#1 Wow that guy is really stoked.

Same gig with the Russians in Afghanistan...missiles and helicopters do not mix well, unless of course you are an Apache.

#6 A helo below 15,000 feet is dog meat for an SA-7. This HIND did not appear to initiate countermeasures [flares if it had any] either. Bad day all around.
