Syria transferred to the next Mi-24P

As the news portal "Messenger of Mordovia”, The Air Force of the Syrian Arab Republic passed the next combat helicopter Mi-24P, already taking an active part in the battles.

Syria transferred to the next Mi-24P


According to the military expert Yuri Lyamin, this machine was previously in Syria as part of the Russian Aerospace Force.

This is the second rotary-wing machine handed over to the Syrians. If the first one was "yellow 30" and received the Syrian number "2861", then the second one was "yellow 40" and now received a new number, probably 2862. As you can see, it is also used as a bomber to drop its own bombs.




This model is significantly superior to the old Mi-25 in service with government forces. The Mi-24P uses a twin 30-mm cannon, long-range Storm-B missiles and another arsenal of various unguided weapons.
Prior to supplying the Mi-24P, the Syrian units were equipped with helicopters armed only with large-caliber machine guns and capable of using outdated versions of anti-tank guided missiles with a relatively short flight distance.

Mi-24P helicopters were mass-produced from April 1981 g. As shown by the actual use of the machine, in some cases the power of the GSH-30K was excessive, a 23 caliber gun would be quite sufficient for some operations. The helicopter was exported under the designation Mi-35P.

      When will Syrian fighters be banned to take selfies?
      in Khmeimim, for example, mobile phones are illegal - they take away all of them without exception.

    The power of GSh - 30K is never excessive. Especially there.

    Is it interesting that our decommissioned equipment is delivered, or how is it from combatant units? Still, of course, it’s not entirely clear is it all a duty or will we regret nothing again for the sake of friendship? Friendship is of course friendship, but still such issues need to be raised

          Bye places. Assad signed the law on the WWII free base in Tartus. This is Sevastopol in the Mediterranean. We pay for it. Simple taxpayers

      People are fighting there at all, so there’s no question about what technology is being written off. You don’t confuse this concept with the concept of “retired”

      In this case, it would be time for the Syrians to get out from behind our pilots' backs and to fight for HIMSELF.

      Friendship is friendship, of course, but such questions need to be raised.

      Seeing how easy it is for us to write off other people's debts, not forgetting to pay our own, I won’t be surprised

        Duc, the process is on. Our pilots on the Mi-24 risked their lives, now Syrian pilots are risking their lives on the same helicopter.

      The Syrians are happy about this. They haven’t been receiving new aircraft in mass production for thirty years.

        I remember that we were Syria before the war, begged to buy weapons from us! Putin even wrote off debts of 10 greens of greens, just buy weapons from us. And they turned their nose and terribly traded at a price.

    They have some kind of unhealthy craving for all sorts of bombs ala "barrel-style" wassat Based on the fact that our helicopter pilots do not use bombing, there is little benefit and effect on this, or the Syrians do not know how to use NURSs and throw these rusty blanks at random request

      Back in 1942, the effectiveness of aviation weapons in infantry and equipment was checked at the training ground.
      The least effective were the guns and machine guns.
      NURS proved to be a little better.
      The most effective were high-explosive fragmentation bombs.
      Syrians from helicopters also use OF bombs and volume explosion bombs.
      Moreover, from a helicopter in hover mode, it is possible to drop bombs very accurately, more precisely than from the Syrian Su-22 or MiG-21 and 23.
      Therefore, in the west, the main howl toward Assad about the use of "non-humane weapons" of "barrel bombs", i.e. barrels - ammunition volumetric explosion.

        So why do Soviet and Russian helicopter pilots not use bombing? Not familiar with the results of firing range 42 ??

    I can’t understand why to transfer Mi-24P to the Syrians if they use only improvised bombs from the entire arsenal of weapons? Do we really have no older modifications (for example, B or D) in storage?

      It’s very right to gradually “transfer” part of the helicopters and other equipment to the Syrians at the expense of military assistance or at the expense of “paying” for our bases
      Not to bring cars that passed a rather severe test of survival in Syrian conditions and probably almost exhausted their resources back to Russia.

      They just don’t have more money for a more “advanced” weapon, our Mi-24Ps certainly flew there with slightly different “suspension” weapons.
      Mi-24 helicopters carry combat duty at an air base in Syria

        Well, we can throw NURSs, these are not “gold” precision munitions in the end. There are a lot of videos on the Internet about the use of these bombs by helicopters from helicopters — they throw from a great height so as not to fall under the memory it’s not necessary to speak about accuracy. specialists better know how to use them. yes

          The fact is that they themselves produce these bombs and they need to buy NURSs and unfortunately, this does not allow the Syrian budget at the moment because it amounted to only $ 5 billion per year and this is the WHOLE budget of the country for ALL expenses per year.

        If this is a question, then I will answer: that in the Soviet Army, that in the Russian, bombing with freely falling bombs is the basis of combat training of crews! (along with firing NURS and cannon-machine gun)!
