Over the Pamir held anti-aircraft maneuvers Mi-8MTV and Mi-24P

Colonel Yaroslav Roshchupkin, assistant commander of the Central Military District, told the press that Russian helicopter pilots carried out a set of anti-aircraft maneuvers over the Pamirs (Republic of Tajikistan). Maneuvers were performed at low altitudes, taking into account the terrain relief. The message of Yaroslav Roshchupkin leads RIA News:

Helicopter pilots of the 201 military base deployed in the Republic of Tajikistan, developed combat use at extremely low altitudes using mountain relief and anti-aircraft maneuvers: a sharp climb with change of course. Transport and combat Mi-8MTV operated under the cover of a pair of attack helicopters Mi-24P.

Over the Pamir held anti-aircraft maneuvers Mi-8MTV and Mi-24P

According to the representative of the Central Military District, the flight at extremely low altitudes took place at a speed of about 250 km / h. At the same time, the height itself was about 30 m. This combination, taking into account active maneuvering, makes it possible to effectively use army shock Aviation in mountainous areas, even if the conditional groups of militants are armed with MANPADS of a certain type.

It should be noted that the aviation structure of the Russian 201 military base deployed in Tajikistan in September 2015 was reinforced by a helicopter group. This group is based around 30 km from Dushanbe - at the Aini airfield.

    Such trainings should be carried out constantly! And not when the thunder struck.

      That's right! The army must prepare for war. That's why it is an army. The more training, the easier it is in battle. And the fact that our helicopter came under fire in Syria is not the fault of the pilots. or 28 should have. Then the Turks would have "accidentally" got "good shots"

        It is right. But I want to note the following. Unfortunately, in recent years, the outdated concept of "maneuvers" has come to be identified with teachings. And in this article, the information was generally illiterate! In this case, "maneuver" is the pilot's actions, expressed in the evolutions (there is such a term) of the aircraft (helicopter), aimed at evading the enemy's weapons. In the KBP (combat training courses) of various types of aviation, it is provided for the implementation of anti-missile (PRM), anti-aircraft (MZM), anti-fighter (PIM) maneuvers. The author of the article should have written that crews performed anti-aircraft maneuvering. That will be right.

      What are you carrying? Here we are talking about maneuvers from missiles. And in Syria, he was damaged by the fire of small arms. Or do you think you can dodge each bullet? PSO is always a risk in enemy territory. And if the desired object is noticed, you have to land, and at the time of landing, the helicopter is just the target as in a dash.

    Apparently, many helicopters will be needed on the Tajik border. Not far off is the story of the bombs from Afghanistan ...

    ... hmm .. hope for God, but don’t hurt yourself .. mountain war is more complicated than on the plain ... maybe such training will save more than one life in the future ..

    I think it is not necessary to connect this event with Syria. This is a regular combat training program. I don’t understand what the news is? This is an everyday job.

      I agree, the pilots are not sitting idle, this is an ordinary everyday work. On the Pamir mountain system, air is discharged, even in the lowlands of about 4 thousand meters above sea level. Professionals are recruited there, among them there are many Afghans. They themselves can teach anyone.

    Of course, this is just working out combat elements in mountain conditions at low altitudes.

    I have noticed for a long time that all Russian Mi-24s in Syria fly without regular screen-exhaust devices that reduce heat radiation from the exhaust of engines and thereby reduce the risk of hitting a missile with a thermal homing head, especially in combination with other protection measures. In combat conditions, these devices were quite justified, and in Afghanistan they were sometimes removed only to reduce the weight of the car, since they had to fly a lot in the mountains (although the gain is doubtful). Even at the victory parade in Moscow, they were installed. And in Syria, what is the reason for their absence?

    In fact, from the missiles (except the most advanced) the best
    throwing out heat traps helps, not maneuvers.

      PEAKS (heat traps) are used to protect against infrared seeker. And from ordinary anti-aircraft guns or from SAM with other types of GOS - just a PZM.

      By maneuvers in this article was meant the development of flights at extremely low altitudes with an envelope of the terrain. It is simply written not quite correctly and correctly.
