Turkish F-16 fighter destroyed own Black Hawk helicopter

32
The Turkish Air Force F-16 was forced to destroy its own helicopter. This was reported by Defense Arabic.




The Turkish multi-purpose helicopter Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk arrived at the theater of operations to evacuate the wounded on the battlefield. However, during a flight at low altitude, as a result of a projectile fired from an alleged RPG-7, he was forced to make an emergency landing.

The Turkish military decided to play it safe and not allow the possibility of capturing the rotorcraft by Kurdish units or the approaching troops of the Syrian Arab army. As a result, a helicopter was hit from the F-16 fighter, which led to the complete destruction of the machine. Turkish authorities only report that an operation was successfully carried out to evacuate the wounded.

      Unfortunately, this method of distorting facts has become very popular among the media, especially the "yellow" sense, one goal is pursued, to make the reader become interested in the article. If the title had indicated the essence, then few people would have been interested in the details, but it turns out that the Turks shot down their plane by accident or mistaking it for someone else's and kind of a sensation.

      And what is wrong in the title? It is not written there that he brought him down. It is written that destroyed [damaged helicopter].

      Well, what's "hellish"? This was practiced in our country in 1941, when the Katyusha battery was destroyed by special forces so that the Nazis did not get it.

      Yes, those clickbet headlines are just a breeze. All these "shootings" in fact turn out to be shooting from pneumatics, "terrorists" in the form of schoolchildren or such a substitution of meaning as here.

        And the Americans are very impressionable. A few years later they lulled this topic. Blockbuster filmed / shown, a computer game released. Black Hawk Down, Black Hawk Down, Aydid, Aydid ... scary ... scary

    Turkey suffers losses from the Kurds. Turkey announced the death of its serviceman during the operation in northern Syria "Source of Peace".

    Ankara reported that in a clash with the Kurds, one of the Turkish military was killed. In addition, according to a communique of the Ministry of National Defense, one of the army men was injured.

    Yet they planted Kurds from the RPG Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk. And the fact that the Turks had to destroy it is the tenth thing, although I doubt that the Kurds could need this helicopter. Rather, they did not want to give it to the Russians, the Kurds do not have pilots and there is no way to repair such equipment

      This turntable has been around for many years. What could be interesting there? If some NATO or mattress were fresh, that would be interesting.

        There are a lot of interesting things there: communications, software, friend or foe, these are past technical solutions. And you obviously got excited about the old car. The material does not indicate the brand of cars, but in 14 Turkey bought 340 car sets and an assembly license S-70i models

          I do not think that Turkish electronics or software are of any particular interest. If it were the US, Israeli, British. Regarding the turntable, I did not mean when it was assembled, but when it was adopted. I think that engines, gearboxes and everything else are already available in specialized organizations in Russia.

            There is no a priori Turkish electronics, this is a licensed assembly.

              I think there are a lot of them falling all over the planet. Housing materials and blades can be taken elsewhere. I do not think that there were any stealth coverings on the glider.

              I have something to do with helicopters and engines, not an engineer or designer, but I have a general idea. Tell me how the Mi - 8 released 30 years ago is different from the one that rolled out of the shop yesterday?

      Lucky, however, to get into a helicopter from an RPG.


      So sat down or took off. Speed ​​and height are small. Surely the village, a village from where they sadanul almost at point blank range. And the RPG helicopter carries more or less, oddly enough. In our case, Menkov caught it in the ass, on the left wing of the Mi-8. Motor rifle landed, began to take off and received. Dyryshcha - a person will crawl through, the right sash into the sieve, fragments and up into the beam, harnesses cut, an additional tank in the cabin is full of holes, kerosene on the floor, sash wide - 25 km still pulled home. The benefit is near.
      So they swallowed the part, did not send it anywhere.
