Air base 378 is a comparatively new formation created half a year ago by uniting two military units.

Mi-24

Today there are three squadrons in the regiment: on combat helicopters Mi-24, on transport-combat Mi-8 and on special (electronic warfare) Mi-8.  The last ones were forbidden to be shot as well as the command centre.

Transport combat helicopters are represented by Mi-8MT. They are all rather old, dated the 80s. “MT” modification must soon be replaced with MTB-5.

  1. The Mi-24 will always be my favourite, it’s just so brutal looking. And just think about it, not only is it a heavy gunship, it can carry troops too 🙂

    • Mi-24P must be a mean machine 🙂
      BTW:Is there ANY good chopper sim with the mi-24? I’ve never seen any, but it would be a blast to play in Afghanistan during the 80s. Just think about all the deep valleys, all that terrain, just think about what graphics can be produced with todays computers…

      • Probably the Operation Flashpoint – Resistance with mods was the best with Mi-24, unfortunately in ARMA series they completely ruined the controls model for all the helis. And no new games come to my mind

    • Actually, that kind of blue-green colour is supposedly good for calming the mind. I believe it was decided to paint all soviet cockpits on that basis.

      • Ahem, I believe we call the colour “ryssblå” in finland-swedish 😉 Yeah, it means what you think it means: russian blue.
