Synopsis

Synopsis

With its distinctive double-cockpit design, the Mi-24 'Hind' is arguably the most recognizable war machine of the Cold War, and has achieved near-legendary status in the annals of military history. The first Soviet helicopter to function as both a gunship and an assault transport, it served extensively in Afghanistan, and is now employed by militaries across the world.

Written by an expert on the 'Hind', and drawing on manufacturing and military sources, this book presents the Mi-24 in all of its brutal glory, from design and development to deployment and combat. Also included are a number of color plates showing the distinct paint schemes employed by various nations in a range of theaters and for different armies.
Praise

Praise

"Those of us who like to model things find books like this to be excellent references. Author Alexander Mladenov goes over the development and production of the Hind as well as the different variants ... Illustrator Ian Palmer adds his own art work and profiles to the goodly number of photos of the aircraft in both black and white and in color." - Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (Spetember 2010)

"Provides a fine survey of another Cold War fighting machine: this being the first Soviet helicopter to function as both a gunship and an assualt transport. Its experiences in Afghanistan and its use around the world is documented by an expert on the Hind." - The Midwest Book Review (November 2010)
