In the name of whatever you people hold as holy, stop throwing around the word MANPADS. The word has left its technical description, and has simply become a finger-point against America. It’s a lazy acronym.
Meanwhile, in Iraq, Turkey, and Syria; the bulk of weapon systems deployed are based on Russian design platforms.
The guided missile fired by the Communist PKK Guerilla fighter in the video is an old Russian SA-16 Guided Missile, Surface to Air (SAM,) or MANPADS if you’re a hipster, or if your parents are siblings. The SA missile system is something the PKK acquired through their own Communist networks and arms dealers – you know where they get all of those AK’s, PKMs, RPGs and other Russian-based weapon systems.
