Military expert Yuri Knutov said that Russian military equipment can withstand the strikes of the FGM-148 Javelin.
He recalled that the Americans have repeatedly declared the effectiveness of the FGM-148 Javelin, writes Ukraina.ru. Nevertheless, the “military special operation” on the territory of Ukraine, which the Russian Federation has been conducting since February 24, debunked this.
According to a Russian specialist, Russian tanks received dynamic protection, which is triggered by the FGM-148 Javelin and the tank remains combat-ready.
Russian Su-25 aircraft are no less well protected. Knutov said that a partially armored aircraft can get away from missiles and perform the task assigned to the crew.
But the Ukrainian armored personnel carriers “Bucephalus”, says Knutov, easily break through, because they have poor armor. They have already been captured by the Russian military, and it turned out that they could not withstand even small-caliber shells.
According to Knutov, now the Russian Armed Forces are taking into account the experience of Mariupol, so they do not attack enemy positions head-on. The attack begins after the fortified area is destroyed by aircraft and artillery.
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation states that as of March 25, more than 1,300 Russian soldiers were killed in battles on the territory of Ukraine. Data on losses in April and May, as well as June, have not yet been announced. Also, the Ukrainian side reports 212 downed Russian aircraft. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation refutes these figures.
