Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Pentagon for the first time acknowledges sending previously undisclosed anti-radar missiles to Ukraine | CNN Pentagon Briefing - Aug. 8, 2022 |

Recently [March 10] the Ukrainian pilot, Major Yevhen Lysenko, was shot down aboard his MiG-29 fighter, which he used to launch AGM-88 HARM missiles, as can be seen in a video made in his commemoration and posted on the Twitter account of the Ukrainian Air Force. The AGM-88 HARM missiles have had a low success rate, with several being shot down before even hitting Russian radar stations. This is probably because anti-radar missiles are less effective at low altitudes, while Ukrainian pilots have been employing these missiles at low altitudes to prevent their fighters from being detected and shot down by Russian anti-aircraft systems.

Finally, on Aug. 30, 2022, the Ukrainian Air Force shared an interesting video on social media channels, filmed with action/GoPro cameras attached to the pilot's helmet, showing several HARM missiles being fired (in some cases, also dual shots).

The HARM appears also to be carried to the inboard underwing pylon.

Along with the AGM-88 being carried and shot by the MiG-29, what's remarkable in the footage is also the installation of a commercial GPS and a tablet in the cockpit.
