Ukrainian servicemen protecting the sky in the ranks of anti-aircraft defense forces spoke in more detail about their work.

TSN communicated with fighters of mobile air defense groups. They say that after the announcement of the air alert, they get into their cars, drive to the position and start observation. The first group, consisting of a driver and a gunner, works with the American portable anti-aircraft missile complex Stinger. The military said that it was directed at cruise missiles, airplanes, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The second group is armed with the British portable anti-aircraft missile complex Martlet. According to the fighters, drones and missiles are shot down from it. In the spring of last year, with the help of MANPADS, the Russian UAV “Orlan” was destroyed for the first time, and already a dozen drones of the “Shahed” type are already on its account.
