    This reconstructed animated movie by the superbly talented Anurag Rana reconstructs the entire attack, pays homage to all air warriors, the men and their machines, of 152 HU - "The Mighty Armour" and 129 HU - "The Nubra Warriors",

    well Kunal sir sorry to ask a stupid question but can these old variants of MI-17 be armed with any anti-armor/air-air missile?i mean i have read somewhere in the internet that both MI-8/MI-17 can deploy AT-2 Swatter 9M 17P Skorpion anti-tank missiles.well actually i am a little confused about the new MI-17V helicopters recently acquired by the IAF,i read it somewhere that it can be armed with Ataka anti-armor missiles.is it true?

    A sequence of pictures (from top to bottom) shows an Mi-17 chopper approaching Tololing and letting loose a salvo or rockets. These pictures were some of the first pictures of the IAF from the battle front. One of the helicopters was shot down in the same area, the day after these pictures were taken.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    so what i read was right,IAF indeed used Chetak in anti-armor role.that means they are still being used in this role by the IAF.sir can you state the no. of chetaks deployed by the IAF for this role(sorry to ask you but i couldn't find any source to confirm the nos. in the internet).

    Hindustan Aeronautics Limited built over 300 units of the helicopter under licence as the HAL Chetak. They were primarily in service with the Indian Armed Forces in training, transport, CASEVAC (Casualty Evacuation), communications and liaison roles.
