How The FIM-92 Stinger Missile Was Used To Take Down Russia’s Helicopter

FIM-92 Stinger missiles belong to the category of MPADS. Light, mobile, they can be operated by even one person (or formally two), they are extremely effective and dangerous weapons in the fight against enemy aircraft. These complexes were first used during the Falklands War, but became widely known thanks to the Taliban, which used them to shoot down Soviet aircraft. Thus was born the legend – the FIM-92 Stinger.
