The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence has released a dramatic video showing Hind helicopters engaging Russian ground targets while avoiding counterfire.

The footage, shared on the ministry’s X account, captures a helicopter flying at low altitude before deploying missiles at Russian positions.

The fact that Ukraine can even contemplate flying old gun ship like this shows just how shit the donkeys are. Imagine Russia trying to fight NATO, it would be embarrassing.

The fact that they’re copying the same tactic of the russians of firing from further away by lobbing the rockets suggests that there still is a threat.

S400 is a joke, stormshadow cuts through it like a knife through butter. Even ATACMS which is a fairly dumb ballistic missile can easily take it out. The Russian Airforce is an even bigger joke. Mig 31 trying to lob long range missiles against Typhoon with Meteor or F22 or F35 with AMRAAM would be… Read more »

Agree but the meat waves are never ending….

In my opinion, China is the biggest threat….and the West keeps buying huge amounts of things from the factory of the world…scary..

I’m pretty sure that’s a Mi-8 variant, not a Mi-24 :/ Mi-24’s don’t have wheel down in flight or that side sponson ?
