The Russians can drop their planning bombs at a distance of 50 kilometers or more, not reaching the border of Ukraine.
Russian troops have a large stock of aerial bombs. It is cheaper and faster to recycle them into Russian-controlled ones than to produce missiles. This was announced by the speaker of the command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Ignat on the air of the telethon.
He noted that as of today, the Russians can drop their planning bombs at a distance of 50 kilometers or more, not reaching the border of Ukraine. Therefore, Ukraine must have the means to hit the planes that release these bombs.
“These are new challenges and threats for us. As you can see, in this war, more and more new weapons are appearing, which are beginning to be actively used. These are kamikaze drones, and much more. We have already seen what aerial bombs are in Izyum , and in Mariupol,” Ignat said.
According to him, when Ukraine did not have powerful air defense, the Russian Federation used free-fall bombs.
“At present, the Russian Federation is forced to switch to a long-range range. And these are new challenges for us. After all, Russians have enough FAB-500 bombs. They need minimal refinement, the installation of wings and even a primitive navigation system, and thus become It is much cheaper for Russians than to produce very valuable missiles against Ukrainians under sanctions,” Ignat said.
He added that the Armed Forces of Ukraine also use similar bombs, but we do not have many of them.
“We still need to arrange their release, but we use them. And although these bombs are of lower power, they are very high-precision, so their effectiveness is many times higher,” said the speaker of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Recall that the other day during another attack, the Russian Federation used air bombs in the Sumy region.
As reported, the Russian Federation for the first time used planning bombs weighing 1.5 tons in Ukraine.
