‘Underwatering’ Crimean Bridge: How Many ATACMS This Could Require

Analysis by a Ukrainian Armed Forces colonel.

Ukraine can destroy the Crimean bridge if it has at least 200 ATACMS missiles. At the same time, it is necessary to neutralize Russian air defense and sink every ship that will be sent to repair the bridge. Colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, military analyst Petro Chernyk spoke about this in an interview with Glavred.

“I don’t know what will happen to the Crimean Bridge, but I am sure that it needs to be submerged. Why isn't it destroyed now? Because actions that may be aimed at defeating it will not lead to the desired effect,” he explained.

Chernyk noted that a single ATACMS missile hitting the Crimean Bridge will not lead to the desired results. In a few weeks, the occupiers will repair such damage, so there is no need to use the $1.5 million missile.

“The Crimean Bridge is a large structure 18 kilometers long, and in order to destroy it and make it completely unusable, you need to break several sections of the bridge, 300-400 meters. To break 300-400 meters, you need to use 70-80 ATACMS and Storm Shadow missiles in a mixed cycle,” said the Ukrainian Armed Forces colonel.

According to him, it is also necessary to carry out an attack with hundreds of drones in order to neutralize anti-aircraft missile cover. Chernyk noted that the most important thing is to sink every barge that will be sent to repair the bridge.
