In the Donetsk region, British air defense covers the Ukrainian sky. The Stormer HVM air defense system does not shoot down rotorcraft and aircraft at a short distance, as was intended by the developers.

This is stated in the story of TSN correspondent Yulia Kiriyenko.

The Stormer HVM air defense system in the Donetsk region shoots down enemy targets. However, in order not to become the target of the occupiers, Ukrainian defenders must constantly change their location.

The Stormer air defense system was developed to destroy helicopters and aircraft at a short distance. And in the Donetsk region, it is most effective for hunting enemy drones.

"She will cover a distance of 5 km in 5-6 seconds," says fighter Dmytro.

There can be 8 missiles here at the same time. But for combat duty, it is important to have at least two. Each almost always hits the target. Because it is not only accurate, but also ultra-high-speed. This means that enemy drones or planes have no chance of escaping.

The Stormer air defense crew has been on the contact line since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. Previously, they worked on the Osya, a Soviet-style anti-aircraft missile system. Since Britain handed over the Stormer to Ukraine, this vehicle has passed both the Zaporizhia and now the Donetsk front.

"We are on combat duty 24/7. In any weather, on any day, we are always ready to go out and work," says the commander of the air defense vehicle Vasyl.

The Stormer crew has destroyed more than fifty enemy targets. And not only drones, but also two Su-25s

But when the crew works and covers the sky over the infantry, this vehicle also needs protection from drones. Russia has increased their production many times over. And now the occupiers are launching several kamikazes at the same time.The Stormer has a cover group that protects air defense from enemy drone strikes.

Air defense units of the Bila Tserkva Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment are among the first to receive weapons from Western partners to protect Ukrainian skies. Air defense vehicle operators work not only in Donetsk region, but also in Kharkiv, Chernihiv and native Kyiv regions

For almost a year, since the first air defense vehicle arrived in the regiment, the army has destroyed hundreds of enemy targets. But most of all, they were struck when they calculated the cost of the Russian weapons that were burned, which is $470 million.
