Mil Mi-24 military helicopter

Mil Mi-24 helicopter gunship on display at the Luftwaffenmuseum der Bundeswehr (Airforce museum of German Federal Armed Forces), Gatow, Berlin. Photo taken October 2006.
The Mil Mi-24 was first introduced in the Soviet Air Force in 1972. It had a production run of an estimated 2,000 and Mi-24s are currently still actively used. It has seen plenty of active duty and used in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Iran. I presume this example was one in use by the East German Air Force.
