The Mil Mi-24V, NATO code name Hind, is a large attack gunship helicopter which entered service with the Soviet Air force in the early 1970s. Nicknamed the “flying tank” by its pilots, the Mi-24 rotor blades and glass panels were resistant to 12.7 mm rounds, and could withstand significant damage from smaller calibre rounds. The Hind saw extensive use during the Soviet–Afghan War, and is still in current use by 58 countries, including the Russian Air Force in the recent Russo-Ukrainian War. The Hind also serves as a low-capacity troop and utility transport helicopter when needed.

Manned by a crew of 2, with room for 8 passengers, the Mi-24V is armed with a flexible 12.7 mm Yakushev-Borzov Yak-B Gatling gun, in addition to an extensive array of bombs, gunpods, and missiles on its wings.
