'US Stinger or Soviet Strela': Heat-seeking missile that downed Su-25 jet probed by Moscow

'US Stinger or Soviet Strela': Heat-seeking missile that downed Su-25 jet probed by Moscow | 05 Feb 2018 | A Russian Su-25 warplane was likely shot down by a heat-seeking missile, senior official Vladimir Shamanov said. As Syrian forces try to reach the crash site, Moscow has launched a probe into the origins of the fatal weapon. The existing evidence clearly indicates that the Russian Su-25 plane, shot down over Syria on Saturday, was hit by a heat-seeking missile, the head of the Russian lower house Defense Committee and former chief of airborne troops said. The exact type of man-portable air-defense (MANPAD) system used, however, could be only determined upon examining the remains of the plane, which crashed in a militant-controlled area.
