Another ATE Superhind Mk.V picture that I found.  I guess it's going the same way as the Mi-35 with the stubwing loadout.

EDIT: Now that I looked at it again, the pic seemed Photoshopped- the intake filters and underwing missiles don't seem all that natural.  Nevertheless, a relatively-clear illustration of how the Superhind Mk.V might look like......

The HIND was designed originally as an "assault transport" and has a small cabin for carrying passengers.  This makes it considerably larger than a dedicated attack helicopter needs to be.  Anyone care to have a go at designing a HIND without the passenger cabin?

Interesting idea - for some reason I keep imagining it with a significant weapons bay (maybe even replacing the wing pylons - thus keeping clean for high speed).  Maybe an arrangement similar to the RAH-66:

Greg,  that'd work but wouldn't you lose a significant amount of lift that the stub wings provide? You'd also need to clean up the airframe an awful lot to get any real stealth benefit if that was why you were doing it?

I would still keep the wings but would perhaps have them in clean configuration (or maybe not).

I wasn't really worried about stealth ...more interested in speed and firepower/persistence....oh and it just might look cool ;D.

It would be interesting to see a Hind modified with the payload bay like that.  Probably have a couple of internal hooks for bombs, missiles on the bay doors... yeah it'd be interesting.

Jschmus posted a pic of an early mock-up of the Mi-28 on page 1 that looks very much like a dedicated Hind gunship, the link's broken though.  Luckily, I saved it. :thumbsup:

EDIT deleted due to Jason fixing his link, have a look back on page one for this ugly beauty.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Mossie,

I didn't know the links were broken, but I went back and fixed them.  I haven't really been on Photobucket in months, and they've changed things a lot, not least my links and embeds and what-not.

Now I couldn't help to wonder what if the form factor of the Mi-28 is incorporated into the Mi-24...... like another interpretation of Superhind Mk.V?

No probs, I'll delete mine to save on photos. :thumbsup:

Found something cool:

Mi-35M with quad SA-7/14/16/18 launcher:


SOURCE (with link to much bigger version)

It looks like two of this twin launcher from this Mi-35M, just stacked:



The Hind itself might actually be the same one, just at different times with different sensor fits (note the EO turret).
