“Eastern Ukraine – The cheetah takes Iran’s kamikaze drones out of the sky. Germany has delivered 30 anti-aircraft tanks to Ukraine so far. BILD was the first medium to meet the crew of a cheetah. Her experience so far: highly positive. Especially against the Iranian Kamikaze drones of the type Shahed-136, the cheetah is extremely effective!” It’s a very good system,” says the gunner, codenamed Max. The cheetah has proven itself in various roles all over the country. Now it is also being used to protect critical infrastructure – as it was on this day.
“I haven’t had breakfast today,” says Max. Because already in the early morning he had the first mission – the Russian army fired on this day again massive missiles at civilian targets throughout Ukraine. There is also alarm in the northeast of the country, where Max and his comrades are stationed.
“We went out and had also detected two incoming ballistic missiles, but they were just out of range.””
