British-Made Martlet Anti-Aircraft Missile Spotted With Ukrainian Forces (Video)

File image.

British-made Lightweight Multirole Missile, also known as Martlet, has been spotted with Ukrainian forces for the first time.

On April 10, Ukrainian sources shared a video showing a soldier of the 95th Air Assault Brigade launching a Martlet missile from a man-portable Starstreak launcher at an aerial target. The sources claimed the target, allegedly a Russian Oraln-10, was shot down. However, the video shows no hit.

The Martlet was designed by Thales Air Defence to be launched from a variety of naval, air and land platforms against a wide range of targets.

While different guidance options were developed for the Martlet , the initial batch of the missile is guided by laser beam-riding with infrared terminal homing and a laser proximity sensor. The modern missile has a maximum range of eight kilometers.

The Martlet entered service with the UK military in 2021. Only 1,000 missiles were reportedly placed on order. This suggests that the number of missiles supplied to Ukraine is in the hundreds at best.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed in March that his country is planning to supply Starstreak man-portable air-defense systems to Ukraine. However, he didn’t say anything about supplying Martlet missiles back then.

The UK has been leading Western efforts to support the Kiev government side by side with the US. Britain believes that Western military support will eventually lead to the failure of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, which began on February 24.

Very recently, the UK promised to supply Ukraine with 120 armored vehicles as well as anti-ship missiles. This would be a serious escalation. Russia has already warned that it will target British weapons delivered to Ukraine.

Russia is in extreme copium mode. You can hear the men cheering in the video, but of course it shows no hit so it must be fake. Everything is fake to Russia except itself. That kind of intellectually weak denial mode is dangerous for your mental health

Ukraine has lost all of it tanks and armored vehicles and is now begging the west for resupplies, and are shooting rockets into the air with no proof of hitting anything, but it is Russia that’s on copium. Goblin logic right there. Best case scenario they just downed 1 Russian UAV, of which Ukraine has already lost 400+. WOW I am impressed.

Russia has lost 20% fighting capacity, one month more and it will have lost 50% . Thats the moment we do not need to talk anymore, they will have to beg. Everywhere in and around Russia tension will mount

Sunny

More goblin copium. Show me proof of those numbers. Oh you can’t? Well color me surprised.

Hey

You have proof, google Oryx, Russia lost around 2700 vehicles, 400 of which are tanks. Pro russian site lozt armor also confirmed the number of around 400 lost tank on the Russian side, there is strong photo evidence for this.

Edgar Zethar

Russia would replace all EOL ussr tanks with new Armata Tanks and also boost his military complex and war capabilities. Wake Up fool! While your ukranians are blooding yourselves in the land.

Johan

Why should I show you, you don’t even believe you are in deep shit when the shit is entering your nose because your Tyran say’s to ignore it and he is lying the moment his lips are moving.

diagnosis

You lost 100% of your brain. Both your damaged brain cells.

Hey

Actually, even I call what you said bullshit. Russia has lost around 2% to 5% of its overall fighting capacity, speaking only about ground forces and taking for granted that all that Oryx says is true. Russia entered Ukraine with around 20% of its capacity in the infantry, and 10% of its capacity in armored forces.

Edgar Zethar

Lol! Russia is renewing and refreshing his military with Ukraine you fool. Their army is getting real combat experience on every field of his military. The experience they are collecting with Azov would last at least 30 years fool.

Russia is actually the Stanford prison experimentin reel time on a national level Their judgment is disturbed at least severely distorted by the constant distortion and concealment of the truth. They live in a fictitious world with fictitious enemies. Compare it to the orcs in a Tolstoy story who are told that they are civilisation and the others are orcs and that they are allowed to murder, oppress, rape and commit crimes because it is their normal.

Ahaha funny comment. But realistically they did shoot down the drone, Oraln-10 is basically a DIY toy plane with a camera. You can shoot it down with a slingshot.

you’re right, but the men cheering are ucranian!!!!!

InnerCynic

Does the video title itself not say “Ukrainian soldiers”? So if anyone is cheering about a “miss” it would be them. Right?

Igor Chomchev

The MOST important thing when posting any video engaging a target is THE HIT, no so much with what but that the target was hit. We’ve seen it in Iraq, Yugoslavia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, etc. otherwise if no hit then is a failure. If they had time to work on filming the shooting then why not the most important which is the hit? Kind of if no hit then don’t bother posting anything.

Britain is going to supply anti-ship cruise missiles to Ukraine. Russia must first bomb to smithereens UK, Poland and Slovakia.

RealityOfWar

It will be an opportunity for Russia to assess these missiles capabilities and also the protection that can wrapped around them. It’s a challenge now for Russia to be able to develop capability to track weapons deliveries and set up, so that they can expedite their destruction.

Johan

And an opportunity for the Ukraine forces to lure the russians in and take them down. Apparently Russia can not stop the deliveries; a weakness, lack of intelligence, lack of good men and equipment? Any way their is a problem for the Russians, that means things are going good for aykraine.

RealityOfWar

Yes there are always opportunities, but there are issues for Ukraine around these 1. These weapons alone, just give you ISIS like capabilities, to run around in pick up trucks, nothing that can take and hold territory. 2.The volume shipped are to make headlines and not to effect change on the battlefield. 3. The envelopes of these weapons and countermeasures will be forthcoming 4. They offer nothing against air fuel weapons bulk incinerating and blasting Ukrainian troops and cruise and hypersonic weapons continually eroding infrastructure. Only Planes and tanks would make meaningful change – but these are far easier to track and remove in transit, unless NATO joins the conflict by allowing direct assaults from their territory – something they are wisely not allowing to happen.

Johan

Two remarks; they are already there and all other remarks are wishes not facts because untill now I saw only fleeing Russians and remote constructions but no substantial gain. I wishes where horses, beggars would ride as would Russians

Florian Geyer

Another soon to be reality will certainly be the arming of US/UK terrorist gangs with manpads via the ‘grey arms markets’ globally. I am quite pleased that I detest flying and have done since the 80’s, LOL.

Manpads for terrorists would destroy the mass market airlines and tourism for the Great Unwashed. Perhaps that’s what the Green fanatics in power want to see, LOL.

Johan

Would suit you big time, bringing the world on your level; having weapons and animals to fight for but the culture in a yogurt is more civilised as the whole Russian regime culture.

Hey

It is the weakness of Russian brains commanding over this war. Its a joke, those deliveries are not even protected and are very visible. Just like Russia could have taken power down, and leave Ukraine without internet and electricity first, then focus on striking the western border, while taking what is in on the east without even touching Kyiv. But no, rUSSIAN commanders are monkeys.

Pamfil Military Academy

So what, most of them will pay. Problem is not solved, because russian soldiers and ethnic peoples continue to die because of the EU support for the banderist criminals.

Ragnar

One could easily cope without those countries, for sure.

Pamfil Military Academy

Not must, but better. Sadly this is not going to happen. because that is meaning annihilation of life on earth. Should bomb every delivery when enter Ukraine by road or by rail with Kalibr.

Hey

Yea right. Just waiting for videos of Ukrainian infantry sinking Russian destroyers with some combination of an ATGM launcher and anti ship missile.

RealityOfWar

Yes this is an interesting weapon to see out there and for Russia to get experience on. Indeed the NATO countries are having to get stuff out of the cupboard that can now be assessed and discovered technically on the battlefield. As NATO goes more and more all in, they provide a training ground for Russia as Russia’s experience widens and gets acquainted to what they would expect, when taking on NATO in a theatre of war. NATO helps train Russia to take them on!

Deplorable Commissar

This works both ways you should know.

Sunny

Only to an extent, because Russia has not used much of it’s newer tech. The most modern tank they’ve used in Ukraine dates 3 generations back for example. They’re obviously not putting all cards on the table, presumably for the exact reason mentioned above.

Johan

S

RealityOfWar

Correct Russia has deliberately by and large not exposed high tech weapons to scrutiny other than when they are by physics unstoppable.

Hey

That is because Russia doesn’t have tanks other than old junk T72 variants. But with this incapable solders and army, even if they had tanks from 2050, they would still lose. This is just not how you place tanks, and how you move them in hostile environment.

Hey

It doesn’t, because no one can explain utter bullshit of tactics that RF groundforces are performing in Ukraine. NATO generals just don’t know what to make of it, even somali pirates have better tactics and logistics.

Pamfil Military Academy

Yes and no. Also, getting experience when your soldiers dies, isn’t a good way to see things happen.

It would be only fair because the west has now from all what Russia wanted to keep hidden, several pieces. They are already in reverse engineering.

Hey

The following is copied from an Indian Website comments section:

“The Ukrainian Threat must end now, not in the future, it must end now. If this requires use of Nuclear weapons…. Russia has been given permission by the Extra-terrestrials. Russian NUKES WILL BE ALLOWED TO HIT ITS TARGETS, American NUKES WILL MALFUNCTION. Nothing more needed.”

RealityOfWar

Nukes could be used by Russia, but as Air Fuel weapons can now give great blast effects, it would be better that Russia spent extensive effort developing and testing them more in Ukraine, in a live theatre. There are huge opportunities here in a real ‘laboratory’ to further air fuel weaponry by Russia.

Hey

Based on the report by Russian Ministry of Defense today, some Slovak newspapers claim SS-300 system(s)were destroyed at Starobogdanovka in Nikolaev oblast and Chuguyev in Kharkiv oblast yesterday. Two days earlier, one system of SS-300 had been delivered from Slovakia to Ukraine.

It is obvious. How the hell could they think to be able to deploy such monstrous things without the russians noticing them? These aren’t manpads, these are huge trucks with missile on board, transported on very long trains.

Are the slovaks retard as long as being a large american chicken farm?

Xsayarsa

Better ask them.

yep

“Are the slovaks retard as long as being a large american chicken farm?” Entire EU is. They followed Napoleon, they followed Hitler, now they unquestionably follow Joe Biden.

Russian ministry of defence isn’t credible any other source ? The fishing club of Narophorminsk or something equal trustworthy.

Hey

I saw independent pictures of that system being wanked today, it is likely true.

You never fucking see any hits…no smoke no fire no sound of a hit or an explosion no nothing in these Ukrainian videos…

Like there is zero proof of it hitting anything, why? Too lazy to pan up? Cmon put some effort in.

But then why bother since everyone in the west believes anything that comes out of Ukraine, next we’ll see a post about Elvis fighting with Ukraine in his saucer space ship, you just can’t see it because of the clouds or active super camo developed by a Ukrainian.

Make no mistake…this war was a provocation by NATO hoping that Russia would take the bait. The war is against NATO but they are too scared to go in themselves. They prefer to send mercenaries and weapons to support a regime that attacked their own citizens for 8 years. Then, they hide among citizens like the cowards that they are, to attack Russians.

Once again, the US and NATO are proven to be and by far, the number 1 terrorists.

I suggest that you get informed before coming at me with your US type bullshit! The constant buildup next to Russia’s borders plus the fact that they were thinking about adding Ukraine was more than enough. Now, the occidental constant lying media are making zelensky look like a god when he’s nothing more than a US stooge. Also, for 8 years Ukraine killed civilians just because they refused to bow down to neonazis.

People must remember that both the west and Russia have massive underground cities, where at least 500,0000 of the worlds ruling elite will survive a nuclear war.

NATO is proliferating and trafficking a lot of MANPADS into Ukraine, these sorts of rash political acts (look public we are doing something!) have a tendency to create blowback down the line, as these systems are very hard to reign back in once released out into the wild.

This would be a valid argument, if anyone in NATO was actually concerned with security. Sadly it’s only a terrorist organization.

Timmy Temperance

What is the plan for Donbass? I do think that it will be secured from Ukraine and eventually Ukraine will accept that it is no longer part of their country. But will it be part of Russia? Will the LPR and DPR be a seperate country? There are rumours, perhaps even conspiracy theories, that the assassination of former leaders of the Novorussian militias and even the leader Zakharchenko could not have happened without Russia’s consent. Is the leadership of Donbass still Communist? The Russian Government tolerates Communism, but to what extent would any future republic be able to make their own decisions, or would they be de facto puppets for the Russian Government? Would Southfront still be able to operate independently? Many questions.

Slobodan

If you have listened to the Putin’s speech at the beginning of the war, you would hear how much Putin hates the Communists.

Timmy Temperance

Interesting. Yet the Communist Party are one of the only permitted opposition parties in Russia. The Communists backed Donbass freedom and support the war. And the videos of Russian troops redeploying through Russia show many citizens near the Donbass border with the hammer and sickle flag. The plot thickens!

Timmy Temperance

Were I a betting man I would guess that Novorussia will be a protectorate of Russia, and may be allowed to pursue Communist policies because Communism could be perceived by the Russian Government as a perfect ideological buffer between Russia proper and the EU.

Pamfil Military Academy

So, that means russians MUST ‘deploy’ another strategy against NATO backed proxi army of banderistan. One coming into logic now is producing (or instant buying from China) low cost aerial targets decoys for the nazi ukrop vermin. So low cost, that for every 500 dollar UCAV’s fired by an ukrotard piece of shit, his family to pay to anglo-zionist banksters 100.000 dollars after Kiev will be no more capital of entire ukraine but only capital of the Third Reich fuhrer.

Boris Johnson is the biggest fool driven by Klaus Schwab’s WEF training and guidance. He is a moron that is prolonging the suffering of the Ukrainian people and he doesn’t care. These actions also heighten the possibility of a direct confrontation with Russia and hence, a nuclear war. He has to go. Whenever any world leader in the US and UK has a waning, declining popularity, they have to do something drastic, like enter into conflict, in order to stave off popularity decline and distract from real problems at home, such as inflation, rising fuel prices they can very little about, and food shortages. Most people in the UK are sheep when it comes to this. They have blindly voted the Tories and Labour into power year after year.
