The crews of Mi-8 and Mi-24 attack helicopters held exercises at the Russian military base in Armenia, the Russian Ministry of Defense reports.
The pilots were training to hit targets on the ground and flying the helicopters at high altitudes.
Management of Mi-8 and Mi-24 heavy helicopters in the mountains has its peculiarities.
It is necessary to carefully fly the machine over mountain ridges and peaks, taking into account the features of rarefied air. That’s why all flights were performed under the guidance of instructors.
