Description: MIL Mi-24 is a twin-engine, assault transport and gunship helicopter developed to meet the requirements of the Soviet Army. It is based on the dynamic elements of Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopters. It is powered by two TV3-117 turboshaft delivering 2,200-hp each. Mi-24 design focuses on speed and firepower. It is equipped with a 23mm or 30mm twin-barrel gun and can accept rocket launches and missiles on its six underwing pylons.
Mi-24, dubbed Hind by NATO, was widely deployed in Afghanistan by the Soviet Army in the 1980s. In the 1990s Russian Mi-24s were utilized to smash the rebellion in Chechnya. Mi-25, Mi-35 and Mi-35M are Russian export models. Mi-35M features MIL Mi-28 Havoc's main rotor and transmission. Mi-24/25/35 have been sold to more than 30 international customers.
In the early 1990s the Russian Army selected Kamov Ka-50/52 attack helicopter as the replacement for Mi-24 against MIL Mi-28 Havoc. Around 10 Ka-50s were delivered to the Russian Army but the economic turmoil in Russia put on hold the Ka-50 project. In the early 2000s Kamov made public that the Russian Army would resume Ka-50 production in the 2005-2006 timeframe.
