      no Well, it’s unlikely that you’ll roll off KPV or ZU-23 to take-off? Duuhi aren’t suicides - it’s not only difficult to roll up, you’ll go away, especially with the installation of the same raised turntables. Most likely, if they really failed, then the old way - they dragged a couple of Chinese RS quietly a couple, they are shorter than from Grada, and it’s easier to get it, put it on the prepared site for direct fire and set it on fire. The familiar thing is simple and tasteful . Certainly, it cannot be compared with a single, flip-flop, Vietnamese launch, but it doesn’t reach, doesn’t reach, so it’ll pat your nerves.

        Why are you negative? I also think that the shot is good. And I don’t feel sorry for the dead pendos. It was after their arrival in Afghanistan that Russia was swept by a wave of cheap drugs (sold at retail at a wholesale price on the world market), resulting in the deaths of dozens, if not hundreds of thousands of young children. It was they, the pendos who provoked a mess in Ukraine, as a result of which several thousand Russian people died.
        So the more they die in different parts of the world, the better for me and for all mankind. am

      Well then, what will they insist that he was shot down. No, of course, emergency gang .... laughing There, in general, the thought creeps in, that it’s not just 130 and AC-130, and the number of deaths is well direct, exactly the exact number. The crew is coming. Who admits that some bearded men in "sneakers", but "ganship" failed. Looks like the Yankees decided to shame the Taliban on a "ganship" ... but it didn’t work ... The Chinese (or others ...) MANPADS do their job well, in fact, they love such interesting sides. There, the number of IR sources of the hoo-hoo ... that's just the question, but the traps, what now they have is not in fashion? Or is it true that they put it on the ground with memory sticks smile

    Some kind of strange wording. But they could easily shoot down at landing approach from MANPADS. Something darkens the Americans. Probably do not want to tell the truth for certain reasons.

      “Our Mujahideen shot down a US plane in Jalalabad,” said Taliban spokesman Mujahid Zabiullah on Twitter.

      According to the agency, the Jalalabad airport was repeatedly bombarded during clashes between the forces of the Afghan army and the Taliban.

    Well, they knock down on the approach to the airfield, and on takeoff and landing. Sorry for the people.
