Me think it's an Igla-1V, a modified variant of SA-16 Igla (Short range AAM, issued from the MANPADS).

I remember an Air Force Monthly article describing Mi-24s used by an US military aggressor unit which said that they mounted Stinger missiles on the Crocs in the same manner as depicted in the picture.  Wouldn't be inconceivable that this is inspired by the Soviets themselves.
To the individual soldiers, *everything* is a frontal assault!

I can't remember how I came by this image, it might've even been on here, but I downloaded it in the last week or so.  It's a Venezuelan Mi-35M.  The wingtip mount looks a little crowded.

And it's not even filled to capacity!  :o Mi-35M can use the launcher for 8 ATGMs the Mi-28 uses (which the Venezuelans also ordered!).

I have seen that top pic plenty of times and NEVER even noticed that tube! Great catch!  :cheers:

Same here! :lol:

Regarding AAMs on Hinds, how about this?



This was a prank by the armourers. The way it sits there, it's not possible to launch the Aphids, but I reckon it wouldn't be too much of a hassle to properly wire the AAMs.
Found in THIS THREAD over on Keypublishing Forums.

Thanks for sharing that Mi-35M pic! Lots of interesting details all over it.  :cheers:

That's because it's not actually the wingtip mount.  The latest Hinds had the end of the wings chopped off.  They're now more stub wings.  See?  Only 2 stations per side instead of 3.  They didn't make the outer stations stronger, they cut them off completely.

Cheers,

Look again- the rotor is still 5 bladed.

The nose gun was replaced with a twin-barrel 23mm cannon.

The old 3-blade tail rotor was replaced by the 4-blade scissor rotor like the Mi-28 has, though.  Also, in a weight-saving measure, the gear no longer retracts.  It helps altitude and maintenance, but hurts top speed and aesthetics.

Cheers,

Logan

How would a version of ATE Superhind Mk.V with four R-60s have sounded?
