I noticed on the vids the Raduga sight (I assume) panning around under the chin of the helo has 'doors' that seem to cover and protect it.  What do they open only when it's in use to protect it? Anyone have info on it? They seemed to open and close several times

The doors are opened by the Co-Pilot/Operator when using the ATGM Periscope Sight. The doors are there to protect it from damage and dirt.

IIRC they also shut when firing the gun (at least in the Mi-24D/V).

Raduga-Sh have two pairs of doors for lens protection, first (visible from outside) are made from metal, then second pair made with armoured transparent glass.

Ever seen the state of  your windscreen after a drive on a summer day?  These aircraft operate at very low level.  Lenses stay covered and bug free when not in use.  Same reason TGPs are stowed on the ground, damage and bug splats can really degrade performance.
