One Su-25 and four Ka-52 helicopters: Ukrainian soldiers of the 47th Mechanized Brigade “Magura” destroyed several aerial targets using the Swedish RBS 70 MANPADS

July 10, 2023

The 47th Brigade “Magura” has received Swedish RBS 70 man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems.

Here’s What We Know

The information was shared by the brigade’s press service. The RBS 70 is already operating at the front. Apparently, it was with the help of Swedish MANPADS that Ukrainian fighters destroyed one Russian Su-25 attack aircraft, as well as four Ka-52 attack helicopters.


The RBS 70 is a man-portable surface-to-air missile system developed in Sweden by Bofors Defence (now Saab Bofors Dynamics). The system uses laser-guided BOLIDE missiles. They are capable of engaging targets at ranges up to 8km and altitudes up to 5km. Man-portable air defence systems have a recharge time of only 2 seconds.


  1. This is a very nice, and, as we see, a very effective addition to Ukraine’s frontline air defense weapons. I hope they have plenty of them to give the mafia aircraft hell.

  2. Magnificent tool for the AFU inventory!
    I think the orcs that ordered the hit on Vinnytsia was killed! Almost a year ago little Liza was killed by a missile launched by the ruscist BSF. I pray the Krasnodar sub is also demilitarized avenging her and others.

  3. The russians are learning the hard way, how they did not know their opponents in Ukraine, and likewise the russians learned how they did not know themselves. Now, Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” says, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
    If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
    If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

    In Chapter Six: Vacuity and Substance, it says “ Water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which it flows; the soldier works out his victory in relation to the foe whom he is facing.
    Therefore, just as water retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions.”

    I expect that Ukrainian defense will be a study for many long years, of how to respond against the threat of tyranny.
