"Obsolete weapons do not deter."
- British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

The Mil Mi-8 (NATO reporting name "Hip") is a medium twin-turbine transport helicopter that can also act as a gunship. The first single-engine (AI-24W) prototype, W-8, flew on July 9th, 1961. A second one with two AI-24W engines made its first flight on September 17th, 1962. After few changes it was introduced into the Soviet Air Force by 1967 as Mi-8. There are numerous variants, including the Mi-8T which in addition to carrying twenty four soldiers is also armed with rockets and anti-tank guided missiles. The naval Mil Mi-14, and attack Mi-24 are derived from the Mi-8.

The Mi-8 is used by over 50 countries, including India, China and Iran; the latest variant, known as the Mi-8MT is more heavily armed and was introduced in 1981. The export version of this aircraft, known as the Mil Mi-17, is employed by around 20 countries.
