Mi-17 entered service in 1975. It’s an improved Mi-8 with more powerful engines for 'hot and high' conditions. NATO calls it "HIP H". The Mi-17 can be recognized by its being tail rotor at the starboard side instead of the port side. The Mi-17 added a number of improvements to its predecessor, including a vibration damper to increase comfort for crewmembers and passengers. The helicopter features a high thrust-to-weight ratio pair of TVZ-117MT or TVZ-117VM shaft-turbine engines with a takeoff power of 1,900 hp. The Mi-17 can carry up to 30 troops and up to 20 wounded; it can also be used for in-flight unloading of special cargoes. Interior seats are removable for cargo carrying. The rear clamshell doors open and an internal winch facilitates loading of heavy freight. The aircraft carries a rescue hoist capable of handling 150 kg. External stores are mounted on weapons racks on each side of the fuselage. The Mi-17 has six external hard points. The Mi-17 is provided with missiles, bombs, small arms and cannons.
