North Korean snipers are trained to fire with perfect accuracy while flying 330 km/h in their Mi-25s.


First of all at the world championships North Korea beat the South by only a few points :) but both countries were first and second place, the use of snipers on choppers is very common in the DPRK army and ROK akin.

Secondly, there was a russian system that was in development in the 70's for mounting a variety of RPG and AA systems in the vehicle where the exhaust was vented into a vacuum and where the munitions were caught by a variety of traps, after announcement the project was quietly abandoned and the pilot who was making statements in public was suddenly never heard from again. Though with 5 years of development it could be a real system.

Also the 9M333 had much better accuracy than what is in wargame.

Also also, NKRUS pls, it's still a real thing even today.

explains what? I have another suggestion we all have been encountered with critical shots at tanks which leads to optical failure or firing computer and stablizing issue.my question is an old tank like T-55s how can their computers reset when they dont even have one?

Perplexed, he fired the rest of the rockets to no discernible effect. It was only when he was empty that he realised that the rockets, not being designed for employment in this manner, were being sucked up through the rotor blades and he was very lucky not to have had one strike a blade and destroy it and him.


The rotorblades that are blowing air downwards to lift the helicopter? I'm a bit skeptical...

Fin stabilized rockets are designed to point directly into the airflow. When they're moving slowly immediately after ignition and hit that downward rush of air from the rotor they try to point into it.

There's only one 9M333 system, the Yugoslav Sava. It performs quite well, at 60% acc.
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

I find it funny that the first thing on my research about Manpats. Says that ATGM teams are a threat to low flying aircraft especially helicopters. Eugen you have made our ATGM squads even weaker! :lol:

But the argument with fin stabilized does seem to hold water, especially if it was a bazooka, but the RPG and the aircraft HVAR rockets are pretty fast. The RPG-7 seems more like a combo Rocket-Recoiless system. But that backblast wouldn't be good inside a helicopter. It would be very bad if not capable of cutting through the hull of the aircraft in question.

The Manpat is kind of iffy. As in the MILAN especially no go. Something with a tube that needs to be switched makes more sense. But then you get that whole dreaded directional issue as with the fin stabilized. I would hate to see a Russian spin stabilized ATGM yikes.

You might get away with a helo like a Mi-2 or Huey with open doors on both sides. But enclosed helicopters I am not betting on. Especially in light of that Russian experiment.
