Erdogan: A Turkish military helicopter shot down during a special operation in Afrin

85
The Turkish Air Force helicopter crashed on Saturday in the south-east of the country on the border with Syria. As the President of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan said during a speech in Istanbul, the combat vehicle took part in the operation “Olive Branch” in the Syrian region of Afrin and was hit by Kurds.


Erdogan: A Turkish military helicopter shot down during a special operation in Afrin


Earlier today, our military helicopter was shot down in the province of Hatay during Operation Olive Branch. They will pay the full price.
- Hurriyet newspaper leads the words of the president. Erdogan said nothing about the fate of the crew. The newspaper also does not provide other details.

20 January Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch against Kurdish units in northern Syria. Gradually, promises to complete the forceful action “as soon as possible” were replaced by statements that Ankara does not intend to limit itself to the time frame. In total, nine Turkish soldiers have already died in the Afrin area. Recep Tayyip Erdogan claims that during the operation, 800 terrorists were killed.

      To the heap there was something left over to fill the Yankesian. I remember there was a video of how a cobra was also shot down from MANPADS in 2016. According to official figures from the Turkish Ministry of Defense, the rotorcraft was not shot down by Kurdish rebels, but crashed as a result of a technical malfunction

            Either Kurds are enemy litter or Card friends. Decide !!! every time a VKS plane is shot down, the Kurds immediately shot down Turkish helicopters. (2016 for Su-24, today for Su-25)
            Maybe it’s time to stop the Kurds from pouring mud over the fact that they simply protect their homes, children, their homeland in the end.

        Prime Minister Yildirim reported that T-129 ATAC pilots died. It is unclear whether the helicopter was shot down or crashed for technical reasons. Specialists work. Footage was shown of how the rescue force was landed from a cargo helicopter, and attack helicopters cover them. Erdogan is very determined. The beginning General Staff of Turkey flew today in the area of ​​operation on an AWACS aircraft

          and in another news they wrote that the pilots kind of like in a hospital. they say they reached their province and there the helicopter crashed.
          in general, it is not yet clear whether they died or were injured, I think they will announce later.

      Erdogan:
      ... During a special operation in Afghanistan, a Turkish military helicopter was shot down ...

      Some kind of inconsistency.
      ... Earlier today, our military helicopter was shot down in Hatay province during Operation "Olive Branch". They will pay for it in full ...

      Hatay Province, this is the south of Turkey. A helicopter shot down in southern Turkey, probably by the Kurds. What does the Syrian Afrin have to do with it - is it north-west of Syria, Aleppo governorate?
      For the past half century, Turks have been butting Kurds in their mountains. Now there was a pretext - to pile everything together and increase military pressure in the Syrian border.

          In the south of Hatay province, the Kurds shot down a Turkish attack helicopter T-129 ATAK, which took part in Operation Olive Branch in Afrin. The car was hit in the Rayo area in northwestern Afrin, managed to (even though the video is not so obvious) reach the Turkish territory and already fell there. Both pilots died.

    Good day to all, maybe not on the topic, I’ll go back to what I’ve written before, yesterday the guy sent an acquaintance, went on business trips together.
    Hi guys. That without tracers I will say how it was. On the night of 7 to 8 there was a battle. Us times ... in the trash. I had 33 of my boys 11 dowries and three units of armored vehicles including a tank. They burned all the equipment from the tank, even the skeleton didn’t remain; they were chosen from this meat on foot. We left 17. The rest were killed. And now I’m in service 9. The remaining 300mi were immediately taken to the hospital. I myself fell down on my beard with fragments. If the fragments went higher then there would be no beard. And a foot once ... l when x .. All my equipment and clothes burned. All that was left was what was on me. This is just for my platoon. In other platoons, no better. Big losses in the division art. They were turned off by battle drones in the first 30 minutes. We were particularly confronted with American specialists. Helicopters also worked for us. We had no chance against them at all. They ran and hid from pit to pit from house to house.

    . Gradually, promises to complete the “as soon as possible” military action were replaced by statements that Ankara did not intend to limit itself to a time frame.
    The operation is delayed unscheduledly. There are three ways for the Turks: 1) to stop the operation - it is unrealistic because of losing face, dropping out of the applicants for a piece of the Syrian cake and automatically worsening the Kurdish issue for them 2) switching to the Russian model with the wide use of only aviation and MTR is unacceptable due to the lack of controllability of the green infantry and, accordingly, even more dragging out the process 3) the large-scale use of our own ground forces is doubtful because of the inevitable tangible losses and weakened command personnel of the army. So wherever you throw a wedge everywhere. Which option the sultan prefers or will find another, time will tell .... My opinion is that he will lean towards the second option and this area will become a field of slow battle for a long time

      Unfortunately, this is not so ... The operation was initially planned by the Turks as slowly developing. The lack of rush is due to the desire of the Turks to lure the forces of the Kurds from the settlements. The Kurds are not ISIS and Syrian rebels - they will not hide from their villages with their women, old people and children. The Turks expect that I will systematically and without haste grind the small detachments of the Kurds leaving the cities. And those znachitstsa who did not come out will be considered Turks loyal Kurds. And they will not touch them. Naturally, the Turks could, like the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Air Force bomb all in a row in their settlements, but they would not want to, as they want to get meek Kurdish partisans who are meek and loyal to Turks. How it will turn out (and whether it will turn out at all) - time will tell.

I admit that this Islamofascist will sooner or later lose patience and begin to unwind the Athenian Kurds without taking into account which of them are from the PKK and who are not related to the PKK.

                , they need to nag Faberge before it's too late.
                There is no one to pinch. All players in the region are capable of their own reasons for not doing this. So while Erkep Teyipych feels the line - he has maneuver and time

      Most of all, the fact that the Turks can get too bogged down in this massacre is heating me. It can happen just like in the Donbass, Kurds can start to shoot down both planes and turntables. They are fanatical enough and protect their families. From great heights, of course, it is possible to bomb using the videoconferencing and pro-American coalition technologies, but if the Russians succeeded, then the Americans do not. And I agree that the Turks will not be mass bombed, they need not brutalized partisans. There are a lot of Kurds in Turkey, and even if they are loyal now, then in case of lawlessness, who knows how they will behave.
      Most annoying is the fact that if the conflict drags on, the Americans will enter there under the guise of peacekeepers. Maybe for this they provoked the Turks

        What is it like? In Iraq, the war is over, and in Syria continues. It is rather the opposite. Plus, SDFs are moving towards the west.

    Good, but one is very small! At least a dozen Turkish planes and helicopters need to be shot down!

    At the expense of losses - fresh giving, but hard to believe. Just not real. And at the expense of the turntable, since there will be more of them and there is nothing to react like that “They will pay for it in full” - this is actually a war, so both sides will have to “pay”.

    - I can’t understand anything ... -From what it all suddenly concluded that a Turkish helicopter was shot down ... -Where can this be seen ..?
    - The two videos presented show how the helicopter flies quietly literally under the noses of those who take it off ... - then at the place where it flew they show some kind of smoke ... -And that's it ...
    -On the third video (where some commentator is also present), three helicopters are already visible ... -Two fly., And one with rotating screws is on the ground ...- Is this the "shot down helicopter" ?. ..- rather, it looks like some sort of emergency landing ... due to a technical malfunction ...
    -It seems that the Kurds are very much inferior to the Ishilists and other various gang units in military training and other military professional skills ... -That would have long ago shot down such an "easy target" ... -And the Kurds simply give out wishful thinking ...

      The fact that the helicopter was shot down, but it did not break down, Erdogan himself said if that. I think in the evening there will be pictures of Augusta.

    What a wonderful day - first an Israeli plane, now a Turkish helicopter. If our Su-25 was shot down by the Turks with an Israeli rocket, then everything falls into place.

    The Kurds sent 12 tanks for scrap. If 4 people are in the same tank. 12 * 4 = 48. Only fifty tankmen. With such losses, infantrymen should be 2 times more. That Erdogan is odd with numbers.

    Well, the time has come to shoot down Turkish helicopters, otherwise the Kurds have forgotten how they can do it, so now the Turkish plane is next in turn.

    Oh, it’s not good for you, it’s not good ...
