|“|| Hind, prepared for war.|
- Mi-24 Hind
The Hind first entered service in 1972. Though old, its a well proven design that has been through many conflicts of the days gone by with almost three consecutive generations. It is armed with rocket pods to tear up armored columns, and a Gatling gun to deal with infantry. It also carries Igla air-to-air missiles for usage against enemy helicopters. Hind is an absolute nightmare for any ground target. it's near legendary toughness earned it the title 'letayushchiy tank', or flying tank among it's pilots, while victims of its wrath nicknamed it the "Crocodile" for its ferocity. Being very deadly, the Hind is also very versatile, able to transport up to 6 troops on the battlefield, making it both a transport and an attack helicopter. However this versatility and firepower comes at the price of slow turning speed and acceleration.
As the Hind is a dying breed, given its age and complex chassis, only less than 500 are in Russian service, slowly to be supplemented by the heavier Hunchback. General Orlov has found new love for the Mi-24D, using its combination of features for a multitude of roles, from assaults to transports and even protect and escort other helicopters against aircraft.
