Members of the Armed Forces Russian Federation looking for ways to shoot down unmanned aerial vehicles APU, and shotguns are sometimes used for this purpose. This information was shared by military commander Alexander Kots.
The journalist began by urging that the drone attack on airfields in Russia should not be perceived as an act of retaliation for missile attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure.
“In order for Ukraine to stop the departure of Russian missiles across its territory, it needs not one or two Swifts, but a dozen or even two such drones. I don’t think that Ukraine has a large number of such drones now, but this, of course, is not an act of retaliation, ”the observer emphasized.
He recalled how he saw army UAVs at close range Ukraine.
“I took pictures, I remember, on the same day with the downed Tochka-U and the downed Reis, and the Reis was much more impressive than the Tochka-U. And we shoot down Tochki-U, and we shoot down Alder missiles, ”said Kots.
Based on his statements, shotguns are useful in some cases for destroying aircraft, but only at a fairly short distance.
“Fighters wrote to me and asked me to get anti-drone guns. Unfortunately, the short range of shotguns. If conditionally this copter hangs at four hundred meters, then it will be hard to shoot down, ”concluded the war correspondent.
As the Public News Service reported earlier, the commander of the operational command “South” of the Armed Forces Ukraine Andrey Kovalchuk made a statement that offensive actions of the Armed Forces should be expected in the near future RFexpressed in “millions” of military.
