This Mi-8 became the second LNA helicopter that was captured by the GNA due to a technical malfunction. The previous one, a Mi-17, crash landed and was abandoned by LNA forces west of Sirte in August.

It doesn’t look like a helicopter that flew recently, it looks more like a helicopter scrapped for spare parts that was left somewhere.
The door and both the slide windows has been removed and i can’t see how that could be caused by the landing.
My guess is that they collect and sell scrap.

Look at the cockpit area. You’ve got detached cables and missing components. Here’s what an operational MI-17 cockpit looks like:

I have read an article about this. It says that the helicopter got hard landing and was abandoned by its crew. Probably they ripped off some cables and smashed some glass to make it dysfunctional.

Did they capture? It crashlanded by malfunction. But nice to have one less in the sky.

Anyway: According to my knowledge helicopters are important in those areas. Our semilars can be armed with machineguns, missiles and has flairs. And thats it.

Thats a very expensive crashlanding.

All they can do with it is give it a wash, paint some flowers and buterflies on it and place it in some playground for young little future mercenary jihadi kids to play with.

The European Union and the United States are stepping up sanctions on the Turkish defense industry over arms and defense systems deliveries amid talks over the purchase of an additional batch of S400 missiles.

These sanctions now threaten the implementation of many important defense programs of the Turkish defense industry and extend to the operational functionality of the Turkish Air Force.

According to a former pilot of the Turkish Air Force, the modernization of the Turkish F-16s and the installation of a new AESA radar is stopped, due to the sanctions in the Turkish defense company ASELSAN.

ASELSAN cannot receive batches of the new radar systems from the USA, while the delivery of many other systems of American companies as well as the sale of spare parts of the Turkish F-16 fighter jets has also been stopped.

This is a very serious development that will have a clear and direct impact on the readiness of Turkish aircraft once it is certified and confirmed in its entirety, putting Ankara’s fighters in a dire position vis-à-vis the Greek Air Force.

According to these data, Turkish pilots are not only at risk of an accident in the Aegean, but also of a possible damage to their aircraft, which can break down at any time.

Greeks voted best NATO pilots of the world – again!

Greek pilots were voted as the best in the world at the NATO Tactical Leadership Programme meeting (TLP 2019-1).

They were recognised for their interceptions, long-range bombardment and strikes against war ships under extreme weather conditions.

Pilot Vassilis Kontopoulos was voted as the operator that all pilots would want to have next to them in battle.

The TLP is an organisation formed under a Memorandum of Understanding. It is not part of the NATO structure, but linked to NATO via a Letter of Agreement. The mission of the programme is to increase the effectiveness of the Allied Air Forces through the development of leadership skills, mission planning, briefing, tactical air operations and debriefing skills and conceptual and doctrinal initiatives.

Despite the strict measures taken to conduct flight exercises in secrecy, video footage emerged from the exercises showing the spectacular skill of the pilots.

Thats the HAF the rullers of the Agean and your teachers.

And this is you …not such good students… we keep giving you free flight lessons but you guys just prefer swimming:
