    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.

    Looks really cool
    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

    These traditional nosed ones don't have the space. It should be useful for flying as well. It could also be a retrofit by us like in sea kings

    The postioning of this would preclude its use by the pilots IMO. It looks like it will be used for ground survelince only (like the Sea King EO balls).

    + If you notice this Mi-17 has emergency floatation gear which suggests it is used for short ranged coastal duties (limited SAR or surveillance) much like the Sea Kings. The IN and ICG really need to have their air wings (especially helo fleets) expanded MASSIVELY.
