Mi-25 Soviet-made continue to be the main force of the Syrian army aviationmaking a worthy contribution to the fight against terrorism, writes Messenger of Mordovia.

Mi-25 in Syria


Recently a photo of a Syrian Mi-25 armed with guided anti-tank 9M17P phalanx-PV missiles appeared on the Internet.



"Probably for the whole time of the conflict in Syria, this weapon first appeared, as they say, close-up. Although previously, such ATGMs from time to time flashed on video frames, which captured Syrian helicopter gunships flying in the sky, the author notes.



It is noted that “despite the venerable age (this helicopter version of the ATGM was developed at the end of 60-x), 9М17П are still quite dangerous weapons: they have semi-automatic guidance and are capable of hitting targets at a range of 4,5 km, armor penetration of missiles - 650 mm. "

        Glory to the Russian weapons! There is something to be proud of here. I would like to say so about our football, but after today ... it doesn’t work out. And gunsmiths are real miracle heroes who forge the independence of our country. And not only ours.

          Apparently a typo.
          It would be true Mi-35 - a modernized version of the Mi-24, including and for export.

    It is wonderful that Russian weapons (the same MI-25), manufactured many years ago, still show not only their qualities but also their merits. Good luck to the Syrian military.

    In total, 25 such machines were delivered to Syria, but unfortunately most of them were malfunctioning by the time the hostilities began. There were from 5 to 10 cars in service, according to military experts. Officially, our experts repaired most of the machines and I think they just didn’t stop at the repair. These machines will once again show their best side. good

      This is just a designation of the export option ... According to the performance characteristics, I think, they are about the same, the difference is only in the armament. I think aviation specialists will enlighten us now.
      Good day.

          On the basis of the Mi-24D, an export version of the Mi-25 was created, which differed in a slightly different composition of on-board equipment. The helicopter was intended for deliveries to states that were not part of the Warsaw Pact countries. The Mi-25 entered service with Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, India, Iraq, Cambodia, North Korea, Ethiopia, Cuba, Libya, Nicaragua, Peru, Yemen, Syria and Vietnam. In 1985, two Indian Air Force helicopters were captured by the Pakistani army. Both cars were carefully studied and circled by Pakistani and Western pilots. In April 1987, the Chadian armed forces captured three Libyan Mi-25s, one of which was sent to the United States.

    The techniques they have looked like typical Wahhabis are painful, if it weren’t for the Syrian Air Force sign on board I would have thought that ISIS had helicopters (as our smaller brothers say)

    It is important not when it is released or developed, it is important how it acts in modern conditions. A man’s fist also has a millennial age and has nothing else to roll on his forehead.
