More specifically, and according to a recent publication by the Russian state agency Zvezda, crews of Su-25 attack aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces launched a recent missile attack against Ukrainian fortifications and Ukrainian manpower in the direction of Donetsk.

Footage of the combat work of these offensive aircraft of Moscow was published by Zvezda, i.e. the channel of the Russian Ministry of Defence.

The Su-25s attacked positions of Ukrainian soldiers at extremely low altitude. The weapon they used for these impressive strikes was none other than S-8 unguided missiles, a system often chosen by Russian pilots for missions of this kind. After successfully launching the missiles, the Russian aircraft manoeuvred to avoid incoming enemy missiles and finally returned safely to their landing strips.

"We received the order to destroy an enemy stronghold. We moved towards the mission area. Unguided air-launched missiles hit the target. According to the relevant data, the assessment of our action was 'excellent'," said the Russian Su-25 pilot nicknamed Babsk.

New Russian Air Defence System in Ukraine

In other recent news, reported by the foreign Defence-Blog to inform you that some Tigr all-terrain vehicles of the Russian army sent to Ukraine were seen to be equipped with the Gibka-S turret, which launches air defence missiles.

More specifically, the Gibka-S is an air defence turret derived from the 3M-47 Gibka naval battery. It is designed to launch 4 Igla-type surface-to-air air defence missiles.


Operating essentially as a short-range surface-to-air system, the Gibka-S can be used against aircraft, helicopters, drones, cruise missiles and high-precision weapon systems operating at both low and high altitudes. The Gibka-S system can be armed with 4 Igla, Igla-S or Verba missiles.

Although the system is compatible with different types of missiles, its range remains the same: 6 km with the Igla-S and 6.5 km with the Verba missile. The maximum altitude is 3.5 and 4.5 kilometres respectively.
