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 Soviet Union's Mi-24 helicopter built on the success of the Mi-8/17 helicopter family was widely deployed in Afghanistan by the Soviet Army in the 1980s. These machines, also dubbed Crocodile, are suitable for both assault missions delivering troops behind enemy lines or attack missions taking out a wide variety of ground targets. In the 1990s, the Russian Air Force's Mi-24s were utilized to smash the rebellion in Chechnya. The Mi-25, Mi-35 (Mi-24V) and Mi-35P (Mi-24P) refer to export models. The Mi-24/25/35 assault/attack helicopters have been sold to more than 30 international customers becoming very popular by its effectiveness and ease of maintenance. The aging Mi-24 helicopters operated by Russia are expected to be replaced by modern Mi-28, Ka-52 and Mi-35M attack helicopters by 2020.
The original Mi-24 helicopters could be armed with 9M17/AT-2 and 9M14/AT-3 anti-tank missiles. The Mi-24D Hind-D in the 1970s introduced the stepped and armored cockpits of current models as well as an under-nose four-barrel 12.7mm machine gun. The Mi-24V Hind-E introduced in the late 1970s is the most successful Mi-24 production standard and is armed with unguided rockets and 9M114/AT-6 anti-tank missiles. The Mi-24VP in the early 1980s introduced a side-mounted twin-barrel 23mm GSh-23L cannon because operational deployment in Afghanistan proved that a 12.7mm was not effective to engage ground targets. The Mi-24P Hind-F replaced the GSh-23L cannon by a twin-barrel 30mm GSh-30K cannon. The Mi-24K and Mi-24RKR are Nuclear, Bacteriological and Chemical (NBC) reconnaissance aircraft.
