BREAKING: Another A-50U Shot Down In Russian Rear Region

Click to see full-size image

On the evening of February 23, the Russian Aerospace Forces lost another A-50U  long-range radar detection aircraft in the rear region. According to preliminary reports, Russian A-50U was shot down in the Krasnodar region.

The attack took place at about 8 p.m. local time in the Kanevsky district. Footage from the region confirmed that the wreckage of an aircraft fell near the village of Trudovaya Armenia:

 

 

The local authorities confirmed that an aircraft fell in the area. As a result of the incident a fire broke out near the village. No civilian facilities were damaged. Civilian casualties were avoided. The type of the aircraft was not officially revealed.

More footage filmed by the local residents showed that the aircraft was shot down by a missile and the crew tried its best to avoid the strike, firing heat flares:

 

 

Various Russian military sources confirmed the destruction of the Russian A-50U AWACS. Fragments of the tail section of the downed A-50U of the Russian Aerospace Forces was discovered nearby:

 

 

The Ukrainian side hurried to declare another victory. The Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine has published the alleged track of the Russian A-50 in the Russian rear.

Despite the Ukrainian claims, it is not clear how the Armed Forces of Ukraine could reach the aircraft. The village where the aircraft crashed is located about 250 kilometers from the frontlines in Ukraine. The Ukrainian military has no weapons to reach such remote targets in the Russian rear, including the US-made HIMARS MLRS. Thus, the friendly fire is the  most possible option.

This is likely the second AWACS A-50 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces shot down by friendly fire in the region since the beginning of the year. On January 15, another Russian A-50 was shot down and the Il-22 was damaged over the Sea of Azov.

The Russian military reportedly has 13 A-50 and eight A-50U aircraft, as well as several A-50 aircraft in storage. These are extremely valuable machines that allow the Russian military to detect targets at a great distance and give target designation to long-range air defense systems like the S-400 and fighters with long-range missiles.

could it have been an harm missile or was it shoot down from inside russian territories with a manpad? a rbs-70 would be up to the task and maybe an verba

manpads are not able to shot down an aircraft 10km above the ground, wake up.

Minime

i haven’t seen any source indicating that it flew at a height of 10km, could you post a source to that claim. but now it seems like it was friendly fire and that russia needs to get their iff in better shape. a-50 is a big target that also emits a lot or signals and should be easily distinguished from other targets.

Clyde

while the us and/or their proxies lose every conflict they concoct, they do have sophisticated electronic technology. if this is a friendly fire shoot-down, what, if any, similarity is there to the iranian shoot-down of the ukrainian airliner 752, or malaysian 17?

Barry Graves

if russia does not attack nato at some point, it will drag the problems along with it for another 200 years.

the weakness of nato is to be grasped with hands, it supplies all weapons to ukraine, can no longer defend itself and ukraine loses the war anyway!!!!

putin, -show courage, grab nato, if you wait, nato vulture will come for you sooner or later!

uh noo, they’d rather drive around in circles in minefields and wait until their entire army has been destroyed.

jens holm

its two things

1) as long as russia use ressucers in ukraine as well as in factories, they are not able to.

2) russion not meet nato in ukraine.

russia not even has bicles and fishing gear as supply. you are les for and not born in brighton. we only donate what they can handle.

thats why they fx not have f16s yet. i now know they can fly the jets. thats not the same as being good pilots. they also has to have maintain in every detail, which has to be educated well.

captain hohol

russia does not need to attack nato, civil war is forthcoming in the united states, canada is politically crumbling and has a clapped out military and unable to conduct warfare, same with the uk and france and germany.

russia needs to merely outlast nato and the rest will work out for russia in their favor.

Malcolm Z

no one a-50 was shot down, it was a il 22 which was damage ( no proof of a-50 downed such as fire on ground) and in this case the plane can also be a il 76 or beriev a-40/42 which has the same tail

i don’t think it’s possible. i heard those a-50 are crazy expensive and most of components are not possible to find anymore because of sanctions. so i don’t think russia has ability to create a-50 any more.

suuuuuuureeeeee…. russia cant produce shit. they need to invade latvia to steal washing machines to produce a 50’s… suuuure.

this incident is being widely reported on western media outlets. yes it is possible that a friendly fire could have resulted in this crack. it appears from the video that the crew were aware of an incoming missile and used their flares. if this turns out to be yet another nato attack then russia should without delay arm the houthi army in yemen to sink any western military shipping in the horn of africa!

just confirmed: biogenetic killer bee wmf attack on russian air defence forces, thus causing the friendly fire incident. all due to nato generals in us ukrainian biolabs working endlessly with israhelli jew nazi scientists in odessa, harvisting ukrainian childrens mojo and with the expierence of the covid fake vaccines creating super dangerous, brain damageing psycho killer bees.

Joe Biden

the plane was shot down over russian territory. and to assume it was friendly fire is very naive, when in doubt aren’t there radio communications to identify aircraft? more likely it was downed by a patriot missile itself and it’s proof that the real range exceeds the advertised 160km. ukraine is now claiming it was a s-200 missile; again it’s in their interest to troll russia and keep it guessing about what really happened.

hash

Malcolm Z

some s-200 during soviet times had semipassive terminal radar mode to hit awacs planes like antiradar missile kh-31, range 250km and warhead 217 kg.

Joe Biden

ok, interesting info. in that i wonder what is giving that s-200 its targeting information. i doubt its dedicated 70s era radar can see that far into russia.

Malcolm Z

soviet p-18 ml radar which have been upgraded by many countries included czech, lithuania, serbia and belarus…using metre length waves vhf can detect a il 76 from 300km.

captain hohol

supposedly they’re integrating that radar with the patriot detection system. either way, nice trick, but it is only kicking the can down the road, ukraine is literally in the same position they were in when they lost the civil war.

uaf don’t have the manpower to take territory, so the uaf is relying on gadgets, i think russia should start testing nato and chuck a few nice sub kiloton iskanders around just to scare the ‘hols and let them know they’re entering a new level of conflict.

Joe Biden

so if i understand correctly s-200 has a bigger range than patriot pac-2 but flies slower, which explains why the a-50u had time to drop so many flares. it could have been saved if there was an interceptor jet around. it’s time to stop thinking of ukraine as substantially weaker than russia. in some respects yes, but not across the board. ukraine has better vision of the battlefield and access to sophisticated technology thanks to nato, which allows them to pull off such ambush attacks.

Frommyprespective

how could it be a friendly fire shoot down when russian air defense systems would know the squawk codes and position of their own aircraft? saying it’s a friendly fire shoot down is an embarrassing escape hatch for “we don’t know what happened”. obviously these aircraft are very effective at what they do, otherwise they would not have shot down another one.
