Ka-52 Targets and Hits Ukrainian Armor

The Russian Ka-52 attack helicopter continues to prove its worth as an air asset for Russian ground forces as another video has been released showing multiple strikes at stand-off range against Ukrainian armor.


While it cannot be confirmed from this video, Russian sources are stating that this video shows the destruction of a Ukrainian Leopard 2A6 and a Ukrainian Bradley infantry fighting vehicle. At the announcement of these platforms being moved into Ukraine, we specifically stated that the main threat to these systems in Ukraine would be the Russian Ka-52 attack helicopter which is outfitted with advanced anti-tank guided missile systems that can strike from outside of the range of most MANPAD systems.


So, while we're unable to visually confirm the identification of the armor in this video, it would make sense for the Ka-52 to be specifically targeting that armor on the ground. As it stands right now, the Ukrainian possess very little that can hit the Ka-52 if it remains at stand-off range and in the protection of their own ground-based air defense systems.
