Ukrainian forces managed to shoot down a Russian attack helicopter with a STUGNA-P anti-tank guided missile system in Ukraine.
The footage shows Ukrainian soldiers engaging a what appears to be a low flying Russian KA-52 Aligator attack helicopter over a forest.
This footage seems to be the first official visual confirmation of a STUGNA-P ATGM use against a flying target.
While cases of ATGMs downing helicopters are rare they still occur from time to time.
The STUGNA-P is a remote controlled Ukrainian anti-tank guided missile system fully developed and manufactured in Ukraine.
It can engage targets to a distance of up to 5 km.
