The blow of the Russian "Crocodile": spectacular shots from the cabin

The flying Kalashnikov was the so-called Mi-24 universal attack transport helicopter, which, like the AK assault rifle, became one of the symbols of the military-industrial complex of the USSR.

So it turned Mi-24 - unpretentious "Crocodile", well-proven in many conflicts around the world.

The helicopter was actively shipped to the Warsaw Pact countries. At the moment, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic are armed with more than 40 Mi-24 various modifications. The latter also operates 20 Mi-35 helicopters. Czech Air Force regularly use "Crocodiles" in military exercises. One of these spectacular moments was filmed.
