BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 A.M.) – The Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed, tonight, that both crew members of the Ka-52 Alligator Helicopter were killed while flying a mission in eastern Syria.

“When carrying out a planned flight over the eastern regions of the Syrian Arab Republic, the Russian Ka-52 helicopter crashed. Both pilots were killed,” the ministry revealed in a statement.

“The cause of the incident could be a technical malfunction,” the ministry added.

The bodies of the pilots were found by search and rescue crews and taken to their operating base.

The chopper was flying over the vast Syrian Desert tonight to attack an Islamic State (ISIS) force before crashing near the Syrian Army lines.

Wow! Ka-52 is the only chopper you can eject from! Rotor’s fan are getting ejected before you bail out, just like the (fake) Tiger-chopper in Goldeneye James Bond movie!
