Sophistication of the Patriot Missile, an Air Defense System that the US will Send to Ukraine to fight Russia

 The Patriot missile mechanism has long been the favorite defensive weapon of the United States and its allies as a shield to dismiss incoming missiles.

Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific region are already using this mechanism to keep the opportunity for an onslaught from Iran, Somalia, and North Korea.

Until then, Russia also responded when information was spread if the US had agreed to send Patriot missile batteries to Ukraine.

Al Jazeera conveyed on Thursday (12/15/2022), this defense is a military weapon that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told him to take advantage of his country's air defense.

U.S. officials have confirmed the deal to grant the Patriot mechanism, and legitimate information will be made public.

But some experts warn that the effectiveness of the mechanism is limited, and that is unlikely to be a fixture in the war.

The Patriot is a surface-to-air guided missile mechanism that was first issued in the 1980s and can target aircraft, cruise missiles, and short-range ballistic missiles.

Each Patriot battery is divided into a truck-mounted smuggling mechanism with 8 launchers that can each load up to four missile interceptors, ground radar, control station, and generator.

The Army explained it currently has 16 failed Patriots.

A 2018 International Institute for Tactics study found that it ran 50 batteries, which had more than 1,200 missile interceptors.

U.S. batteries are regularly used around the world and are operated or purchased by the Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Taiwan, Greece, Spain, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Romania, Sweden, Poland, and Bahrain.

"The Patriot Mechanism is the most operationalized and reliable and provable air missile defense mechanism out there, and the theater's ballistic missile defense force could help keep Ukraine from Iranian-supplied ballistic missiles," said Tom Karako, director of the Missile Defense Project at the Center for Vital and International Studies.

One official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because Ukraine's approval had not been made public, wrote that one Patriot battery had a long firing range, but could only cover a limited area.

For example, the Patriots could efficiently create the protection of a small military base, but could not fully create the protection of a big city like Kyiv.

The mechanism can only give scope to parts of the city.

Patriots are often issued as failures, which include four batteries.

But, this can't happen with Ukraine, which some bigwigs say will receive one.

The Patriot had an increasingly powerful radar that was better at comparing targets than the Soviet-era S-300 mechanism used by Ukraine, but had limitations.

But the Patriots' power to target several ballistic missiles and aircraft has the potential to create Kyiv protection if Russian President Vladimir Putin continues his persistent threat to use tactical nuclear devices.

If the air strike sent is a gravity bomb through a war aircraft, the mechanism can target the sending aircraft.

However, if what is issued is a cruise ballistic missile or short to medium range, the patriot mechanism is likely to be able to intercept the missile immediately.

Ukraine Successfully Shoots 13 Russian Drones

The Ukrainian military explained that it had shot down 13 Iranian-made drones over Kyiv and surrounding areas, Wednesday (12/14/2022).

Quoted, this success was achieved after Russia carried out a drone strike that led to electrical facilities for several weeks.

According to officials on the spot, no casualties or injuries were reported, although some buildings were damaged.

As stated by The Guardian, Wednesday (12/14/2022), a series of explosions hit the Ukrainian capital.

Around 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, residents in central Kyiv published a video in which the sound of an unmanned plane flying overhead was heard, followed by an explosion.

The public published images of puffs of smoke on the horizon of the capital.

Kyiv's city administration explained two of its administrative buildings had been destroyed by the fall of some unmanned aircraft wreckage.

A Kyiv security service spokesman, Svitlana Vodolaga, explained to Suspline Ukrainian information that there were no casualties.

The mayor of the city, Vitali Klitschko, wrote in a post on Telegram if there was an explosion in the central area of the capital, Shevchenkivskyi, home to many agencies and government buildings.

The air strike warning was withdrawn three hours after it began.

All five buildings were said to be destroyed, underscoring Kyiv's vulnerability to Russian air strikes and even with air defenses.

Footage from 1 building that was attacked by the onslaught showed the white tail of the drone visible in the rubble.

"Russia continues energy intimidation. But we are getting stronger every day," kyiv's regional head, Oleksiy Kuleba, noted on Telegram.

Ukrainian network operators explained the energy facilities did not suffer any damage in Wednesday's onslaught, and commended Ukraine's air defenses for their duties.

Ukraine has received a contemporary air defense mechanism from the west, counting from the US.

Wednesday morning's onslaught came as the U.S. weighed in on supplying Ukraine with a great Patriot air defense mechanism.

Although the U.S. initially denied supplying Ukraine with the mechanism while Poland's recent efforts to get Germany to deploy Patriot batteries to the country were denied by Berlin.

However, some U.S. officials explained that the missiles could have been delivered in the days following Russia's repeated series of attacks on several Ukrainian cities.

Patriot, which is about to become the most advanced surface-to-air missile mechanism by which U.S. allies around the world are racing to acquire it.

For your information, The onslaught of Russian drones and missiles since October has caused chronic damage to Ukraine's civilian energy and electricity infrastructure during the winter months.

Unicef, the UN children's body, explained that the 2-month air crash has left nearly 7 million children without continuous access to electricity, heating and water.
