PostSubject: Beta-Two-Four Mi-24 Helicopter Unit   Mon Jul 12, 2010 12:05 pm

Beta Two Four is a Mil Mi-24 large helicopter gunship and low-capacity troop transport produced by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant. It has two top-mounted turboshaft engines driving a mid-mounted 17.3 m five-blade main rotor and a three-blade tail rotor. The load-out mix for a Mi-24 is mission dependent; Mi-24s can be tasked with close air support, anti-tank operations, or aerial combat. The body is heavily armored and can resist impacts from .50 caliber (12.7 mm) rounds from all angles, including the titanium rotor blades. The cockpit is an even more heavily armored titanium tub and can resist impact from 37mm cannon rounds. The cockpit and crew compartment are overpressurized to protect the crew in NBC conditions.
