CVO Army Aviation Brigade replenished with two Mi-24P helicopters


According to the report, helicopters arrived at the airfield of the unit on their own. Pilots of the Mi-24 helicopter squadron previously underwent training at the Combat Training and Retraining Center for Army Aviation in Torzhok.

Multipurpose attack helicopters will significantly increase the combat capabilities of the army aviation brigade. Mi-24 crews will perform tasks within the framework of flight tactical exercises, as well as be used in various tactical exercises from company to brigade level

- said in a statement.

The press service noted that the first six MI-24P helicopters received the army aviation brigade in December last year, and in March four more helicopters of this type entered the brigade. In April, the brigades conducted the first flight tactical exercises with the participation of 10 Mi-24P. In May of this year, helicopter pilots received four more rotorcraft. Now, taking into account the new arrivals, the brigade is already armed with 16 new Mi-24P attack helicopters.

Mi-24 (according to NATO classification: Hind - "Lan") - Soviet / Russian attack helicopter developed by the Design Bureau M. L. Mil. The unofficial name is "Crocodile". The serial release began in 1971 year. The Mi-24P model differs from the base Mi-24 model by the presence of the GSH-30K gun placed on the starboard in the fixed installation НПУ-30. The serial release began in 1981 year. Exported as MI-35P.

The helicopter is designed for the transfer of ground forces and fire support on the battlefield.

    The arsenal of the brigade received two new attack helicopters Mi-24P. This was reported by the press service of the district.
    The district press service doesn’t catch mice at all? Or deliberately mislead people? It’s good that they didn’t write any analogs. With the help of deliveries of SUCH new weapons, just like the new BMP-1, T-72B3, etc. and the necessary number of rearmament with new equipment will be far-fetched by 2020.

      Well, given that the attack helicopter is carrying an assault force, it definitely has no analogues in our country, and in many armies too. Cheap, angry, but the last century.

      I already thought that Mi-35M (not to be confused with the export version), and of course Mi-28Н, Mi-28НМ and Ка-52, are coming into our troops. What means:
      The brigade entered service two new Mi-24P attack helicopters. This was reported by the press service of the district.
      Maybe modernized with all sorts of thermal imagers, i.e. Mi-35M? Tin !! And yesterday I lamented why we have not had strike-type drones up to 5 tons for so long, just against the bearded, so as not to attract a heavy UAV of the "Okhotnik" type. What for? There is an old proven Mi-24, which will be substituted by the side, and perhaps the crew will survive. In the late 90s and in the noughties, such brewery statements warmed the soul: reliability, unpretentiousness, security, etc. But today, is it really still easier to lose pilots than a piece of iron drone or cheaper than a crew in safety, shooting from a distance on a turntable, as ours in Syria have already shown vidosics from their monitors from the cockpit !!?! No, we will send the good old Mi-24 with Nursa into a frontal attack, and then the card will fall!

        They are coming. But first of all - to the Western districts. Then - to the East. And the central districts receive everything according to the residual principle.
        In the Union, by the way, it was the same: the best - in the Group of Forces and the western border, worse - in the East, and in the internal districts - as the last pig. smile In principle, this made sense - by the time the forces of the internal districts entered the battle, the enemy's best formations had to grind off the forces of the western districts, and all sorts of reserve units and territories, armed in approximately the same way, would fall to the share of the "internal" ones.

      So, about the previous delivery of the same Mi-24P, they also wrote that these were new machines. It's just that at the press service, everything that came to a part from a factory or from another part is considered new. smile

    Such news to itself, it would be better if they did not open their mouths. And the brigade is the only one and the helicopters were delivered as many as TWO !!! Newest! Drums! Maybe in Afghanistan in the 80s of the last century, they were the newest. It’s good if they didn’t grumble about "no analogue in the world", it would be funny at all.

      I have questions:
      1.If not Mi-28НМ, because still bring it to mind, why not Mi-28N?
      2. If not Mi-28Н, then why not Mi-35М?

        And I have the same questions. But there the whole brigade flies on the Mi-24P. So that's the answer. By the way, about the Mi-35, the pilots have conflicting reviews. I don’t remember exactly, but in the spirit of “For retraining on the Mi-28 it will do, but in a real battle I would go to the Mi-24” Something like dumb in piloting, etc.

          Well, I heard that too. It seems to me a matter of habit, psychology and plaque. If they perceive him as a school desk for Mi-28Н, then it turns out. And if they recall how they felt good in the old Mi-24P, where they shot by eye roughly, then Mi-35M annoys them with its LCD displays, a different design, etc. Maybe it makes sense to prepare pilots on the Mi-35M bypassing the Mi-24P ?!

            It seems to me that P-shki is supplied, because Rostvertol, which is the only serial enterprise for the production of the Mi-35m in the export version, is loaded with export and domestic orders for the domestic AA and Mi-28n. In addition, they probably take into account in planning 98 mi-28nm under a recent contract, so getting new mi-35m in tsvo, as it seems to me, is not a quick prospect. Basically, cars of new construction are driven to airbases of the Caucasian and western directions.
            There are repair plants in the country that, in cooperation with the manufacturer, carry out repairs and modernization of various MI-24 variants (for example, 419 ARZs and 810 ARZs). It seems to me that in order to relatively quickly build up the group in tsvo, they removed a certain amount of p-shek from storage and finalized it at one of the ARZs.

        Because most likely these are crocodiles from the availability, just past repairs with modernization. These are usually recorded as new. CVO - relatively rear, PM got worse. MI28 and KA52 enter the troops according to the schedule. Deliveries of crocodiles with modernization do not affect the schedule for the arrival of new attack helicopters.request MI24 we have the sea and they will be upgraded for a long time. Accordingly, they will stay in the troops for at least 10 years.

        Because it is CVO. Not a western district. And not eastern. And the central one is the last in priority.
        Say thank you for not giving Mi-8. smile

      Who in the world has analogues of this type of helicopter? This is a "flying BMP".

        So yes, and indeed there are no analogues. Is it good? HZ. Life has shown that as an infantry fighting vehicle, it was not particularly used. Just like an attack helicopter. And this is another song. Yes, and I meant in my post that he is just old, the rest is just for "paint"

    Judging by the photo in the text of the article, we are talking about the Mi-24PN with an additional observation and sighting station, but they seem to have been modified from serial in a small amount. Resumed modernization? Or is it all about the repaired and extended on the Mi-24P resource? Or export mi-35p modified to the requirements of domestic AA?
    Yes, and the photo seems to show improvements aimed at reducing the mass of an empty helicopter (fixed landing gear and a shortened wing), but the tail rotor is an old 24-pin three-bladed one.
    Publication leaves more questions than it tells.

      Apparently, this is true. Formally, this is a new helicopter from the factory. Well, the fact that it is morally obsolete is a philosophical question. The rearmament program for new weapons is being implemented. So you can resume the T-34 release, they will also be new from the factory! wassat

    In Ukraine, the Mi-24 was modernized for sale, so there is a radar and a gun in the rotary turret, and we have new arr. 1980 supply, yes.

      Well, there is no need to despair. After all, in Ukraine there is no: Mi-28 and Ka-52. Like our version of the Mi-35M. Just a shame for the CVO. There, for the rear, the old for some reason is most often sent.
