Now Russia has also launched foreign weapons against Ukraine, Iran’s Shahed-136 suicide drone is destroying the enemy

The Russia-Ukraine war has been going on for the last six months. Since the beginning, Ukraine has been using foreign weapons against Russian troops, whether it is Turkey’s TB-2 drone or the US HIMARS missile system. But now Russia has also put foreign weapons on the battlefield against Ukraine. According to a Ukrainian commander, in the first use of foreign weapons since the start of the war, Russia has inflicted heavy damage on Ukrainian forces with new Iranian drones. Artillery commander of Ukraine’s 92nd Mechanized Brigade, Colonel Rodion Kulagin, said last week suicide Shahed-136 delta-wing drones were spotted over Ukrainian artillery positions in the north-eastern Kharkiv region.

Devastation in the camp of Ukraine

These drones were painted in Russian and were rebranded as Geranium 2. The Iranian drones, which often fly in pairs and destroy the target, destroyed two 152-mm self-propelled howitzers, two 122-mm self-propelled howitzers, two BTR armored vehicles, the official said. Col Kulagin said Russia conducted a test last month targeting an American M777 155-mm Todd howitzer with the drone, before the current mass killing drone is used. So far, Iranian drones appear to be mostly stationed in the Kharkiv region, where the 92nd Brigade and other Ukrainian forces launched a major counterattack this month and recaptured some 8,500 sq km.

New model of Iran’s delta-wing design

Colonel Kulagin said that in other areas Russian troops have the firepower of powerful cannons. But here they do not have guns, so they have started resorting to these drones. Some independent experts who examined recent photographs of the drone wreckage from Kharkiv say it appears to be the Shaheed-136, a new model of Iran’s delta-wing design. Scott Crino, founder of strategic consulting firm Red Six Solutions LLC, said the Shaheed-136 could provide Russia with “powerful deterrence” from high-tech weapons, such as HIMARS. (Photo: Twitter)

Difficult to escape after target lock

He said that the presence of Martyrs-136 in the Ukrainian war is forcing Ukraine to change its plan. Ukraine’s giant battlefield makes defense against Martyr-136 difficult. Crino said that the Shaheed-136 can be used with great effect, first – by targeting radar systems and second – by attacking artillery. He pointed out that Iran also has antijamming systems that could make it difficult for Ukraine to counter. Once a martyr drone has locked its target, it is difficult to stop it. (Photo: Twitter)

Russia’s Weak Drone Program Exposed?

Russia’s use of the Shaheed-136 drone in Ukraine shows the expansion of Iran’s arsenal. It also highlights the shortcomings of Russia’s own drone program which is not able to compete with UAVs deployed by Ukraine. Israel and Western countries allege that Iran is using armed drones to attack Saudi Arabia’s oil industry, Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, US troops in Syria and tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
