Buk-M1 air defense systems adapted for American missiles

Soviet Buk-M1 air defense systems, which the Ukrainian Defense Forces use for air defense, have been converted for use with American missiles. This decision could strengthen Ukraine's air defense in the winter, when Russia is likely to attack energy infrastructure.

Yuriy Ignat, spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, said this in an interview with Radio NV. According to him, the air defense systems with American missiles were tested at a test site in the United States.

The partners have already announced that the results of their combat use were successful.

Ihnat clarified that Soviet missiles are in short supply, as Buk-M1 and S-300 systems are produced only in the aggressor state of Russia. Therefore, Ukraine should look for alternative solutions and combine Soviet and American weapons.

"We need to look for steps, ways, such as crossing the Soviet and American. They (protect - Ed.), albeit at a small radius," he said.

In addition, the Air Force spokesman said that the Ukrainian army needs a large number of not only Buk, adapted to US missiles, but also HAWK systems, which, although outdated, have been modernized and are already showing results.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, the partners provided the Ukrainian army with additional air defense systems to protect the infrastructure from possible Russian attacks on the eve of winter. Ukraine already has NASAMS, Patriot, IRIS-T, Hawk, and Raven air defense systems in service.
