Russian KА-52 helicopter accidentally fires a missile near civilian

Footage of an incident leaked online on Tuesday shows accidental rocket fire from a Russian strike helicopter hitting close to parked cars. The Russian military denied earlier reports on social media that the incident happened during the ongoing Zapad war games.

The department said that during the incident shown in the video “the targeting system of one of the helicopters erroneously locked on a wrong target. A hit by an unguided air-to-surface missile caused damage to a truck, but no people were hurt.” The military didn’t detail when or where this happened.
