Militants in Libya shot down a national army plane

23
The Libyan National Army (LNA) fighter was shot down by a rocket over the city of Derna in the north of the country, two crew members fell into the hands of militants, reports RIA News Reuters message.



The MIG-21 fighter was shot down by a rocket after it hit the militant positions,
said LNA spokesperson Nasser Hassi.

About the fate of the crew is not known. According to the agency, the pilots ejected and were captured by the militants.

The diarchy reigns in Libya now: a parliament elected by the people sits in the east of the country in the city of Tobruk, and a national consensus government headed by Faez Sarraj is ruled in the west in the capital Tripoli. The authorities of the eastern part of Libya do not coordinate their actions with Tripoli and cooperate with the national army under the authority of Khalifa Haftar, who is waging a protracted war with various factions. Many areas of the country are practically not controlled by either the government or the other.

    There is no national army there ... there are gangs and groups that have overthrown the legitimate government with the support of the West and appropriated the army of their own ..... and pilots can sympathize with the current,

      Now, if a French fighter was shot down, that’s interesting news .. But it’s so boring, they gouged Libya, Sarkozy wrote off his debts to Kadaffi .. Oil is pumping at an accelerated pace ..! The country is no more and will not be ..

        Sarkozy wrote off his debts to Gaddafi.

        The French so accepted! At the beginning of the 14th century, the King of France Philippe 4th (Handsome), trapped the HIGH MASTER of the Templars and handed over to the "Holy Inquisition" in order to write off the debts of his father.
        Republic "Fifth", and mores are medieval ...
        But we are "savages"!

    In Libya, or rather the former Libya, one hell will figure out who is who? There is STABLE only the lack of STABILITY.
    I think Haftar is the smallest evil possible in Libya. There is now a mess, and Haftara will not be a mess in Cuba

    And here (in VO) a recent analytical article was on the topic of the complete futility of modern ground-based air defense. I understand that the MIG-21 is an antique, but it is also unlikely that it was shot down from the S-400.

      They shot down the same antique "Strela-2". Again, the double MiG-21 is a UTI, that is, from the load there are a maximum of two NURS units, which is not good news.

      So they used the MiG-21 as an attack aircraft, shot jeeps from a low-flying flight.

        Well, if there are no specialized stormtroopers, and if you need to frighten the bearded on jeeps from time to time, then where to go?

      I apologize again about Ukraine hi (She bothered me myself), but they shot down an old Boeing beech! And you are talking about modern air defense!

        The civilian board knock down, what problems? Is there a reach for a passenger altitude missile? If yes, then the goal is doomed - anti-ballistic systems are only put on board No. 1 (but they belong to the Air Force in all countries) and, it seems, the Israelis (there has been some information about their intentions to equip their aircraft with protective equipment).

          The most interesting in such countries is Iraq, Libya, etc. no information, they allegedly set fire to the oil rig, the tanker was blown up, etc ... It leads to different thoughts! wink Syria and Iran were next in turn ... But then the Russians didn’t take the time and the universe howled, about the terrible and treacherous Russians ... Ha ha ha

            So few idiots ready to slaughter a chicken that lays golden eggs. Therefore, while there is a hope to seize property and use the income from it, they will not destroy it. And if there are crazy scumbags, then they tear off their heads, including their own.
            The situation may change if one of the parties is confident in its loss. And then - the surrender of property intact will be used as a bargain to save their lives.

              But it’s interesting: would the videoconferencing system demonstrate the same willingness to bomb oil derricks and tankers if Russia was not an exporter but an importer of oil products, and, accordingly, every dollar would not bring money to the budget to the price, but would take it out of there?
              I specify immediately: the fact that each state acts in its own interests, I consider it absolutely correct and inevitable.

    Anarchy is the mother of order! And Ukraine and Libya are practical training grounds for this thesis. Controlled chaos is the main achievement of the World Backstage.
