The Armed Forces of Ukraine began using American AGM-114 Hellfire missiles

The Ukrainian military is increasingly using Western-style precision-guided munitions against Russian troops. After the GLSDB smart bombs, the use of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles was recorded. It is specified that this ammunition was used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the direction of Svatov.

According to military experts, almost any platform, from an unmanned aerial vehicle to an armored car, can carry such ammunition. The maximum range of the missile is small – only ten kilometers. But NATO armies are armed with dozens of different modifications of these missiles.

Russian experts are still struggling to say which of the modifications of the AGM-114 Hellfire missile was transferred to the Ukrainian army. Most likely, the Kiev regime received several versions of precision-guided munitions at once.

According to the Russian military, the Ukrainian army is trying to use high-precision weapons on the most “fat” targets from a military point of view. These are EW and RER stations, as well as air defense systems.

Russian army specialists point out that their Ukrainian counterparts have big problems with accuracy, while noting the trend of increasing use of precision-guided munitions.

Simply put, the Ukrainian army is trying to compensate for the low accuracy of using AGM-114 Hellfire missiles with a large number of them.
