Military Review

Russian pilot told how he got away from a Stinger MANPADS missile in his helicopter

52

Russian army pilot aviation spoke about his actions during one of the battles as part of a special military operation in Ukraine. A guided anti-aircraft missile from the Stinger MANPADS was fired at his helicopter from a distance of about 800 m.


Russian officer:

The distance is small, the time to make a decision is a fraction of a second. I just knew that I had to survive somehow.

The pilot talks about shifting the helicopter into a weak left bank. The rocket went into the engines of the rotorcraft.

Pilot of the Russian Aerospace Forces:

Then, with a sharp maneuver to the right, he left the missile (MANPADS Stinger).

At the same time, the wingman, who was walking at some distance, having assessed the launch site, destroyed the calculation of the Ukrainian MANPADS by firing from an aircraft gun.

Russian pilot:

After this, the effect of the Stingers on my calculation did not occur.

In that battle, the crew of an attack helicopter of the Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed a ZSU, an armored personnel carrier and a mortar crew.


Thus, it is the professionalism of the pilot, the high level of training, and skills that make it possible to perform combat missions with a high degree of efficiency even in the conditions of the use of man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems by the enemy.

      From this interview: During the crossing of the Dnieper, about 15 launches of MANPADS were made on a group of helicopters. The air crews of the Russian Aerospace Forces, after firing off heat traps and performing anti-missile maneuvers, reorganized into two units and used the “fire carousel” tactics, inflicting continuous fire on enemy positions with small arms and missile weapons.

      - There was a very dense fire. They fired Stingers, counted 10-15 launches. We were the first at this airfield; no strikes had been made on it before. We noticed the tactics that our fathers used in Afghanistan, 8 helicopters broke up into 2 links of 4, which allows us to close the circle, to conduct constant fire from it at the enemy who cannot respond.

There, the lads of the "generals" of Russians are already burying packs, and the bill for downed planes is dozens a day, the turntables have generally ceased to count. It's downright scary crying, apparently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine approximately near Tyumen, Krasnoyarsk with Novosib in the blockade, Yekaterinburg - they are bombing ... people are tearing sheets on white flags, the kingdom of crooked mirrors.

          It reminded me of the situation, as during the Second World War the German "Wehrmachtbericht" covered the events. I read that even Goebbels went nuts from their optimism. The last issue was published on May 8, 1945, and it was written there that "everything is fine, everyone is great" wassat

    Taking into account the fact that rumors are becoming more and more active and louder about the understaffing of divisions and brigades of the Polish Army with contract soldiers with the aim of invading at least 4 western regions of Ukraine (Strelkov-Girkin often mentions this) or further, a formidable time is coming for the adoption of cardinal and fateful decisions by Putin regarding the future of the Russian people and the Russian state.
    No matter how pretentious it may look, but the invasion of the Poles into the west of Ukraine is a turning point in the deterrence doctrines that were adopted even at the signing of the START treaties.
    If the Poles send in troops, and we cover their positions or columns with aircraft or missiles, then, theoretically, at the behest of Biden and Co., Article 5 of the NATO Charter will come into force and Russia will be at war with them.
    And this is a question from several hours to several days - the exchange of massive nuclear missile strikes, anticipated by our strikes on places of border concentration of NATO troops and airfields with tactical nuclear weapons.

      No, Article 5 comes into play if they attack the TERRITORY of a NATO country .. If we burn the advancing logs in a zapukre, then no article .. And even in the case of attacks on Polish territory, not everything is so simple .. Although all these agreements and other garbage it only works in peacetime, when there is a war, no one cares about these particulars ..
      rs: And I said that Lvov and other zapukra should be burned in a thermonuclear fire so that all sorts of things do not climb .. It looks like everything is going to this .. But I repeat, I had to start with this ..

      in fact, if we "cover" them on the territory of Ukraine, no article 5 is valid. In any case, it shouldn't, and a possible joint NATO response will be "aggression of choice." An example is the story of the Turks when they entered and occupied territories in Syria and Iraq. the same Kurds (who, by the way, are supported by the Americans) are quite actively destroying the Turkish military, and the Syrians carried out operations against them. Although, of course, all this was very local, but the PRINCIPLE is important.

        The fact of the matter is that, someone would like Putin to accept Poland’s entry into the war with the Russians and calm down, they say: well, like, like in Syria, the Americans, it’s illegal to sit in the northeast and steal oil and Syrian gas and what?
        That's what they want, but if ours are hit by missiles at the Polish columns, they are, after all, NATO soldiers, and Poland flares up with "righteous anger" for the losses provoked by it, then no Fashington will hold them back when the Polish moments are trampled to the drain along with tanks and motorized infantry, continuing to lose both aircraft and tanks and infantry .....
        That's when Batsden and Co. will have a choice: or say - Poland outside of NATO acts by itself and NATO has nothing to do with Ukraine. Or, falling for allied ties and anger at the Russians, he will unleash a full-fledged Russia-NATO war on the entire "eastern flank", and then everywhere. And point!

    Stinger's crew is one man with a shoulder rocket. Shot and ran away. The rocket goes to the heat of the engine.

    What am I surprised at. How do these foolish Ukrainians not think about how much all these Stingers, Javelins, etc. cost. Well, consider this complex, this is a fortune. so grab it, take it to the same Poland and sell it, there the gangsters will tear it off with their hands. By the way, ours could also announce (through leaflets or something else) that a reward is paid for each unit. Surely there are many who want to sell.

      what is your problem? afraid of the psheks and other yuropians? it’s our own fault, it’s not us who are pumping up Ukraine with these weapons, but the farther it is from Ukraine and Russia, the better for us. And it’s better to pay for such a complex and be sure that it won’t kill any of ours, so it can also be used against them.
