German Attack Helicopters Over The Front

Post by Edward L. Hsiao » 09 Jun 2019 09:17

Are there any ground attack actions of attack helicopters of the German Bundeswehr in Afghanistan and Syria going on for the past few years including this year? I know that these German attack helicopters carried cannons and anti-tank missiles.

There are no german troops in Syria. In Afghanistan there was one reported action of Tiger helicopters on May 4th 2013 in the Baghlan area when german special forced came into a Taliban ambush and asked for an air strike. The Tigers fired missiles against Taliban positions.
One Tiger helicopter was lost due to an accident on July 26th 2017 in Mali (UN-Mission MINUSMA).

Finally! I like German military aviation in the action of armed combat planes using their weapons against the foes. I'm been studying about German military aviation of WWI,WWII,the Cold War,and the War Against Terrorism for many years now. I'm a fan of the Luftwaffe.
