Training Ukrainian air defense on their own helicopter hit the frame

The militants of the Kyiv regime are training to handle the American AN / TWQ-1 Avenger air defense systems in “as close to combat conditions as possible”, using their own helicopter for this. The footage shows how the air defense system operator accompanies the target, which is used as a Ukrainian helicopter.


The US authorities first announced the supply of the Ukrainian army with the AN / TWQ-1 Avenger air defense system last fall. With these air defense systems, it is planned to strengthen the western NASAMS and IRIS-T air defense systems already at the disposal of Kyiv. The AN / TWQ-1 Avenger complexes are highly mobile and can be integrated with other air defense systems. In total, four such installations were transferred to Ukraine.



AN / TWQ-1 Avenger was developed in the 1980s and is in service with the armies of the United States, Bahrain, Egypt, Taiwan and Chile. The main armament is two FIM-92 Stinger rocket launchers, and the secondary is represented by a 12,7 mm Browning M2 machine gun.

The complex is also equipped with its own radar station, infrared camera, optical sight and laser rangefinder. Avenger is capable of hitting targets at an altitude of 0,5-3,8 km and a range of 0,5-5,5 km, while it can move towards or in the direction of the target.

It is assumed that the supply of Western air defense systems to Kyiv is unlikely to be limited to AN / TWQ-1. It is likely that in the near future, the American MIM-104 Patriot air defense systems, as well as other military equipment that has already arrived in the German port of Bremerhaven, will be delivered to Ukraine.

        Exactly, until the last second of the video, I hoped to see a rocket launch on a propeller wing.

      Back in Soviet times, as a training for manual escort operators and guidance officers, at least S-125, civil aircraft flying by were used as training targets. We took them for escort, and did not even notify them, they have their own tasks, we have our own. Essno without launching real missiles.

        well, sharovary managed to fill up the civilian Tupolev during the exercises - it was the case under Kuchma. If I'm not mistaken - AK Sibir, flight from Tel Aviv. The board was shot down over the Black Sea.

          It was so. The missile of the S-200 complex redirected to a contrasting target and hit it at the range limit.

          So this is a feature of this air defense system. She likes to lose a target and then find a random one in the search area. Silt in Syria can be recalled, which was also shot down by the S-200.

            There's a murky story that seems to have happened. The court considered the timing of events, according to which the S-200 illumination radar was turned off immediately after a miss on a training target. It remains unclear how the missile nevertheless hit a civilian airliner almost at the limit of its range, and even without radar illumination.

        On June 30, 1962, one of the air defense units conducted training launches of anti-aircraft missiles in the Magansk region of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, and struck a civilian Tu-104 - 76 passengers and 8 crew members were killed.

        I heard about this incident in the USSR, and it is still unclear how it happened - according to an unofficial, but accepted version, one of the missiles, having lost its target in the conditions of passing through a thunderstorm front, redirected to a civilian aircraft and hit it on the left side .
        But neither the S-75 and S-125 "Neva", which were then at the Soviet air defense, did not have a homing system.

        [quote used civil aircraft flying past as training targets.] [/ quote]
        All right. This was called CFS (system functioning control). On the S-200, this was done in conjunction with the R / Technical Troops (RTV). Target designation (TsU) from them was issued to the ZRV complex - the raster of the R / locator beam was much wider. The exception is for highway "foreigners". In order not to "shine" their location and frequency, they simply filmed the "high" from the stations, just in case (the corridor, height and time of the "foreigner" were known in advance). Nothing out of the ordinary - just checking the systems.

          It was called KFS

          The S-125 guidance officer, who had not trained for whatever reason, I don’t remember how many weeks (but the official vacation was longer than this period) could not be admitted to combat duty. To resume admission, he had to successfully accompany X (I don’t remember exactly how many) training goals, of which Y (again, I don’t remember how many) had to be real, the rest in the simulator mode. Where can you get real ones? So they used civilian planes flying past on their own business.

      Maybe after a year you can stop calling the Ukrainian military militants?
      And then somehow it turns out awkwardly for a whole year we are fighting against some militants and we can’t cope in any way.

      Militants of the Kyiv regime

      1. As far as I understand, Russia has not denounced the recognition of Ukraine as a state, and Ze recognizes U. as the legitimate president.
      2. Russia is negotiating with Ukraine (grain, etc.)
      3. Ukraine, as recognized by all (and no others) has armed forces
      4. These forces conduct air defense training.
      Where and by what body the author gave rise to the "militants" is a mystery

        Apparently under the impression of a video from the AN / TWQ-1 Avenger air defense system, most of all similar to a self-made junk jihad mobile. Yes

          And what to call this Zil-Crocodile, which I don’t know where they pulled out and sent to the assault groups, instead of the BMPT, probably. Why, the gun has no analogues in the world.


          One to one Jihadmobile. At the same time, in the country of origin, vehicles with this weapon system are much more thoughtful and the chassis is more reliable. And then this Zilon is brittle for any reason.

          Thanks friend. Old. I'm dumb.
          But it's also impossible.
          Otherwise, the author justifies the ATO Poroshenko.
          Well, what kind of "terrorists" are there.
          If only the definition was respected.
          And V. Grubeik (a very worthy person and doctor) - who?
          Sounds like Che Guevara to me.
          And I agree with the idiot author: a terrorist, a bandit.
          Stupid people broadcast noodles to the weak-minded, do it clumsily and through the opus.
          and what? Razi so you can win?
