    Yes, the "Alligator" in this armed conflict managed to show itself in all its glory ... An excellent car.

      After the operation, the demand in the world for Bayraktars will drop sharply, and the demand for Ka-52s will be fucking.

        It would be nice ... and it would be even better if countries could resist US pressure on such purchases

          You also need to think about who to sell and who not. And on what terms.

        For your army, you would need to erase three more Ka-52s

        And what about the "old" ones? We will use until we completely switch to new ones. As the Secretary General of the CPSU gang once said: "The economy should be economical!" good

        Can you tell me what analogues of "Whirlwind" are in the West? LMUR and Hermes, this is interesting, but is there an urgent need for them now? LMUR does not hurt, but is not always necessary. If the Whirlwind is enough, why waste a heavier and more expensive rocket? hi

          Think far, comrade! No. I did not mean an urgent need, but "work out"! Additional tests in combat conditions will not hurt! Moreover, the level of hostilities, the military organization, the "mass character" of the troops is different than in Syria! PS There are no direct analogues of the "Whirlwind" in the West now ... they consider this method of guidance outdated and of little use for waging war with a high-tech enemy!

            In the west, there are no analogues of the "whirlwind" in terms of the combination of range and speed. And for LMUR in "Ukraine" there are no targets, and it is not guaranteed that the missile has been fully tested at the test sites by our combatant pilots.
            And in the West, quite recently, it was believed that Russia's hypersonic missiles were cartoons. And who was right? laughing

      Great car.
      Morally old, up to the modern shock one there is not enough at least the 360 ​​radar and the "lined and forgot" missiles for it

        We have all the rockets "lined - forgot." Launched, lined the bastards with a direct hit and forgot that they even existed.

      The alligator is good, no words, but the video, sorry for the prose, does not correspond to the level of the helicopter, when will ours learn to make decent videos. All you need is a desire, a little talent and a couple of video processing programs.

      exactly, that's just very little information about the use of MI-28.

        Yes, they are modestly silent about the "Night Hunter" .. Well, in the end, maybe it is used according to the name - in reconnaissance missions .. and there is really no need to show the result to the general public there.

        She's practically non-existent! Mi-8, Mi-24 - they constantly flicker, but the 28th is not visible

    Question to the author: how do you know about hundreds? The statistics of sorties and hitting targets are not yet publicly available and cannot be yet. And from the available videos, you can count a dozen

          Maintains statistical records. My friends live here, one at one airfield, the other at another. So, if you wish, without even raising your head to the sky, you can count the number of flights per day.
