Military expert Sergei Khatylev said that Russian air defenses do not reflect all American missiles.

In particular, in his opinion, the Russian air defense will not be able to repel the ATACMS missiles that are launched by the HIMARS MLRS, although Russian air defense is already shooting down other missiles for this installation. For this, MLRS S-400 are used. But ATACMS missiles, which Ukraine has not yet received, can really become a problem for the air defense of the RF Armed Forces.

“Aircraft Missile Troops are now able to click HIMARS like regular targets. In the course of collisions with vehicles, it turned out that they did not have very high speed and a large reflective surface,” Khatylev said.

According to him, the Russian air defense also shoots down AGM-88 HARM anti-radar missiles.

It is worth noting that Ukraine continues negotiations on the supply of long-range missiles, although negotiations about this have left the public space. This is reported by several sources at once, noting that the supply of other modern weapons is being discussed.
