Multiple Kh-22 missiles launched from Tu-22MZ destroyed the base of the 831st tactical aviation brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Myrhhorod, Poltava Oblast.
The air base of the 831st tactical aviation brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Myrhhorod, Poltava region, was destroyed by a precise strike of Kh-22 missiles launched by Tu-22MZ strategic bomber.
KH-22, a large, long-range cruise missile developed by the Soviet Union to target U.S. Navy aircraft carriers with a conventional or nuclear warhead.
According to Ukrainian sources, as a result of four strikes, there was serious damage, while the aircraft used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to strike with AGM-88A anti-radar missiles did not even save the special concrete shelters in which the aircraft were located.
It is known that Russian tactical air strikes were launched this afternoon, while a number of sources claim that during the attack, air raid balls were activated after the first strikes were delivered, which indicates the fact that Ukraine not only cannot shoot down similar missiles, but is also not capable of detecting them, which is primarily due to the fact that Kh-22 missiles are capable of reaching speeds of more than 4 thousand km / h, to combat which even NATO countries do not have air defense systems.
