MALD + Storm Shadow
It's fucking over Zisters.
Storm Shadow in Ukraine
It has been like 2 days and they are already in use
I'M SORRY STORM SHADOW
inb4 some vatnik cries about HATO wunderwaffen not doing anything
So confirmed three strikes.
1. Vehicle depo
2. Oil depo
3. Barracks(pic related)
Something tells me 20 Storm Shadows will be enough to buck break Russia
>Something tells me 20 Storm Shadows will be enough to buck break Russia
Judging by all the kvetching the three were more than enough.
>two tochkas and a decoy becomes three storm shadows
western transmuters will pay
First black magic and now alchemy? Where will they stop?!
Initial UK order in the 90s was around 1000. No idea how much they have now or how many ukraine were sent
They got a few high-hundreds, somewhere between 600-800. I recall hearing that the Bongs intend on replacing Storm Shadow by 2030 or so, so I wouldn't be surprised if they give Ukraine a non-insignificant amount over time.
It's about 800/900, UK has been using Storm shadow in theatres like middle East.
How many did the UK give them?
We do not know, but hopefully a lot
We have no idea, but the UK alone have hundreds and they are still able to be produced.
I heard they're thinking to replace it with something new and willing to basically sink them.
Also, electronical devices production plant.
But I don't know what they produce there now if anything.
Scavenging semiconductors out of washing machines is my guess...
Before 2014 there were rather big community of electoengineers in the city. Moreover there were some productions for export to Asia.
But as far as I know almost everyone left during 2014-2015 shitshow. And all the production plants were stolen by Russian, so they should be empty, or at least there is zero production power now.
So your post can be an unironical truth.
sure reeks of curry in here
>some scraps from the factory floor and a freshly machined piece of steel stamped with STORM SHADOW USE ONLY
does this gay have a brain?
You certainly dont
Hey ur the 1 who c’s conspiracy everywhere when his ideology shits it’s bed
whatever they're paying you it's too much
Lol well I’ll have them give me your location, your next you know too much
We’er coming to get you
We’re coming to get you.
We’er coming to get you..
>it's instead of its
SIR DO NOT REDEEM THE INTENTIONAL SHIT SPELLING
holy shit learn english you fairy
You can’t actually be that stupid
>STORM SHADOW USE ONLY
Yeah I don’t buy it
>Storm shadow use only
Where are the Sims 3 copies?
oh fuck i triggered the cringe bot, aka vajra singh salary $0.01/post
No I’m just mocking your schizophrenic episode, er excuse me, I’m “silencing all opposing opinions”
Brown! BROWN NO U SIR
Nonsense anon, Russia can afford to pay a bot 1000 rubels per post
A thousand rubles? That's like a whole dollar!
>storm shadow use only
so wait, more than likely it was SS strike but those retards needed 110% "proof" for vatnik viewers what it was evil anglo-saxon missile so they just made fake fragment of it with fake inscription?
who knows, it looks a bit contrived to me as a retard but maybe the parts do have that engraving
but this part makes no sense, it has a batch number and date imprinted onto it, so why would they need to state its for 'storm shadow use only' when the plate was printed specifically for this missile
That does look a bit like a pylon attachment point/adapter with the hole on top. Then it makes sense to stamp "storm shadow only" if the adapter is ukie Su-24 on one end and NATO mil-std 1533 on the other end for the Storm Shadow. That way it could be like "hey don't sling HARMs/JDAM off this adapter we only programmed it for Storm Shadow".
That makes perfect sense remembering the many people who handle such parts. Weapons load crews especially need to be sure.
The French and Bong ones are very slightly different right
Might just be an attempt at dissuading one using the others parts by accident during manufacturing.
>so why would they need to state its for 'storm shadow use only' when the plate was printed specifically for this missile
because the guy bolting it onto the plane isn't going to look up the batch number. If it's being engraved, might as well add some idiot proofing.
The NSN comes back as UK origin multipurpose guided missile structural component. It’s likely used in more than one type of missile. Other than that idk
>guys the english are so retarded they printed 'storm shadow use only' onto a part made for this specific storm shadow that has all the information on it already and cant be transfered to another missile because it has a unique code for this missile
NATO thinkpad vibes. But why bother? It's not like the UK is trying to hide they sent Storm Chadow?
Just fuck off
i think they just want to keep stoking the fear and paranoia. "we got hit with a couple of tochkas" doesn't suit any agenda it's just embarrassing. so instead remind everyone that HATO is coming for them and if they lose non descript bad things will happen at the hands of the perfidious anglo
why use the ADM-160 MALD if you are going to use a balistic missile?
the decoys are only uselful to assorb fire if they travel at the same speed and altitude as the target they are meant to protect, balistic missiles would take over air breathing targets in ground to air engagements
I don't have a narrative to put in their heads I just have the fact that storm shadows don't leave high altitude contrails like whatever did the attack did. I don't consider "well they SHOULD have done X" to be a coherent counterargument and this hilariously bad fake makes me doubt it even more
Nah they have funnier uses you make them look like the enemies aircraft when you do standoff strikes to they think its returning aircraft.
They assume its a friendly patrol returning letting it through then in the future get paranoid and more likey to shoot at returning friendlies.
Well, since it's funny to fuel minority opinions, consider this - a lot of witnesses reported a sound like the approach of an aircraft and a whistles like the descent of an unpowered bomb. So maybe it wasn't Storm Shadow, it was some MALDs covering for Mig-s carrying JDAMs
Storm Shadow is a turbojet. You can hear it coming. (Though not for long.)
MALD is also powered by a turbojet, we have no way of knowing which was heard.
I don't think there's been any details about which variants got sent, we'll only be able to speculate based on what targets they hit.
My point was they go
>OMG LOOK IT SAYS STORMSHADOW ON THE MISSILE ITSELF
If that wasn't even the variant sent it'd expose it lmao.
>if they are going to use a ballistic missile
Wouldn't the decoy will still serve to saturate/distract air defense, especially if it's spoofing a much larger aircraft?
So what fun and exciting stuff can they do with this combo that HIMARS couldn't?
Is this a suitable substitute for ATACMS if the Ukes aren't getting those?
pretty much, because burgers for some reason don't want to give ATACMS.
>So what fun and exciting stuff can they do with this combo that HIMARS couldn't?
HIMARS can't destroy high-rise buildings, warhead too small to penetrate enough. Russian officers recommended to turn such building in occupied territory into command posts
larger warhead and longer range than rockets ukrainians got for himars
Oliver Fletcher from Eastend Raion here and I agree, the UK government must immediately cease supporting the ukraine nazis and continue its progress of de-associating with EU and quit the NATO as well.
suck it up sally, nobody's going to use any.
>It has been like 2 days and they are already in use
>MALD + Storm Shadow
I personally believe we are about to see ships sinking in Crimea.
That would be a bad use for them. The ships that they have are too scared to leave port anyway. Better to let them sit there and take the bridge instead
What do you think sends the Kalibrs at ukraine almost every night?? those ships
it will be giant radioactive tsunami instead of nuclear fire, concerned john from oxfordshire oblast
But you are a brown tankie filth there illegally to begin with. Even Russia won't let you in on a cocksucking visa
I hope we give them our entire inventory of them, around 1000+.
It would be possible, we could ask France to split their stock with us (at which point they would make ludicrous terms and probably want them paid for in full + tip) until we have replaced the ones donated
Also I heard Boris Johnson has been firing them from a twin seat Eurofighter piloted by Ghost of Keev
>FEAR THE STORM SHADOW, RUSSIA
>PLEASE FEAR IT
Never going to happen. This is what happens when you naming device of a weapon is ridiculous.
Only vatniks think fearing a weapon is what makes it work.
You don't need to fear any weapon for it to work. Whether or not puccia fears the storm shadow it will still blow up targets.
Also if they don't fear the weapon they drink on the job and fail to intercept. If they fear the weapon they get twitchy and down their own aircraft.

CRUISE MISSILE MY ANUS
I bet that novichok caper's not so funny anymore
The British are buying excellent insurance for the future. Absolutely nobody is going to dare touch anyone on British sovereign territory, because the consequences of British seethe are far-reaching and dire. You sow the Novichok, you reap the whirlwind.
Revenge really is a dish best served cold.
>Every action has a reaction. And a pikey reaction is a hell of a fucking thing.
Argies crossed the bong FAFO line forty years ago too, and they got theirs. Now it's Russia's turn.
Yeah I’m also surprised the Dutch have been such cuckolds this entire time. They lost like 100 people in that Malaysia airplane
Didn't they send like all their modern artillery or something.
The Dutch and Bongs tend to be, a least politically really close.
Dutch had to be talked down from article 5. They’ve sent their entire armored force and are throwing money at purchasing ammunition and supplies for Ukraine along with restoring as many Belgian weapons and vehicles they can
Please send more of them UK, please I'm begging you, this seethe is the funniest shit ever
STFU labour fag, maybe you should go back to complaining about how the evil tories will take away the NHS whilst you sit on the dole
I am Winston Goodhill, from London Oblast. I say no more weapons for Ukraine! If we anger the great Russian bear one more time we will be wiped out by nuclear tsunami! I plead to premiere Sunak, no more weapons to the NATO dog zzelenski!!
He keeps the explosives in his cloaca
coming through chaps.
Unironically blasting Rule Britannia in my earholes while browsing PrepHole.
Wow, looks like the real damage this caused wasn't even the strike itself. Hope those F-I-V-E different shoot downs today weren't because of "secret Storm Shadows" 50 km within Russia.
I, Nigel Nigelson, from Oxfordingshire Oblast 100% agree. Chief Curry merchant is inviting the bear to dinner and the gift he will bring is nuclear hellfire! We must stop now!!!
Was it even Storm Shadows they sent? I thought they sent the Saudi variant? Remember, the missile is just a variant of a French missile they worked on together and there is like 4 further variants after that.
Fuck off. Everyone who didn't live through most of the early Cold War as an adult can't really have internalized the rules. They're unwritten, they preserve strategic ambiguity, and they are real.
Browns, Serbs and other intermediate species cannot even conceive of these ways. They should stay in their unpaved feces-paved lanes while preparing their gullets for the semen of their new Chinese masters.
good ol windy darky as we used to call her
i still call brazillians that.
The ol' black blowie.
You act as if Russia didn't fantasised or threaten to nuke the UK every month or so before 2022. Anything short of actually giving the Ukrainians a Trident ICBM is not escalatory by comparison
I kinda buy the storm shadow use only. Is it that different from front toward enemy or remove before flight? Western equipment is made to be idiot proof.
Andrew Capp of Teeside Oblast here. Sounds like you could use an upgrade in the bollocks department yerself, marra.
Look up the Moscow Criterion. Britain is one of the few countries that Russia cannot realistically threaten in any way and both of them know it, hence their impotent seething and revenge fantasies.
>160 years later and they're still seething over a war the bongs barely even remember happened
Winstanleigh Greville-Smythe of Happisburgh oblast here, we must be of spiffing remove support for Ukronazis most efficiently what what, my bangers and mash are of becoming right too bally pricey. If such affairs continue I will have to of stop much needed dentist visitings.
What I'm getting out of this is that Russian low observability cruise missiles like the kh101 are a joke and Storm Shadow is showing them how precision cruise missiles are supposed to work.
