On May 5, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that Ka-52 attack helicopters of the Russian military’s aviation had destroyed a command center and several armored vehicles of Kiev forces in the framework of the ongoing special military operation in Ukraine.

“Army aviation pilots delivered missile strikes on a command center and a stronghold of the Ukrainian army. In their sortie, they wiped out a Ukrainian nationalists’ command center and several pieces of armor at the stronghold of Ukraine’s military,” the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry released footage of the attack, which took place at night time. The Ka-52 helicopters which took part in the attack were armed with 9K121 Vikhr anti-tank guided missiles and S-8 rockets.

The Vikhr, which was developed by the KBP Instrument Design Bureau, is guided by laser-beam riding. The missile has a range of up to 12 kilometers. It is armed with a 8–12 kg tandem HEAT [high-explosive anti-tank] charge that can defeat reactive armour and penetrate 1,000 mm of rolled homogeneous armour.

The S-8 is an 80 mm unguided rocket that is produced in a variety of subtypes with different warheads, including HEAT, high-explosive fragmentation, smoke, and incendiary, as well as the specialized S-8BM runway-destroying munition and the S-8DM fuel-air explosive variants. The rocket has a range of 2 to 4 kilometers.

Vikhr missiles and S-8 rockets are the main armament for Russian Ka-52 attack helicopters taking part in the ongoing operation in Ukraine.

Wonder how both returned to the base, usually Ukrainians just shoot them down with anti tank weapons. Another piece of propaganda where we can only see that a helicopter fired a missile into something. That something could be a tree or an empty fort. But then you just label it a command center and armored vehicles, and call it a day.

Didn’t you hear? Most of the nato weapons are duds. Western shysters getting rich by supplying old equipment. Still, it’s only Ukrainian and Russian lives right?

Simple Observations

Bandera bet on the German Nazis for his dream of establishing an ‘independent fascist state’, only to be snookered by the Germans, for whom ‘independence’ was never in the cards.

Now his followers are betting on the new crop of ‘liberators in name only’, somehow expecting a different result.

That’s the exact definition of insanity. The ukrop posters here fit that exact profile.

jens holm

Thats the Stalin infected USSR propaganda version only.

Poland defeated the West Ukriane state as well as the red army and took it.

He became radicalised nationalised and was main leader for killing a polish ministers and later on many more.

In those days many were nationalist and even fascists. The contrast was Stalin in the Molotov – Ribentrop dividing.

Even some few % in Russia of today know what happend in Ukraine by Sralin after Denikin lost there.

Florian Geyer

It would be perfect Karma if Poland attempted to reclaim Lvov and the Bandera gangs, whose ancestors brutally murdered circa 100,000 Poles in the period 1938 – 1945, and were to fight against Poland for their homelands around Lvov.

Both sides using NATO supplied weapons, LOL.

Red Admiral

Was thinking along those lines myself Florian. All UkraiNazis vacate Donbass, Odessa, Kharkiv and Nikolaev to “Verteidigung des Vaterlandes Banderstan vor polnischen undermensch”. It would indeed be Fate. In reversed maybe; as the Poles have no love for the Banderas even if they themselves are Nazis.

Reinhard Gehlen

Exactly what was done to Vietnam after the Second World War was ended: they expected their Independence after helping defeat the Japanese occupation of their and others land, only to be reoccupied by the Colonial Powers and then having to fight another 30 years for the freedom they were promised during the war. Millions were killed though, which made the Eugenics folks happy and billions were made by the arms and munitions makers.

Most of the Nato weapons are not duds at all. You are or should be.

I also will remind You, that most of it is gift and USA now is lend and lease. It seemes You as usual has no acces to facts or use them.

Its normal procedure here in Denmark we give away or sell older things. They all are kept and maintained well in programs. They are intact and fir for fight. Nothing is second class.

We have given many good things to the Baltics. They hardly has nothing and are poor. Here we also assist with about 800 well equipped modern soldiers and a F16 in 24/7 now and then(that 4 pr 24 hours).

We have given them anti tank weapons, grenades, wests, some night vision.

We also give them help for the civiles by red cross and other NGOs as well as we have about 30.000 half of them children here. They all go to school even its not perfect. We try to make enough of their women/mothers into teachers or translators.

We also buy used stuff Ourself. Our leopard tanks are upgraded second class from Germany.

Andrey

Usually, none of the ATGMS shoot down helicopters, there were only 1 or 2 cases.If you have more evidence, then post the links. If the cameras do not clearly see what the helicopters are shooting at, it does not mean that they are shooting at trees or empty buildings.

jens holm

I did not write this.

I wont even argue about the insanities told by Russian medias about losses. Its like debating qwith Putin in Russian TV.

Holms Jen

The fact that there is a single case is an embarrassment. And Russia got two cases. Speaks volumes of how incapable Russian army is.

jens holm

They dont just. But they have taken many of them.

Holms Jen

What is this sentence even supposed to mean on English?

kotromanic

Well to be honest Urkaine has at least as many command centers as Aleppo had hospitals according to western press. I guess russia is just trying what the west always does.

But the west is centuries ahead in lying and getting away with it.

You never read western media as they are.

You also dont get how the structures for free and many medias.

Aleppo didnt have many hospitals. It wa private clinics acting as hospitals because the real ones was bombarded a way or only had basement facilities.

´Most of us in west understood that. It does not matter Your kind bombarded them too. You even took the water.

Im sure Yor kind even got medals for it. Honor got redefined.

And yes come with it: I of course think americans are hero, when they do that.

the IR cameras on those K helicopters are either really bad, or the movies are edited on purpose. I could hardly see anything and i’ve watched several helo camera footage by now. Is it on purpose? The videos on Apaches 20 years ago in Iraq were a lot better

The maharaja

yes its been degraded. Most likely using western tech in them. They bought lic for Thermal image from France years back. More than likely (just me guessing) they may very well produce unlicensed versions etc . It is believed that Russia is behind the west in this tech so they will try and let that belief continue. True or not. It is to there advantage either way. Its also a transfer of the video to another video etc.

The videos with the Spetsnaz forces using TI hand held units is clear as it gets.

jens holm

You are right. Too much propganda and bad facts. Some might wonder if there are any facts.

Attack with helicopters at night, when they are hard to shot with manpads, are more efficient. But, a number of heli was shut down during conflict. I not number them, but I ask the Southfront documentarist for a comparison between number of Russian heli shut down by Ukrainians and number of heli produced by Russia from 24 February to present day. (separate by heli type).

BREAKING NEWS: Admiral Essen grigorovich class frigate has been targeted by Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missiles (modification of Kh-35U) or Harpoon missiels. Currently on fire and evacuation is ongoing. Essen was armed with 8 Kalibr, 24 BUK-M1-2 (Shtil) medium range missiles, TK-25-5 electronic warfare system, and 2 AK-630 CIWS from the 1970’s. And still failed to defend itself from sea-skimming anti-ship missiles. MAJOR UKRAINIAN VICTORY ONCE AGAIN. A country without a navy has eliminated a battlecruiser and a frigate. Imagine that.

US spy and radar jets are flying near Ukraine border for 24 hrs since 3 months ago to track all Russian army movement and communication and serve as communication and targeting relay for Ukraine. Russia should shoot those US jets down as an act of self defense.

The biggest problem of the banderapizdan nazi idiots is a medical pathological problem as I said many time before. There are a lot of factors behind that, like ethnogenesis areal of the hohol monkeys, historical events, DNA population degrade, etc……But the first of all are related with the post ww2 galicien syphilitic epidemics which was in Transcarpathia and around at about 80%. Off course syphilis can be cured and was cured there but clinically it leaves dangerous side effects and complications, mostly on the brain health. Just read an 40 years old scientific paper from a foreign magazine about the subject and for audience I put here an aproximative Google translate since I don’t know spanish: ‘The cause of downism and aggressiveness of the Galicians is the post-war epidemic of syphilis in Galicia, up to 80% of those infected. Doctors explain the similar makeup of the current generation of Galicians with genetic changes that occurred after the post-war epidemic of syphilis in Galicia. In some districts, Chervonogradsky, Sokalsky, the proportion of cases was almost 80%, which, by the way, also speaks about the general level of these people. After the Second World War, the epidemic was defeated, but even then experienced doctors predicted that the real horror was not the epidemic itself, but that due to genetic changes caused by syphilis, through syphilis, in a generation stupid and aggressive people will be born. By the way, in Lvov in those years there was a name-calling “French”, that is, one who had been ill with the “French disease” = stupid, freak, etc. It was said about those who were born from syphilitic mothers, of whom there were more than in general infection. .. Also, Western Ukraine is an area deficient in iodine, and a lack of iodine during the development of a child’s body leads to mental retardation, which is why the specific density of morons in this region is noticeably higher than in the central and eastern regions.”
