Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in a helicopter, the features of using the helicopter in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 30 mm cannon provides great offensive/defensive capabilities against lightly armoured vehicles and air targets
  • Very flexible payload
  • R60M missile is very effective against close flying targets
  • 9M114 Shturm ATGM can be fired from 5 km away, making most AA useless
  • Has access to RWR, HIRSS, IRCM, flares/chaff and a ballistic computer
  • Can easily reach 300 km/h with a full payload
  • Armoured plates increase protection for the engine, transmission and the crew

Cons:

  • Large profile and lack of manoeuvrability makes it an easy target
  • Fixed 30 mm cannon may be hard to aim at air targets for inexperienced players
  • Lacks thermal and night vision sight for gunner

History

Mi-24 development started in the early 1960s by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant company, with a very controversial start. Several Soviet officers believed that conventional weapons were a safer choice to spend money in. But seeing the successful use of armed helicopters in Vietnam by the US Army convinced the Soviets about the capacities of armed helicopters, thus showing support for Mil's project.

Two prototypes were eventually created: a 7-ton single-engine design and a 10.5-ton twin-engined one. In May 1968, the twin-engine mock up was chosen for further development. The project made its first flight in September 1968, and entered service bearing the name of Mi-24 in 1972.

The Mi-24P variant was a later development of the Mi-24D, featuring a new fixed 30 mm twin-barrel GSh-30-2K cannon instead of the old 12.7 mm machine gun turret.

The helicopter first saw combat service in Ogaden War and in the Chadian-Libyan Conflict, used by the Ethiopian and Libyan forces respectively. The Mi-24 proved to be very effective in ground infantry support duties, even managing to save a company of infantry while out of ammunition, scaring the rebels by manoeuvring aggressively towards them! It was very popular among the ground troops.

The Mi-24P's modernized variant, the Mi-35M, is still in use to this day in various countries, including Russia.
