“The destruction of the facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was carried out from a launching position at a distance of up to 6 kilometers using 80 mm S-8 unguided aircraft missiles,” the publication says. During the combat mission, the crews completed the task successfully, the defense department highlighted.
It is observed that the pilots approach the combat zone at an extremely low altitude, skirting the terrain. This allows crews to remain undetected by enemy air defense systems.
A defense system installed on the helicopter warns of a possible attack and also suppresses the warheads of missiles already fired.
The crew commander of the Ka-52 helicopter with the call sign “Strela” said that it was attacked from the ground more than once, but the enemy never achieved its goal. “The Ka-52 helicopter has no defects and simply has no equal in the sky,” the military officer emphasized.
