British missile used by Ukrainian fighters to shoot down high-tech Russian helicopter

This is the exact moment a Russian chopper crashes to the ground and perishes after being hit by a Ukrainian missile.

Although there is no apparent evidence of aircraft damage in the video, Ukrainian defenses assert that the aircraft was shot down in Zhytomyr, in the northwest of the country.

According to reports, soldiers from the Ukrainian 95th Air Assault Brigade attacked the aircraft, a Russian Kamov KA-52 helicopter, with a Martlet, also known as Starstreak in the UK.

The moment hostile soldiers shoot at the aircraft is caught on camera.

Although the brief video has gone viral, neither the time the missile impacted nor the number of fatalities have been disclosed.

Because of its battlefield management system, which enables it to exchange data with other aircraft to coordinate assault activities, the Russian single-seat attack helicopter has been called the “Black Shark” and was formerly referred to be Russia’s “deadliest helicopter.”

According to reports, the Martlet was struck 30 seconds after being launched.

Targets the size of a tennis ball moving at the speed of sound can be struck by sophisticated Starstreak missiles.

The air defense systems are short-range, man-portable, and are designed to defend against threats from the air. They may be set up for use in both vehicle-mounted and man-portable combat situations.

Britain promised earlier this month to work with the US to deliver additional long-range missile systems to Ukraine to aid in the conflict with the Kremlin’s soldiers.

On Tuesday, the British Ministry of Defense said that Ukrainian forces were “successfully striking well beyond Russian lines,” disrupting Russian command and control.

This strike on the advanced Russian chopper comes after a Russian missile targeted a busy shopping center in the Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk on Monday, killing at least 18 civilians.

As many as 1,000 people may have been shopping at the time of the assault, according to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, and it is doubtful that many people will be discovered alive in the wreckage.

In the terrifying video, firefighters and troops could be seen digging through the wreckage and picking out twisted bits of metal in search of survivors.

Zelensky claimed that Moscow could not be expected to “expect dignity and humanity,” and that the mall posed “no threat to the Russian army.”

The act, according to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, showed “again the depths of depravity and savagery to which the Russian leader would stoop.”
