Mil Mi-24V Hind Czech Air force RIAT 2007

The Mil Mi-24 (NATO reporting name: "Hind") is a large helicopter gunship and low-capacity troop transport produced by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant and operated from 1976 by the Soviet Air Force, its successors, and over thirty other nations.

In NATO circles the export versions, Mi-25 and Mi-35, are simply denoted with a letter suffix as "Hind D" and "Hind E" respectively. Soviet pilots called the aircraft "letayushiy tank" or "flying tank". Another common nickname is "Krokodil" (Crocodile) — due to the helicopter's camouflage and fuselage shape.

Mi-24V (Hind-E) - Later development led to the Mi-24V which was first seen in the early 1980s. It armed with newer ATGMs, like the 9M114 Shturm (AT-6 Spiral) with tube launchers. Eight of those missile are mounted on four outer wing pylons.
