Ukrainian soldier tried to shoot down his own MiG-29 from Igla MANPADS


Friendly fire is a common occurrence during a military conflict. Especially often this happens in the armed forces, deprived of coherence, decent training and competent management on the part of the command staff. The Ukrainian army is here, as they say, ahead of the rest.


On February 25, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that on the night of February 24-25, Ukrainian air defense forces shot down a Su-27 of the national air force in the sky over Kiev. Ukrainian anti-aircraft gunners mistook the fighter for a Russian one and hit it with a rocket. A damaged car collapsed in the suburbs of the Ukrainian capital, which we We wrote earlier.

However, attempts to destroy their own combat aircraft continue. The Ukrainian military filmed the launch of an anti-aircraft missile from the Igla MANPADS at a MiG-29 fighter belonging to the national air force.


Nevertheless, the missile missed the target. Probably, the old Soviet "Needles" are no longer suitable for combat use, because any air defense system has its own expiration date.

The Ukrainian military firmly believed that they were hitting a Russian aircraft, although it is known for certain that very few MiG-29s remained in the Russian Aerospace Forces and they are not involved in the operation on the territory of Ukraine.

        It's not a plane.
        This is part of the rocket. Khakhly shot down.

    In the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and in the Russian Aerospace Forces, the same aircraft are used. Identification marks are not visible from the ground. Taking into account the fact that the MANPADS crew picked up the complex for the second time, such shooting is not a surprise.

        Holy even in monasteries and in madrassas, in cheder, they do not believe. The serviceman must be trained and provided. MiG-29 in the Russian Aerospace Forces, at least two regiments, combat-ready. Even the members of the Yunarmiya know this. For the vast Ukrainian sky, all combat-ready aircraft are involved.
        All Ukrainian servicemen are wearing helmets and body armor. But the Russians don't. Surprisingly. We didn't go out for mushrooms.

      Are you able to see the identification marks from a distance of a kilometer? I would like to see it.
      This indicates a lack of preparation at all and a lack of management

          I read it, only naive people think that identification marks will help in identification. Operators need to be trained and managed. In this case, the only thing you can cling to is camouflage: in 404s it is bright on 27s; gray on the rest, but you need to know this too

            Operators need to be trained and managed.

            In war 080808, Russian military personnel spent 8-10 sets of MANPADS per air target. For the same reason. It is unlikely that things have improved radically. Simulators are a rare thing, and you can’t save enough for the practice of MLRS shells.

          No. They fired from the S-200 air defense system. Get ready carefully. Hryvnia will not be given.

        You don't have to lie. He shot down a Ukrainian crew from his S-200 launcher. In the exercises, each uses his own. They performed a target launch, seeing a second flare on the locator nearby and not specifying what it was. The rocket, after launch, due to poor preparation of the calculation, re-aimed at a new, more contrasting target - a passenger plane.

          They did not establish the area of ​​​​the exercises by doubling the range of the missile. And a number of other violations.

          You are mistaken - the missile of the S-200 complex has a semi-active seeker, and therefore it does not care about the contrast of the target, -where it was pointed (highlighted)
          and worked there ... Another kalenkor - how did a civilian aircraft get into the air defense exercise zone? Where is the interaction between civil and military services?
          Indeed, for an air defense officer, any target that did not respond to a request is enemy! If the shelling took place in a non-combat firing sector, the perpetrators should rot in places not so remote ...

            I am writing from memory ... that is, what I remember from those times ... The S-200 missile system that shot down the Tu-154 flew a greater distance than it is "listed" in the performance characteristics! They say that this happened with S-200 missiles more than once! An article is even devoted to such "tricks" from the S-200 ... it was printed (it seems!) On the pages of the VO ... it was available on the Internet ... By the way, Ukraine then refused to admit its guilt and pay compensation to the relatives of the victims; motivating how times, by the fact that the Tu-154 was shot down at a distance exceeding that indicated in the performance characteristics of the missile! (Like, well, she couldn’t ... she couldn’t! She couldn’t! ... stop )

              That's exactly what she could not - she herself could not !!!
              Without target illumination by a missile guidance station
              The S-200 is just a flying log (moreover, without target capture by the GOS, the rocket simply will not leave the guide). And the target is illuminated by the crew of the station. In addition, during the exercises, the organizers always set the firing sector and the angles of the ban ... Moreover, all indications of the guidance station were photographed for reporting by the unit commander ...

                Yes ... I remember that the S-200 missiles have a semi-active radar seeker with target acquisition on launchers ... In my comment, I kind of tried to answer the question: "how did a civilian aircraft get into the air defense exercise zone?" That is, the Tu-154 was not in the exercise zone, but there were also attempts by "interested parties" to explain the defeat of the airliner "in their own way"!
