German Gepard systems proved to be the best at shooting down drones

Dec 4, 2023

German Gepard anti-aircraft systems have shown the best results in shooting down Russian drones "in terms of cost-effectiveness".

Source: Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.

Direct speech: "Therefore, it is necessary to increase the number of means that will be rational for shooting down UAVs. Today, Gepard is the best in this regard - in terms of cost-effectiveness. But it also has a limited range - 4.5 kilometers to shoot down with ground-based projectiles. Therefore, we need more of them - both Gepards and their analogs."


More details: He also said that during the six months of attacks on the energy sector (from September 9 to March 12), Ukraine shot down 750 cruise missiles, while about 1,100 were launched.
