Russian Mi-28 Lobs Unguided Rockets Towards Ukrainian Positions

Published 3 months ago

A mixed section of Russian attack helicopters fires unguided rockets in the general direction of Ukrainian positions in an unknown part of Ukraine.


For those of you who are wondering, we've covered this topic at length in other cockpit videos on the webpage. The primary purpose of this high-angle fire technique is to safeguard rotary wing aircraft from ground based MANPAD systems. The Russians and Ukrainians have both heavily been utilizing this tactic to fire from behind friendly positions where they are more in control of the ground. As a result, we've seen very little air-to-air combat as the pilots involved are almost never within firing range of each other due to the increased threat of surface-to-air weapons.


While we don't know where this video was filmed, we can tell it's a Russian pilot. We can tell this primarily because of the release source, which was an official Russian channel, but also in a vacuum we would be able to tell because the lead pilot appears to be flying one of Russia's Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters. You can see the second aircraft visible around :24 seconds into the video.
