LNA claims to have shot down four Bayraktar drones in one night plus additional two quadcopters. Allegedly again by Pantsir S1 supplied by UAE. Hard to say if that is true. Sounds wild for sure. 

 

Alleged wreckedge of some which fell on LNA territory. 

/.../

   Doesn't sound wild for me, UAE Pantsirs were spotted in Libya last year or in 2018 IIRC.

I meant the number of kills what I find wild.

   Looks like Iran developed special AA loitering missile (or multipurpose missile) for Ansar Allakh and Yemeni army units supporting it. Missile is reffered as "358" in description by "US military sources".

   Interesting thing was posted on otvaga - Osa with "Purga" (Blizzard) soft kill APS. Purga is basically Shtora-like system for AA vehicles. Deploys smoke grenades that quickly create smoke screen covering wide spectrum of visible and IR light. Was shown at MAKS-2005 and was supposed to be a part of modernisation package for increased survaviblity.

Last few days of anti-air war in Lybia be like this...

 

 

First LNA "shot down" a drop tank from a Mirage 2000 of its allies just to be countered by GNA shooting down its own Bayraktar Mini drone.
