Russian Ka-52 Attack Helicopter Crashed In Syria. Two Pilots Died

FILE IMAGE: RIA Novosty

A Russian Ka-52 attack helicopter has crashed in eastern Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on May 7.

The incident took place during a planned flight. Two pilots died. The bodies of the both pilots were found and delivered to the Khmeimim air base.

According to preliminary data, a technical failure may have been reason of the crash.

“When carrying out a planned flight over the eastern regions of the Syrian Arab Republic, the Russian Ka-52 helicopter crashed. Both pilots were killed,” the Russian military said in a statement. “The cause of the incident could be a technical malfunction.”

On May 3, a Russian Su-30SM fighter jet crasshed off the coast of the Syrian province of Latakia resulting in the death of two pilots. The May 3 incident was also caused by a technical failure, according to preliminary data.

    Crashed or knocked down?
    Hopefully those pilots have sent to hell so many possible terrorist roaches before giving their precious lives to the service of Syria and in defense of humanity itself in the face of so much perversity and evil plans of the Americans and their puppets for the whole region…

    • Rob

      Lebanon, Syria and Iran should have to be alert because the Israeli migrants aims are not look so good and can commit crime by insane airstrike.

    • John Mason

      Not wrong, it is strange and too coincidental, this and the recent SU makes it rather suspicious.

    • ATTILA

      GOD bless the hands of the fighter that shot down the helicopter and sent the two russian pilots to hell, to serve as prostitutes for the devil (after all this is the mission of all russians: b-come good prostitutes, right?).

          Learn English u stupid rassian troll…You still have time, B4 u follow the 2 rassian idiotic pilots to Hell.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        I think I understand your pain very well, my son.
        If I’m not mistaken, you must be some bastard weepy son of one of the last damn terrorists sent to hell by the Russian helicopter, right?
        I’m sorry to tell you that your damn terrorist father would never come back from the well-deserved hell where the Russian pilots sent him, and that no matter how much stupid and nonsense you write here in your grief, that will never happen.

        • ATTILA

          I understand you are the son of a russian prostitute. She raised you in a brothel, where wealthy Arab emirs had fun with her and probably u2. That’ s why u hate Arab so much. So u had a bad childhood. But if you repent and accept Allah as the true GOD and savior and Mohammad as his only and true profit, your grief will end and you will find a new meaning in life. Rassia is damned by GOD Himself for it was prophetized in Ezekiel 38-39 that the king of the Rus will move from the North to the mountains of Israel to fuck himself. And this is becoming true as Putin has got his divorce and now Medmedev is gonna get his, so the two of them will marry in the Devil’s name…Now get outtahere.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Then I was right about you at the end.
            My previous comment hurt you enough to deserve a so nice answer from you :)
            Even though you do not like me very much, I wish you consolation and a lot of resignation to the blessed assassination of your terrorist assassin father
            by those two Russian heroes, makers of terrorist bastards orphans,
            including you of course, I fear.

          • ATTILA

            Believe it or not, I consider you a human, and all humans are brothers. I am trying to save you, hence my answers to your stupid comments. To be saved u have to see the truth. There are no russian heroes I am afraid. There are russian drunks, for they either did not see the missile coming in, or were so drunk that they crashed the helo themselves. So drunk they cannot aim straight, so it is questionable whether their bombs and rockets actually hurt anyone. See the truth my friend, repent for your sins, bow into Allah and His true prophet Mohammad and be spared from His wrath. Cuz ur russian friends are about to immigrate to Hell to serve as prostitutes for the Devil himself. Repent now, or you will go along with them.

    • Rob

      Russia should now start serial production of SU-57 fighter jets and develop it in blocks like block-1, block-2, block-3. Increase efficiency of jet engines to new high levels where no other engines can reach.

    • neil barron

      Though resignation is out of context.

    • 888mladen .

      It must have been shot. K-52 is the only chopper in the world who has 0-0 ejection seats with rotor blades coming of before the seat has been ejected. Why sending single chopper without and fixed wing fighter escort or another chopper?

  • Aldric V

    4 pilots in few days. Escalation’s coming….

    • ATTILA

      Nope. It’s just that the idiots have gone to work.

      The truth is everything is possible and anything can happen at anytime and without any prior notice, in that already strange war in Syria, including what you comment of course,
      taking into account that day after day that conflict is becoming more and more swampy,
      I fear my friend.

    • Manuel Flores Escobar

      that was an accident..I remember during first gulf war USA lost 23 aircraft and helicopters in one month as consecuence of tecnical failure!

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Maybe my friend, and only maybe, I fear.

        • jerrydrakejr

          It’s all a percentage. The statistics calculated the average time between the two aircraft failures or the average number of missions between the two aircraft failures. Compare the number of Russian aircraft flights with these data and, that is, no conspiracy. For the same reason it is very possible that the number of lost aircraft due to breakdowns during the first gulf war is correct because the coalition had a huge number of flights.

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            Syrian air force old Mig & Sukhoi have the same number of flights during 7 years that US coalition during one month in the first gulf war!…SAF have lost 10 fighterjets as consecuence of accident…while USA coalition with modern jets and flying high without extreme manouvres lost 16!…

          • Joe Dirt

            Syrian AF is shit!

          • World_Eye

            But its an air force, they can run the jets they can deliver the payload to the terrorists on the ground, that what matters, the old soviets migs are still working fine as you see, Syria uses their aircrafts a lot on daily basis for attacking and reconnaissance.

          • Joe Dirt

            During the American Revolution the Brits called American ‘rebels’. During the Syrian Civil War, Assad are calling Syrians ‘terrorists/rebels’.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Let’s look at these so called rebels actual origins so understand they come from 100 nations and many have come from Saudi Arabia following al Wahhab another teaching not in Syria ,Jordanian Hashemite tribesmen ,Uighurs ,Uzbek,Azerbaijani,Afghani ,Libyan ,Algerian ,French ,BRITS ,Lebanese , Chechens ,Bosnians ,Canadians , Americans , Morocco ,Sudanese ,Egyptians,Tunisians ,etc. now you get the idea where the majority come from. Now in all honesty when you force locals to fight for you while holding their families hostages in tunnels and etc. do you get loyalty that way.

          • Garret Steinfeld

            …do you have source for that?

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            search number of combat flight during first gulf war and the same with the SAF along 7 years

          • Jens Holm

            Thats right. Most people dont see a lot even they should be possible to have logic sense.

            I had it yesterday, where SDFs were blamed this and that compared to SAA. It was forgotten that SDFs guards all their borders with at least something. It also was ignored SDFs are much smaller then SAA and they only get Air- and artillery support as well as supply, where US and friends give them.

      • Garret Steinfeld

        …there were a number of F-117 lost too,…according to one source 5, 2 due to bad weather, 2 due to insufficient fuel one due to unknown technical issues.

      • Jens Holm

        Many good reasons. a big sandstorm was rapported from Al Tanf relativly not so far away.

        • Manuel Flores Escobar

          during training flights in Saudi Arabia desert before first gulf war there were a high number of accidents..Pentagon spokeman told that it was as consecuence of flying low through desert storm!..USA lost many Apache and one F-4 wild weasel!

    • Daniel Castro

      I’m quite sure russians make their aircrafts capable to fly even if they have their electronics knocked out… so they would only fall out of the skies if the jamming affects the electromechanic parts of the aircraft, which might be pretty sturdy.

  • Michał Hunicz

    The technical side of coin of Russian aircraft must be a complete shit. They need to do sonething immediately.

    • Daniel Miller

      m8 the US lost 23 aircraft in 1 month in the gulf war cuz of technical reasons this happens its a unfortunate part of military ops.

      • Joe Dirt

        total aircraft lost in the Gulf War, 75/2250. percentage of lose 3%. Iraq had a 3% chance of an aircraft not bombing the shit out of them!!!!!! :D :D

        • Daniel Miller

          That still dosent change the fact that technical reaons cause alot of fatalatys amongst pilots.

          • Joe Dirt

            I don’t believe in “technical reasons”, ECM is real.

          • Daniel Miller

            ECM cant cause a fixed wing or rotarry aircraft to crash you conspiracy retard do you even know what ECM is? It means Electronic Counter Meshures…..its made to confuse a air to air or surface to air missile’s guidance system… its a defense system Russian and US aircraft have had for about 30 years now…do you mean EW as in electronic warfare? Then again you are wrong since EW’s cant take down or interfear with a aircraft witch has a human pilot in it. Just face the facts m8 crashes happen just like last month when the US lost 5 aircraft in less the a week all of it was cuz of technical failiure you obviousely have no idea what you are talkinabout by the fact you thing ECM and EW are the same thing…

          • Joe Dirt

            ECM and EW are not the same, you should go back to the academy.

          • Daniel Miller

            no shit they are not the same one is for defense the other is to take down drones and missiles NOT manned aircraft.

      • Joe Dirt
    • Jens Holm

      They do. They send the body home and are preparing graves with flowers too.

  • Redadmiral

    If anyone here believes these aircraft crashed because of technical difficulties other than those caused by Yanki Zionist Scum EW, your time has come to start buying Unicorns. You will make a small fortune. Emphasis on “small”, ’twill be very small, so small in fact a scintilla of a micron, would be considered at least 1 trillion times greater………. Wtfu and smell the stink of the Yanki Zionist Rats all over this.

    • Barba_Papa

      Naturally. Because as we all know no aircraft in the history of aviation has EVER crashed due to technical problems. No siree bob! It was all malicious meddling, each and every case!

      Now, I’m off to buy some unicorns. I hear there’s a future to be made.

      • jerrydrakejr

        Roger Rabbit discovered the real cause of all aircrafts crashing in the 60s of the last century – Gremlins!

  • Jose

    Why didn’t they eject? This, as the fighter last week, was warfare.

    • Redadmiral

      This rotary wing aircraft is one of the few helicopters that it is possible to eject from. There is an explosive device in the wing root which literally shoots the wings off allowing the pilots to eject. However, this may in fact be the problem insofar as the computer system if hacked could allow wings to be jettisoned. Crash would be almost immediate.

      • Naija Lolade

        Any safety or exit territory is known throughout history to be both manual and Electronic. So if EW is used, manual can be used immediately so I think your theory is void here..

        • Redadmiral

          On a hack you take control of the operating system. If you are in the office or at home you can of course physically disable the system. If, on the other hand you are flying at 300kph and you have less than 2 seconds to react, your rotors are gone and if you haven’t pulled the overhead eject handle you are dead….. Even if you did your chances are less than 50/50. However, the Ka 52s are reported to have the best safety features of all rotary wing craft.

          • Naija Lolade

            Will you keep quiet, you watch too much Hollywood film. Even non of the Hollywood films have propagated this your ideology. Seems you are living in another world totally.. I still stand by my point… EW can only disable communication systems and can immediately switch to manual.

            Simple as ABC.. Stop living in denial… Technical failure could make it crash within seconds.

    • velociraptor

      helo, not plane.

    • Jens Holm

      We dont know much. But I know many try to land as best choise.

  • Deo Cass

    This is no accident. If it were the pilots would have ejected safely as Russian aircraft have the best ejection seat system in the world. The truth of the matter is that France, the UK and the US want air dominance over all of Syrian airspace, both on sea and land. It’s all Putin’e fault for handing all of North Eastern Syria to the Zio/US imperial colonialist tyranny and co. He should have known that if you give the Americans your finger to appease them, they would take your hand. This is the beginning. Since they know Russia will not retaliate, they will continue shooting down Russian aircraft and killing its pilots until Russia will have none left.

    • billothinks

      And that hardly bodes well for the hundreds of thousands of good people, and many of them actually Russians, who are about to be attacked again by the fascist US-imposed junta government of Ukrainian ultra-nationalists in Kiev, who this time will be armed with the latest in high-tech American arms, especially the vastly more accurate and deadly new “manpads.”

      Will Putin blink yet again, just as he did when he promised that Russia would move in Russin troops to protect the ethnic Russians in Novorussiya, the Donboss, and Odessa, were they threatened with violence from new fascist government, but then did sweet zippo even when they were being tortured and massacred on May 2, 2014 after taking refuge from hordes of murderous thugs in the Trades Unions building in Odessa, and even as the invading army from Kiev was killing ordinary civilians in the eastern oblasts by the thousands.

      If Putin blinks yet again, the results will no doubt be still worse. Why is he such a fool in these situations? All he needs to do is send in a small part of his exceptionally well-trained army forces to keep the peace and the Kiev government will call off their offense, since even they are not stupid enough to think their silly “army” of 16 y.o. conscripts can match up against the strongst army in the world. The Western media will cry “bloody murder!” to the stars, but when have the NOT done that in response to anything the Russians do?

      It looked for a while like Putin had learned this lesson, especially when he stopped [most of] the American disingenuous prestigigitations in Syria. But now?? It may be back to the old “just appease the Americans” strategy of pre-2017. For the sake of all the world opposed to rapacious American Imperialism, let’s hope that’s not the case!

      • Naija Lolade

        . Putin or Russia for that matter has never blinked not for one second and people need to stop smoking Obama (Obomba) weed. It helps. if for anything, Javelin missiles cannot change anything in the donbass and Lugansk. Already nothing flies during the war so lets forget the manpads.. useless against the donbass forces. The dobass do not even fly any fighter jet so what use is manpad to them ?

        The war will be faught on the ground and with locals. One needs to check wherever there is such a huge resistance, it’s very hard almost impossible to use force. Highest, more ppl (Civilians will die). This is what the west is good at.. They are only good at killing civilians.

    • velociraptor

      Russian aircraft have the best ejection seat system in the world.

      when i wrote this, the shia fanatics attacked me…

      but to your comment. KA is chopper. in choppers is no chance. the rotors would cut you. if chopper crashes, all die.

      • Naija Lolade

        Shut-up and get lost already.. You are a fool, too stupid and only good at serving your warlord dying empire. For a seneless comment from you, everyone else must be a Shia Fanatic. That shows how backwad and foolish anglozionist wannabe fanboi that you are.

        Yes, Ka-52 got the best but that does not mean each and every one of it is perfect. Anything can happen and could happen very fast particularly with flying objects. A flying tank for that matter. EW can not shoot down KA.52…

        highest it can do is disrupt the communication systems. (What this means is that, the Pilots wont be able to communicate with the outside world, Electronically. This they will have to use their Geography 101 to land it in safe place.

        If it’s a drone.. This is what happens. When the Communication system is jammed or hacked. The drone will be looking for the next network to connect to and anyone that controls the next communication line or band can easly destory it, land it in a safe zone or even command it.. Same applies to cruise missiles. You can easily command them to land..

        Learn basics of how EW works please…. KA-52 is not a drone or UV.. It’s manned.

  • Joe Dirt

    USA electronic warfare winning!

    • Naija Lolade

      Wake up from your Slumber, Russia controls Syrian AirSpace Electronically Ok. I don’t see how EW can be used to crash Ka-52. It’s saying you can use EW to crash a car. Highest that can happen is shut down the Computer system of the car and it will change to manual. Then you go back to normal drawing board or Manual location instead on running on a kind of Auto-pilot. You change to manual here.

      This is not the same when Russia jammed USS Ship in Black Sea. The SSN ship faced the same fate. it was jammed and could not even see what was coming at it. If at war, the USSN would not be able to defend itself here but does not mean USSN ship crashed. Get a little education about EW in which Russia is 10 years ahead of the west.

  • Amine Mansouri

    this time i will not buy more su30 jets

  • Eskandar Black

    To early to tell what happened here, but since a shooting war hasn’t started, I am going to assume it is either an accident, and an act of aggression with plausible deniability. Despite the ridiculous conspiratorial comments below, I can almost assure you with 100% certainty that US and Israel and other Syrian interlopers had nothing to do with this. The analogies to the lost Su30 jet make no sense. Different types of air craft, went down in different parts of the country, in completely different ways. I would not exclude hostile fire as a possibility for this helicopter going doing, either by ISIS or some other jihadist gang until more information is available. People sure are quick to jump to conclusions. Frankly reading the nonsense in these comments is why many people don’t take south front seriously.

    • Redadmiral

      Well, well, well it seems we have many here who refuse to acknowledge we live in a super high-tech age, where one can throw virtual spanners into real live systems and fuck them-up. In the here and now a faulty break system on a car can be flagged by the supplier to the customer and recalled. For over 20 years in the Aircraft industry, aircraft maintenance engineers would be aware as soon as the pilot was of any glitches in electrical, hydraulic or propulsion systems when an aircraft was in flight and make decisions accordingly. With computer hacking skills it is easy to understand such an attack could be tailored to a specific A/C type, fly-by-wire A/C would be also prone to ew. Any household appliance, car or aircraft that has a computer determining choices can be hacked and will be hacked.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        There is nothing photo shopped shadows are all correct for a morning shot shadows are shorter and you see two different rifles which is correct procedure long barreled and short barreled one for long range and the other for CQ.

        • testera

          It’s the same rifle (muzzle device is still visible), but overcompressed JPEG can’t handle camo pattern over camo pattern.
          The reason camo on rifles is used in the first place is to make it harder to spot, and this proves it works great. :)

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Look at the stock and look at the clips both are different , never said it wasn’t an AK-74 just different variant of it. Well yes stating the obvious to Yo Squirt will only get you more of being in denial.

          • testera

            Variations in camo pattern doesn’t make them different variants.
            Photoshopping of this quality takes significantly more work than putting two random soliders behind the Tiger and taking a photo, so Joe Dirt lost discussion before it even started.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Take a careful look at the rifles both are different one is a rifle the other is a sub machine gun lower portion is a camo colored laser sight on the left of The Tiger. The clip is bigger the stock is built for absorption to the fire rate, right is a rifle designed for semi auto fire which is often used with deadly efficient accuracy.

          • testera

            I did take a good look at 200% zoom right at the start, and I did it again.
            Left red square marks interaction between camo patterns, pocket, shadow, light and JPEG compression. I see no additional device on the rifle.
            Magazines are at slightly different angle (so they look slightly different), but they are both standard 30 rounds. Extended magazines have more pronounced curvature. There are also some extra magazines visible on the right soldier.
            They also have same stock (a standard one).
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AK-74_RPK-74_DA-ST-89-06612reversed.jpg
            AK carbines have different stock and muzzle device.
            AK style submachine guns also have different looking magazines (because submachine guns use pistol ammo).

      You know, who are the trolls, the ruskiefans like alex, alex black, florian, jeusu, hrky, etc. who protested, when due to bird crashed f-35. and innediately accepted the bird, when russian sukhoy crashed last week. your level is vomitng level. you are the supertroll. also now, the hyperbestetst, ha-52, which can not crash (according to jesus and ither fanatics) now crashed. so, who is the troll? who writes the comments seriously, with cold head and objectively, or you, idiot haters, on level of radid dog?

      r.i.p., pilots!

        Correct me if I’m wrong.
        Where did I talk about that?
        and Forgive me If I’m wrong.

        • velociraptor

          if you did not, then you do not belong to them. all right! i wish you a nice week! :)
          but these guys are the trolls. 2 years ago here were normal people and here was really good discussion. pro and contra. now if somebody writes some critical words on assad, putin, immediately is zionsatan. so, the primitive hordes overwhelmed this forum. :(

          • TheSecular

            I have no problem with you expressing yourself on here.
            Even if with we disagree with each other. I want to keep my comments here civilized as much as I can even if I go off the deep end.
            You too have a nice week.

          • velociraptor

            Thanks. Such guys like you ere wlcomed here. I hope, you will stay.

        I was actually laughing at that picture.

        • Joe Dirt

          How does Russia show proof of involvement in the War????? They Photoshop themselves in! LOL :D

      • velociraptor

        Russians don´t need bullets. The are mentals. Them is enough to think, that they shoot you an you will die from bullet. :)))

        • Joe Dirt

          Russians apparently don’t need half of there gas block, barrel, muzzle break…LOL

          did Southtard Photoshop these Russians in?

          • velociraptor

            Probaly not. IF russian MoD three times showed fake videos as evidence about russian successes in syria (yankee attack in afghanistan and 2x video game), and also putin yhowed animated movie about terrible new weapons, i think these flasifications run on much higher level then SF. russian governments have historical experiences in falsifications of photos since 1917. :)))

          • Joe Dirt

            Russian’s involvement in the Syrian Civil War comes down to Photoshop LOL

        • Joe Dirt

          These must be the invisible weapons Russia has been telling us about!!! :D :D :D

  • velociraptor
    • Joe Dirt

      LOL you cant use Russian and casualties in the same sentence

      • Jens Holm

        To me thats not the reason. It make no sense to compare like that. If You fly many hours more will fall. If You have good repair, they will fly longer having no accidents good or bad ones. Some helicopters are better for staying alive then others in different climates and heights.

        You have to put things like that in and sometimes selective compare.

    • Jens Holm

      I hope You can take it. Your sentences hardly make no sense.

      Try again and after writing read, if it make sense.

    • Mahmoud Larfi

      velociraptor, there you go: https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/dblist.php?Year=2018&sorteer=datekey&page=10 – this is the most comprehensive database you can find on the internet of all the crashes (civilian and military) that happened around the world. I’m pointing you to the latest occurrences but you can browse the DB to as early as 1905: https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/

      • velociraptor

        Thank you for the source. Interesting is also, how many flights happen overall. So, not only the absolute number, but the crash/100 000 flights (or flightkilometers). THIS is more important information.

        • Mahmoud Larfi

          Yes but no such information on that website. You can search on Wikipedia per model/make and calculate an average based on units built/units lost. Regarding the K-50/52 however they are considered as one of the, if not the safest attack helicopter to fly out there. Very few crashes (I believe this one is the first during operation) and also have ejection seats.

          • velociraptor

            i have no doubt, that ka-52 is safe. but you know… it is a must to irritate the hater pigs. :)))

            i welcome discussion of such types. the here come infos, which system is godd in this model, which is weak. but in such way, that russian weapons are perfect, american ones shit and russia is decades befor usa, is not a serious style.

            be sure, if were kicked out thos haters, he could be i nice forum.

          • velociraptor

            so much time i dont´t have.

      • Java Ape Timelord

        Did superman lie? “Flying is still the safest way to travel”?
        I see over 1000 crashes of aeroplanes so far in 2018 and 3500 in 2017 on that web site.

        • Mahmoud Larfi

          But look at the bright side, most incidents resulted in no life loss.

  • Mahmoud Larfi

    Sputnik Arabic is reporting that the crash wasn’t the result of a shot down but most likely due to a bird strike and that one of the pilots is the squad leader Albert Davidyan.
    It happens that the Su-30SM that crashed last week was also due to a bird strike and (yes you guessed it) one of the pilots was the late squad leader Albert Davidyan.
    Note that both Su-30SM and Ka-52 are modern airframes and both models got working ejection seats. At least one thing is certain: Officer Albert Davidyan MUST DIE !

    • Jens Holm

      Syria had 2 birds and Splutnik is not to rely. I hope those pilots gets a good funeral with many flowers and their families get a pension or something.

    • velociraptor

      Too many birds in desert. ;) In arabci land i would exoect flying carpet. :)

      BUT! i am sure, it was either mistake of pilots, or technical failure. maybe rbels took down. America sure did not attack russian chopper. This is bullshit. It would be act of war. The similar reason is, why did not happen the incident with yankee destroyer in mare equinus (black sea!, already if russians were able to take out the electronic system of target ship (i doubt). Such war situations does not happen between usa and russia.

      • Brad Isherwood

        If you tabulate the …Few** …Russian Aircraft. ..all classes,….operated in Syria.
        It’s way higher Military operational readiness and sortie …
        Than turd NATO or US with its juggernaut global airpower.

        I’m not pleased that poor Syria is flying Mig 21,…Mig 23 …Su 22 around to survive
        Yet on paper and legal. ….no US F 16, or aged F4 Phantom has pulled these flight hours with bombing vs this days MANPADS. …and CIA /Satellite. …give real time air sortie.

        The Vietnam War gave us a Kodak of Soviet Russia resolve,
        And. ..the Resolve…of the Great People’s of Vietnam.

        If Putin /Lavrov were running that war…
        Vietnam… ….Would F’ing loose!

        Everyone serving Empire….or Iran, ….or Russia…in Syria

        Is expendable. ..

        Serbs are beaten into the dirt……and so is ……Partitioned Syria
        People dying for the Globalist game lie is pure Greek Tragedy.

        Syrian pilots. ….Russian Pilots,…..Shia Militias, ….IRGC. .
        Israel kill them all. ..
        US….kill them all

        Putin/Lavrov. ….Assad and grinning offshore Banking Mullahs…..do nothing.!

        Game continues…

        • velociraptor

          .no US F 16, or aged F4 Phantom has pulled these flight hours with
          bombing vs this days MANPADS. …and CIA /Satellite. …give real time
          air sortie.

          just a moment! there are lot of same old f-4s in the world in service.

          in vietnam the russian planes were not effective. vets tokk down yankee planes mainly by sa missiles.

          the rest i did not understand :) the words yes, your idea not.

          • Brad Isherwood

            What is it with toxic people?
            Ya cannot speak with them or to them.
            It’s allways the diss…..afterwards.

            Syria is just global MIC party on.
            Putin is Russia MIC vs US/NATO …MIC
            Iran’s leaders are sell outs.
            Israel gives the game…… something to do.

            Once the stupid Muslims quit killing each other…. ..and re- organize,
            They will turn on Israel

            And it’s Fucking Over !

            Idiots this website talk about Russia/Syria victory while the Sovereign UN nation is 1/3rd occupied by Illegal invaders.

            As I Said,
            If Putin /Lavrov were circa Vietnam war,…
            Vietnam would loose

            Pour a glass of Disappointment. ……and make it a double.

  • goingbrokes

    Sure yanks and Israelis would want to bring everything down by using EW measures, but it ain’t that easy. If it was that easy they would have done it already. I tend to think that flying at very low altitude these pilots simply did not have time to eject when a problem occurred.

    • Jens Holm

      good reason

  • 1691

    Sorry guys, you died too young. Thank you for all you did for your country, for Syria, for the world! Rest in Peace.

      Have u been jerking off? These mamas were russians. What they did was for father stalin.

  • max

    Has anyone had anytime problems whith his car?
    Most of us did.
    Cars do break down sometimes.
    Planes and choppers do the same.

  • max

    Knocked down? Possible.

  • max

    Once my motor was burning.
    I stopt the car and stept out. Save.
    When you step out of a plane or chopper in the air you fall down. A probally die.

  • World_Eye

    Hmmm, lately there is to much technical failures from the aircrafts in the Russian base in Latakia. Does the Russians want to hide something by denying or saying that is just technical failure, or there is much more into it. I doubt that some Israelis can dare them self to shoot a Russian aircraft of any kind, because they know they can be blown back at any time from the S-400s in the base, when Israel goes Rogue on killing spree inside in Syria killing Iranians.So if it’s an Israeli strike in which I doubt so hard, the Russians can retaliate when ever they want, because they use the Lebanon space anytime, Russian radars track every movement there its a small radius gap.Or just lately the Russian had just bad luck, or a vodka is been smuggled into the base and some of the pilots go drunk( just kidding ), accidents happen there is nothing to it. But it’s just raises to many questions the time gap in period of 5 days, the Russians lost 4 pilots=dead, from 1 Su-30 Jet and now 1 Ka-52 helicopter. So now we just need to listen the final statement- official from the Russian MOD in Syria, for this accident or…it’s surprised me how fast the Russians just determine that is an accident. Or maybe it is, via radio a pilot reported the very same thing and they rely on that information, like a said I doubt that some US or Israeli Aircraft can dare to attack one of these 2.

    • Joe Dirt

      Could it be the Turks? How many Russian aircraft have the Turks shot down?

  • It was a Zionist message as for the inauguration of President Putin.

  • AG Korvin

    FYI the Ka-50/Ka-52 family is the only one in ots class – to my knowledge – that is offering a catapult seat for its pilot/crew (depending on the model). This was especially designed with the survivability in mind. The gunship is widely deployed in combat situations (apart from Russia also by Iraq) and is proven to be capable. The malfunction is possible, but I think it might be related to an engine and/or fuel system failure.

  • ATTILA

    Crashed or knocked down doesn’t matter. Rejoice, cuz the world has been clenched of two more rassian civil servants! And rejoice further, cuz more of them are to follow!!!
