Not totally sure but I think those trucks were linked to some company McCain owns.

That's not an Apache or any US helicopter, it appears to be a HIND which means it could be from the Iraqi or Syrian military.

Hinds have trouble hovering when loaded with anything, unless this is some modified version I doubt it's that. Doubt it's any euro helicopter in fact, they all have ground tone camo, often two tone.

Only we cheap out and paint it all black, no colors anymore I want them to turn black. If it looks like anything it's maybe Black Hawk, although the silhouette would fit an Apache as well.

That looks like its either A: too low resolution to distinguish, or B: a shitty video editing job.

Judging by the sound it is not Mi-28 nor Apache, most likely Mi-24. But it is entirely possible that the sound has been replaced, the video quality intentionally lowered, or it is not even ISIS on the video but some other guerrilla group. And a helicopter, in fact, may be a Turkish T-129 for all I know.

To me it looks like a distinct shape of an attack helicopter. Hinds and Hueys have a rounded box-like shape, blackcocks or even modern civilian aircraft are sleeker. The only way it could be a Hind is maybe if it's a Superhind from South Africa.

The entire thread argument makes no sense to me. CIA can certainly buy a few Hinds, knows how to fly them, and we know about their cooperation with terrorists for awhile now. Video is nothing special to get panties in a twist for.
>> No. 33427 ID: 67d391
>>33425

Makes sense to me, the T-129 is virtually indistinguishable from an AH-64 or Mi-28 at a distance without having one seriously keen eye. In fact all modern attack helicopters are virtually indistinguishable and all have nearly the exact same silhouette without being able to resolve details of configuration like cockpit, pylons, engines and exhaust etc...

Plus we all know Turkey is secretly helping IS or anyone who will kill Kurds for them.

Also, no markings on the convoy and no other identifying information including time/date, route location, or anything really besides "generic line of toyota technicals" which describes... every force in the entire region.

Video is utterly useless and meaningless in any strategic sense, and is 99.99% likelyhood of false flag agitprop deployed by anti-US forces.

The windshield seems to be one piece, that right away discounts a lot of aircraft, and suggests perhaps a civilian

It looks like it has a slightly drooping tail, at least in the flying configuration

tl;dr it's likely a Hughes 269B

This.

Plus it just makes sense, Turkey is the only one to have a attack helo out there in this area that looks like this.

The two look pretty darn similar and I am almost certain it is the T-129.

And if anyone would be running guard duty on trucks going to ISIS who else would it be but the main supporter of arms and material flowing to ISIS but Turkey. This is probably payment for all the oil they have been buying and wanted to make sure it's delivery would be secure.

That... is absolutely not a Hughes 269 or a Schweizer 300 series airframe.

I've flown more of those fully-articulated pieces of shit trainers than I care to remember. That is not one, there is a 0% likelyhood from the silhouette profile.

Your options are in the 80s-90s era attack helicopter configurations, which are all pretty much indistinguishable unless you can resolve very specific details on them.

Most likely, its a T-129 because only Turkey would be stupid enough to do that, aside from flying top cover for ISIS... seriously what fucking moron noob rotorcraft pilot flies like that in an area swarming with MANPADS and just makes a tight little orbit at about 100ft AGL around a piece of sand off from a highway. It's like "HEY SHOOT ME! I AM A BIG EXPENSIVE TARGET!" without actually providing any security for that convoy...

Really makes me think its edited video, to be honest. I can't figure out what the pilot is trying to even do there, though the video doesn't really show anything... it just feels off to me, like I wouldn't be flying that way to begin with.

Still looks closer to a commercial aircraft of some sort

The tail looks too tall in relation to the length of the boom, which extends from the top of the fuselage, for it to be a T-129. No indication of landing gear either.

The compression is really bad, but I'm certain it's a Hind.

Besides being basically all toyota's, how do we even know the white trucks are Daesh?

There's no way to tell any of these people apart without walking up and asking them.

I say we just drop a JDAM on any and all Toyota pickups.
