Russia has launched a missile with an imitation nuclear warhead at Kyiv. “It’s a sign that the aggressor is running out of bullets”
The industry portal, citing information from the military, reported that a Kh-55 (Russian: X-55) cruise missile was shot down near Kiev, without a warhead.
Instead of a warhead in this missile, a block was “screwed” in, which acted as an imitation of a nuclear warhead. To put it simply: for this attack, the orcs took at least one Ch-55 from their “nuclear arsenal”, unscrewed the nuclear warhead and so fired a missile at Kyiv
Experts explain that the Russian Federation usually used Kh-555 missiles for attacks on Ukraine – this is a “non-nuclear” modification of the Kh-55 missile, transformed into a conventional warhead with “classic” explosives.
The portal explains that conventional and nuclear warheads are structurally different.
It seems that this is why the orcs succeeded: to remove the “special warhead” from the Ch-55, but there was no constructive possibility to load a conventional warhead there. Therefore, they used an empty Ch-55
– we read.
The Russians could make such a decision for several reasons – for example, the army responsible for the massive rocket fire of Ukraine received such an order from the so-called mountains.
However, even this option already indicates that the stocks of cruise missiles in the Russian Federation are running out at a critical point for the Kremlin
– convinces the portal.
Another possible explanation is that the Russians deliberately used the Ch-55 with a dummy nuclear warhead to overwhelm Ukraine’s air defenses.
