    Hard to tell what kind of missile that is, but does not appear to be a Patriot missile.

    It's a pretty big missile. Probably patriot. At fast speed the shapes will not be really representative.

That was newest Ukranian drone type - only few pictures exist till now on internet, it has 4m wing span, it is not known how much range it has or payload etc... Attack was very successful. First Ukraine wanted to send message - so they send drones during day, second they are aware of Moscow air dafence, so causing large damage was not intention, it was rather message to Putin: look we can bring war to Moscow and other parts of Russia on our own wish. So it will not be only Ukrainian cities on receiving side. Still Ukraine must be cautious since many in West still do not approve attacks on Russian soil. But as conflicts drags on we will see huge rise of Ukrainian uavs, different models and types, some will have reach more than 1000km. So far this war was uav and artillery war. Today we Ukraine atacked refinery in southern russia, russia is too large country so there will be always paths to find through air defence and Ukraine knows this and will use it more and more for targets iit decides have value for them. There were days when Russia had to shoot 50 drones in one day so productuon in ukraine is growing exceprionally well too...

    In response to another Patriot destroyed, their military intelligence HQ, 5 aircraft, and a bunch of other military targets - they've hit what, a couple of residential highrises in Moscow?

    What is the message supposed to be?
    That they're ready to conduct terrorist attacks with some new drone that's useless for doing anything but that?

    And I don't believe it's some new uber-drone or that it's produced in the Ukraine but I don't have any information one way or the other. This 'bringing war to Moscow' crap was already done with the assassination of Daria Dugina and this attack is as 'demoralizing' as that one was. Which is to say it's not. Only serves to show everyone that these people are turning to terrorism and can't be negotiated with.

    To UCMVULCAN...

    Cheers to you bro.. thumbsup
    I have no problem with honest people no matter where those people are from.
    As far as I understand, you are also American or have been living and working in the USA for a long time. Anyway, that information did NOT bother me.
    People differ in customs, life habits, standard of living, but honesty must come first.

    I am a BIG opponent of violent regime changes and violent phenomena in the first place of Nazism and Bolshevism in the second place.
    I can't stand the term "Western civilization" because I know that behind it lies the disparagement of other civilizations.
    Has the West done much for the development of humanity ?
    Yes, it is, but nothing lasts forever and I have nothing against another country (outside the West) leading the world in the future.
    Of course, a lot came from the East or from scientists who are from the East but invented patents in the West.
    After all, it will happen in a year or in less than 10 years and I won't decide about all that anyway.

    I don't know who is hiding behind the profile name MR HD, but I know that HE is the worst possible piece of shit..!!!

" These drones were not micro-drones as our aficionado mr-hd pointed out . I was being sarcastic in my reference to them , belittling them . They were clearly visible , mid - range drones in the 400 mile range , most likely fired from Ukrs territory . Distance from kherson to krasnodar is 400 miles and from North Ukrs border to Moscow 320 miles . Likely same type of drone involved . In this case since range is limited , then drone most likely fly a straight path to target , otherwise going along the scenic , long distance route , means run out of fuel ! I said this before , that if a path is cleared of Air traffic from Ukrs border to big cities from Air traffic at low to medium altitude , then a variety of means for detection become possible .

    It was apparently being used as an ammo store. Maybe the RuAF waited for that. Bit of a waste to hit an empty ship.

    EDIT: photo added of impact on ship

    JOHN, this is the first time I've seen you mistakenly post already posted pictures - Belisarius already posted it...
    We all make mistakes...  thumbsup
    Of course, this is not a criticism...

    By the way, the only thing that interests me about American military power is the reliability of the air defense systems on the Arleigh Burke destroyers and Ticonderoga cruisers - but they are becoming part of history and 5 more are due to be decommissioned this year...
    If it turns out that the air defense system is ineffective, then the whole system is subject to "corrosion"...
    A big minus of the US military naval strategy is the reliance on the air component without powerful anti-ship weapons on destroyers.
    What they did not fail to do was further investment in submarines.
    There will be many changes in the development of weapon systems in the near future.

    I know and no mistake. Compare and contrast the quality of the photos in mine above and his at Post 700.

    Meanwhile, I hadn't realised that the HARMs were German sourced.

    Off the current topic on updates. Does anyone have any footage of Ukrainian refugees etc etc profiteering from the war I remember footage of them receiving 4x4 and then selling them in Poland, and many refugees living in Malta who had set up scam charity fundraising pages on various platforms to scam people out of money then living the high life in Malta,can seem to remember where the links were pretty sure it was on this forum.

    Pretty effective camo on these Bradleys. Believed to be Mountain Troops'

    The problem with camo on ground vehicles is that when you move or sit them on a dirt track unless they are dirt coloured they are easy to spot.

    If you want good camouflage for ground things you need nets and things to change their shape and you need to keep them stationary and off the road... otherwise you are wasting your time.

    When hunting the first thing that makes potential targets stand out to me is movement and after that colour camo doesn't help.

    Lots of fuel and ammo and people jam packed into a relatively small vehicle... a combustible combination.

    I notice a lot of the drones have enhanced vision. I don't think camo works against these. It can only trick the human eye as enhanced vision can detect a much wider spectrum

    The Russian military repelled an attack by Ukrainian militants on the border between Russia and Ukraine near the town of Shebekino, according to @razved_dozor

    The incident happened early in the morning, @bazabazon confirms the information.
    A unit of Ukrainian militants tried to break through using armored vehicles, tanks and engineering equipment.
    The first cars were blown up by land mines, the rest were opened fire from artillery.
    The enemy has now been repulsed.
    There has been no official information yet.

    According to the operational headquarters of Belgorod, there is still fighting and shelling going on but appears the Wehrmacht were handled properly this time and stopped at the border.
