Production of the combat helicopter Mi-24V started in 1976.
This version was equipped with the radically new antitank missile system “Shturm-V” with guidance system “Raduga-Sh”, capable of striking targets with the highest accuracy – more than 92%.
In other words 9 or even 10 out of 10 discharged missiles hit their designed targets.
The Mi-24V excelled its American counterpart, AH-1S Super Cobra in combat efficiency.
From 1976 to 1986 about thousand Mi-24V were manufactured in the USSR.
These helicopters saw action during the Afghanistan conflict as a part of the Soviet Armies.
Many of them were exported in several countries allied with the USSR.
Nowadays the Mi-24V is still the backbone of the Russian Army Aviation.
