-ship assets in Odessa and Nikolayev. Simply destroying the port is safer and easier, and then assume that any ships coming out of Odessa are hostile; as civilian cargo craft would no longer have any business being there.
