Ka-52 in Syria: Militants will never forget the Russian "Alligator"
The Ka-52 attack helicopter passed its baptism of fire in the Syrian conflict at the end of March 2016, when fierce battles were fought for Palmyra. The Alligator effectively acted against the militants, using several types of guided and unguided rockets. Among them are the “Attack” missiles with anti-tank and high-explosive fragmentation warheads. They showed excellent accuracy, destroying terrorist groups the first time.
Uncontrollable C-8OFP missiles also demonstrated uncharacteristic accuracy for this type of ammunition.
The President-S airborne anti-aircraft complex mounted on the helicopter allowed the Ka-52 to operate at a low altitude, thereby firing the enemy more accurately.
Russian experts call the Ka-52 one of the most successful helicopters in the world. Western military experts agree with reluctance.
