On August 7, the Russian military found wreckage of a new type of AGM-88 HARM anti-radar missile in Ukraine, which had not previously been used in combat operations. The missiles belonged to NATO, but the United States initially refused to acknowledge its involvement in supplying the missiles.
On July 28, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said that the missiles would be supplied from Europe, but no confirmation were provided. The AGM-88 HARM (High-speed Anti-Radar Missile) is designed to destroy radar stations. This missile was developed in 1982. Its length is 4.17 meters and the weight of the warhead is 66 kg. The range of missile launches is from 25 to 150 km. The missile has built-in special devices that track radio waves and aim at radio wave sources. On the back of the missile there is a marking “BSU-60 A/B”, the marking gives out the American production of missiles.
These missiles were not included in the official U.S. arms supply lists. The Pentagon did not initially comment on them either.
The HARM missiles had already been used in combat. Ukrainian-made aircraft were not designed to use HARM missiles, otherwise, they would have had to be heavily upgraded, as almost the entire Ukrainian air fleet consists of Soviet-era aircraft.
At the moment, there are several speculations that on August 9 the Russian troops were hit by American planes flown by Ukrainian pilots or that American fighter jets simply flew into Ukrainian airspace and carried out a series of strikes. U.S. authorities deny the incident, as they also deny supplying missiles.
Back in March, the U.S. began to form a strike group of F/A-18G Growler aircraft, which are designed to fight air defense. The planes have special signal jammers and create interference over a large radius. HARM missiles are compatible with these aircraft . The missiles were on the US balance sheet and they will be included in the new military aid package.
On August 8, the Pentagon has already confirmed previous shipments of missiles to Ukraine. The Pentagon announced that Washington had sent Kyiv anti-radar missiles that could be used by Ukrainian aircraft against Russian radars.
At a press conference, Deputy Defense Secretary Colin Kahl said that Washington had sent some missiles to Kyiv in the latest shipment, without specifying the type or number of missiles, which turned out to be HARM missiles. Kahl noted that the missiles could be fired from Ukrainian aircraft. This was the first official confirmation from the U.S. side of the transfer of AGM-88 HARM missiles to Ukraine. Kyiv did not publicly acknowledge receiving or using HARMs, but the wreckage of this particular American-made missile was found on Ukrainian territory. Kahl also announced a $1 billion military aid package for Ukraine, which is supposed to be mainly spent on ammunition.
Providing military supplies, training the Ukrainian military and sending US citizens fighting together with Ukrainian soldiers, the US and other Kiev’s Western allies are already at war with Russia.

US criminals are escalating the war on Russia as Colonel Mcgregor openly admits. Russia is too passive and the pain must be inflicted on Kiev Jew cabal.
Russian “red lines” turn into yellow crap line and Ukraine and NATO destroy Russian Crimean air base. 10 SU-24 destroyed and all fuel up in smoke. Big celebration in Kiev today.
S-24s is not very important for the Russian Aerospace Forces. You ‘celebrate’ a minor accident? You must be really in a desperate need for finally some good news, lol.
Russia pussy lose 70,000 dead and Zelensky is laughing.
70K Rus dead as oppose to 700K Ukrop dead? You’re running out of bodies, so it’s women and pensioners at the front line now, when Zelensky sends his mother to join the diminishing ranks, we can all agree that the war is truly lost.
No they are not the US have plenty of colonial bodies on the planet to dispose. The Ukrainians only exist to be cannonfodder in this war of the US against Russia. So dead Ukrainians are part of the US plan. The more dead Ukrainians the more will those who survive hate the russians and easier to use them as terrorists after russia has inevitabli taken all of Ukraine.
I have written none about that. It must be some YURI barking mad taking my name again and again.
I seldom has given any numbers at all. I several times has told its about equal but with more Ukras lost. Most civilian deads are Ukras too whatever they are Russians too or not.
Putting in the mother of Zelinsky into it is also not my turf. Its only true mothers by DNA fight hard to protect their chidren just as fathers.

I dont knoiw where my commet for this went. I see warfare as a big package with many tools.
I celebrate no minor accidents. I celebrate many good supplements by this as well as re supply.
US has been killing 7 million of innocent peoples in the Middle East and Donbas lol 😜
Thats not enough. They have an overwhelming population growth and forget to raise and feed many of them well.
Very good. Did You count them Yourself
Ukraine admits it had nothing to do with Crimea – just an unfortunate accident. No planes destroyed. None damaged. But please, continue masturbating over your pictures of Zelensky, just remember to wash your hand before you start typing again.
There we go again. Ukraine has never told they did. NO WAY.
Its a very good accidents making Russian torurist making know whats going on.
I never wrote anything about that.
You take some random source admitting this and that for a fact. You are sheep. Are You raised by eaten Pravda Vitamines?
Why is Kiev denying responsibility if they carried out this attack? it would be a big PR win
But they have never told that. You take some random straw from some random ant and make it to an official statement.
So shut up Yourself. You spread even Ukraine lies.
Whats the matter with You. Is t wishthinking from below the belt?
Even Russia says own selvdetonation.
Só much crying hahahahahahahahahahahahahahagahagahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Its so funny. Several people here wrote Pelosi was nothing at Taiwan. But she is number 3 in the President rank there.
Its not escalated. Its a part of a long time budget.
They just tell they are ready with this and that.
It’s time to hit the NATO decision center in Belgium.
NATO attack Moscow next and install Zelensky as new Czar.
Are all Scandinavians gay ?
Injury gagarin use my avatarname. His servicedog Ballalaika died.
Skandinavians has the same % of gays as the rest of the world. But they here are visible and included, so we dont see hem as any problen.
We has the same for wwomen. They all are just as educated as men and have normal jobs. We are in the same jobs almost all over.
Thats the way we make a stronger country. We work harder to include all. By that its easier to handle more important things.
Our dayli life home and our streets are not sexual activity. It semes it is in all macho state, where women mainly are second class too.
But up to 10% are sexual minorities or partly. The main part of them are homos of both gender.
We all are open and try to include all. Thats quite succesfull. We dont have all those matcho men in the streets shouting they are not gay trying to show it for free as well.
You’ve become a nation of perverted pigs , a nation of sickos, no morals.
There will be no “next ” for NATO after they are nuked. Ashes can not push buttons.
It seemes You already has been nuked.
You still run the illusion, that nuking fx Europe/Nato wont spread to the rest of the world and more or less nuke all.
Tjernoyl shoved it well. It was just one small incident. You still van find places, where You can eat fish, berries and like that.
More nukes will only be fine if You are below the surface fx being a worm or an ant.
Yuri wrote that.
Nukes will spread and cant be limited to fx the civilized part of Europe.
And in Strassburg – get every last one of them.
The time was on March 25…
Russia, take off the gloves and start shoting down the spy planes from yankees and Nato. Destroy all the roads and bridges and railways entering Ukraine and airfields. Use your satelites as they were build for !!! WW3 is declared from the nato and usa by deliveering arms and yankee users.
Russia is pussy and has no gloves.
Queer boy, talking crap !
I feel fine about naming like that. But how do You know. Where are the signs. Its fine to be queer here. They hardly are visible but defined as a normal part of human DNA.
They also did not make them themself and has had that as a wish. The mistake is Your kind most like harm those people. Yoiu are the criminals in this behaving like animals.
Here quer is accepted as normal. we include. That the definitions for a country. You are for segreation.
What yiu commen has been deleted. It might not even be written by me but injury
He’s a rump ranger , that figures.
As usual its expected by propganda, that we are sitting ducks always less clever then You.
Im sure the Russians do everything they can. It would make sense the Ukras destroyd all acces to it in Russia.
Find out where these Yank planes are coming from, and take them out in situation.
You mean “in situ”. I agree with you.
The Russians already know where they are coming from. Russia has escalation dominance and it’s turning up the heat slowly so that the frog don’t jump out before it’s boiled.
No its not. This frog fight back and are not accepting a slow worming up. Thre also was no slow warming up.
here was an invasion, which was deflected well. Next there has been fighting.
Its not as your frog in the bathtub.
No its not. More like from somebodies behind close to the brain for that there.
So primitive. I didnt know 3 years old could write.
Yes, 0,5 kt.
I never wrote anything of that. YURI did.
That how devils and Russoian lover read the bibles.
Those can be fired from ground. It one need a welder and a connection to add them to several other airplanes. That no advanced platform. The pathfinder is in the missile. The missile is very fast. The missile sometimes is a little unaccurate.
Thats the short version for it. You seemes to be more goat then sheep eating something like that with no hesitation.
Its time for small nukes, ici et la !
but dont small nukes lead to big nukes
The nuke fantast here has no idea about how those are. They are propagandized to, there will be a winner.
I also wonder what Russia will win in Ukriane. Its only revenge based on Stalin doctrines. The even by USSR constructed that malfunction themself.
Small nukes is rapid peace in Ukraine and happines in the world markets, except Wall Street.
Haha. One in each pocket to defend Yourself.
Yes, 0,5 kt, 500 tonnes TNT.
US is testing the waters, what they can do without consequences.
I wonder when Russia shoots down AWACS planes and satellites what will happen.
Thye dont dare to do it in the international zone. Thats where the awacs and semilars are.
Thre will be something or something.
They may get payback SOON
Oh yes. It might be what Russians can do, we can do too. Its a slider.
NATOs active role in this war will ensure it’s demise, Славься, Русь!
Dont forget UN and partly EU. Dont forget China as well as India also are neutral in this. Turks give them transporters right now and Baktiars.
Russian coffins leaving Ukraine will have wheel and driven by solar cells before that.
According to this they can be launched from a modified MIG29: https://avia-pro.net/news/raketa-agm-88-byla-zapushchena-istrebitelem-mig-29 Perhaps a defence would be to use a separate active radar antenna and connect to it by a long cable, so it could be some distance away from the vehicle? As it seems several BUK units can be remotely operated as a battery something like this could probably be done.
Of course they can. Thats not so advanced. Some welder might do it even its not specialized for it.
Yes. Its an easy one. In pricip its an automatic selffinder. Some welder might just make a lie dowm for it.
It find the radar beam or whatever it is by itself.
We, the US, didn’t use our planes. The Ukies are shooting the harm missles out of hand held stinger tubes. It takes two men to hold the launch tube with a harm on it.
I heard that. I thought it only was a possible way too.
Missile failed to hit their target ….
How do you tell when the Pentagon is lying? Its lips are moving. Would’t it be ironic if the Russians splashed an F/A 18 :-o
Taking out the F18 might be difficult. Almost all replaced with some newer one. As I recall it only USA and Australia has/had them.
Its not about lies from USA. You are told things here by Russia.
USA has a budget to fullfill. This is ready and will come or is already there.
There hardly is any F18s in the world anymore. Its old. Only USA and Australia had it. Thats what I recall. Its replaced en it has the same level of capasity as the also old F16.
sometimes they tell the truth–seldom
We bet on a previous modified MIG from Romania, flew by JUSA pilots, not Poland. Kogalniaceanu romanian airfield is very near the Donbass frontline and near the Black Sea. It can be under-radar fly above sea some 200 km and then suddenly access odessa region and fire to Kherson area and back. Military Academy confirm this hypothesis: 1. Prior 2020 romanian modified MIG 2. Kogalniceanu airfield. 3. JUSA experimented pilots. 4. Odessa zone of firing 5. Kherson area targeted. 6. CIAOp with the help of polish garbage managed to get the military transponder/codes of the russian airforce.
P.S. Same thing happened yesterday in Krimeea NovoFedorovka.
Yes, there are usefull jets for that too.
Nice reflexions compared to much of the crap by others.
Hard to admit things, which never is denied. Some translate has been using transplate.
i see a lot of panic mode in vatniks squad. Good to see but i suggest you to focus on cimea and yesterday stike on airbase. Today we can see on satalite pictures that 15 or more fighter jets has been destroyed and i guees its not last strike on crimea :D crimea is ukraine !!!! hooah
You should give a link for that. I have seen a lot of pictures and videos but not in that kind of details.
We admit it because we are not afraid of telling the truth. We are not like “our soldiers are legally on vacation in Crimea”. We call a spade for a spade.
nobody believe amerikan matter “the problem w ameriakns is not Orwellian it is huxleyan: amerikans love their oppression”. Neil Postman “in amerika the citizen has been transformed into a client the worker into a consumer”. Christopher Lasch “amerikans love machines more than people”. Le Corbusier “only in amerika do people act like machines are treated like machines and only in USA are machine metaphors used to describe human behavior”. Geoffrey Gorer “the amerikan world view is nihilism with a happy ending”. Alan Bloom
This situation isn’t making a lot of sense. From what I’m hearing, there isn’t a lot of fixed wing strike missions or close air support, so there isn’t much need for anti-radiation missiles. Weasels normally go in to run interference for other missions, they don’t go catting about looking for a radar to mess up. Maybe the Ukies are trying to gain some air superiority so they can do some close air for ground troops, but isolated HARM use just looks like the US trying to find out what S-300s and S-400s look like. Two fighters sizing each other up. Too expensive and heavy to go slinging them for no reason. Definitely a HARM though. Part of the debris collection is the remains of a wing.
