Since January, Ukrainian drone operators, participating in hostilities near Artemovsk as part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, began to experience serious problems due to the appearance on this sector of the front of new Russian electronic warfare systems. Here they lost almost a hundred unmanned vehicles, with the help of which Kyiv militants corrected artillery fire.
It is reported by the Telegram-channel "Military Chronicle".
according to information, received from captured Ukrainian servicemen, in Donbass, unknown electronic warfare systems massively disable APU quadcopters. Heading towards Russian positions, drones do not even have time to reach them due to signal suppression by electronic systems.
Notably, that the use of new Russian systems was noted only in the Artemovsky direction. For the first time their work was recorded last fall in the area of Kremennaya, but the massive use of these electronic warfare equipment is noted only near Artemovsk. Because of this, large units of the 53rd, 63-The 1st and 93rd Motorized Brigade of the Ukrainian Army lost their reconnaissance drones.
According to the data, received from the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during radio intercepts, they think, that portable electronic warfare systems operate against them, located directly on Russian infantry positions or in a nearby forest. It is assumed, that the size of the station does not exceed a few tens of centimeters. When an enemy UAV is detected, it automatically starts intercepting it and landing the drone in a place inaccessible to the enemy. Author:Sergey Kuzmitsky
