We are in the place where Mi-24 helicopters that have been put out of operation are spending their final days. The Mi-24 was a first tactical machine designed by MI and was in production until the 90s. After the collapse of the
USSR, the manufacturers of different parts of the helicopter were separated by the borders of the newly formed ex Soviet states. These helicopters were nicknamed "Crocodile" by the pilots and I wonder if you can see why.
