    Most of the Helis in the video don't have heat suppressors.......I thought those things were standard on the V5's although they have the metal plate to shield pilots from direct fire :confused:

    Putting those shield also cause aerodynamic drag coz loss of speed so put of when not needed..

    Plates are put to prevent 7.62x51mm rounds or even bigger rounds..

    A powerful machine and timely too.

    However, the NDTV commentator seems to overdo the hyperbole.

    The Kargil context was a bit thick!

    Such misrepresentation degrades the gravity of the commentary.

    The Mi-17V-5 weapon systems
    The helicopter is armed with Shturm-V missiles, S-8 rockets, a 23mm machine gun, PKT machine guns and AKM sub-machine guns. It features eight firing posts for aiming the weapons.

    The onboard armament allows the crew to engage enemy personnel, armoured vehicles, land-based targets, fortified fire posts, and other fixed and moving targets.

    It's hard to tell at a first glance that it's an Mi-17 derivative.Or is it ? Correct me if I'm wrong
