About 20, the crews of the Mi-8AMTSH launched a rocket attack on the "enemy" in the Rostov region


The exercises were performed as part of the final test for the 2017 school year.

After hovering from the command post, the helicopters went in pairs into the designated area, worked out the search and classification of targets, after which they conducted practical firing using guided missiles and cannon weapons,
says release.

It is noted that "the complexity of the flight was that the crews operated at extremely low altitude, in order to camouflage using the terrain."

During the flights, the pilots also performed complex maneuvers in order to avoid the impact of the enemy’s air defense weapons and suppress its radar equipment.

At night, the tasks were performed "using satellite navigation systems, infrared equipment and night vision partings."

In addition, "the crews have worked out the elements of a re-entry to attack, cover each other and leave a conditioned opponent from retaliation," the press service added.

In total, more than 20 crews were involved in the events.

      The helicopter is not a plane, and the plane is limited. You want to stop the tanks with grenades.

        It’s interesting, but what is the whole point of arming the MI-8? Are there special attack helicopters? Greater versatility?

          Rob caravans.
          But seriously, to clear the landing area and a lot for what.
          Mi-8AMTSh transport and assault.

          The same as in the armament of the UH-60 - additional cleaning of the landing zone immediately before the landing and the operational suppression of the firing points that opened during the landing. It’s much easier to suppress a detected target yourself than to give target designators to it, and even attached to the terrain.
          One of the “Afghans” pilots flying the Mi-8 recalled how their crew discovered a DShK position 200 meters right during the landing, whether the camouflage was blown away by the wind, or the eye “got hooked” from a new angle. In general, the infantrymen who jumped out went the command "to take refuge wherever possible," and the "eight" worked out NURSami almost point blank.

            It’s clear, another question, why then didn’t completely switch to the use of more protected mi-24? Too small amount of disant transported? Or not a successful flying BMP concept?

              I’ll tell you a little secret. Despite the presence of the airborne compartment, it never carried an airborne landing. The main problem of the Mi-24, it is quite heavy, in its concept was created primarily for fighting tanks.

                Clear. Well, that is, the landing cockpit there is in fact superfluous and yet

                not a good flying BMP concept?


                Then it’s not entirely clear why the MI-35 is still being manufactured / adopted.

                    Nevertheless, the Mi-35 remained able to transport and land the troops.

          The fact is that just the transporter was supplemented with the function of delivering fire. From this, its functions were not affected.

              Weapon option is selected based on the task. In the same Afghanistan, when they flew to mountain stations, lightened vehicles to the maximum.

          I asked you this. I think it is empty to answer the question with the same question. I know one thing "I took out from distant army everyday life) that in a war all means are good no matter how outdated they are. Moreover, as we understand what was worked out They didn’t inform. So it’s not for us to reason for ANY war our army is preparing.

            You got in with your evidence and stupidities and created a bazaar. It was really impossible to think first, enter the topic, and then write. If the author wrote that the helicopters attacked in the conditions of air defense, combat drones, etc., it would be clear that the conditions modern, and since the teachings were described in greenhouse conditions, the conclusions are appropriate. What a child’s habit to contradict wherever you go.

      Guys from the territory neighboring to 404 “hinted”: “you’ll climb with the“ modern Bastions ”- we won’t even strain the“ crocodiles. We’ll have enough animals for you to keep scrap ”. Without specifying where these Strongholds should not go. So, they’ve "fooled around." And lope there before the ATO? winked

    20 crews, or still 20 MI-28AMTSh helicopters, or still 20 crews on two MI-28AMTSH helicopters. The difference is still big. And the name of the news I would change from "About 20 Mi-8AMTSh crews launched a missile strike on the" enemy "in the Rostov region" to North Korean: "About 20 Mi-8AMTSH crews launched crushing missile strike on the "enemy" in the Rostov region.
