Ka-52 Shot Down by Anti-Tank Missile
Looks like they moved the laser onto the target in the last moment to avoid triggering the laser warning system.

Russian SAM site exploding on Snake Island
SAM cannot shoot down small suicide drones – the radar confuses them with birds due to their small size, low speed, and non-metallic fabric. The hit makes a surface-to-air missile fire off.

Correction to the above: It was a Ukrainian Su-27; probably hit by friendly fire.
