This is understandable: helicopter pilots had to fly at low altitudes, carrying out direct fire support to the units of the Syrian army. However, not all helicopters were destroyed by terrorists. Part of the losses incurred due to piloting errors.
Be that as it may, Russian helicopters played a crucial role in the military successes of the Syrian government forces.
The TV channel "Star" published interesting footage of the military work of the VKS. On them, our helicopter Mi-28H destroys the combat vehicle of terrorists. As explained to the video, shooting was carried out from a distance of 3 kilometer.
