Mil Mi-24D, NATO name 'Hind' 96+26/421

C/n 230270110073 photographed inside The Helicopter Museum, Weston-super-Mare, on 20 April 2013.
Built in 1981 as a ground attack/assault helicopter and powered by two Klimov TV-3-117 turboshaft engines. This is the Mi-24D variant, some 350 of which were built at factories in Arsenyev and Rostov-on-Don. Armament includes a 12.7 mm four barrel 9-A 624 machine gun, four Falanga anti-tank missiles and 80 rockets in four underwing pods.
First flown on 2 April 1981 it was delivered to the East German Army based at Basephol, North of Berlin. In early 1992 it was decided to disband the Hind squadrons and its last flight was on 24 February 1992. The German Government allocated it to the Helicopter Museum and a team went to Basephol in early 1995 to dismantle and transport it to the United Kingdom. It was delivered to the Museum on 20 February 1995 with assistance from Bristow Helicopters.
