Turks shot down Mi-35 attack helicopter in Libya

The Turkish military, located on the territory of the demarcation of the LNA and PNE forces in Libya, shot down a Russian-made Mi-35 helicopter. A crew of three people died, no one managed to escape.

During the confrontation between the Libyan National Army and the forces of the Government of National Unity, supported by Ankara, a Mi-35 helicopter was shot down in the area of ​​Misrat. Apparently, this was done with the help of the Turkish HISAN air defense system, which was deployed near this area.

Military aircraft are often used in combat operations by Russian helicopters, but up to this point they could not be shot down. These vehicles are perfect for air strikes against enemy military convoys.

Earlier, a video was published of the attack of Libyan army helicopters under the command of Khalifa Haftar at the PNE position near Misrat. The video was shot from the Mi-35 helicopter, which participated in the action.

The civil confrontation in Libya began in 2011 after the overthrow of the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, which was initiated by opposition forces with the support of some Western countries.

        - Listen, here you are, judging by several of your comments, you obviously don’t fit into the general cohort of the site lobby ...
        - Here, personally, I am simply amazed at the single, supported "second-hand" opinion ... - Does it strike you ??? On the entire site there are about a dozen people who express their opinion, try to convey and reveal their point of view to others ... - They are not for anyone (including myself) - they are just for objectivity ... - The rest of the audience is just does not express anything and does not convey anything to anyone and does not reveal ... - she simply "performs" ... - simply "performs" ... - Yes, you yourself see everything ...
        -So, only these "ten people" can argue, conduct debates, some kind of polemic ... - The rest of the purposeful, engaged, numerous and many-sided (several in one person) audience will always blow only one tune ...
        - Well ... and your right ... and the choice ... ... is yours ...

          The vast majority of site visitors have no desire to argue with a person who does not have knowledge, but has an opinion, and this person cannot be persuaded ...

            For werevolf75 (Vladimir)

            -Do you think that the "absolute majority" (I personally call this majority a little differently) has knowledge ??? - Are you serious???
            - It is hopeless to copy-paste overdried truths ... - as in a manual ... - not a single independent conclusion or logical inference ... - is this knowledge ??? - This "knowledge" is good ... - Nothing independent and constructive ... - Nothing evidential and at least somehow tied to the real thing ... - Such is the "arsenal" ... - inexhaustible "baggage of knowledge" .. - Many people simply do not even understand what they are talking about, but out of a sense of their lack of understanding (and from this - the resulting feeling of hostility) they support what is more accessible to them ... - It's not even their fault, but a misfortune ...
            - Ah, still the opinion ... - Yes, the opinion should be ... - But, after all, the opinion is based on something ... - But this is not about your "absolute majority" ... - What kind of opinion ... - it's much easier ... just ... - to get into this "absolute majority" ...
            - Okay .., I hasten to reassure you ...; don't really worry ... - everything will continue in the same vein ...
