Thermal Cam: Attack Helo Rocket Launch With Impacts

Published Aug. 5, 2022

Interesting footage filmed through a thermal scope shows a Russian attack helicopter "lofting" unguided rockets toward Ukrainian positions.


The technique is significantly less effective than aiming directly at enemy targets, but it allows the aircraft to stay out of range of MANPADS and air defense artillery. This video is especially interesting because it shows the impacts of the rockets, giving the viewer an idea the effectiveness of the technique. Essentially the rockets are being used like a BM-21 Grad MLRS rocket barrage, although the helos rockets are much less powerful. While lofting rockets may be useless against point targets like individual vehicles, it can be useful for terrain denial and vehicle staging areas.
