Wow, that map of the massive debris field really brings home what a catastrophic event MH17 must have experienced at altitude.
I really don't think the 5lb warhead of an R-60 or whatever the Ukrainian SU25's carry for A2A ordinance would be capable of doing so much damage.
A proximity fused SA-11 detonating a 150 lb fragmentation warhead at mach 4 however looks much more plausible.
Thanks for sharing this.
