Russian Pole-21 electronic warfare (EW) systems effectively suppress American M982 Excalibur precision missiles, preventing them from hitting targets.
Associate Professor of the Department of Systems Engineering at the US Military Academy West Point writes about this in his article for Forbes. Vikram Mittal.
“The Russian electronic warfare system Pole-21 jams the GPS signals needed for Excalibur projectiles launched by the Ukrainians. As a result, the projectiles deviate from the intended course and do not hit the target,” – writes the author of the article.
He also admitted that the Russian army was able to surpass the Ukrainian Armed Forces in terms of the efficiency of using drones.
“The Russians have had success with their Lancet loitering munition. These highly accurate and compact drones are difficult to detect and use an unpredictable flight path, making it difficult for Ukraine to counter them,” – states the expert.
Previously EADaily reported that according to Business Insider, the latest Russian Lancet kamikaze drone has a new way to evade the defenses used by the Ukrainian military.
