Iranian Shahed 136 drones are already in Russia’s war against Ukraine
In mid-August, we learned that Iran has sold a thousand of its drones to Russia.
Already on September 13, the Department of Strategic Communications of the Armed Forces reported that the Ukrainian army for the first time shot down an Iranian attack drone Shahed 136 (“Shahid-136”). The drone was shot down near Kupyansk, in the Kharkiv region.
The army confirmed that Shahed-136, repainted in Russian colors and renamed “Geranium-2”, are increasingly fixed near the positions of Ukrainian armored and artillery equipment.
Iranian drones are relatively small and fly at very low altitudes, making it difficult for Ukrainian air defense systems to detect them.
Nevertheless, according to the spokesman of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Ignat, these drones can be shot down by various means of air defense and even small arms, but anti-aircraft guns are best suited for this, as well as the Ukrainian “Shilka” or the German “Chepard”.
According to Western experts, the Shahed-136 can provide Russia with a “powerful counterweight” to high-tech weapons systems, such as HIMARS, which Ukraine has received from the United States.
