The Mil Moscow MI-24 Hind Attack Helicopter is the mainstay gunship of the Soviet Air Force (Russia) since 1969. Large and robust, MI-24 Hind also acts as trooper transport as it has eight (8) infantry capacity. It is heavily armored as it can resist 12.7mm round attacks to its fuselage. Aside from its native armaments like a 12.5mm gattling gun, dual-barrel autocannons, rocket pods and anti-tank ordinance, the Hind can carry submunition mines and other bombs. Once an easy target for anti-aircraft weapons, MI-24 Hind was upgraded with modern avionics, heat suppressor and latest computer systems.
