The Ukraine-Russia war was marked by American weapons! Powerful weapons that changed the course of the war made the Russians very angry. The Kinzhal-Khaner missile, which Putin called ‘invincible’, targeted the Patriot! But it was not successful!
The destruction of the Kinzhal-Khaner missile by the Patriots, the powerful air defense system of the USA, left its mark on the world’s public opinion. The behind-the-scenes of the incident confirmed by White House officials began to emerge! According to allegations, Russia deliberately targeted the Patriot air defence system!
Ukraine received Patriot air defence systems for the first time at the end of April, one of the most powerful weapons of the United States and competing with the Russian air defence system S-400! Ukraine’s possession of Patriots has angered the Russian invaders.
According to US officials, Russia detected the location of the Patriot from the signals emitted! Although the Russians fired the Kinzhal-Dagger missile to destroy the Patriot, they encountered a situation they did not calculate! That was the experience of Ukrainian soldiers who were trained for Patriots in Oklahoma, USA!
According to US officials, Ukrainian soldiers fired multiple missiles from different angles from the Patriot to intercept the Russian missile. Thus, the Russian missile was destroyed before it reached the Patriot. US officials congratulated Ukrainian soldiers for mastering the Patriot.
What makes the Patriot superior to the S-400 is its powerful radar to detect incoming long-range targets! This radar, which intercepts ballistic missiles and hypersonic missiles, is also a disadvantage. Because the signals emitted by the radar to find the target also pave the way for its location to be detected. It is thought that the Russian army also detected the location of the Patriot deployed outside Kiev in this way.
The Ukrainian army gained the upper hand in the war against the Russian invaders with the help of the US. Now it is preparing for a major operation to expel the Russian invaders from its territory. Undoubtedly, the biggest supporter of Ukraine in this operation was the USA. Until today, the US, the leading country of NATO, which has sent powerful weapons such as HIMARS, JDAM, Javelin, including Patriot, has so far provided $ 47 billion in military aid alone.
