War – The Battle for West Germany

“Beep… Beep… Beep…Beep..Beep.Beep GARRRRRRR” I pulled the trigger and the 1.5 meter long missile popped out of the FM-92 Stinger, riding on a small ejection motor that alleviated any danger of backblast to me or people behind me. In less than a second the main motor fired, streaking the missile at mach 2 toward its target, only 500 meters away and closing fast. The missile ignored the countermeasures fired by the pilot of the Mi-24 attack helicopter. The pilot swerved hard to the right, but the missile connected with the tail of the helicopter. The warhead exploded on contact, nearly severing the rigid tail from the airframe. The tail rotor was immobilized, making the helicopter spin. The pilot had almost no control; he didn’t have enough speed to keep going straight, and cannot hold the aircraft in one direction to attain the required speed to stop the spinning.

He’s doomed, and he knows it, he radioed the gunner, telling him to brace for crash landing. The gunner complied, this is the moment that he has feared his entire career as a gunner, no control, all he could do was trust the pilot, who still had control over the main rotor, but no control over the directional rotor.
