Again a big noise from Syria. On January 6, a massive attack by unmanned aerial vehicles on Russian bases in Syria was foiled. In total, 13 vehicles took part in the attack, 10 in Khmeimim and 3 in Tartus.

Six goals managed to take control by the Russian means of electronic warfare. 3 of these was landed in controlled territory outside the base, and 3 more UAVs was detonated from a collision with the ground.

Seven UAVs were destroyed by "Pantsir-S" of Russian air defense.

No UAV has achieved the targets, no injured and no damage.

In my opinion, this is the world's first case of such a mass attack by homemade UAVs by terrorists. It is very pleasant that our air defense forces were ready to repel such a raid with such complex targets.

Although against this background, new questions arise to attack Khmeimim on December 31. The official version with mortar shelling is not the best way to explain all the facts. But the fact that it could be a trial attack using UAV, to repel an attack which was then not ready - is more interesting.

Here are photos with intercepted "gifts" from ISIS.

Из истории Ка-52

Уже на закате СССР встала задача разработки нового армейского вертолёта. В конструкторское бюро Камова приехали предствители сухопутных войск и обратились к тогдашнему главе бюро, Сергею Михееву. И сказали: «Степень автоматизации нового вертолета должна быть такой, чтобы мы солдатика посадили - и он бы полетел». Михеев поже вспоминал: «Видимо, у нас стали такие выражения лиц, что они решили сильно смягчить требования: Ладно, с солдатиком мы явно погорячились - согласны на старшину-сверхсрочника...» :)

Поэтому вертолёт разрабатывался предельно простым в пилотировании, с автоматизированным прицельным комплексом, очень дешёвым. Но потом СССР распался, много дешёвых вертолётов, доступных мало квалифицированным лётчикам стали не нужны. И в серию вместо большого количества Ка-50 пошло малое количество дорогого двухместного варианта Ка-52.

Ka-50 history

Already at the end of the Soviet Union, the task was to develop a new army helicopter. In the design office of Kamov came the representatives of the ground forces and appealed to the then head of the bureau, Sergei Mikheev. And they said: "The degree of automation of a new helicopter should be such that we put a soldier - and he would fly". Mikheev later recalled: "Apparently, we have become such expressions of persons that they decided to significantly soften the demands: Okay, with the soldier we clearly got excited - agree to the sergeant-super-term ... " :)

(I do not know how correctly translated into English the title of sergeant, who remains to serve after compulsory recruitment, Google translated this as a "sergeant-super-term")

Therefore, the helicopter was developed extremely simple in piloting, with an automated sighting system, very cheap. But then the USSR disintegrated, many cheap helicopters that were available to little qualified pilots became unnecessary. And in the series instead of a large number of Ka-50 went a small amount of expensive two-seat version of the Ka-52.

A Few Fleet

Чтобы не одна только авиация была (хотя я и её фанат :) ) — немного флота.

In order not to go all the way to aviation subjects (although I'm a fan of aviation :D) - a little fleet.
