JUST IN: Ukrainian forces shoot down three Russian Su-34 fighter jets on southern front
Ukrainian defenders shot down three Russian Su-34 fighter-bombers in the south of Ukraine on Dec. 22, the commander of the Air Force Mykola Oleshchuk has reported.

The aircraft were destroyed at around noon. Oleshchuk called it a response to a nighttime "message" from the Russian military written on one of its downed kamikaze drones.

"They wrote on it: ‘Die, b**ches’," Oleshchuk said.

"Great idea! Here is our answer to you! Eternal flight, ‘brothers’!" Oleshchuk wrote.

Su-34 aircraft are carriers of guided bombs and X-59 missiles, which Russians are using to attack Kherson Oblast and other regions of Ukraine.

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia has lost 324 warplanes and helicopters.

Russia is thought to have had 155 Su-34s before it launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine. More than 20 of them were reported shot down before today’s losses.

Re: JUST IN: Ukrainian forces shoot down three Russian Su-34 fighter jets on southern front
The information regarding the 3 destroyed Russian Su-34 is still fluid and we still need some more solid facts, but the evidence already at hand and the fuming in Pro-Russian social networks we can be sure that it is basically genuine.

It is highly likely that Ukraine deployed the latest MIM-104 Patriot battery in the south, likely the latest Patriot battery from Germany. The PAC-2 variant has a range of at least 160 km (probably more). This considerably extended the zone in which the Ukrainian air defense was able to destroy enemy planes. I marked it in orange on my map but it is a relatively conservative estimation and considers that the battery is not deployed too close to the current frontline. You can easily extend that area and strike even far deeper.

I speculate that once the 3 Russian fighter planes were in the killzone, the Patriot system turned on, targeted the enemy planes and then fired its missiles. This is common practise for all missile-based air defense assets. The missiles travel with the speed of Mach 4 and reached their targets within 1-2 mins which is virtually impossible for the Russian planes to counter or to lose altitude. Yet, the level of planning and coordination is extremely difficult. Even with a excellent weapon system such as MIM-104 Patriot system, you cannot take this for granted. Even small errors could cause failure in this undertaking or even threaten the own survival of the air defense system. The window of success is short and dangerous. But just like in Bryansk they succeeded. The Ukrainian air defense system once again showed us how capable they are. A tribute to their never-ending ingenuity.

For the Russian war effort this is extremely bad news. The Russian swarms of drones and missiles in this winter are getting effectively repelled so far. Ukraine finally allows to use its best air defense system even for offensive operations. Krynky is only an example but a good one. Despite the Ukrainian forces only having around 300-500 men in Krynky and Russians on the other side around 7 brigades, which should actually be enough to repel the small Ukrainian detachment in Krynky alone, it was mainly the Russian air force which countered the small Ukrainian unit. The Russian ground forces were pummeled by artillery and drones. It was only the Russian planes which weren't countered, yet. This has obviously changed and it will be another painful thorn in Russia's side. This also comes only after weeks when the Russian Su-24M was shot down over the Black Sea near Snake Island. The message is clear: the south is now officially an hot area for the Russian air force.

Even though we shouldn't get too much carried away around these events, it nevertheless shows us that even with a limited extension of supplies Ukrainian forces can inflict decisive losses on the Russian war machinery.

The Su-34 Fullback is Russia’s most advanced strike fighter. Entered in active service with the Russian Aerospace Forces in 2014, the Fullback is a two-seat strike fighter with a maximum range of 4,000 km, a payload of up to 12,000 kg on 12 hardpoints, including stand-off munitions, and the ability to carry R-77 and and R-73 missiles, a 30 mm

The aircraft have been particularly active in southern Ukraine, especially in the Kherson area, and, if confirmed, the downing of the three Su-34s would represent a significant blow for the Russian forces as well as an important success for the Ukrainian anti-aircraft defenses in the region.

As for the air defense system used to intercept the Su-34s, it’s too early to say, although Patriot or SAMP/T batteries (delivered beginning in April-May 2023) may have been activated in southern Ukraine too and used in some sort of SAM bait for the three Russian strike aircraft. The Patriot made the news earlier this year when a Kinzhal air launched hypersonic missile launched by a Russian MiG-31K was intercepted, during an overnight attack on May 4, 2023, in the Kyiv region, by an MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile system, in the first recorded interception by the Ukrainian military since the systems had been delivered.

So Ukraine has several batteries of Patriots which are very good at shooting down planes.

Russia is flying sorties over Ukraine.

Do you think it’s inconceivable that they took down some SU-34s with Patriots?

Would you willingly walk into a meat grinder?

Europe is shit...but better than killing field shit...

So the cycle continues...
