A Russian Mi-35 military helicopter crash-landed in northeastern Syria on February 28.

First, Kurdish media claimed that the helicopter crashed northwest of Tel Tamra between the villages of Rakhaniya and Kasimiya, two kilometers from the Russian military base. These reports claimed that one of the crew members died.

Later, the Russian Defense Ministry released a statement shading light on the situation. According to the statement, the Mi-35 helicopter made a forced landing in the area. None of the crew members died or received injures. The crew was already evacuated.

According to the initial assessment of the situation, the helicopter was not subjected to enemy fire. Therefore, the technical malfunction is the main version.

Looks like a real hard landing.

I wonder what was caused by the landing and what was caused by the salvage. My guess is that the ones that picked up the helicopter isn’t trained for helicopter recovery and made more damage to it than was there before but at the same time i think that most of the damages was caused by the landing.

My guess is it hit a power cable.
