“The crew of the Ka-52 reconnaissance and attack helicopter, having opened the advance of the armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine under the cover of a forest belt, attacked the armored object with high-precision weapons. As a result of an accurate hit by a guided missile, the armored personnel carrier with the crew was completely destroyed,” the Russian Defense Ministry commented.
We have repeatedly retold the stories of army aviation pilots who flew hundreds of sorties during NMD. All of them unanimously declared: Ka-52 is the best in its class! The hero of the video of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, the commander of a helicopter with the call sign “Master”, was no exception. He is really proud of his rotary wing machine, which has been repeatedly tested in combat missions.
“The Ka-52, armed with anti-tank guided missiles like the Whirlwind, solves many tasks on the battlefield to destroy the enemy’s armored vehicles,” the “Master” comments on the footage of combat work. “Therefore, the Ka-52 quickly made anti-advertisement for Leopard tanks and other vaunted equipment.”
The crews of our Ka-52 reconnaissance and attack helicopters, dubbed “crocodiles” by NATO for their predatory disposition, destroyed several targets in a sortie today. As soon as they peek on the horizon, they hover in the air and inflict precise attacks with guided missiles on the columns of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. They burn the first and last combat vehicles on the way through the minefield, and then on the “carousel of fire” they strangle the “leopards” like blind kittens. Pilots work alongside scouts, drone operators, and gunners.
In fact, not many NATO predators were able to survive the meeting with the Russian alligators. These battlefield fights forever dispelled all myths about the superiority of Western weapons.
Each of our fighters, whether he is a pilot or an infantryman, a paratrooper or a sailor, is confident in the strength of Russian arms and is absolutely convinced: victory will be ours!
Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu recently praised defense plant labor collectives for their heroism, noting that “deliveries of Ka-52 combat attack helicopters have increased 2-fold and Mi-28 3-fold.”
