The Mi-24VP Hind-E is an improved version of the Mil Mi-24 "Hind" Soviet attack and transport helicopter. The Mi-24VP sports dual 23mm cannons mounted in a ball turret under the nose of the aircraft, along with eighty 80mm rockets and four Kokon-M ATGMs.

Overview and tacticsEdit

  • Decently priced and with a good availability, the Mi-24 Hind-E is not to be blown off. The Kokon-M missile sports an above-average accuracy of 55%, a rare range of 2800m, and an AP of 22. The helicopter itself comes with a strength of 10 and 1 front and side armour, making it much more durable then any NATO Attack Helicopter.


In the middle of the 1960s, while the Western countries considered the helicopter to be used mainly as a transport and rescue machine, the Soviet Army considered them to be the airborne counterpart to main battle tanks.

Heavily-armed versions of the Mi-8 Hip were in service in those years when the Mil bureau started working on a new prototype called the A-10. This new helicopter, designed primary for anti-tank combat, began tests in 1970 and was seen for first time by NATO in East Germany in 1972. The A-10 soon reached a speed record of 368 km/h.

The first versions used a standard cockpit layout, with the pilots seated side-by-side, but in 1975, the Hind-D entered service, with the now traditional attack helicopter cockpit in a tandem configuration.
