Another example of a russia’s weapon with "unique capabilities" failed to demonstrate all its "power" in Ukraine

The war in Ukraine should have been an opportunity for the russian federation to test and demonstrate the effectiveness of all its samples of the unique "one-of-a-kind" weapons, as well as all theories regarding the usage of it on the battlefield.

One of these types of weapons is the Lancet loitering munition, which according to the occupiers themselves "used successfully during a military special operation in Ukraine".

It is difficult to say how "successfully" and "massively" the occupiers use it on the battlefield, as it is quite problematic to find video evidence of the use of this weapon.

At the same time, Defense Express also mentions the following: last year russian propagandists actively promoted the idea of using the Lancet loitering munition as an "air mine system against UAVs" and claimed that the Lancet itself should become an effective weapon against Bayraktar TB2 drones.

Why such an idea was unsuccessful even at the stage of its voicing - Defense Express told in a separate article. Officially, russians report more than 80 downed Bayraktar TB2s, although the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a smaller number of them in service.

Additionally, Oryx estimates that 9 Bayraktar TB2s have been proved to be destroyed according to photos and videos since the start of the full-scale war.
