Without a doubt one of the coolest aircraft ever fielded, the Mi-24 Hind is something of a flying APC, allowing a squad of Air Assault troops to hit a target while providing close air support. I always thought it was an impressive aircraft and one I’ve always wanted to fly in. The closest I’ve got is an Mi-8 Hip in Afghanistan. A hat tip to my buddy Tactical Hermit out in TX on finding this short documentary on the boys from 160th SOAR stealing one back in the 80s.
