Ukraine's Secret Weapon: Deception
– Ukraine is using wooden decoys of HIMARS rocket launchers to trick Russia into firing expensive missiles at them.
– Ukrainian companies are making fake artillery from sewer pipes for less than $1000.
– Ukraine is using electronic warfare to jam Russian drones and missiles.
– Ukraine is spreading false information on social media to confuse Russian forces.
– Ukraine is using camouflage and concealment to hide its troops and equipment.
– Ukraine is using mobility to outmaneuver Russian forces.
– Ukraine is using deception to buy time and conserve its own resources.
Ukraine's use of deception has been very effective. Russia has fired millions of missiles and artillery shells in the war
but many of them have hit fake targets or missed their targets altogether
