A recent video recorded near Palmyra, Syria shows a Russian Mi-28 “Havoc” helicopter conducting extremely low attack runs against ISIS positions. As the helo approaches, a fighter accurately opens up on it with what appears to be a Chinese W-85 12.7mm heavy machine gun. While it’s impossible to tell if any hits were made, the tracers indicate that he was at least extremely close. The pilot wasted no time in vacating the area.
