The rocket passed the helicopter: the work of the BKO Mi-8 in Syria is shown


To protect against MANPADS, SAMs and air-to-air missiles, Russian helicopters are equipped with optical-electronic suppression stations of the L-370 Vitebsk family (export designation - President-S). These airborne defense systems (BKO) have proven their reliability during the Russian military operation in Syria.


An example is the documented case that took place in the fall of 2016 in the province of Hama and was confirmed by Arab sources on both sides of the conflict. The presented picture demonstrates the work of the BKO.

At 11:00 local time on October 8, a military transport-assault helicopter Mi-8AMTSh (Mi-171Sh) was delivering humanitarian aid to the aforementioned Syrian region. In the process of carrying out the mission, the rotorcraft was fired upon by ISIS jihadists (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) from MANPADS.

The Vitebsk system detected the launch of an enemy missile and automatically activated the use of a complex of passive interference, active protection (radio interference) and optoelectronic suppression. This led to the disruption of the homing head of the jihadist missile and it missed the target.

Currently, all Russian helicopters are equipped with various modifications of the L-370. Moreover, "Vitebsk" is also installed on the plane of the President of Russia, Su-25 attack aircraft and Il-76 transport aircraft.

      Great products?
      What excellent products for the army were produced in the USSR, if the Red Army, and then the SA, was "armed" with poor ersatz?
      And the Russian army is "armed" with them.

    The prototype of the complex was first presented in June 2010 in Paris at the Eurosatory-2010 exhibition.

    It was tested on Mi-8 and Ka-50 helicopters. In 2015, at the training ground near Akhtubinsk, 8 Igla-type missiles were fired at a Mi-20 helicopter standing on the ground with a Vitebsk installed on it. All the missiles fired failed to hit the target.

      You yourself have given a list of losses. Some simply suffered plane crashes, some were destroyed by ATGMs - it's only possible to shoot at those standing on the ground. There are two losses on the aircraft carrier - purely technical reasons. IL-20 - pure "friendly fire". An attack aircraft was shot down by a missile from a MANPADS - one real combat loss and a Su-24 at the very beginning of hostilities - by an air combat missile. Was the complex on these sides or not - we need to find out. So your list is practically nothing.

      Barrel bombs are in service only in the European direction. Filled with feces and used exclusively by Estonian punishers, stranglers of free Afghanistan. By relics and oil.

          Yes, yes, about the same, but with fecal content, prepared for Estonian punishers.
          If you throw a box from a helicopter, you can probably call it a box bomb. Or you can drop the bag. Gravity allows for great variety. Didn't you know that? Cheap and cheerful. For the oppressors of the Afghan people, that's it. Is this the essence of the claims against the "barrel" bomb?

            There are no punishers in Estonia. This is the Russian Armed Forces in Syria helping Assad in a punitive operation against the people of Syria. And that's for sure.

              There are Nazis in Estonia, they freely organize parades, and that's for sure. And they become punishers when they leave for Afghanistan. Russia helps in the destruction of terrorists and not Assad and the Syrian people.

                  The article does not say anything about barrel bombs either. Doesn't it bother you? As I understand it, you want to talk about Ukrainian soldiers in the service of NATO? Where do we start? From Iraq or Afghanistan?

                  Why is it that we have the most of them?

                  Google "There are 53 fascist organizations in Russia (list)"

                  Googled yes This is what "Ukrainian bloggers" tell. In recent years, a stable tradition has developed there to accuse others of "soiling" from their own trousers. laughing Two countries, the USA and Ukraine, vote against the glorification of Nazism in the UN. There is no faith in this hotbed of Nazism. Show other sane sources or stop lying.

                  When you cleanse then and climb out ((((

                  Do not wait, this trash was crushed and we will crush. And we can't close our mouths. We also have them, but here they are marginals and they are fighting with them, they are heroes in your country and they go to parades.
                  This is from the report of the Russian Foreign Ministry, read it useful for you. There is a sequel. It's just disgusting. negative Probably the contents of the barrels should be changed to napalm sad

                  The Estonian authorities continue to impose a distorted interpretation of the joint history of Russia and Estonia, mixed with nationalist ideology and Russophobia. The Soviet period, which is presented by modern Estonian historiography as the “occupation of 1940-1991,” and the events of the Great Patriotic War on the territory of the country, are subject to the greatest falsifications. On this basis, a myth is built about “freedom fighters” who fought against “Soviet aggressors” in the form of the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS units and security and punitive units, camouflaging the glorification of Nazi criminals and their accomplices. At the same time, information about the war crimes of Estonian collaborators is hushed up, first of all, complicity in punitive actions against civilians, the destruction and torture of concentration camp prisoners and Soviet prisoners of war.

              Do not thin out, everything is there. It's just the principle of reasonable sufficiency. Weapons are used depending on the importance of the target. Barrels are quite suitable for this direction.

                  Don't worry, everything is taken into account. Stored on a hill, slope towards the Baltics, a suitable wind rose. Again, in winter, there are no storage problems. Do you want to personally inspect and make sure? smile

    - Systems "President-S", "Vitebsk" and the like are effective only against old IK GOS, where the coordinators are systems based on a rotating raster disk. Thermal imaging GOS, where the sensitive element is like video cameras in smartphones, is not subject to these types of interference at all. They need a sufficiently powerful laser that will allow such a seeker to dazzle and an accurate guidance system, for example, a millimeter-wave radar. Fortunately for combat helicopters, MANPADS do not have such GOS yet, only on the most advanced short-range air-to-air missiles - AIM-9X, Python-5, AIM-132, Stunner.
