The effectiveness of Ukraine’s air defense system is 64%, which is much more than a week ago.
Source: Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Brigadier General Oleksiy Gromov at a briefing, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
Direct speech: “The effectiveness of our air defense system is at a fairly high level – 64%, and this is 81 missiles out of 126 used were destroyed.”
Details: He pointed out that after gaining experience and receiving new models of man-portable air defense systems over the past week, the effectiveness of Ukraine’s air defense system has increased significantly.
The representative of the General Staff stressed that since October 10, the enemy has sharply increased the intensity of shelling. He fired 154 rockets across the territory of Ukraine, which is almost 7 times more than in the first ten days of the month. Then 21 missiles were fired.
Air-launched cruise missiles have become the main type of missile weapons used by the enemy over the past 10 days, which was not the case before.
The number of missiles used – 83 units – exceeded the number of missiles of these types used within 4 months: during June, July, August and September. During that period, only 43 missiles were used.
