British intelligence: Russian military resorting to deception tactics to conceal aircraft after Ukrainian strikes

Due to successful Ukrainian strikes on Russian military targets, Russia has been forced to employ various decoy and deception methods to conceal its aircraft.

This was reported by the UK Ministry of Defense on Twitter.

According to the report, false Russian fighters are painted on the concrete at the Kirovske airfield in occupied Crimea. Similar scenes were observed on at least 12 other Russian airbases, demonstrating Russia's concern about future Ukrainian strikes and its ability to counter them.

 

 

However, according to British intelligence, Russian helicopters continue to regularly land on the painted false fighter silhouettes, completely thwarting the attempted deception.

 

 

"This also reveals the true order of a battle or aircraft strength on these airbases, which Russia is likely trying to mask from Ukraine's intelligence picture," the UK Ministry of Defense noted.
