Military Review

In the Chinese Sohu about the downed Russian Mi-24: "Any soldier from the calculation of air defense systems would have done the same."

97

In the military-thematic section of the Chinese information portal Sohu, a material has been published that is devoted to the strike inflicted on a Russian Aerospace Forces helicopter while it is in the airspace of the Republic of Armenia. Then, as a result of a strike with the use of MANPADS, two Russian servicemen were killed, one was injured. The Azerbaijani side literally in a few hours took responsibility for this situation, stating that the strike on the Mi-24 was wrongly inflicted.


The day before, Azerbaijani Ambassador to Russia Polad Bulbul-oglu made a statement that was criticized not only in Moscow, but also in Baku. According to the Azerbaijani ambassador, "war is like a war."

On the pages of a Chinese resource, the author writes that "the strike by an Azerbaijani air defense crew is understandable." In fact, in this regard, the author "keeps pace" with Polad Bulbul-oglu, trying to declare that the Azerbaijani military are guilty, but still "other culprits" can be found.

From Sohu Material:

Objectively speaking, the Russian side had to notify the Azerbaijani army when moving along the border with Azerbaijan at sensitive moments in order to avoid misunderstandings. And thus she (Russia) should also be held responsible for this incident.

Further, the author writes on a Chinese resource that Azerbaijan declares an ongoing investigation and readiness to punish those responsible. That being said, the author Sohu adds:

But any soldier from the calculation of the air defense system would have done the same.

"The same" is how? Any soldier in China would start shooting at a helicopter if it was in the airspace of a neighboring state? .. And, it turns out, by the same logic, any soldier of a state adjacent to the PRC can strike aviation, which is in the airspace of the PRC?

Thus, Sohu is trying to shift the responsibility, as they say, from a sore head to a healthy one.

        This editor, hey, has not left the covidle yet (and I want to eat - these are the materials that it misses (or maybe it has some kind of grant for it)).
        But in fact: for the past six months, China has been pouring such shit on Russia through this portal that one has only to wonder whether China (or the Sokhu portal) is our situational ally or is it more like today's Armenia in relation to Russia (sort of more make money on different vectors)?

And rightly so hydrox asks the question: what is this Soku and what are they even thinking? and given that China does not have such nonsense as "free press", this leads to the second question: what is China for us?

              Again, what some here call mudslinging can be constructive criticism from the Chinese point of view, or even harmless remark.

              A Russian helicopter was shot down by one belligerent in the territory of another belligerent.
              It would be more reasonable to ask how he ended up there. And why no measures were taken to prevent this from happening. What, in fact, the Chinese recalled.

                Apparently, this is an army helicopter from our base, which was accompanying a military convoy, most likely delivering ammunition ships (and weapons) to Karabakh.
                All this was a hundred kilometers from the battlefield and most likely the Azeri made a competent ambush, which was waiting for this particular column.
                And naturally, it was the turntable that was removed first: they work normally, of course - then you could do anything with the defenseless column ... Most likely, the convoy was driven into the territory of Azeria.
                Have you noticed that not half a word was said about the contents of the cargo of this column and its further fate?

                Yah...? It looks like you have some kind of mess, sorry ... Armenia did not participate in the war (as well as Turkey) ... as far as I know ... there were no hostilities on the territory of Armenia. And if they were conducted, I think, they would be conducted in the Baku region ... and not Shushi. And about China, you apparently did not understand ... a neighbor is not a neighbor, what's the difference, how can you say that all the rules, when the situation is essentially casus belli ... you cannot justify an attack on the adjacent territory of a country that is not at war with you.
                It would be more reasonable to ask how he ended up there at all
                ... as I understand it trolling? otherwise it is not clear to me ... you understand that the helicopter was over the territory of a sovereign state in the sovereign airspace of a country NOT PARTICIPATING in the conflict. HE HAD FULL RIGHT THERE IS!

                  This is your porridge, sorry. At the beginning of the conflict, Armenia launched a missile attack on Nakhichevan. And suspicious activity near the border provoked a backlash. For your information, Mi-24s are in service with the Armenian Air Force. Russia had nothing to do there.

                    The Ordubad region of the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan, which is cut off from the main territory of the country by a strip of Armenian territory, came under fire from a tactical missile of the Armenian armed forces from the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, the press service of the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported.

                First, read the question, and then you will write nonsense. Officially, no one attacked Armenia, and no one declared war on Armenia. The question was exclusively about the military actions of Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh and against the armed forces of the same Karabakh. Which by the way, Armenia itself did not recognize. The downing of a Russian helicopter over the territory of a foreign state, from the adjacent territory, is a one hundred percent "casus belli". Why Aliyev stumbled and ran to apologize.

      Sure. In case China was fighting with this state. By the way, this is what Sokhu writes about.

      But, indeed, how could Azeybarjan know that it was a Russian helicopter that was flying there, after all, the gunner was not hitting Russian territory at all?

      Well, why do we need to know the Opinion of the Chinese equivalent of Zen?

      Usually the opinions of "officials" are brought up (thrown in) through, to put it mildly, not authoritative media,
      before it was done through jesters.
      But any soldier from the calculation of the air defense system would have done the same.

      Author's question:
      "The same" is how? Any soldier in China would start shooting at a helicopter if it was in the airspace of a neighboring state? .. And, it turns out, by the same logic, any soldier of a state adjacent to the PRC can strike at an aircraft located in the airspace of the PRC ?

      The army in which the soldiers do this is called the Makhnovshchina.
      Therefore, during the investigation, they begin to establish who commanded the MANPADS operator, who gave the command. Why the decision was made to hit the air target. Otherwise, it will turn out like in the Wild West, shoot at everything that moves, and where something rustles and crawls.
      Earlier I wrote that the operator and the observation point operate in the area of ​​visual contact with the target, but the target data must be transmitted from the tracking station. In addition, the command must assess the situation, whether there is a threat from this air target.
      Regarding the notifications from the Russian side of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense about carrying out flights on the territory of Armenia in close proximity to the state border, it should be clarified whether there are agreements between the parties on the procedure for such interaction.

      For the Chinese: everyone imagines himself to be a strategist, seeing the battle from the side.

              Why did the Chinese commentary on the incident with our Mi-24 "hook" me? Well, I don’t consider China to be our ally or, at worst, a "strategic partner."
              China itself, like that monkey, borders on states that are clearly not good-neighborly, has mutual territorial and historical claims.
              A large number of weapons and personnel is not yet the main sign of military superiority and a guarantee of future victories.
              Over the past 50-100 years, I don’t remember Chinese commanders who would have conducted successful offensive / defensive (operational or strategic) operations, moreover, to be studied in military academies of other countries.
              I foresee statements about Peng Dehuai.

              Therefore, although China is the forge and granary of the Western world, it is not their friend. Except for Russia, no one will say a good word for China at present.

    If two countries are in a state of war, then to strike from the territory of their own country at the enemy, wherever he is - a common thing. After all, the manager of MANPADS might not know about the nationality of the helicopter. Armenia and Azerbaijan were de facto at war.
    Another thing is that we need to figure out what it was with our MI-24 - either really a mistake, or a planned provocation.

    Maybe / can't this is an interesting question. De facto there was a war going on there. China is not at war. And if he was and knocked down - he would be in his own right. Again, if it weren't for a third-party helicopter. This time. The fact that Azerbaijan took the blame upon itself, and accepted it almost instantly, without trying to justify itself, suggests that the Turks or their proxies could have shot down the helicopter. In order to disrupt the entry of peacekeepers and freeze the conflict. These are two.
    The Chinese author does not voice this version. Or a translation of this version has not been provided for our review.

    Any fighter, if they gave him a "gun", put him on the mountain and said - "there are enemies, you will see that they are flying towards you, kill", had to shoot down the turntable without waiting for it to arrive and kill him. And he is not obliged to know that the bosses there agreed on something. It was his superiors who had to tell him that it was not enemies who were flying and that they did not need to be killed.

    Objectively speaking, the Russian side had to notify the Azerbaijani army when moving along the border with Azerbaijan at sensitive moments in order to avoid misunderstandings. And thus she (Russia) should also be held responsible for this incident.

    Indeed, it would be better to be notified in advance, especially since the border of 1 km passes in total, and these 2 countries are actually in a state of war - this is the first.
    And second: it is not Russia that is to blame, but the officer who gave the order to accompany the convoy with one helicopter, leaving him without a chance to survive in the event of an attack with MANPADS. Apparently it was an old Mi-24 without any means of protection, even without heat traps.

    Well, in principle, right. You can, of course, make the calculation extreme and say that they and only they are to blame for this tragedy. And you can figure out who is really to blame for this. Our side, Armenian or exclusively Azerbaijani. There was a tragedy. Accident or malicious intent - this must be answered by the competent authorities.
    But still, this is more like a tragic accident, IMHO. There are questions that have not yet been answered.
    1. Why was there one helicopter and not a couple, as is usually the case.
    2. What did he do over the column, what functions did he perform. At night and alone
    3. Why was the landing of the peacekeepers in Yerevan, from where the columns had to overcome
    more than 200 km to the point of concentration. Moreover, the route runs at a distance of 0,8-1,0 km from the border with Azerbaijan, and although there were no intense battles there, the Nakhchivan region was shelled with "points" from the territory of Azerbaijan. That is, the column was led on the line of contact of two warring forces at night. What smart guy did this with his pumpkin? That, it was impossible to carry out the landing of the peacekeeping brigade at the airfields of Azerbaijan, of which there are much more in that area
    4. If everything was already "on the ointment", then why did the air traffic control of Armenia not give information to the Azerbaijani side about the helicopter flight within a pistol shot from the contact line ...
    5. Who even planned this tragic flight of the turntable? If it was believed that this is a war zone, then why did the helicopter not shoot traps in this zone ...
    Surely the specialists will be able to ask more questions, these questions are the questions of the delitant

    Now about the deliberate or not deliberate launch of MANPADS at the helicopter. To do this, it is enough to put yourself in the shoes of those guys who were sitting with MANPADS. A few hundred meters from you the territory of your enemy, with whom you are fighting. Night. The rumble of numerous engines gradually grows and an ANO of a helicopter going at low altitude is visible. And perhaps not only the ANO, but the helicopter also illuminated the track with headlights (as an option). They are going (helicopter and equipment) directly at you (there the track makes a turn in the direction along the border almost at a distance of 500 meters from the border. as in the daytime, it’s not there, it’s impossible to say where the helicopter is at a given time: over the territory of Armenia or has already invaded the airspace of Azerbaijan. Moreover, Russian helicopters have never flown there. Whose, according to the calculation, this helicopter could be “Only Armenian means the enemy.
    So, with a greater degree of probability, a tragic accident occurred, as a result of which two of our pilots died. And then conspiracy theories began: they covered Turkey, which specially shot down a helicopter. At the same time, not even taking into account the fact that the wreckage of the rocket ended up in our hands and it is not difficult to establish their ownership, down to which unit were missiles with such a number.

    Igor! This area is the contact line of two warring states. The statement that Armenia did not fight is in favor of the poor. From the territory of Armenia, it was precisely on the territory of Nakhichevan (Azerbaijan) that the "Tochki" strike was struck. And at least ONE of the launchers of the Tochka TV and Radio Company was destroyed by the Azerbaijanis with their loitering ammunition. This is, so to speak, a preface. Do you seriously think that the contact line, 250 km long, was absolutely unprotected? Perhaps there were no company-level units or BTGs there, but some strong points with MANPADS, ATGMs and mortars were for sure. Therefore, I personally am not surprised at the presence of MANPADS calculation there. Moreover, the route runs along the border at a distance of about 30 km. Then it goes deep into the territory of Armenia. Perhaps there were more serious air defense systems, but not necessarily that in this particular place. Or maybe in this place. But the helicopter was flying at a low altitude below the radar view level, so in this case it was only possible to shoot MANPADS

        The connection between the helicopter and the column is permanent. Rocket launch is noticeable. There are people designated as observers for the air situation during the passage of the column. Helicopter pilots are well aware of the capabilities of various air defense systems, including portable ones. The tactics of flight in the area of ​​possible fire has its own characteristics, including the shooting of thermal targets. And the positioning of the fuselage in the direction of the most likely defeat. The capabilities of MANPADS to defeat such a target are much less, even compared to a combat aircraft. (Two spaced enclosed engines). Have you seen the video? There are not MANPADS at all and the most difficult thing, according to Aliyev's immediate recognition. He just picked up the phone, dialed the headquarters in Nakhichevan and asked who fired at the Russian helicopter? And before that, Putin called him and asked who shot down the helicopter? And the report on the helicopter came immediately. And the peacekeeping mission immediately began. And everything is straight in a matter of hours.

    If you follow the strict letter of the law, then yes, an attack on the territory of another state and all that jazz. And if you follow common sense -
    1) Why was the movement not reported? Are there really no communication channels between Azerbaijan and Russia? After all, whatever one may say, Russia did not indicate its intervention in any way, and it is logical that notification of passes and spans is quite logical and possible (as the example of Syria shows us)
    2) Who chose the time in the middle of the night, when no visual identification marks are visible from the air or from the ground? I doubt that all of them were in blackout mode, that is, it was both visible and audible. It's 500 meters from the road to the border, and at night you can't figure out who is moving there and where. All over the world it is customary to inform other states about the change in the position of military units in the border zone, just in order to avoid such "situations". This is at least unprofessionalism, as a maximum - the slovenliness of the command, who gave the order to move the column
    3) A MANPADS shooter - he sits in a trench and does not have fashionable radars on which the border lines are drawn. Banal loss on the ground
    4) In the end, the wiring took place in the combat zone. Did the crew take self-defense measures? If not, then this is at least unprofessionalism, as a maximum - sloppiness. And if he did, then the question of their effectiveness arises in full growth and from this it starts to smell very bad for Rosoboronexport

    In general, all participants in this incident are interested in hushing up this blatant coincidence, which ended tragically. The shooter will never be found, the money for the helicopter will be paid, the Heroes will be handed out posthumously and that's it ...

      Well, they weren't even generous with the Heroes, only with Courage

    The fact that the Chinese author is utterly nonsense is undeniable. I wanted to dwell on another aspect. The Russian MI - 24 helicopter was essentially carrying out a combat mission. Accompanied and covered the convoy of Russian troops on the march. Everything seems to be clear. But I am only interested in one fact. For what reason was the helicopter shot down like in a training range? In such cases, certain measures are taken to counter MANPADS. For what joy do we need helicopters that do not know how to defend themselves against possible defeat? Here are doubts gnawing at me that following practically in the zone of armed confrontation, our helicopter "just flew". Are there that down-and-out suicides piloting a helicopter, or just do not care? Well, it doesn’t fit in my head that our helicopter was just shot down like that. I am not interested in the distribution of awards and gingerbread. I'm interested in who exactly did something unfinished again. That is why, after the downed SU-24, escort fighters began to take off, after the downed SU-25, they also began to make additional gestures to protect the aircraft from MANPADS. Now again a similar porridge? What was missing on the helicopter again? It seems like our army has changed quite seriously and rearmament is proceeding rather quickly. But God beat me, but in this case someone's frank indifference or just nonsense is clearly visible. In this case, the "human factor", which is boring to the point of blurring, is clearly traced. It is simply necessary to find the perpetrators and to screw up the whole form. Because of someone's carelessness or simply from stupid not knowing what and how, in what cases, people die. Technique to hell with her. But people .... Technique without a person is just metal junk.

    Last year, China celebrated with fanfare the 50th anniversary of the events at Domansky. This is about "shooting across the border".

    Judging by the amount of use of the term Casus belli, both with business and without business, the people gathered here are serious. And using this term, everyone thinks that they have not left the interlocutor a chance. laughing
    Just in case, Casus belli is a formal excuse to declare war.
