Why is the American Patriot system unable to intercept Russian guided bombs?

The head of the Kyiv regime, Volodymyr Zelensky, complained about the lack of protection against Russian hovering guided bombs, noting that the Patriot systems are not an effective means against Russian air strikes.

The Russian newspaper Russkiy Engineer said that Patriot is not an effective means against Russian FAB guided bombs, not because it does not hit them, but because it is unable to shoot them down.

A slow-motion image of the bombing of military facilities in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv showed the Russian FAB-500 bomb flipped upside down after being damaged by an anti-aircraft missile, but it still continued to move towards its designated target.

The newspaper says that the durability of Russian bombs is only part of it, and the other part lies in the countless quantities of these bombs since the Soviet era. Russian factories were able to quickly equip these cheap bombs with an industrial trajectory modification unit, which turned them into a highly accurate weapon, and their cost is many times less than the cost of a single American Patriot missile.

Of course, the American industry cannot produce 3,200 missiles every month, while the Russian industry produces exactly that number of highly accurate guided bombs every month.
