Ukrainian efforts to defeat Iranian kamikaze drones are increasingly successful
Russia continues to use Iranian uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs) against targets throughout Ukraine, but Ukrainian efforts to defeat the Shahed-136 UAVs are increasingly successful, the UK Ministry of Defence stated.
“These UAVs are slow, noisy, and fly at low altitudes, making lone aircraft easy to target conventional air defenses. Russia is likely expending a high number of Iranian Shahed-136 UAVs to penetrate increasingly effective Ukrainian air defenses,” the statement reads.
According to Ukrainian official sources, up to 85% of drone attacks are being intercepted.
