The Mi-24 Hind.

The Mi-24 Hind is a Soviet heavy attack helicopter. It is heavily armored and armed, equipped with an array of deadly weapons. It can also carry up to ten armed troops, with an additional two door gunners. The Hind is considered to be a true killing machine, being densely armored and packed to the brim with destructive weapons, and being able to carry troops. Besides these features, the Hind literally looks terrifying, its structure and paint markings make it look like a killing machine, which by textbook military definition, it is. It notably served during Operation: Polar Glory, in Iceland, as well as in Operation: Red Storm, throughout Western and Northern Europe, most notably in Germany.
