If it were a TOW your smoke trail would be one solid line, not choppy. That smoke is coming from hits.
The explosion you've chosen to focus on is a secondary.
The TOW talk is just propaganda.
A TOW would have obliterated the tail.
Ignoring the opinion of two in the know guys. You just want this to be a TOW to fit whatever narrative.
Eat: Yah, go fill screen you see the smoke puffs from rockets being fired. That also lends to TOW, they never saw or detected it coming. And it exploded aft on impact wth the tail, not center like a heat seeker hitting the engines or exhaust cowlings.
TOW engine is designed smokeless to prevent obscuring the target in the view finder, i.e., no smoke trail.
TOW blasts are HUGE. Which is not what we saw. We saw explosive AA hitting the tail, the oil under pressure in the tail rotor gearbox flash ignited(due to hot magnesium in the shell) and that's were you get your fireball.

There's plenty of "evidence". It's evident that isis is claiming responsibility is it not? That's a start. It's no proof but the claim itself is a form of evidence.
