A video of trying to bring down the US Air Force S-130 transporter from RPG-7 is published


The U.S. Air Force in Afghanistan captured the time of the attack on the S-130 transport aircraft from an RPG-7 anti-tank grenade launcher. Terrorists planned to bring down the plane of the Americans with a shot from the ground, writes The Drive magazine.


The S-130 flew over the territory on which the US military contingent is located in order to dump the necessary cargo. The drone was monitored by the MQ-9 drone, recording everything that happens with the aircraft on camera. MQ-9 captured the moment of dropping cargo by parachute.

Then the operators sitting at the control panels of the unmanned aerial vehicle saw a flash of light coming from somewhere on the right and flying straight towards S-130. This could be nothing more than a targeted attack to bring down an airplane.


Tragedy, it seemed, could not be avoided. But the pilots managed to get away from the strike and turned to the side - it was not noticeable in the video whether they had done it by accident or planned to deliberately get away from the strike from the ground. However, the plane continued its mission, and no one was hurt.

The drone photographed not only the moment of the shot at the aircraft, but also discovered the location of the terrorists - they were in buildings nearby. The operators noticed how a group of armed men hurriedly left the scene of the attack, and reported this to the command.

It is reported that subsequently an air strike was launched on them.

    Everything that can be understood from the video, the shooter did not take the lead. No aircraft maneuvers are visible. In the description of the original video about this is also not a word. An impressionable author has a fantasy?

    The United States supplied dushmans who fought with Soviet soldiers, MANPADS and weapons. And now why doesn’t Russia supply weapons and MANPADS of the same dushmans fighting against the USA? There is an open betrayal of Russia's interests and a fawning on the United States. Although, over the past 20 years, too many states have appeared around our borders that are openly hostile to Russia. Maybe this is such a cunning plan of our government?

      Yes Yes. They supplied the dushmans, and they, in gratitude to them, cut down the “towers”. Now they don’t know how to defeat them. Smart Americans, right?)
      And by the way, you correctly noted: not only Afghans fought against the Russians, but in fact also the USA. But the Americans face to face with the "shepherds" can not cope. Weakly somehow.

    The Haftarovites, apparently, did not hear about the lead.

    Something is not visible how the Americans supposedly turned to the side.

    The missile went far, IMHO, pulled at random from crooked hands.
