In Libya, "Pantsir-C1" Haftar shot down PNA attack aircraft

As it became known from a post on Twitter by the Egyptian freelance journalist Mohamed Mansour, the Libyan National Army (LNA) under the command of Marshal Haftar managed to bring down a combat aircraft.

Mansur reported that the MiG-23UB belonging to the Government of National Accord (PNS) was shot down by the Russian Pantsir-C1 air defense system, which had been delivered to Havtar from the United Arab Emirates several weeks earlier aboard the UAE Air Force S-17A transport aircraft.

Later, information appeared, confirmed by representatives of the PNS, that the downed aircraft is a light attack aircraft L-39ZO made in the Czech Republic.

Experts who examined the remains of a plane shot down by the Russian complex agree with this statement.

    If you endlessly throw stones at an apple tree, then sometimes it turns out to knock an apple

      You will not praise yourself, as they say, you will not wait from others ... laughing (I didn’t put you cons).
      And for your information, the ammunition of the "Pantsir" is much more expensive than stones, so "you never leave".
      But the very fact that Haftar has this technique "from the Emirates" is interesting. wink Apparently, the Emirate military experts also quickly learned to use it locally, well, like - while the plane was refueling, they showed what was happening, where is the fly, where is the trigger, where is the tanning bed and so on, the little things ... lol
