Damaged by militants under Aleppo Mi-24P Syrian Air Force returned to duty

A snapshot of the Syrian Air Force Mi-24P helicopter appeared on the Web, which replaced the elements of the tail stabilizer. According to the author, who posted the image on his Twitter page, the photo shows the multi-purpose attack helicopter Mi-24P of the Syrian Air Force with tail number 2861, which had previously been damaged by terrorist fire near Aleppo.


As previously reported, as a result of falling into a helicopter, a part of the stabilizer was torn off at the Mi-24P, however, the crew managed to land the attack rotorcraft. According to some reports, an anti-aircraft shell hit the helicopter, according to others - a fragment of an anti-aircraft missile. It was also reported that the Turkish military tried to bring down the rotorcraft. Currently, the helicopter is repaired and is ready to perform combat missions again.

It should be noted that the official Damascus did not confirm the data on the defeat of the attack helicopter by the Turkish military, although initially a photo of the damaged helicopter appeared

The Syrian government forces became aware of the supply of Russian Mi-24P helicopters in 2017, when the first helicopters of this type appeared above the positions of militants in the province of Derya. Before the Mi-24P deliveries, the Syrian units were equipped with helicopters armed only with heavy machine guns and capable of using outdated versions of anti-tank guided missiles with a relatively short flight distance.


Mi-24P significantly surpasses the old Mi-25, which is in service with government forces. It differs from the base Mi-24P model by the presence of the GSh-30K gun, located on the starboard side in the fixed NPU-30 installation. In addition, the helicopter is equipped with long-range missiles such as "Sturm-B" and "Attack", as well as a whole arsenal of various unguided weapons. Serial production began in 1981. It was exported as Mi-35P.

      Yes, and it’s nice to see that anti-aircraft systems are on the machine, of course, if I'm not mistaken. At the beginning of the tail boom?

        No, protection against MANPADS is placed on the suspension

            I will not say that in the picture, but in the early 2000s, in Ukraine they advertised the Adros system, protection against thermal GOS. It looks the same.

    Someone today shouted to V.O. about the Iron Curtain badly, and so you and an example, the technique created in the USSR, and what groundwork for modernization was laid !!! Yeltsinoids can not understand this.

      The tradition is good, but there is no tradition to equip the "battlefield aviation" with long-range high-precision weapons, which is more important. Also needed are airborne reconnaissance, recognition and target designation tools, algorithms for distributing reconnaissance targets between airborne and ground-based strike facilities.

        and who said that we don’t have this? The Syrians don’t have it, because the helicopter was in export version. I’m talking about something else, I’ve talked about the quality of manufacturing and design. They knocked it down and still returned to base.

    A solid margin of safety. Here you and the USSR have lived most of their lives under sanctions. They themselves calculated such things on the log lines. Thank you to the authors of the machine. hi
