Despite the fact that the Russian Strela-10 air defense system was developed in 1974, and in 2014 it was upgraded to the Strela-10MN version of the air defense system, as it turned out, this air defense system can operate quite effectively against small-sized targets. The air defense system can operate covertly and has 8 9M333 missiles; the complex is capable of hitting targets at a range of up to 5000 meters and an altitude of 3500 meters. The 9K35M air defense missile system is valued for its simplicity and reliability. The story of a Russian operator about the effectiveness of the Strela-10MN air defense system in Ukraine.

Footage of an attack by two Ukrainian FPV drones on a homemade Russian robotic platform has been published. The video was filmed in the Avdeevsky direction; a Russian tracked drone was used to deliver ammunition and food in the most dangerous directions, where the use of conventional transport is too risky. The Russian drone is equipped with the Volnorez electronic warfare system, which we previously talked about. At the time of the attack, the Breakwater electronic warfare system was not installed on the tracked drone.

Footage from the Ukrainian M2A2 ODS Bradley infantry fighting vehicle, made in the USA, captured by Russian units during the fighting in the Avdiivka direction. The Bradley infantry fighting vehicle was used by the 47th separate mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian army and was knocked out on the northern flank of Avdiivka. As previously reported, Bradley infantry fighting vehicles could not evacuate Russian units to the rear for a long time; this was hampered by the Ukrainian army and the poor condition of the roads. As a result, this was done with the help of two military tractors. As can be seen from the video, the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle was quickly restored and is already on the move, and the external appearance of the armored personnel carrier does not look bad. It is not reported whether Russian units of the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle will be used in combat operations, or will be sent to factories for research.

Footage of a Ukrainian soldier disassembling a Russian 300-mm 9M55K cluster rocket used in the Smerch MLRS. The 9M55K missile, with a cassette warhead, contains 72 9N235 fragmentation-type combat elements, weighing 2 kg each. Each of the 72 combat elements contains 96 fragments weighing 4.5 grams and 360 light fragments weighing 0.75 grams. The mass of the projectile is 800 kilograms. 9N235 combat elements are subsequently used for dropping from drones. On the channel you can also watch the use of the 9M55K cluster rocket in Ukraine. And the dismantling by a Ukrainian soldier of a 155-mm M483A1 cluster projectile made in Turkey.

Ukrainian troops attacked the port in Feodosia with cruise missiles on the night of December 26, the head of Crimea Sergei Aksenov made a corresponding statement. It is not reported what object was attacked, but a powerful explosion occurred on the port territory; perhaps a military warehouse was attacked. According to the governor, the area of the city port has been cordoned off due to the incident. According to him, at this moment the detonation, it is not specified what exactly, has been stopped, and the fire that arose as a result of the attack has been localized. All relevant services are on site. According to the latest data, the Russian BDK "Novocherkassk" of Project 775 was damaged.

A massive missile strike was launched on Ukraine on December 29. The Russian army launched a massive attack on Ukraine today. Cruise missiles Kh-101 and Kh-555 were used from Tu-95MS aircraft, supersonic missiles Kh-22/Kh-32 from Tu-22M3 aircraft. Iskander ballistic missiles, Kinzhal hypersonic missiles and Geranium kamikaze drones were also used. Some of the missiles were shot down, some fell on city blocks, and the video shows the fall of one of the downed missiles. The Ukrainian army announced the interception of almost all Russian missiles. The strikes were carried out on critical infrastructure facilities, the Army Academy in Lvov, warehouses and facilities in Kyiv and Kharkov, and the building of the Artem rocket and space enterprise in Kyiv. There is no exact information yet. Strikes were also carried out in Dnepropetrovsk, Ternopil, Rivne, Khmelnitsk, Vinnitsa and Zhitomir.

Footage of the strike of the Russian Kh-47M2 Kinzhal hypersonic missile in Ukraine has been published. The rocket's speed is enormous, about 14,000 kilometers per hour. At the final stage of the flight, the missile reduces its speed, this is done so that it can work as an active radar homing head for the missile. Without reducing the speed, under conditions of plasma formation, it is impossible for the rocket to receive satellite navigation data. The impact of the Kinzhal missile is also shown in slow motion, otherwise it is difficult to see; the video was filmed by a resident of Kyiv.

A group of Russian military personnel came under attack from cluster shells from the Ukrainian army. The unique first-person video was taken in the Kremensky forest; judging by the video, no one was hurt. Presumably the attack was caused by a 155 mm cluster shell. At the moment, no one has ever made such video footage. The video has been shortened.

An episode of the combat work of the Russian T-90M “Breakthrough” tank in the Marinka area has been published; during the battle, the tank puts up a smoke screen. The T-90M tank reportedly overcame a minefield and the first line of defense of the Ukrainian army, after which it began firing at the second line of defense of the Ukrainian army.

Footage of Russian kamikaze Lancet drones striking two Ukrainian PzH 2000 self-propelled howitzers made in Germany. It is worth noting that the Ukrainian Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled guns have fairly good camouflage and were difficult to notice. The location and time of the Lancet drone strikes have not been reported. In the video, it is unclear what damage the Ukrainian Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled guns received. Please note that in the second video, the Lancet drone is armed with new ammunition; before reaching the target, it hits it with a cumulative jet or impact core at a distance.

Footage of an attack by Ukrainian naval drones on the Russian missile boat "Ivanovets" of project 12411. As can be seen in the video, the ship was attacked by several naval drones, probably about four, they were coming from different directions. The crew fired at the drones, but the available defenses on the ship were not enough to repel the attack. The video shows that the ship is being attacked at the location of anti-ship missiles and at the stern; one hole under the missiles is already on board. After several attacks, the ship tilted on one side and after another blow, a powerful explosion occurred on the ship. As shown in the video, the ship eventually sank. Judging by all the attacks of sea drones, equipment equipped with machine guns on ships is clearly not enough to protect against drone attacks, we need to look for other solutions.

Footage of a Russian, presumably ballistic missile, hitting a Ukrainian launcher of a German-made IRIS-T SLM air defense system. The Ukrainian IRIS-T SLM medium-range air defense system was deployed between the villages of Lesnoye and Russkaya Lozovaya, in the Kharkov region. In the same place in February 2022, four Ukrainian launchers of the S-300PS air defense system, as well as a Soviet-made 5N66M radar, were destroyed. Before the impact, the site was monitored and radar emissions were detected.

Footage of the interception of two Ukrainian HIMARS MLRS missiles, manufactured in the USA, by the Russian Buk-M1 air defense system. It is difficult to intercept HIMARS MLRS missiles on the Buk-M1 air defense system, since the speed of HIMARS MLRS rockets is about 700 m/sec, and the flight speed of Buk-M1 missiles is 830 m/sec. But it is possible to intercept HIMARS MLRS missiles if the missiles are intercepted on a collision course. It is worth noting that the crew of the Buk-M1 air defense system must be experienced, since the HIMARS MLRS rockets are accompanied by the Buk-M1 air defense system radar for only 10-20 seconds.

Flight of Ukrainian SCALP missiles over the S-300 air defense system, overview of the situation. Footage of the flight of two Ukrainian Storm Shadow or SCALP missiles of British-French production has been published. Above the Russian S-300 or S-400 air defense system in Crimea. The missiles were allegedly flying towards the Belbek airfield. Let's start with the fact that from the video it is not at all clear to what degree of readiness the air defense system was. Soldiers are visible walking, an operator looks out from one car, and from another, soldiers got out and are standing next to the car. The flight of two missiles in this situation is quite possible. The fact is that the S-300 or S-400 air defense system should be equipped with a 40V6MD mobile tower, with a 76N6 low-altitude detector designed to detect low-flying targets, but they are not in the video. Ideally, for better detection of low-flying targets, the S-400 air defense system should receive data from AWACS aircraft or balloons. Without these systems, the complex may simply not see low-flying targets in a timely manner. It is also worth noting that the S-400 air defense system should be covered by the Pantsir-S1 air defense system or the Tor-M2 air defense system, which are more effective against low-flying targets. According to the latest data from specialized resources, in the video of the S-400 air defense system, the complex did not include a 40V6MD mobile tower with a target illumination station, which is why it was not possible to hit the missiles in time.

Rare footage of the Su-34 attack and the explosion in the air of the Russian FAB-500M62 aerial bomb has been published. The video shows an attack with four bombs on Ukrainian army hangars used for storing equipment. The video was filmed in Volchansk in the Kharkov region. Notice that the third bomb exploded in mid-air. The FAB-500M62 aircraft bomb contains 213 kilograms of explosive.
