Afghan Mi-35 Pilots Once Again Patrol the Skies

The Afghan National Army Air Corps recently reached a milestone with the completion of the Initial Operations Capability Mi-35 attack helicopter program. American and Czech Republic mentors recommended the Mi-35 program to the Ministry of Defense to provide security, show force and patrol the skies of Afghanistan. The accomplishment required many hours of practice and training, but careful preparation was important when utilizing such a powerful aircraft. The Mi-35 is a heavily armored aircraft, yet streamlined. It sports a 12.7 mm Yak-B Gatling gun.
