This video takes a look at Russia’s Mil Mi-24 ‘crocodiles’ attack helicopters. They are armed with dozens of missiles and take off every day to patrol the base in Latakia, to ensure the terrorists are kept away from Russian installations.

The Mil Mi-24 (Russian: Миль Ми-24; NATO reporting name: Hind) is a large helicopter gunship, attack helicopter and low-capacity troop transport with room for eight passengers. It is produced by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant and has been operated since 1972 by the Soviet Air Force and its successors, along with more than 30 other nations.
