Franco-German Anti-Tank Missile System Spotted For First Time In Ukraine (Video)

File image.

The Franco-German MILAN anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) system has been spotted for the first time ever with Ukrainian government forces.

On April 13, the CNN aired a report showing a group of US mercenaries and Ukrainian troops training on the anti-tank system in an unspecified part of Ukraine.

The MILAN system, which first entered service in 1972, utilizes a semi-automatic command to line of sight (SACLOS) guidance system. The system’s original missile had a range of up to 2,000 meters only.

The MILAN 2 variant, which entered service with the French, German and British armies in 1984, is armed with an improved HEAT [high-explosive anti-tank] warhead. The MILAN 3 entered service with the French army in 1995 and features a new-generation localizer that makes the system more difficult to jam electronically.

The system’s range was improved in a later version, the MILAN ER, which can engage targets as far as 3,000 meters away.


In the early days of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, France provided Ukrainian government forces with a “few dozen” MILAN systems from the stocks of the French army. France was not however the only one to provide MILAN missiles to Ukraine. Italy officially delivered a shipment of an improved version of the system, known as the MILAN 2T, to Ukraine early on in the war.

The effectiveness of the MILAN system remains limited by its short range and guidance system, which is vulnerability to infrared jammers like the Russian Shtora system.

NATO states have been pumping weapons from their old stockpiles into Ukraine on the hope of foiling the Russian special military operation. These attempts will only prolong the war, worsen the humanitarian situation in Ukraine and make a political solution more difficult.

They will also get Panzerfaust 60 soon.

You have to start with something.

The first danish aviator making an own airplane was flying in circles round and round by a rope. Even so it was pictures in the newspapers, hip hips and flags.

Joe

I heard the US was going to send some Union field cannons from the Civil War

Clyde

No doubt, they will be ransacking Revolutionary War monuments soon. The British are cutting down Yew trees right now to construct longbows for their Ukrainian friends.

jens holm

They are gamers from the Long Bow Digital Art company.

Bubbaorwell

Well Germany well be going back to wood heat this next winter.

datrum

Poland, Germans, Czechs and others are producing great howitzers. There are already plans to sell them to Ukraine. They just need to increase production. In my opinion it is no brainer to send all the old crap to Ukraine ASAP. Like those Czech T72s. They are still very effective aganist softer targets and Russian tanks can be taken with Javelins.

Clyde

Unless the artillery is self-propelled, it only works against peasant goat-herds. Canada dumped their M109s because they only forsaw bombarding defenceless members of resistance groups with no capacity for counter-battery operations. I would love to know what the NATO pimps intend to accept as payment from the failed Ukrainian CIA operation.

Bubbaorwell

Hey that kind of sounds like the US aircraft carriers. Realllly good against unarmed nations otherwise the world’s most juicy military target. Low hanging fruit for the Russian hypers.

Bubbaorwell

Uhh yeah how do those howitzers hold up to the Russian Frogger?

jens holm

There is a very big one. Its for Putin. Biden will be there: You got fired :)

Bubbaorwell

Nonononono… That’s like why we don’t go back to the moon, we lost the technology… They can’t make ammo for those old guns… uh, Okay I get it.

jens holm

Haha. They meet T72s and T90s. The T90 is a T72 repair.

Clyde

Derp?

T90 has a completely different chassis. Idiotic Israeli troll, pretending to be Danish.

NATO is in all of the nations near to Russia, ready to pounce. HOW FAR is NATO going to go with this war against Russia in Ukraine? They do not want this war to spread outside of Russia and Ukraine. They do not want the action to move outside of Russia and into the territory of the NATO nations. NATO is using Ukraine as the battleground for what is primarily THEIR war against Russia. NATO has not invaded and bombed Russia up in Russia, not YET, not much. NATO is going to have its nuclear WWIII, if RUSSIA is winning. They are determined not to allow Russia to win or to have peace. The Red dragon, the Whore of Babylon of the financial systems and the black beasts of NATO and the mercenaries are enemies of ALL of humanity. The FINANCIAL systems need to CRASH in the West and the new ones set up to replace them need to be CRASHED. The humans and the institutions that make up the whore of Babylon and serve and worship her, they need to be crashed. This war is NEVER ending until it is final. Russia wants to JUST sort out Ukraine but the entirety of NATO and NATO nations are preventing it. China, African nations, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan HELP Russia to kick out the NATO black beasts. And EU STOP SUPPORTING NATO, LEAVE.

Yes, and the global elite satanists are behind it all.

datrum

All NATO wants is to bleed Russia. Strip them off all their weapons. There are millions of Ukrainians ready to die. All NATO needs is keep sending those Javelins for several years and Russia will be severely depleated. After all Russia was doing the same to Americans when they attacked countries like Vietnam, Korea and Iraq.

Clyde

Where is your evidence of millions of Ukrainians ready to die? The population was against NATO membership prior to the 2014 CIA coup in Kiev. Why would they want to die in a failed program to insert the country into NATO at this point?

DSB88

Have you thought about the opposite effect for US and NATO? They are also depleting their weapons. Most will be destroyed or captured by Russians.

Bubbaorwell

Nuclear war is easy for Russia to stop. All they have to do is clearly list the targets of their nuclear attacks. Start with tel Aviv, the city of London, New York City and progressively go down from there. If you hit the khazarians where they live, literally, they lose their appetite for the destruction of the goyim.

Haha. First you must get through few millions of ukrainians with Javelins. Good luck with that pal.

Clyde

They drove right to the gates of the capital of the failed Ukrainian CIA project and waited a month for Krusty the Klown of Kiev to choose the Ukrainian people over the US hybrid war againast Russia. Krusty chose the latter, and the Russians drove away.

Javelins are proven junk !

Just to clarify position of typical NATO citizen: 1. We remember all too well how Russia keeps attacking all their neighbors. 2. Weak Russia is good for neighbors. 3. It is great when someone else can fight instead of you (in this case Ukraine) 4. Spending money for arms is far better than spending your own life. 5. The longer was goes the weaker is Russia. 6. No brainer to send as much weapon to Ukraine. 7. Ukraine has millions of soldiers, all they need is arms and they will keep fighting on for decades if needs be. So far there is a great progress at Ukraine. 8. We know that Russians will support Putin no matter what. So they must be crushed and stripped of all their wealth and arms otherwise they will come after you.

You speak about the NATO COVIDidiots sheep ? In this case you’re right.

Clyde

There is no such thing as a “typical NATO citizen”. Only the most ignorant and obtuse Ukrotard could believe such a thing. You want to say that a Romanian or Turk has anything in common with an American? Get a grip. 1. NATO has attacked Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. 2. Ukraine does not have millions of soldiers. The people of the Ukraine do not want to die in the US hybrid war against Russia. 3. NATO is really a US puppet and the US is collapsing. They will not be able to afford their 800-base Petro-dollar extortion racket as the dollar’s exchange value is eliminated. 4. You’re an idiot.

Libertein

Exactly

Gneaus stapo

At the Moment russia is the country having trouble repaying/ refinancimng its debts…not the USA or EU.

Stealing 500 airplanes, letting the chinese road and belt Initiative end at belarussian border…is all not helping

“1. NATO has attacked Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya”.

? Relevant in which way? + Not true for iraq or libya anyway…no offical Nato Missions

Gneaus stapo

“2. Ukraine does not have millions of soldiers. The people of the Ukraine do not want to die in the US hybrid war against Russia.”

The Ukrainian slavic brothers/ sisters are fleeing by the Millions westward.. telling truth about beloving care of putin’s mother russia.

Russians have an up-to-date aprox 5.000 killed. Ukrop mesmerized idiots who didn’t learned anything from neighbor nations ruled by US/NATO armed bandits of the world, unlike for example the Moldavians who were in touch of whole events in the mother-nation Romania and knows well how the US globalist zionist horseshit destroyed a ZERO national DEBT country in 32 years, will stay after some years in the future in the middle of the road and slap themselves seeing what morons they were by letting those robbers to destroy theirs country. BTW, ukrop fools have aprox.16.000 killed.

They will never win this way. We have already defeated the suckers of the West (by the way, all terrorists, from Afghanistan to Syria and Iraq) destroyed them when they were given advanced weapons, and here they give trash, of course trash will not help. In truth, nothing will help.

Yeah, good call about the mercs! Although NATO says they not at war with Russia, almost all members did send soldiers of their elite forces to “train” the Ukronazi’s! I know a few of them who are on a “secret mission” for a few month’s now, but their paycheck is not coming from the army!? I bet they are in hell now! They were used to fighting some bad organized farmers, mostly armed with cheap guns and old RPG’s, with the highest risk of hitting an overnight placed IED. Well, i guess they are in for a treat now! Fighting against the worlds strongest army, together with some murderous racist lunatic’s! I am curious if some of them will make it back home. But i really doubt that! If they don’t, i won’t shed a tear. Because the sanctions in the EU will bring nothing but trouble to EU states! And these guys are the best trained professionals, who would also be used against their own countrymen in the EU. I hope Russia wins this war, the sooner the better! And NATO will disband, the sooner the better! And hang those transgen globalist to build back better!

I read that on 11-4 Russian losses were 3.398 against 32.334 Ukronazi’s.

Why Russia has attacked even without T-90 or T-93? Forgive me but I don’t give a dam for almost all the designations. And where are the Armata Tanks, and so on? It´s curious, no?

Russia can land a further 2000 armoured vehicles, newer ones. To mount a defence against tanks around ATGM a force will need 10 to 1, this is if Russia reinforces with 500 tanks they will need 5000 of those toys, this is a full articulated brigade size support of trained teams + infantry. Do they have this? Will NATO also provide the troops?

The public was lead to believe those ATGMs are like a silver bullet, they are ignorant about how real combat takes place

Russia needs to cut back Germany’s gas supply 5% for every German weapon found in Ukraine. You would see German special forces immediately in Ukraine taking those weapons back.

These weapons are useless, and only good for very limited, local engagements. The UAF doesn’t even have the capacity to launch large counter assault operations. And any U.S. retired military that goes there is in for a rude awakening. Fools errand to go there.
