  1. Nice pictures some good ones of Mi-24s.The Mi-24 is not such a bad helicopter really it does not have a great power to weight ratio but if you read about its use in trained hands it can be a very effective weapon.Back in late 90’s and early 00’s the little nation of Sierra Leon hand only two Mi-24s flown by mostly South African mercenary pilots where able to cause serious havoc on Liberian backed troops many times the Mi-24s where the only thing alone that won battles.

  2. Awesome display of firepower! Would not recommend attacking or threatening those pilots or their country. All that and beautiful paint jobs!
