    How come it crashed with a bird in the engine, shouldnt it fly with one engine?
    Or did both engines get birds in them?

    Bird hits have been known to take out even four engined aircraft, they don't' need to be sucked into engine, hit in the wrong spot is often enough

    Considering it is in process of taking off, most probably it didn't have enough altitude to save plane. RIP to the crew.

    Could easily have been more than one bird too... birds sometimes fly in groups...

    RIP to crew.

    Dare I say it, they should have ejected and saved themselves and let the plane crash... nobody will go to the funeral of a plane...

    Russian Ka-52 has crashed in Syria earlier today. Both pilot & WSO died as a result, bodies have been recovered. MoD claims technical malfunction, Kommesant source that it might have been shot down by hostile MANPADS.

    As I have said countless of times, Kommersant is total fucking shit and sorry George, but posting it reduces your credibility by a huge portion.

    No evidence needed. Just trying to make money from a story over dead people due to a malfunction. They should be shot.

    Agreed. Kommersant is pure trash, making claims without any real evidence it's basically the National Inquirer of the CIS, especially considering that of all the CAS aircraft that the Ka-52 is arguably the least susceptible to be defeated by manpads. RIP to the pilots.

    Ka-52 has DIRCM suite and should be one of the hardest targets to be shot by MANPADs. I alos think it most likely BS.

    Of course it was. It crashed near Syrian Army positions. It would have been rather easy for them to know for sure if it was shot down or not.
