Details are fairly scant at this point but the head of Ukraine’s air force has confirmed it on telegram.

Total value of that is > $120M USD. Nom nom nom.

    Fucking love it.

    I wonder if it is the work of the new Patriot they were set to receive from Germany.

      I’ve seen a fair bit of speculation that it was patriot alright. If that is the case it means the Ukrainians took a gamble and rolled those launchers very close to the font lines. The glide bombs that the SU-34 uses have a range of about 50KM as I understand it.

      Russian telegram at least partly confirming now too. Incredible job.
