Armenia Claims It Shot Down Azerbaijani Helicopter With Fake Video

Donate

On September 29th, Armenia released a video purportedly showing the downed, burning debris of an Azerbaijani military helicopter.

However, a closer look the debris strongly resembles a downed Antonov An-2 single-engine biplane utility/agricultural aircraft.

The An-2 was designed as a utility aircraft for use in forestry and agriculture. However, the basic airframe is highly adaptable and numerous variants of the type have been developed; these include hopper-equipped versions for crop-dusting, scientific versions for atmospheric sampling, water-bombers for fighting forest-fires, flying ambulances, float-equipped seaplane versions and lightly armed combat versions for dropping paratroops.

Regardless, it is likely that the aircraft had crashed a while ago, and Armenia simply bombed the debris to make it appear as it was recent and a result of defensive fire on an enemy aircraft.

A screengrab of the video clearly shows that it isn’t even a helicopter that’s exploding in the footage.

Armenia has reportedly several hundred killed Azerbaijani soldiers, as well as dozens of destroyed armored vehicles, dozens of UAVs and more. This raises questions of how many of the other videos purportedly providing evidence are also faked.
