The HIND Mi-24 D/E Report : SOTO Mac

The HIND is an Assault Helicopter, carrying a large weapons load, but also capable of transporting up to eight troops. Its high speed (it is still one of the fastest assault helicopters in the world) and Fighter-like agility, is provided by powerful engines and rotor design. Its cabin provides room not only for eight servicemen, but also for extra ammunition and fuel.

It saw extensive service in Afghanistan and has also been exported to many countries. Numerous modifications affect mostly armament and electronic equipment. The second production version of the Mi-24 the Mi-24A resulted in elimination of the co-pilot position.




Starting in the Mi-24 D model, the well-known nose with two tandem 'bubbles', may now be seen on all Mi-24s. New set of avionics (including sophisticated wind direction sensors) were introduced to improve Weapons Aiming in quickly changing Combat situations.

To improve survivability in Land warfare, the rotor blades aluminum structure was replaced by steel spars and fiberglass skin. The New titanium hub is designed to resist 20mm cannon strikes, and has armored wind-screens. Many other aluminum parts were also replaced by titanium or steel, making the Mi-24, a Helicopter which is "more difficult to shoot down than any other".

Mi-24 D also carries the improved Phalanga-P Anti-Tank Missile complex, incorporating a Raduga-F ( Rainbow-F ) Semi-automatic guiding system. This upgrade allowed doubling the accuracy of a strike. Gyrostabilizing guidance systems allowed the Helicopter's maneuvers within +/-600 yaw. The Remotely Controlled Machinegun -USPSU-24 - was also linked to Gyroscopic systems to introduce Automatic Aiming Correction.
