BUAA VT-UAV  = Haiou

Mi-8MTBP and Mi-17PP = Hip-H EW3

Mi-8MTSh2 = Hip-H EW4

Mi-17PI and Mi-8MTI (Mi-13)   = Hip-H EW5

Mi-8MTSh3 = Hip-H EW6

Mi-10 = Harke-A

Mi-10K = Harke-B

Mi-28 = Havoc-A

Mi-28N = Havoc-B

Mi-24VP = Hind-E Mod

Mi-24RA = Hind-G1 Mod

Mi-35M = Hind-J

Ka-25PS and Ka-25IV = Hormone-C

Ka-31 = Helix-E

Ka-226 = Hoodlum-C

 

Hind-G1/2 are AKA Hind-G Mod-1 and Hind-G Mod-2 despite no sole G type (that we know).

Some problems here.

Haitun - not a NATO/ASCC code name. This was Harbin's nickname which coincidentally starts with a letter H.

Haiou - Also a coincidental nick.

Hind-J - fanboy BS.

Hind-III - major fanboy BS.

Hip-H EW3/4/5/6 - what's the point of the EW designator? As if it needs to be indicated as an electronic warfare type even when others lack such a specific name? The only source I can find using this practice is Wikipedia which makes it highly dubious.

You may be right about Haiou as I cannot find much data about it, but Haitun and the others are true.

They are mentioned in several other places. Also I note that you added Hind-III in your list, very clever. I agree that it is nonsense but from where did you retrieve it?

 I don't get the stigma behind sourcing Wikipedia. Just because it's open-edit that doesn't make it less reputable, and I especially vouch for it because of the strict regulations they enforce on accurate information.

I wouldn't be so quick to reject "Haitun". I can't find definitive evidence to support either side of the argument, so that one should be left open until we have the facts. "Haiou" however might be coincidental like you said. It doesn't fit the naming sequence being a UAV. But again that's open to speculation.

I agree with Hind-III being fake, but Hind-J is mentioned in several places leaving it open to speculation. The Hind-III name was something Hesham dug up alongside a fake Mi-53 designation (obviously a mix up of Mi-35) no evidence for it exists.

 Except that it does. Some vandalism goes unnoticed on more obscure articles and the mods have been known to hold biased viewpoints towards some edits. There is little done to enforce a neutral environment even with the millions of rules and regulations they have. Sometimes they go on about being able to prove something other times they just throw it to the wind. It's a good start for researching a subject, but you'll find it best to seek out other sources for your info to confirm its validity.
