                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I dont have much to say really except that the odds of replicating that are not that remote.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  However, I was reading another book about the Russians fighting in Afghanistan, see citation below, that said that stinger (USA) and Blowpipe (UK) missiles were common place in that conflict and were responsible for taking out 150-200 Russian aircraft.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  As such, this SA-18 attack is nothing new.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The book states that the Taliban penalty for missing 3 times, ie firing 3 rockets and not bringing an aircraft down was death.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Before their introduction in Afghanistan it was thought that their 18 step process would make them too complex for Taliban fighters to use but they were wrong and they were used effectivly in large numbers.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The stingers and blowpipes were so effective that the Russians had to alter their air strategy and often not fly. Where bominb runs had been carried out 2-3000 feet they had to be carried out at 10000 feet reulsting in less accurate attacks. Also, ground attack fighters would come in very low and were less accurate and less able to support ground operations. Also, many strikes had to be carried out at night.

The mountains are actually ideal for surface to air missiles as they already have the altitude and can fire at a lower tragectory.
