Frames presented attempting to bring down an American transport aircraft C-130 Hercules


A video was published on the network that demonstrates an attempt to attack a military transporter from the ground. This is a U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft. According to recent reports, an attack on the transport side was carried out in Afghanistan.


In the publication, The Drive indicates that the militants attempted to shoot down an American military transport aircraft using a grenade launcher. Moreover, the same publication claims that it is an RPG-7 manual anti-tank grenade launcher. Although experts doubted that a grenade launcher shot was represented on the frames.

Everything that happened was photographed with the help of a video camera the American drone MQ-9 Reaper, which was at that time in the air. The video shows a parachute dropping cargo from the side of an American transporter, which lowered its height to complete this discharge. At this moment, an attack attempt was carried out, carried out from one of the buildings in the area of ​​the military facility, for which the cargo was intended.

Ammunition released passed the aircraft, however, in the immediate vicinity of the cargo dropped from the side. At least visually, you can perceive that way.

The material indicates that in the end, none of the US military was injured. At the same time, the operator of the reconnaissance and strike drone launched a missile attack of the same position from which the ammunition was produced.

        In Chechnya, they hit a maneuvering helicopter.
        And here, from a distance of about a dozen wingspan of this aircraft did not hit.
        What a big plane.
        They shot at all with a VERY SMALL WARNING - a rocket flies into several corps behind the aircraft.
        Those who fight and survive in Afghanistan cannot be so “green”.

          distances of about a dozen wingspan of this aircraft did not fall. What a big plane.

          So at a vantage point from what distance did they shoot? Maybe the shooter is not very experienced or something. The luck of one is the failure of others

            S-130 wingspan is about 40 meters. So, they shot somewhere from 400-420 meters.
            The cruising speed of 628 km / h is 175 m / s
            RPG-7 shot speed 112-145 m / s
            That is, the lead had to take about 12 aircraft corps. And the lead in one case was taken.
            Such squinting fighters cannot survive in Afghanistan.

                The distance from the aircraft to the launch of the rocket is by eye the size of the aircraft.

                  And at school you weren’t taught that the plane and the arrow have different heights above the ground and different distances from the drone, so visually without taking into account these and many other things, it’s better not to determine anything?) And it can turn out like with one famous Boeing -777 and Su- 27 over Donbas, where due to ignorance of these moments the Boeing turned out to be the size of a couple of stadiums) drinks

                    By the way, yes. The airplane is not visible at all in the video, only its shadow is visible (the distance from the shadow to the arrow is about 420 m). But the flight of the rocket is clearly visible.
                    Conclusion - THE ARROW AIMED BELOW THE AIRCRAFT !!!

                      Whoever writes about “Lucky Aircraft” does not have the slightest idea about physics or mathematics or about other simple matters taught in schools. The probability of a single shot from the ground, by eye, and even from these weapons on a flying plane, taking into account speeds and positions in space — below zero. Or 1 for many millions.
                      During the 2nd World War, one plane to get into another burst of several cannons / machine guns with a huge rate of fire and an incomparably higher initial ammunition speed than RPGs had to approach 50/100 meters

                        Are you sure that you have a level of knowledge to evaluate my level of knowledge and skills? You need to be more modest. For example, specialists in this field taught me theories of shooting at air targets, some with decent experience. Everything was in order with practice too.
                        Lucky, because the Afghans are mostly excellent shooters. If this one shot at an airplane, then practice let us down.

        RPG-7 shot speed 112-145 m / s

        Cruise shipments are not dumped. Rather, the speed of the aircraft is worth it. And the drop height is unknown, and this greatly reduces the chances of getting in, due to the reduction of the grenade at a distance. Plus the speed of the grenade is variable in distance. From LNG-9 there would be more chances to get there.

        Who is dropping cargo, near the ground itself, also at cruising speed? The speed was minimal, slightly more than the take-off, 300-350 km / h. In addition, the video clearly shows that they shot at all without any lead. when firing from a grenade launcher, they make a mandatory correction even for the wind, and here it is stupidly "with a finger in the sky." You can relate to the Afghan Mujahideen as you like, but they are experienced fighters. And yet, what and to whom did the Americans throw off there? It’s clear they won’t tell us.

    Hello.
    Sorry, that Mi 26 was not shot down from a grenade launcher. There exactly MANPADS.
    There was one episode in Dagestan - 1999 - PTRK - but the helicopter either managed to land, or it was taken off at an approach landing at minimum speed.
    The Czechs made a video. There, one of the senior officers died. This is when Karamahi. Botlikh, Tsumadinsky district ...... I don’t remember the details anymore.
    There were rumors about the shot down with the help of RPGs in the First War, but I’m not sure that it’s true - there were such rumors that .... :)))))

      It looks like some kind of computer toy. At what height was the drone to consider the S-130 barge to look so tiny, while a shot from a grenade launcher looks like launching a large anti-aircraft missile. The intermittent torch of the shot is also embarrassing, as rockets often look in toys.
      I do not presume to assert anything, but doubts about the veracity are very big.

      Some RPG flew far .... I doubt it, and the Americans did everything right.

      They would have done right if they had dumped from all their bases in their America and allowed the world to live and develop peacefully in accordance with its own rules, laws and traditions.

    "Come out one on one, we won’t beat on take-off - Maestro" With RPG-7, Hercules can be beaten only on take-off and landing, the rest is PR super duper Hercules. Type Soviet missiles do not take it. The question is. What for did Tram sign his agreement with the Taliban? So that his pepelats tried to wet with RPG-7?
    I tell you. We do not need to choose their prezik. We need to choose their congress

        It was the N-th day of self-isolation. In the morning, people went to the refrigerator, took out potions and inoculated all day. By evening, he was completely neglected!
        No offense! Himself so! wink

        Inoculation - (lat. Inoculatio vaccination)

        1) the introduction of pathogens of infectious diseases or vaccines in human or animal tissue;

        2) in parasitology - the introduction of insects and ticks of pathogens into the blood of humans or animals during bloodsucking.

      There is also an Igilovskaya riffraff, who understands that with the release of mattresses the Taliban will deal with them closely, and therefore have great interest in disrupting the agreements. The officials of the “Kabulistanites” have the same interest, who also understand that the Taliban will not be almond with them and will squeeze out power in Kabul as soon as the last American side hides beyond the horizon. So there are those who need this provocation in order to blame the Taliban.

    Although a missile flight is similar to an RPG-7 charge flight, the launch itself is not the same! In RPG-7, the main flare is not forward, but backward and looks as if with a gap into two parts.

    I have the impression that they didn’t shoot at all at the plane, but at the load or another target.

    If you look carefully, the firing is not on the plane, but on the dropped cargo. And I must say the shot passes a few meters. Which is good enough for a shooter. There were no goals to hit the plane.

    After the Mujahideen refused to return the Stingers allocated once by the US government, it looks really strange. Americans gave 80 thousand bucks for each MANPADS.

    It is necessary to take the lead, it is completely absent from the video. To get on such a “cow” is quite real, there were precedents.
