Archival photoMOSCOW, May 25 Since the start of the special military operation in Ukraine, Russian air defense systems have shot down about 90 Bayraktar attack drones in the air, an informed source told RIA Novosti. “Starting from February 24 Russian Air Defense Forces destroyed about 90 Bayraktar attack drones made in Turkey. This is not counting the high-precision cruise missiles destroyed in hangars on the ground,” the source said. The source added that “Bayraktar drones are an easy target for such Russian anti-aircraft missile complexes like “Tor-M2”, “Pantsir-S” and “Buk-M3” due to their relatively large size, low speed and extremely low maneuverability. “He noted that Turkish drones have a single-channel sighting and navigation system and for one a run can only attack one target. This also sharply reduces their survivability, since “on repeated visits they go astray with a 100% probability,” the source said. The drone has a wingspan of 12 meters and a takeoff weight of 650 kilograms. The device can carry four guided munitions on an external sling, including guided bombs and anti-tank missiles. According to open sources, 50 such devices were delivered to Ukraine before the start of the special operation. At the beginning of March, the Ukrainian side announced the receipt of new batches of “Bayraktars”.
