- Mi-35 Hind
The Mi-35 Hind is a versatile air transport. Though slow, it has heavy armor, good transport capacity, and a nose canon for defense against light vehicles and other helicopters. It can be upgraded with FFAR Hydra rocket pods and AT-6 Spiral missile launchers (High Treason only) for more firepower.
When fully upgraded, the Hind is a flying doomsday device. Heavy armor, transportation, quick to gain experience, and great damage makes this unit extremely useful on almost all accounts… provided you can tech it up. Considerable money and time should be invested when researching both of the upgrades and deploying the Hind itself. It should be used in pairs or more to fully benefit from it. However enemy fighter aircraft and anti-aircraft helicopters remain as serious threats.
The Mil Mi-24 (NATO reporting name: Hind) is a large helicopter gunship and attack helicopter and low-capacity troop transport. In NATO circles, the export versions, Mi-25 and Mi-35, are denoted with a letter suffix as "Hind D" and "Hind E" respectively.
he Mi-24D was a purer gunship than the earlier variants. It entered production in 1973. The Mi-24D has a redesigned forward fuselage, with two separate cockpits for the pilot and gunner. It is armed with a single 12.7-mm four-barrel Yak-B machine-gun under the nose. It can carry four 57-mm rocket pods, four SACLOS 9M17 Phalanga anti-tank missiles (a significant enhancement compared to the MCLOS system found on the Mi-24A), plus bombs and other weapons.
An infantry unit that is selected will load into the Mi-35 Hind. Ability cannot be preformed if all the Hind's transport slots are full.

By instead pressing the V key and designating a location on the map, the Mi-35 Hind will first move to that indicated location and unload there. Ability cannot be preformed if all the Hind's transport slots are empty.
| FFAR Hydra rockets|
Costs $2500. Hind helicopters can fire a powerful FFAR Hydra rocket salvo. Very effective vs structures and vehicles.
| AT-6 Spiral missiles|
Costs $3000. Hind helicopters fire a powerful anti-tank guided missile. Very effective vs structures, vehicles, and helicopters. High Treason only.
