According to "Messenger of Mordovia", Powerful drums delivered to the Syrian air force Mi-24P helicopters. Recently, one of these vehicles, which carried out bombardment of the positions of terrorists, was spotted in the skies over Daraa.

Syrian Air Force delivered Russian Mi-24P


The equipment so far has the old XQUM number of the Russian VKS, along with the newly added number of the Syrian Air Force, 30.

This model is significantly superior to the old Mi-25 in service with government forces. The Mi-24P uses a twin 30-mm cannon, long-range Storm-B missiles and another arsenal of various unguided weapons.



Prior to supplying the Mi-24P, the Syrian units were equipped with helicopters armed only with large-caliber machine guns and capable of using outdated versions of anti-tank guided missiles with a relatively short flight distance.

Mi-24P helicopters were mass-produced from April 1981 g. As shown by the actual use of the machine, in some cases the power of the GSH-30K was excessive, a 23 caliber gun would be quite sufficient for some operations. The helicopter was exported under the designation Mi-35P.

      It’s possible for Americans to sponsor any rabble and “accidentally” lose their weapons, dropping them in the wrong direction, but is it not in our interests to help Syria? So what do you think?

      Syria will pay. Moreover, this is a budget option - the supply of obsolete equipment removed from service of the Russian Armed Forces. Otherwise, this helicopter would rot for some time (not very long, we did not learn how to store aviation equipment) on the basis of storage and would go for disposal.

      Yeah - like the Germans at one time on the Yu-87 and ours on the IL-2? bully The machine gun stuck in long lines, and the initial version, still conceived by Millem, was supposed to be with a 20 mm swivel spark and was implemented after the Afghan company, and continued on the Mi-35. So they completed the “intermediate” version with a pair of two guns from Gryazev. Well, what they handed over to the Syrians was right. We made up for the losses with our own working machine and work on lightly armored vehicles and just vehicles - with a margin. Now it’s really flying BMP , like, deuce, "The main thing is to make new cars faster.

      GSH-2-30 set to fight tanks

      "... Characteristically, the YakB was not powerful enough to defeat more or less armored targets - it is not for nothing that in the States and their allies similar 12,7-mm rotary machine guns are usually placed only on light unarmored helicopters such as Kiowa and UH-60 for police officers and counterguerrilla tasks. But GS-30, on the contrary, poured power over the edge (right, because it was attached to the right side and ruined the centering). ..
      ... Thanks to the characteristic sound of the propeller and severe appearance, the helicopter is able to exert pressure on the psyche no worse than the famous Ju-87 with its siren. According to the American marines, who bought a subject in the GDR after the collapse of the scoop and use it for training, this is the only helicopter that makes you want to snuggle to the ground and not shine. In Afghanistan, brave helicopter pilots, having shot BC, just flew on a shaver above the battlefield, from which donkey ... would run away in a panic - it’s hard to keep the bricks in yourself when a hefty armored pterodactyl, all hung with weapons, dives at you with predatory scream ...

      the author is right, from Soviet times export vehicles were designated as MI35 (mi24) and MI17 (MI8), it’s like after Algeria abandoned MI 35 and they were crushed by the Russian Air Force, the name MI25

    the gun is just freaky - it hits from two km of an armored personnel carrier for a take-off. And what will happen to the jihad mob column is scary to imagine
