EFP with canted fins is the answer you are all looking for.

I'll let the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center explain things.

Wow thanks Blue, that's an eye-opening read. I was under the impression that the EFP was essentially molten, and the issue was that it dispersed over distance. From the document and concept of fins it's clearly a solid object until it strikes the target!

I have more. How the canted fins are formed.

tl;dr Syncronised seperate explosives

It's actually because of you I went looking, you said in an earlier post that EFPs couldn't form while in rotation and while not knowing anything about about EFPs it didn't sound right to my engineering brain.

It's liquid for the split second after the charge blows i would have thought. Then solidifies quickly and flies straight down.

It seems very odd that the Mi-8 would return within seconds of the Hind being hit. Seems unnecessarily risky

Five hours ago, Al-Masdar News broke a story regarding ISIS militants downing a Russian helicopter at Huwaysis, northwest of Palmyra city.

Now, the Russian Ministry of Defence has adressed the story, stating that the Russian aircraft was temporarily downed due to technical failure and subsequently struck by an Islamic State ATGM crew, leaving the helicopter destroyed.

A representative of the Russian MoD stressed: "The crew was not injured and was promptly returned by a search-and-rescue helicopter to the Hmeymim airbase".
