Helicopter Called Crocodile

Posted on May 14, 2013 by team

Why is this helicopter called “crocodile”? Maybe because it’s the first thing which comes to your mind when you see it at the distance of some meters.The second thing which you think about is that you need to run away… immediately!

We are at the 344th Combat and Conversion Training Center of Army Aviation to have a closer look at Mi-24 helicopter.

    Oh, a Hind has been hit by a Sparrow in Afghanistan ? To whom belonged the F-4 who fired the missile ?

      Pakistan, I believe. Soviets had a few clashes with Pakistani forces in the area.

        Pakistan has never been in direct conflict with Russia, rather the people are more inclined towards Russia than compared to our Government here,,,, Moreover Pakistan never had a F-4 Phantom…

    Why it was called Crocodile?
    Because from some frontal angles, the twin air intakes look like the eyes, and the pilot/gunner cockpits like it’s snout.
    And beware when it’s after you! :D

    Unbeatable sinister design; any other combat helicopter looks just dull or clumsy compared to Hind.
