A group of Ka-52 attack combat helicopters was tasked to prevent the redeployment of the units from special operation forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) across Dnepr river and to eliminate the enemy forces that were carrying out an offensive near Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
The crew detected a barge of AFU servicemen aboard 15 km away using a search and track system and launched two Vikhr guided missiles. The leading rotorcraft impacted the bow and the guided one impacted the afterpart.
The target was neutralised by high-precision launch of Vikhr guided missiles that prevented the enemy from landing and capturing the strategically important facility.
