Mi-8MT Hip-H 1/48 - Trumpeter
Mi-8MT entered series production at the Kazan Helicopter Plant in 1977. From the following year onwards it was powered by modernized TV3–117MT Series III engines. At first the number of helicopters powered by TV3–117 engines was considerably smaller than the number of the preceding versions with TV2–117s, but hostilities in Afghanistan prompted the Soviet military to reconsider their ordering policy, and by the mid-1980s the Mi-8MT and its derivatives became the plant's main product. By 2001 the Kazan plant had turned out more than 3,000 helicopters powered by TV3–117MT and TV3–117VM engines.
In 1981 the Mi-8MT made its international debut at the 34th Paris Air Show. For advertising and marketing reasons the export version was allocated a new designation, Mi-17,It has six external hard points. The Mi-17 is provided with missiles, bombs, small arms and cannons.
