In the late 1,970 Mi-24 became the main attack helicopter of the Soviet Armed Forces. New helicopters get on coming.
Mi-24 export versions were being delivered abroad, not just to Warsaw Pact countries, but also to the developing World.
And actually it was the export versions of Mi-24, which had the first real trial in combat. That happened in 1,977 during Ethiopian-Somali War in Ogaden.
Since then, Mi-24 had been in conflicts in many different parts of the World.
And today, the helicopter still maintains its reputation as one of the most reliable and powerful combat helicopters in the World.
