Incident with Russians: Russian convoys in Syria began to escort US attack helicopters


The command of the American armed forces in Syria after recent incident with blocking armored equipment and the injury of several US military personnel are changing the tactics of interaction with the columns of Russian troops. Now, instead of interfering with the movement of armored vehicles of the Russian Federation in the province of Hasaki, American Apache attack helicopters hover over Russian convoys, Al-Masdar News reports.


A video has appeared on YouTube describing the flight of two US AH-64 Apache rotorcraft combat vehicles near the Russian convoy. Apparently, now the Americans decided not to create obstacles to the armored vehicles of the Russian Armed Forces on the ground, but to pursue them through the air.


Apparently, the Americans have changed their approach to contacts with Russian units in response to the events of recent weeks, which were not very successful for the United States. So, on August 26 in the province of Hasaki, an incident occurred between the servicemen of the Russian Federation and the United States - Russian armored vehicles overtook the Americans and blocked their movement. Soldiers of the United States Army moved in armored vehicles International MaxxPro, Russians - in helicopters and a variety of military equipment.

The US military knew about the passage of a Russian military convoy in the northeastern part of the SAR and tried to block its movement, violating bilateral agreements. Russia took the necessary steps to continue the combat mission

- with such a message was made by the Russian military department on August 27.

    Will American and Russian helicopters now block each other?

      Not. Now a fighter with MANPADS will defiantly protrude from the hatch of each vehicle.

      It is high time to depict the "goat face" of the Yankeles.
      "Top Booty Chosen Race", just played.
      When the American invaders, in the form of "Cargo-200", will finally begin to be delivered to the "American Reich", such antics will stop by themselves.
      For every soldier of the Russian Army who died, for every Russian citizen against whom "illegal actions" were committed, any NATO state, and especially the ringleader of the United States, should not remain without a harsh response using "any means and types of weapons."
      Otherwise, it will be what it is now, when gangsters demand "complete surrender" and the death of Russian military and civilians.

      Well, the Americans don't have a lot of chances. 24ki are larger than Apaches. He will crush him and will not ask for a name.

        Certainly, otherwise so much would not have been used. Today, perhaps the most effective combat helicopter.

        And here it is debatable. Apaches did not really fly over the battlefield. Only from a distance they fired missiles. Our turntables arrange a "carousel" over the battlefield.

    The answer to the Americans was given intelligible with a dusty helicopter shower and a hockey reception, now they have calmed down and come up with a new dirty trick - let's wait what they throw out this time ...

        That is, do you think that it was not the Russian jammers that worked, but the Americans have such bad equipment and the pilots are not experienced?

          Why are the pilots not experienced - no one seems to have died, they coped ...
          Can you tell us how Krasukha or other electronic warfare systems work, what they are capable of burn whole blocks hardware? Do you know what errors overtook Apache? So far, only one of the obvious facts: Apache was forced to land due to failures, which happens.
          If the Rebovskie have worked it out, then they will not boast of their achievements, which is normal for them ... and with the amers it will soon become quite funny - they have one answer for all their failures.

            So you confirm that their technique is not alright?
            Maybe they just removed it, maybe not just.

              You do not seem to delve into what you read, then it's simple: Helicopters, and not only, from time to time do not fly as you want, it happens. Electronic warfare is generally on the other side of the 010 order, but it is also written on the fence.

    My friend, you are stuck in the 70s

    in 2003, during the US Army's invasion of Iraq, an ordinary farmer shot down an Apache with a simple hunting rifle. Later, the American military and journalists insisted that all this was a propaganda move by the Iraqi army.

      I am not stuck anywhere. In the story with the "Iraqi peasant", there are two options:

      1) The peasant really shot at the Apache with a hunting rifle, but hit some knot, vulnerable for anyone helicopter - for example, in the tail rotor or rotor hub. There is such a probability, but very small.

      2) The Americans are right, and the story of the peasant and the hunting rifle is a bluff. Because the Apaches were repeatedly fired from the ground and with much more serious weapons, but at the same time they managed to return to the base or carry out a combat mission.

      Most likely, they were shot down from a military rifle or small-caliber anti-aircraft gun. And the peasant was dragged along.

      Well, the "Iraqi falah-hero" himself later admitted that he simply found a dead "Apache" in his field, summoned the military, and local propaganda workers had already come up with this version with a hunting rifle.

    What were the criteria for determining the effectiveness of the Apache? For example, I would call the Black Hawk and Sea Hawk the most effective.
    Regarding the reservation, the Apache polyacrylic armor plates will only be able to reflect a single burst of Kalashnikov, and even then not a fact. Although in the parameters of the "American" there is a column "improved survivability", cases of helicopter destruction from a machine gun were described and documented
    From operating experience, he can conclude that Apache is good for well-defined tasks, when the coordinates of the enemy are known and there is support from the ground. Apache is not suitable for patrolling in urban areas, as it immediately becomes an easy prey for the enemy.
