    Combat chopper mishap

    A Russian combat helicopter mistakenly fires missiles at civilian cars, journalists, I believe, at the Zapad 2017 drills with Belarus

    Reportedly the incident happened on the 16th. Two people seriously wounded.

    It was a Kamov Ka-52 "Alligator"

    This could have been waaaay worse. That thing carries a shitload of firepower...

    Well someone's military career is in the shithole and probably worse.

    True. But I can't just blame the chopper crew.

    Fact is, they have, in many areas there, allowed various journalists and other civilian onlookers far too close to the drills

    It's dangerous. With military equipment and weapons, anything can happen, and these people can easily be injured and killed, as the incident in question demonstrates...
