I thought this was cool and just had to share it.

"The story is: this very special Mi-24 helicopter is presently flying in Afghanistan, where it is no doubt causing quite a stir." ~the e-mail i got this from.

wafu, it doesnt make a difference, crazy fighters in the Middle East will shoot a rocket at it anyway, whether they think its a helicopter or a bird. Don't you know about the top notch education they have over there?

aaahhh yes ... we had hoped that the Iraqis would run in fear, but apparently they are not as impressed by our "flying machines & horseless carriages" as we had hoped. lol ....

If this was in fact taken in Afghanistan, it would have had to be in the 80’s. The MI-24 (Hind) is a Russian Helicopter. Why would their paint job bring up the American budget? Also If you look at the first picture, those are obviously Russian uniforms. Why don't you read up and get back to us.

Oh, but you are obviously up on your Biology. You are correct in stating that Birds don't have rotor blades. :)

Where are you talking about?

Afghanistan or Iraq?
Not me!

I was talking about the American war budget.
I don't care where that picture is taken.

Of course it is a kind of dazzle paint.
It is meant to take care for a surprising moment...

"What the hell is that!?"
The hesitation will cost a few pygmees their lives ;)

You're full of crap. You thought the hind was one of ours and you know it. Why don't you just admit when you made an ass out of yourself?

DG posted regarding an MI-24, and attached some pics HERE

That might just be the most ridiculous helicopter I've ever seen... Got to be some kind of a joke! A 5000+++ kg eagle with rotors making at least 110dBA and possibly shooting at you... No-one could ever be fooled with that one.

not quite. I was just browsing snopes today and look what i came up with.

http://www.snopes.com/photos/military/eaglecopter.asp

Common as it may be to assume that any neat-o piece of military hardware must be American — especially when it's painted to look like the same type of bird that serves as the U.S. national symbol — the helicopter shown here is not American, nor has it been used by U.S. forces in Afghanistan or Iraq.
