The Armed Forces of Ukraine effectively use mock-ups to fool the occupiers and store their own equipment and weapons

The russians came up with a new fake about the "victory" of Russian weapons - this time the "victim" of Russian propaganda was not the real Ukrainian Buk-M1 anti-aircraft missile system, which effectively lured the newest russian weapons.

For example, footage showing the operation of the latest propaganda barrage munition, which allegedly managed to destroy the Ukrainian air defense system, appeared on the network.

However, if you take a closer look at the target, the destruction of which was reported by the russians, it may turn out that the occupiers took aim... at a well-made dummy.

In particular, in the photo above - a comparison of the rockets of the "destroyed Buk-M1 air defense system" with the 9M38M1 anti-aircraft guided missile. Most likely, the missiles for the dummy, as well as the "chassis" in the form of an ordinary truck, were made of ordinary wood and painted for realism .

In addition, it is also worth paying attention to the fact that as a result of the impact of the Lancet loitering munition, the so-called Buk air defense system literally fell to pieces, and the ammunition detonation is simply absent.

In contrast to this, we can mention, for example, the work of Ukraine’s Bayraktar TB2 UAV against the same enemy Buk air defense system - the strike was accompanied by a spectacular explosion.

In general, in the context of the "false" Buk air defense system destroyed by the Russians, it can be mentioned that the Armed Forces of Ukraine quite effectively use mock-ups to lure enemy weapons.

In particular, the Russian Kalibr cruise missiles are lured into high-quality wooden models of HIMARS - the occupiers have already spent literally tens of millions of dollars for false goals.
