In November 2016 my book "Mi-24" was released by the german publishing house MOTORBUCHVERLAG.
And so it looks. 207 pages full of informations and photos. (Weight 1.050 gram, for our american friends more than 2 pounds.)
Written in german language.
Some guys asked me here in the forum, whether there would be an english edition.
And here it comes:
published by Schiffer Publishing in January 2020
the history of Mi-24 development, from the first steps of the "flying Infantry fighting Vehicle" concept,
over the Mi-24 prototypes
to all Mi-24 versions (21 at least).
A walkaround and detailed description of the Mi-24.
The armament, including short development history of guns and missiles used by Mi-24s.
The Mi-24 tactics developed for the war in Central Europe (written after east german Mi-24 combat drill manuals)
The soviet tactics in Afganistan and the fight against the Stinger.
A short comparision between Mi-24 and american attack helicopters of the timeframe (AH-1, AH-56, Sikorsky S-67 Blackhawk, AH-64A)
The Mi-24 in worldwide use with focus of Germany, but of american use of Mi-24 too.
Hope you enjoy it!
