What can i say. This bad-ass attack helicopter not only can kick ass on the battlefield, it can also carry passengers around. It has been in every major Soviet Conflict snce its maiden flight in 1969 and its introduction in 1972. It still remain relevant and has been the icon of soviet attack helicopters, including being featured in Command and Conquer Red Alert.
I love its airframe and cockpit structure and it will definitely stay relevant as a support attack helo for years to come.
Enjoy the pic of the Crocodile of the Sky.. or the "Letayushiy Tank"
The rotors are able to be seen as rotating in this pic due to doing a few snapshots after I rotate the rotor manually.
See ya next week.
