Syria: Russia reports loss of Mil-28N Helicopter gunship.

(Homs)  The Russian news agency RT has reported that yesterday that a Russian  Helicopter Gunship  (A Mil 28N Havoc)  has crashed whilst operating over the city of Homs inside Syria resulting in the deaths of the 2 man crew. The Russian media is reporting this as a mechanical fault, however that said Gunships do operate close to the ground and can be shot down especially in built up areas where they can be suckered in, as the US found to their cost in 2007
