Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the Hind more of a maneuvering fighting platform, as in it isn't really design to fight while hovering? It could of course, but just not where it's strength lies. If that is the case, I wonder how difficult it will be to fight and fly at the same time. I guess it wouldn't really matter as long as you're multi-crew. I'm a little worried about how this will work in SP while trying to learn this beast.

I do have roughly the same impression, from stuf I've read sometime ago - while the AH-64 Apache could target and shoot its targets from hovering position, the Mi-24 Hind was more "vocated" for hit and run tactics.

Standard doctrine was to use guns and rockets in a running attack and ATGMs from a Hoover or slow flight at ,ax range.

BIGNEWY can you answer the question fully please? Or at least state that you do not know the answer. I'm sure you don't want to be responsible for providing misleading information, so some clarification would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
