Air War over Ukraine (nothing graphic!)

Post by Krishty »

As terrible as these events are – as developers of combat simulators, we should use these scenes as references and hope that we never see them in reality again.

Please no blood / bodies / etc; have respect for the people fighting there.

Damaged KA-52
After an emergency landing outside of Kyiv; pilots escaped.

Video of the very same heli:


Plane exploding
Over Kyiv; seven seconds between flash and bang. Plane type unknown; most likely a Russian SU-27. This is brighter than I expected.


(at 0:45 into this video:)


Attack Helicopter shot down
Russian attack helicopter has been downed over Vyshhorod (north of #Kyiv). Pilot can be seen with his parachute left of the smoke.

Any air war has been pretty much one way due to overwhelming superiority in numbers on one side.
From a simulation point of view, I'm not sure has any attempt been made to model the civilian population in such a scenario.

That's a fairly complex ejection system on the Ka-50/52. I had to read up on that.
