The Russian Su-57 fifth-generation multirole fighter destroyed a Ukrainian Su-24 bomber in the area of a special military operation. This is reported by Russian aviation blogger Fighterbomber.
At the same time, the possibility is not excluded that the Ukrainian Air Force aircraft is equipped with a British long-range Storm Shadow missile.
There is good news. Su-57 draws another beautiful star on the fuselage today. And if the APU Su-24 was with a few storms on board, then this is double good news
The transfer of Storm Shadow long-range missiles from the UK to Ukraine became known a few days ago. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have already begun to actively use new ammunition to hit targets in the rear of Russian troops. In particular, two blows were inflicted in Lugansk, inaccessible to the Ukrainian armed forces lately.
However, the supply of British missiles has called into question the safety of Russian military installations and civilians in Lugansk.
According to military experts, the Ukrainian army uses Soviet-made Su-24 bombers to carry out strikes using Storm Shadow missiles. From then on, the Fighterbomber blogger’s message takes on a special meaning. If the British missiles on board were destroyed along with the plane, then that’s good news squared.
Note that the Russian air defense system was also able to shoot down a British missile a few days ago, thus dispelling the myth of its invulnerability.
