Militants using MANPADS shot down MiG-23 air force of Libya

68
There were reports that the terrorists shot down the MiG-23 plane of the Libyan air force in the sky over Benghazi. Initially, local media reported that a military aircraft crashed due to a technical malfunction. Now it became known about the attack of the aircraft with a rocket of a portable anti-aircraft missile system. The model of MANPADS is not reported.


Militants using MANPADS shot down MiG-23 air force of Libya


The attack on the plane of the MANPADS missile reported to the representatives of the command of a Libyan military pilot who managed to eject in time.

It is known that the Libyan air forces today launched a major operation against the militants of the Islamic State and Al-Qaida terrorist groups (both banned in the Russian Federation) in the Benghazi region. For several hours, the positions of terrorists to the west of the city, considered a stronghold of the Libyan opposition, were attacked from the air.

Military experts believe that the appearance of MANPADS from terrorists in Libya can be regarded as a development of the situation with the announcement of US officials to approve the supply of such weapons to "moderate oppositionists" in the Middle East, in particular, to Syria. Considering the fact that Syria’s “moderate oppositionists” have contacts with Al-Qaida’s affiliate Al-Nusra Front (also banned in the Russian Federation), the appearance of Al-Qaida’s MANPADS in Libya remained a matter of the near future. It seems that this time, unfortunately for the Libyan Air Force, has come ...

    MANPADS systems are subject to international control and their export is limited by a special agreement. The Americans or their allies, represented by the Cathars, are quietly engaged in deliveries, thereby supplying terrorists in the open.

      Sooner or later, with the help of these MANPADS, they will bring down some civilian plane, but already in Qatar itself, whether the EU is the USA,

        In Qatar, they will not be shot down by allies and sponsors of these same terrorists
        The USA is far overseas and they believe that MANPADS will not penetrate into their country
        And in the EU for a long time already they all spit on, they completely lost their authority and became simply hand lapdogs of the USA of Israel and other enemies of the world on our planet.

              2M is Mach 2 speed, that is, two speeds of sound, which is 780 m / s. And from 8 km you mixed up the slant range.
              And Mach 2.2 will be 844 m / s.

                  Wrong, it happens.

                  But as you have already noticed - this is a variable and depends on the air temperature.
                  The speed you specify will be at 0 degrees.
                  But usually indicate the speed at room temperature, and it will be approximately 340 m / s.
                  And in that typo that I made, a similar speed will be at a temperature of just over 100 degrees Celsius.

              Characteristics can be overestimated for advertising purposes, especially since there is no data on their use in military operations.
              It is interesting that it is used in the engine as fuel, that with such a mass, it supposedly provides such a speed.

                The speed of the rocket doesn’t make any sense to overestimate - and the engine is more likely to use a high-energy powder mixture. The laser guidance system is a semiautomatic device, all electronic warfare systems, including thermal traps against it, are useless - we would like such a MANPADS.

                  The fact that there is solid fuel is already clear. And the rocket speed, given the firing range and the flight speed of the target, which will be in the region of 700 m / s, does not make sense with regard to MANPADS.
                  Why?
                  Response time.
                  A person simply does not have time to react. Or, he will have to bring the MANPADS into combat position in advance and know the direction of fire that will be issued to him from the radars. But these radars work in conjunction with other air defense systems and can bring down a high-speed target themselves.
                  Also, I am not a chemical physicist, but in principle it is possible to calculate what kind of energy is needed in order to accelerate a rocket with a mass of tens of kilograms to supposedly 4 km / s for 5-1.3 seconds.
                  It is unlikely that the mass of the powder mixture will be more than a couple kg. The remaining weight is the body, engine and the striking element.
                  In general, I want to say that I doubt the declared speed.

      That's just the same Libyan terrorists did not sign these treaties. And in their hands - the warehouses of Gaddafi. In addition, the reliable supply of Syrian terrorists is the army of neighboring Iraq, regularly leaving warehouses and garrisons during the retreat.

          It seems that they said about him in the gravitational troops - A flying chisel. Four borders without a pilot flying

          4 borders and 5 countries: took off in Poland, there he scared the pilot-politician right up to the bailout, after which he stopped being weird and went on autopilot across the borders: Poland-GDR, GDR-Germany, Germany-Netherlands, Netherlands-Belgium. The fuel ran out over Belgium - and the MiG-23 fell to the farm (1 person died).
          The MiG-23 was escorted by NATO fighters, but could not be shot down - the plane, as luck would have it, was flying over a densely populated area, and no one wanted to take responsibility for the victims on the ground.

      Certainly better .. But besides the quality of technology, there must be a well-trained pilot .. And the Libyans and Syrians not only fly on MiGs of half a century of freshness, but the skill leaves much to be desired ...

    Military experts believe that the appearance of MANPADS by terrorists in Libya can be regarded as a development of the situation with the announcement of American officials to approve the supply of such weapons to “moderate opposition” in the Middle East, in particular, in Syria.
    And what is the basis for such a conclusion of anonymous "military experts", just on assumptions? With the same success it could be a Chinese MANPADS. Prove that this is not so ...

    You're right. Ours operate at heights beyond the reach of MANPADS. And helicopters should recall their experience in Afghanistan. To extinguish the barmaley at night. There’s everything for this.

      Yes, no, they have not forgotten, just all MANPADS have one quality that can be considered both good and bad, depending on how you look at it. The shelf life of the missiles is FINAL, after which they can only be used as sinkers ...

        The shelf life of any weapon is FINAL, with regard to MANPADS, the shelf life of disposable batteries is critical there. I do not recommend using them as sinkers - the fish in the pond after this will rest.

      I don't need to try, there are enough of their own main ones. And here is a Night Hunter, not a Night Hunter. "Stinger" machine is serious and works well at night too.

        I had nothing to do with the Stinger, but it happened with domestic MANPADS. This is not such an easy-to-use weapon as is commonly believed among ordinary people.
        As for this video, several points are noteworthy:
        1. On the MANPADS apparently there is a sight with a night channel.
        2. The target search is carried out in a narrow sector, the calculation of MANPADS clearly knows in advance from which direction an unmanned target will appear. Shooting is carried out in greenhouse conditions, in the absence of countermeasures.
        3. But even in this case, the defeat of the target does not occur in 100% of launches.

    First google. I don’t like familiarity
    Familiarity and respect, of course, are different things, but even those like Mr. Mechelson and Deripaska are not particularly vigorous. I personally am 47 years old and I think calling me "you" is the height of disrespect.
    I have the honor

    Let's start with the fact that not Mechelson, but Leonid Michelson.
    I am not familiar with them, so I don’t know how these gentlemen vomit, especially or not especially.
    I am older than you. When at 47 years old a person pokes, and he considers it to be the highest of respect, this speaks first of all about his level of education and the environment where he received it.
    And you will save your honor when you send a link to your information.
    All the best!

    The main thing is that the pilot is alive, he is more expensive than an airplane.
