Details: At night, the Russians fired at Ukraine:
- six Kinzhal aerial ballistic missiles;
- nine Kalibr cruise missiles;
- three ballistic/anti-aircraft missiles (type to be specified);
- six Iranian-made Shahed-136/131 attack UAVs;
- three Orlan and SuperCam UAVs.
According to Forbes, a Kalibr cruise missile costs US$6.5 million, bringing the total cost of the missiles fired at night to US$58.5 million.
A Kh-47 Kinzhal hypersonic missile can cost US$10 million and above, with the total cost of six launches being US$60 million.
Iranian-made Shahed-136/131 attack drones, according to information from open sources, cost from US$20,000 to US$50,000 per unit. In total, six such UAVs cost US$280,000.
According to the General Staff, a Russian Orlan-10 drone costs US$100,000. There is no data on the price of a SuperCam drone in open sources, so we can assume that it is close to the price of the Orlan-10 UAV. Thus, three drones cost US$300,000.
I still hate it that Iran wasn’t punished severely for sending these drones.
I hear you, Bert! It’s a disgusting shame!
The cockroaches haven’t grasped the fact that they will never subdue the Ukrainian people with these terrorist attacks. They are only cementing their willpower to resist.
