Rotorcraft Recognition Challenge: Name that variant!
Permalink  
 


Introducing another exciting game to jog your memory. Think you know ALL of the Mi-8/17 variants and what they were built for? This challenge puts that knowlege to the ultimate test! Post a photograph of a specific variant to whatever rotorcraft, and whoever guesses the variant's name and use correctly gets to post the next challenge.

Remember, no cheating by looking up the photo online or on this site!

Ready?

Name that variant!

The fuselage is extended on this one to accomodate more cargo apparently, but what variant has a longer fuselage? I don't think any are in service.

That's the navy version. This one is based on a much earlier airframe.

This is the German Mi-24D sold to Poland for the installation of a Hawk missile nosecone for testing the terrain bounce abilities of the SPS-141 jamming pod on the Su-22.

Hi scorpio213, nothing accurate is known but this could be a data link from the Hawk missile nose installation to a mobile laboratory setup inside the cabin to record results of the testing.
