Black Hawk helicopter shot down in Afghanistan using ATGM

32

It is reported that a helicopter was shot down in the south of Afghanistan. According to Western sources, we are talking about a Black Hawk helicopter, which allegedly belonged to the Afghan army.


The following statement is noteworthy: the helicopter was shot down by an anti-tank missile during landing. The American edition of The New York Times writes that the firing of the helicopter was carried out by the Taliban terrorist group (* banned in Russia). The material points out that "the Taliban did not use such missiles before." Moreover, there is no data on which ATGM was used when striking the Black Hawk.

The American press writes:

It is necessary to find out who is supplying the missile weapon the Taliban. It is necessary to take all measures and cut off the supply channels. This is very important for security in Afghanistan.

With reference to unnamed sources, it was stated that the ATGMs "were probably delivered to Afghanistan from Iran." Again, this word is probably.

At the same time, another version of the appearance of ATGMs by the Taliban is presented. In the United States, they recalled that at one time militants seized anti-tank guided missiles when attacking French troops. True, it was 12 years ago.

Why, then, is the US media not concerned with the question of how many captured American weapons the Taliban have, which are used against American servicemen, among other things? ..

Meanwhile, in the Arabic-language media, it was stated that American Marines could be aboard the downed helicopter.

    ATGM on a helicopter. Not bad.
    If there really were Yankees on board, then it's not a pity. There is no need to hang around anywhere.

      Gentlemen, the Americans have forgotten that they themselves created the Taliban .... and, by the way, the United States did not recognize this organization as a terrorist ..... And where are the weapons from? Let them ask their allies from Saudi Arabia, the Emirates and Pakistan

      Normal combat practice, large firing range, high accuracy.
      In 2014, helicopters of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Kramatorsk "landed" in the same way ...
      One thing is clear that now the Americans will start looking for an "Iranian" and "Russian" trace in this ...

        I could be wrong, but as if a helicopter from an ATGM was also shot down in Syria.

        This was hardly the first attempt, but the first successful. The Americans may again begin to claim that the GRU is behind the attack, which helps the Taliban by paying and supplying weapons. The "gallant American soldiers" cannot be killed by the "wild Taliban" without outside help. We look forward to similar news from Democrats and CNN in the near future.

          Most likely, the "gallant American soldiers" were not there.

      I so in Operation Flashpoint from RPG-7 "crocodiles" knocked out. The main thing is to choose the right moment of the shot.

        In Slаvianske, in May 14, two turntables of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were shot down from an ATGM, one from an RPG-7.

    RPG-7 helicopters were shot down in Somalia. I wish the Taliban creative success. I wish the Americans more coffins in a striped rag.

    that they themselves created the Taliban

    The Taliban was founded by Mullah Omar and is massive movement.
    The Americans could have something fussing there, toil with foolishness, but the Taliban were created by Muslims.

    ATGMs "were probably delivered to Afghanistan from Iran."
    And from where else, according to the American version, besides Iran and Russia, which are designated as enemies of the United States, can weapons be supplied? Maybe the Americans should go to the mirror and remember who supplied the Mujahideen with "Stingers" and paid for each shot down Soviet plane (helicopter)? ! 9 years ago, with their heads held high, they entered Afghanistan to "fight" terrorists and establish democracy (?), And as a result - the Taliban is flourishing, drugs with the help of the Americans flow like a river.

        dshk beter through and through, checked ... there was a double-barreled block on the block ... the cliff is resting ... (well, "cord" under the NATO cartridge and ours, not lokhlyatsky production) although the cord, too, is nothing like that, a bit too much, there are only tracers in five, not earlier it is necessary to put ...

    The Americans themselves taught the local tribes to fight with modern weapons. Let them get it. We are waiting for Hercules.
