On the last page of my OP, Codename Duchess asked "Why couldn't an ATGM be used against a helicopter?" Short answer. Not only can it, but for some weapons, it's explicitly part of their capabilities. Krizantema is listed as being able to engage low flying helicopters, as can Refleks. The Ukrainians have TLGM weapons with similar, if not better, capabilities. But I believe the statement about helicopters on the UKR site understates capability vs them. As long as accurate guidance can be maintained in the face of whatever the helo's doing, hitting a moving helicopter should be doable, too. Of course, if you happen to land in front of a Kornet-E team waiting for you to so so, this may well happen. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=d88_1410189533 Here is an uncredited, but undoubtedly from Russian source, very good article on modern Russian attack helicopters. Not only is it technically meaty, but it has some great large format color pics, too. Regards, John Kettler
