Krakushka was used successfully in defending the Hmeymim Air Base in Syria that was attacked by armed, if not primitive, swarming drones. An earlier strike by such drones had caused significant damage at the base, destroying some aircraft, and alarmed Russia’s military about a significant vulnerability at Hmeymim.
So much so, in fact, that Russia’s defense ministry brought back some of the drones that crashed and complained bitterly about the spread of drone technology in the Middle East.
The Russians might also have complained about China, which supplied the engines, the cameras and the GPS receivers and radios in the drones that were home-built by ISIS and others. But, of course, they did not want to stir trouble with their Beijing ally. For the record, the Russians said the swarming drones caused no damage.
The Russian press claims that at least nine Bayraktar drones were shot down on or about October 19. Some photos of the drones that crashed have been released by Armenia and have appeared in the Russian press, principally at Avia.pro.
Currency of Terrorist Turkey is on a freefall and their FOREX also shaking badly.
I wonder how long this Terrorist Turkey would be tolerated in the NATO which is saving it's ass from a invasion.
Let's hope this Khalifa Erorrdogan keeps doing Errors and leads his country to few broken pieces and some peace in the middle east. He is threatning and bad mouthing against France and US a lot. Historically this Terrorist Turkey is a nuisance to the world peace really!
With no Fed swap line and depleting FX reserves, analysts say Turkey is running short on ammunition to defend the lira.www.aljazeera.com
