    An indiscreet question, how can one master the experience? In my opinion, experience is something that has already been mastered. hi

      Everyone is allowed through Syria anyway. And the desire to "express" is too late after the oath. Thank God about the cases with the "refuseniks" is not heard.

    During a practical action rally, combat helicopters dealt an air strike using unguided air missiles at ground targets denoting tanks, armored personnel carriers and vehicles of a conditional enemy. In addition, the crews of transport-combat helicopters worked out a tactical landing.
    The exercises involved more than 10 helicopters and over 300 military personnel and support units, spent more than 60 unguided S-8 aircraft missiles, destroyed over 20 different targets

    The bottom line: the crews worked out a NAR strike on the company tactical group. On average, 1 helicopter released 6 NAR (total consumption - 3 blocks). Guided weapons were not used.
    If it were in a real battle, helicopters would be extremely bad. For the RTG must have at least some anti-aircraft cover (MANPADS + cannon-machine gun weapons of combat vehicles). And the effective firing range of RTG anti-aircraft guns is greater than the range of the NAR. And no extremely small one on the route will save here - because for the use of NAR the helicopter must rise. If the enemy has at least some military air defense and communications, then 2/3 of the barrels and the PTG MANPADS will look into the helicopter approach sector.
