Islamists shot down a Libyan Air Force plane

42
A Libyan fighter who struck Islamist targets near the city of Benghazi was shot down by terrorists from an unidentified anti-aircraft gun, reports RIA News Post commander of the Libyan Air Force Sakra al-Jarushi.




“MiG-23 came under attack from an anti-aircraft gun near Benghazi on Friday. The pilot managed to eject and land safely, ”said the commander.

“We are currently finding out whether the terrorists got a new weaponcapable of shooting down planes, ”he added.

The agency recalls that after the overthrow of the head of state Gaddafi in 2011, “Libya is going through a period of acute crisis; a dual power arose in the country: on the one hand, the parliament elected in general elections, sitting in Tobruk in the east of the country, on the other, the pro-Islamic General National Congress in Tripoli. ” A number of districts are not controlled at all by either of the other governments.

          The Libyan Air Force, however, like the Syrian Air Force, is working from low altitudes to increase the accuracy of bombing.
          Ready, for everything, of course you need to be - but that's not what you thought.

      There, the MiG-23 was shot down from those that pensioners from one of the ARZ repaired for Haftar.

      Recently shot down in the same area MiG-21, also from among the repaired.

      Here he is handsome.
      Huge. The black. Angular. The MiG-32 came straight out of the American nightmares of those years, as a premonition of Soviet aerospace superiority. A long-range supersonic interceptor, the "fire fox" could do anything and a little more, from ultra-low altitudes to its ceiling of thirty kilometers. Its speed at afterburner reached Mach five, anti-radar coating and a special design ensured stealth. The main highlight was the weapon control system, which was triggered by the pilot's brain impulses, theoretically providing instant response.

    Something was shot down. It is stressful that something was shot down at all. Either they got something new in air defense from our sworn "partners", or the savages were wildly lucky.

      Twice in less than a week.

      On Monday, the restored 6132 board fell - the pilot survived, hid for a day from well-wishers, after which he was transferred to Abraq Base.

      Today is another.

      So recently, the Saudis gave them a present. Allegedly, in an unequal battle, I had to leave the warehouse with good air defense equipment. So the result is already visible.

    Militants shot down a MiG-23 plane of Libyan government troops, which bombed Islamist positions in Cariunes, northwest of Benghazi in Cyrenaica, France Presse reported on February 13.

    The SITE Intelligence Group reported that Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for destroying the aircraft.

    Libyan military sources said the pilot was able to eject from a damaged plane.

    On Monday, February 8, another MiG-23 of government troops crashed, bombing the positions of IS fighters in the Derna region of Libya. Libyan authorities claimed that the plane crashed due to a technical malfunction.

    Yes, and probably in the anti-aircraft guns and shells were. By the way, about low altitude. The anti-aircraft gun of the WWII period was firing its semaz at 10 km in height.

      For the Libyans, the coolest is our S-60 (5 km). So most likely the plane was being watched at low altitude by numerous "free shooters".

        Dear, it would be better if they kept silent, Libya had S-200, S-125, Osa, Osa-AKM, Kvadrat, Strela-10 & quo
        t;, about 3000 anti-aircraft missiles, including Igla, French Crotal complexes, and a large number of barreled artillery, the aircraft fleet consisted of up to 150 aircraft, taking into account the chaos in the country, everything is resold from one grouping to another, of course something destroyed NATO, but much remains

        In Vietnam and Afghanistan, planes and helicopters were also shot down from small arms and anti-aircraft guns. Plus, the Libyan MiG-23, most likely, was piloted by some sick Islamist with a "take-off-landing" level of training.

    About MANPADS not a sound, could "cut down" and from the ZSU pulleys, and even from the KPVT, with massive use, and if the pilot "went too far" and tried to work from low altitudes at low speed. The Vietnamese used such anti-aircraft "ambushes" back in the 60s, and even managed to shoot down Phantoms until the striped-eared ones understood what was the matter. When a hundred barrels open fire on an aircraft that is "out of hand" from impunity, there are a lot of chances to hit the target. Single target, many barrels, lethal distance - why not hit?

      About PZRK, the pilot survived, it means he reported that they shot down with barreled artillery, although there are a lot of things left in warehouses in Libya, but the stereotyped actions of aviation can easily lead to even greater losses, the militants learn the same and have experience, definitely need to be changed ways of reconciliation of aviation and, above all, reconnaissance of targets, routes, by the way, by the way, they could merge the flight route, here is another task

    What’s what and in Libya after the fall of the Gaddafi’s government, all that’s left is it’s just collapsed, the army bases and warehouses were in the hands of anyone ... what of them remained, and only Americans knew what moved to tighter Syria.
    Specialists ... there is an opportunity to find, after the collapse of the army, they haven’t gone anywhere ... but they can only do what they can. They do not want to voluntarily force.
