During Afghan War military insisted on arming Mi-24 with heavier barrel artillery. At the time there were no movable turret for such a powerful cannon, so two-barrel fixed GSh-30K cannon was installed on the right side of the fuselage. Despite less flexible aiming (whole aircraft has to be aimed!), this modification was highly praised by flying crews.
The export version is designated Mi-35P.
At present new 'Ataka' anti-tank complex comes to replace 'Sturm' guided missiles.
