Description: The MIL Mi-8, dubbed Hip by NATO, is a twin-engine, multi-role, medium transport helicopter capable of transporting troops and equipment or conducting ground attack missions. Besides, the aircraft is also suitable for civilian operators related to a variety of transportation roles. The Mi-8 was developed in the late 1950s and 1960s by the Soviet Union, first flew on July 7, 1961, entering service in 1967. The five-bladed main rotor is driven by either two TV2-117 or TV3-117 turboshaft engines rated from 1,700-shp to 2,200-shp allowing a top speed of 230-250 kilometers per hour. In addition to its crew of two/three men, the standard Mi-8 can transport as many as 24/28 troops. The Mi-17 was the export designation for the Soviet Mi-8. The Mi-171 refers to the modern production standard introduced in 1991. The aircraft design and technologies evolved over 60 years with the current production standards (various models) being far more sophisticated and performant than early models. More than 12,000 Mi-8/17/171 helicopters of all models were produced or are in production for the Soviet Union, Russia and international customers. As of November 2013, roughly 2,400 Mi-8/Mi-17 helicopters remain in service worldwide. In January 2015 that figure had increased to 2,469 aircraft with several models remaining in production beyond 2020.
The Mi-14, dubbed Haze by NATO, is an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) amphibious helicopter derived from the Mi-8 military transport helicopter and developed as the replacement for the Soviet Mi-4 helicopter. It is suitable for shore-based and ship-based operations as well as for mine countermeasures and search and rescue (SAR) missions. The Mi-14PL is equipped with dipping sonar, sonobuoys and a magnetic anomaly detector (MAD) in order to hunt down submerged submarines. The Mi-14's internal weapons bay can be fitted with torpedoes, bombs and depth charges in order to take out submarines. Powered by two TV3-117MT engines, each rated at 1,874-shp, the aircraft has a maximum range of 1,100+ kilometers and can achieve a top speed of 230 kilometers per hour. The Mi-14 prototype first flew in 1968 entering service in the 1970s. The surviving aircraft are deemed obsolete and may be replaced in the near future.
