Yes, we downed the ‘unique’ Kinzhal missile!

Background: The Defense Express media outlet, after analysing photos of the missile wreckage, suggested that a hypersonic Kh-47 Kinzhal missile had been successfully shot down over Kyiv for the first time in the early hours of 4 May.
Yurii Ihnat, spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, said that Ukraine’s air defence did not shoot down a Russian ballistic missile in the skies over Kyiv on 4 May.
USA 1 – Orcs 0 Looks like the orcs will have to invent another “invincible” weapon, the last one wasn’t so invincible after all.
Wow. That’s impressive
The Patriot is still awesome!
Update: The “invincible” missile was shot down by a Patriot PAC-3, which was developed in the 1990s. How fucking embarrassing!
You mean the Kremlin lied? Once again I guess his 3D models didn’t pan out and now 30 years later the Moskali are STILL stuck using Soviet stuff.
They have been very silent about this incident in the Kremlin. I wonder why? 🤣
