Flight of Mi-24 attack helicopter at extremely low altitude filmed in Libya

35

Western observer David Budd reports the appearance of Russian (Soviet)-made attack helicopters in the skies over Libya. As it turns out, we are talking about the Mi-24 rotary-wing aircraft. These helicopters, according to Budd, appeared in the skies over Benghazi, a city controlled by Marshal Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army.


According to the latest information, Mi-24 helicopters are taking part in the rehearsal of the military parade. It will be held in Benghazi, and units and military equipment of the LNA will participate in it.

During the rehearsal of the military parade, the Mi-24 flew at an extremely low altitude in the direction opposite to the direction of movement of ground vehicles. At the time of the flight, dozens of army off-road vehicles were moving across the territory allocated for the rehearsal. Such pickups were actively used by the army of Khalifa Haftar in hostilities against the army of the so-called Government of National Accord (Unity) of Fayez Sarraj, actively supported by Turkey. Heavy machine guns or ZU (anti-aircraft guns) are usually installed on pickups.

At the moment, there are no battles between the LNA and PNS. The parties to the conflict agreed to a truce. At the same time, it is known that the PNS troops were going to move to the east of the country in order to take control of Benghazi, but they stopped.

Blue indicates the territory of control of PNS, red - LNA


The reason was the formidable statement by the Egyptian authorities that if the militants on the side of the PNS move "even a meter" east of Sirte, Cairo will enter Libya tank division.

          Again, the magazinewives distinguished themselves, as the other day!
          They are trying to introduce into the phraseological military circulation the idiocy parameter of the helicopter's flight altitude as "extremely low" - to get away and not get up! laughing

      And at first I read the headline, as "The flight of the Mi-24 attack helicopter at extremely low altitude was filmed in Latvia "- well, I think, the mayor of Riga is already hanging the flags of Russia, Belarus, the USSR in full, and to make his adherence to principles convincing, also portraits of Putin on the walls of houses just in case ... But no! It's still Libya, but the mayor of Riga shouldn't relax ... laughing

              I envy ... Automatic mirror ... 200 with something rubles .. But - the family was then already, I did not allow myself. Eh, time ... you wrap a camera with a cassette in a jacket, put your hands in your sleeves - and fill it up. You don't always come up to the "objectors" with an impudent face - they could have sent them. lol

    Yes, beautiful and dangerous, but beautiful. And a parade of pickups, well, that ... Unless it's a parade in the enemy's capital. In the meantime, Egypt, Wagner and other forces saved Haftar, and his French friends with their business, from complete failure, given that they were standing at the capital, which they could not take.

    If Egypt introduces tank troops, then Egypt will have losses.
    The NTC needs to act urgently to make the country unified.

      Toyota War 86-87 After the defeat by Chad, the Libyans began to change to pickup trucks. And not only them. Mobile, relatively cheap.
