Let me guess your pic was lifted from a troll website no doubt littered with fantastic claims of how the helo was spoofed by superior Russian electronic wizardry! Let me guess that you also believe that the USS Donald Cook was disabled in the Black Sea by Su-24s with their electronic wizardry!

What frightened the USS Donald Cook back to port in the Black Sea? – The Millennium Report
But but, @Grey Fox told us he got it first hand from the person who jammed the GPS signal.

You’re suggesting he lied, are you?

It doesn’t surprise me, well we kne that anyway. But well done for tracking down the image.
 
1) Just compare two photos. There is the tail rotor on "my" photo, and it is no on the ddragoncompany's one.
2) Ddragoncompany don't tell us, why exactly pilot of the Apache suddenly decided to land in forest.
You muppet!

It is a cropped pic from the original.

Its look funny how diplomatically they missed the word 'noncombatant' between '1,000' and 'troops'.

US to Send 1,000 More Troops to Poland

"Last fall, Warsaw asked for a tank division. Looks like they're getting rotating logistics troops instead."

Russians will be happy, if USA repair Polish roads and bridges for their own money. And yes, it is a best thing for saving Polish people. Less time Russians need for conquere of Poland and continue their offence in West, less battles on Polish territory - more Polish civilians survived.
I know English isn’t your first language, but can you guess what ‘looks like’ means. Posting that comment, it ‘looks like’ you’re an idiot.

Your other posts are confirmatory evidence though.

So, is it official British version now? "We just flied over Estonian forests and suddenly decided to make a brief demo for our infantry. There was no any GPS jamming, sir, not any lost of orientation. You know, our infantry never saw Apaches in Britain, so it was absolutely necessary to make such a demonstration in Estonia"
Good try. May be, they understand that public (even British public) will not swallow another story about 'evil Russians'.
 
Wibble .........

You can't get out of the fact you lied.

We know you for what you are.

Apart from being an immature teenage dumb ass, you're a lying troll.

LOL. You idiot muppet troll! How did I guess that you would come up with such a crazy troll answer! Were you under pressure from your supervisor when you messed up? You are a laughing stock! Have you been reprimanded - moved away from the window seat in the troll factory? Come on spill the beans! Where did you first stumble upon the picture of the Apache that you posted? Perhaps it was a special briefing that you and your team got and you bought it hook line and sinker!

Did you find it on some Russian military or Russian military fanboy forum? Come on spill the beans. There must have been a nice little back story to the picture?

The question is why didn't you do a simple reverse image search on the picture before posting your drivel? It would have saved you looking like a complete idiot, but that isn't hard in your case! Has RT ran with the story or did even their Murad Gazdiev turn his nose up at it? Give him a bell he is gullible to believe it!

Don't worry if you troll hard you might get moved back to the window position? Chin up!
 
Some of my regiment is currently in Estonia under british Command

The Second Foreign Legion Infantry Regiment, 2 REI is a non-airborne brother regiment to 2 REP. Both Regiments used to be stationed in Corsica after the departure from Algeria, but 2 REI moved to Nimes in mainland France in 1983. It is a component unit in the French Sixth Light Armoured Brigade (6eme BLB), the precursor of which took part in the First Gulf War.

Dont be so upset. I heard two unofficial rumour versions:
1) Estonian: British Apache had technical problems, likely with navigation and/or communication systems caused lost of orientation and landing in the forest cleaning near British infantry (instead drills of air support)
2) Russian: this technical problems were caused by Russian ECM.
Because of my habit of fact-checking, I asked at the forum, and got the third, almost official British version:
3) there were no any ECM or tech failures, but planned lesson about short meeting about "What is Apache helicopter".

From my personal point of view first two versions are possible: any tech can misfailure, Russians sometimes use ECM.
British version is funny in both cases:
if it is true, it means, that British Generals send to Russian border soldiers, who are not only not trained to use air support, but dont have even a minimal understanding what is it a "strike helicopter".
 
Somebody's been desperately trying to save face.
And it ain't anybody on the western side of the Estonian-Russian Border.

:) of course. Apparently all Russian troops at all times in their tenure are told all about combined arms fighting, FIRES etc. They all know about calling in fire support from a variety of elements which may be attached to them or even be ‘on call’.

In reality, it’s nothing of the sort, but it won’t stop the trolls on their reversocycle

Ha! Almost as defenceone wrote, there is one thousand of logists (and few illiterate recces with drones).
President of the Republic of Poland / News / Joint Declaration on Defense Cooperation Regarding U.S. Force Posture in Poland

----------------------
A. Establishment of a U.S. Division Headquarters (Forward) in Poland.

B. Establishment and joint use by the U.S. Armed Forces and Polish Armed Forces of the Combat Training Center (CTC) in Drawsko Pomorskie, and eventually in a few other locations in Poland. The United States intends to continue to provide U.S. advisors to support the Polish Armed Forces in the establishment of the CTC.

C. Establishment of a U.S. Air Force MQ-9 Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance squadron in Poland. The United States intends to share information derived from this squadron's operations, as appropriate, in support of our defense objectives.

D. Establishment of an aerial port of debarkation to support the movement of forces for training or contingency.

E. Establishment of an area support group to support current and future U.S. forces in Poland.

F. Establishment of U.S. special operations forces capability in Poland to support air, ground, and maritime operations.

G. Establishment of infrastructure to support the presence of an armored brigade combat team, a combat aviation brigade, and a combat sustainment support battalion.
----------------
Sure, it does not mean, that Russia will not react on such unfriendly actions.
Lets wait what will say presidents of Russia and Iran after their todays meeting.

If Russia didn't make a habit of threatening its neighbours, none of this would be necessary.

If Russia will start war, that bases are useless too. They will be eliminated by the first Russian strike, before they understand that the war is already in a hot stage.
It make sense only if USA plan agressive war, and plan to start it with the sudden nuclear strike without formal declaration of war.
Septics are stupid - likely, Russia will make preemptive strike.
