Description: The MIL Mi-24, dubbed Hind by NATO, is a twin-engine, assault transport and gunship helicopter developed to meet the requirements of the Soviet Air Force. The Mi-24's design was based on the dynamic elements of Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopters. It is powered by two TV3-117 turboshaft delivering 2,200-hp of power each. The Mi-24 design focuses on speed and firepower while being capable of carrying up to eight fully equipped infantrymen or four stretchers for wounded personnel. The Mi-24 assault helicopters are armed with a 23mm or 30mm twin-barrel gun and can load a variety of rocket launchers and anti-tank guided missiles on its six underwing pylons to engage armored vehicles, personnel and fortifications or any potential target on the ground. The aircraft first flew on September 19, 1969, entering service with the Soviet Union's Air Force in 1976. The former Soviet Union and Russia have produced more than 1,500 Mi-24 family helicopters with an estimated less than 900 units remaining in service as of January 2015.

The multirole Mi-35M, also referred to as AH-2 Sabre in Brazil, is a major upgrade for the Mi-24V attack/assault helicopter incorporating the Mi-28's main rotor and transmission for enhanced flight capabilities. The aircraft also incorporates a thermal camera, TV channels, laser designator, laser rangefinder, a new navigation and avionics suite, and multifunctional color displays. The Mi-35M is able to use guided and unguided rockets and missiles in regular and extreme climate conditions as well as to conduct attack missions at altitudes of 10-25 meters during daylight or at 50 meters of altitude at night over land or water. The Mi-35M has been in production at Rostvertol plant since 2005 for the Russian Air Force and export customers and is expected to continue through 2020.

The Mi-35M is powered by two Klimov VK-2500 turboshaft engines rated at 2,700-hp each, fibreglass main rotor blades, main rotor head with elastomeric joints, a new swashplate and X-type tail rotor. The more powerful VK-2500 engines allow for operation in hot climates and high altitudes including mountainous terrain. The aircraft can load 1,500 kg internally or 2,400 kg using an external sling system. The Mi-35M's fuselage boasts shortened stub wings and fixed landing gear. All in, the aircraft features lower noise levels, greater combat resilience and reduces the workload on maintenance staff. The weapon system includes a nose-mounted twin-barrel 23mm cannon (GSh-23L) with up to 470 cartridges; up to eight 9M114/AT-6, 9M120/AT-9 or 9M120/AT-16 anti-tank guided missiles; 80 80mm S-8 unguided rockets or 20 122mm S-13 unguided rockets.
