Great documentary on the Mi24 development.

The video also explains the reasons behind the fitting of the GSh 30 mm cannon on the side and not as a turret mount.

This is totally fascinating. I was worried it was going to be a dumbed-down TV show with a robot English voiceover but in fact it's a serious documentary about the Mi-24 with amazing archival photos and film of Mikhail Mil, the Mi-24A, interview footage with Marat Tishchenko, arguments between "the customer" and Mil about components, and all sorts of other niche Soviet military helicopter stuff. Marat Tishchenko recalls that Mikhail Mil called the embryonic Mi-24 concept the "VBMP", at least to himself. 🙂 Thanks for posting!
