Syrian Mi-25 continue to bomb terrorists

12
Syrian attack helicopters Mi-25 continue to provide fire support to government forces in their operations against terrorists.


Most of these rotary-winged machines have been serving in the Middle East for more than three decades, but the technical services have been able to maintain them in combat-ready condition. Currently, two and a half dozen "turntables" of this modification regularly make combat missions.

Syrian Mi-25 continue to bomb terrorists


Mi-25 very often act as bombers. As a rule, they use air bombs weighing up to 500 kg, delivered back in Soviet times. Also apply aviation ammunition made directly in Syria.

According to military experts, at present, local gunsmiths have learned to make aerial bombs, which by their characteristics are quite consistent with those produced by foreign enterprises. Despite the slanderous accusations of Western propaganda, this weapon directed exclusively against the military facilities of terrorists.

Also during the attack, unmanaged aircraft missiles and large-caliber four-barreled machine guns YakB-12.7 with a rate of fire of up to 4500 rounds per minute are used.

Syrian Mi-25 helicopters are one of the few machines in this family that continue to use 9М17П missiles of the Phalang-PV complex. Having semi-automatic guidance, they can disable various militant equipment at a distance of 4,5 km, reports RG-Sil

      Wow, color! We can’t find it with fire during the day (all the black and white SARPP "Isopanochrome-25" were taken without perforation), and there is nowhere to show it. What kind of pros did, if not secret?

        I. I was just a fan in my youth. Black and white did not suit, color is difficult. But color reversal (slides) was a compromise. Although it was still a circus to manifest it in Afghanistan.
        Now I drove through the scanner.
        That's not all, though.

        It’s a pity that we didn’t meet ... I don’t find anyone from the 361st AFP - that's why I ask.
