The first production version of the Mi-24. During 5 years of production about 200 were built, differed from the prototype by 12° anhedral stub-wings added to improve lateral stability. Wingtips were used to accommodate four 'Phalanga' (Phalanx) anti-tank missiles, two on each side.
The operation of these helicopters, including combat missions, contributed greatly to their further development, upgrading and reliability improvement. Among other revealed problem was restricted pilot view in the 3-seat cockpit (gunner/operator in front, pilot and co-pilot behind him side-by-side).
Pilots and maintenance personnel were trained, both in-country and abroad.
Subtype without nose gun is designated 'Hind-C'
