HARM anti-radar missiles, which Ukraine received from the United States, did not help the Armed Forces of Ukraine to resist Russian weapons. Information about this is reported by RIA Novosti according to a source.
It is noted that these missiles have shown zero effectiveness against Russian anti-aircraft installations and air defense systems. The fact is that American ammunition has a too low maximum speed. It is only about 600 meters per second.
“For modern Russian air defense systems, such speed and visibility of an air attack is not a problem,” the source added.
At the same time, the Ukrainian military fires HARM missiles from a sufficiently large distance to avoid the destruction of their carrier aircraft. This greatly facilitates the detection of projectiles.
