In the video we can identify several Mil Mi-24, Mil Mi-8 and Kamov Ka-52. They flew close to the water launching flares to avoid being hit by air defenses, but so low that at one point one of them hit the water and fell.

O Ka-52 is a Russian-made attack helicopter, produced by the company kamov🇧🇷 It was based on the Ka-50 developed in the 1980s and introduced into active service in the Russian Armed Forces in 1995. In 2008, the updated version, called the Ka-52, was launched by Kamov. Regarded as one of the most advanced helicopters of its kind, it is armed with a 30 mm automatic cannon in the nose, as well as air-to-ground missile launchers, and is also capable of hitting targets in the air. Each unit of this aircraft costs an average of US$ 16 million. It has a cruising speed of 270 km/h and an operational range of 545 km.
It is used as a heavy attack and escort helicopter, with strong armor and a variety of armaments. Its two coaxial rotors give it a lot of stability and maneuverability.
O Mil Mi-24, is a low-capacity attack and troop transport helicopter produced by the Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant in 1970 and operated since 1972 by the Soviet Air Force, its successors and more than thirty other nations. Its export designation is Mi-35.
Large in size, its most notable variants are the Mi-25 and Mi-35. Soviet pilots nicknamed this aircraft the “flying tank” (Russian: letayushchiy tank). Other unofficial names it received were Krokodil (“Crocodile”), after the new helicopter’s camouflage, and Stakan (“Crystal”), after the windows like large panes of glass around the cockpit of the first Hind A version.
In October 2007, the Russian Air Force announced that in 2015 it would replace the approximately 250 Mi-24 helicopters with the last three hundred thousand Mi-28 attack helicopters and possibly the Kamov Ka-52.

The first prototype flew in November 1982, with the first units only being delivered in 2004. The program had been canceled in 1993, in favor of developing the Ka-50. In 2003, the Russian air force command confirmed this helicopter would finally join the country’s military forces.
The Mil Mi-8 is a Russian helicopter developed in the 1960s to transport cargo or troops. The Mi-8 is one of the most produced aircraft in the world (about 17 thousand units were built), being in service in more than 50 countries.
