About the Mi-24 Hind Attack Helicopter

The Mi-24 “Hind” is a large helicopter gunship, attack helicopter and a low capacity troop transport with room for up to eight passengers. Primary usage and upkeep of the Hind is done by the Soviet/Russian Air Force, and more than 30 other nations have access to them. Soviet pilots often know the hind as the “flying tank”, due to its immense armor protection. To date, at least 2,300 units have been produced.

The core Hind was originally derived from the Mii Mi-8, or “Hip”, which had two top-mounted turbo shaft engines driving a mid-mounted 17.3 m five-blade main rotor and a three-blade tail rotor. The engine configuration gave the aircraft distinctive double air intake. The Mi-24 fuselage is heavily armored and can even resist impacts from 12.7 mm rounds from all angles. Ballistic-resistant windscreens and a titanium-armored tub protect the cockpit. The record-setting speed that the “Hind” can reach is 206.7 mph – designed for speed and mobility.

The “Hind” has seen active combat in numerous wars, including Cambodian-Vietnamese war, Soviet war in Afghanistan, Iran/Iraq war, Persian Gulf war, and modern middle-eastern conflicts.
