Usage in battles

The Mi-35M is very good at long-range sniping in tank realistic battles. While playing the distance game, it is important to make sure the chopper does not stay stationary when picking out and shooting at targets or else the Mi-35M will become an easy target. On the other hand, in air battles, the Mi-35M is amazing at sniping enemy helicopters within a 5 km range.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great missile speed (ATAKA missiles) making it easy to use and aim
  • Great 23 mm cannon damage
  • IRCM and Flares making it practically immune to enemy AAMs
  • Igla AAMs, flare and IRCM resistant and good against enemy jet aircraft

Cons:

  • Relatively low ammo reserve on 23 mm

History

The Mi-35M is a modern utility combat helicopter of the Russian army, manufactured by Rostvertol helicopter company. At the moment, the Mi-35M is the most modern modification of the Mi-24 series. During its versatile service in Afghanistan, India, and other locations, the "Hind" performed well but had few vital flaws. A modernized version, titled Mi-35, underwent specific improvements. The helicopter gained new more powerful engines, the metal rotor was replaced by a composite one, the 3-bladed anti-torque rotor was replaced by an X-shaped composite one. The Mi-35M was given fixed landing gear and new shorter wings with only four weaponry mounting points. The weapon itself has also been updated: A 4-barreled 50.cal machine gun in the chin-mounted rotating turret is now replaced by a twin-barreled 23-mm GSh-23L autocannon. Mounted weaponry now consists of two types of ATGMs, modern air-to-ground unguided rockets, 23mm cannon pods, and other changes. The Mi-35M is currently in service in the Russian Air Forces, and other nations. Russian and Iraqi Mi-35M-s fought in recent actions in Syria.
