One of the most iconic helicopter gunships of the cold war, the Mil Mi-24 was widely exported throughout the eastern bloc as the Soviet Union armed its satellites in Europe and abroad. This Mi-24D is one such example, and flies the colors of the Czechoslovak Air Force. The "Hind" is one of the most heavily armed gunships ever made, possessing extensive payloads and a durable airframe, at the cost of low manoeuvrability. A pair of Klimov TV3-117V turboshaft engines give the helicopter good lifting power and decent flight speeds.

Description

GarageImage Mi-24D USSR.jpg


The ▂Mi-24D is a gift rank V Soviet helicopter with a battle rating of 9.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.81 "The Valkyries", as a store bundle, but was removed from sale after the 2019 New Year Sale.

One of the most iconic helicopter gunships of the cold war, the Mil Mi-24 was widely exported throughout the eastern bloc as the Soviet Union armed its satellites in Europe and abroad. This Mi-24D is one such example, and flies the colors of the Czechoslovak Air Force. The "Hind" is one of the most heavily armed gunships ever made, possessing extensive payloads and a durable airframe, at the cost of low manoeuvrability. A pair of Klimov TV3-117V turboshaft engines give the helicopter good lifting power and decent flight speeds.

General info

Flight performance

Describe how the helicopter behaves in the air. Speed, manoeuvrability, acceleration and allowable loads - these are the most important characteristics of the vehicle.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in a helicopter, the features of using 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).

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the helicopter in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
