    I have to admit, retractable gear Mi-24s look far more aesthetic.

    All the above plus it's a good contingency in case SHTF and one need's to land asap, possibly having taken severe damage in electrics/hydraulics. Better than belly landing this monster of a chopper.

    Lighter, cheaper, simpler, less maintenance, and the fact that it is always deployed which means it offers better energy absorption in case of a crash.

    The negatives are it does not look quite so cool, and it reduces the top flight speed slightly... but then so does hanging rocket pods under the wing pylons so that is not such a big deal really.

    The main reason for fixing the landing gear on Mi-35M/M3 is for safety. In the past, there was some cases Mi-24s got combat damage or problems then could not extend the landing gear when landing and got serious accidents.

    More mi -35 on its way.

    “Within the framework of the agreement on military-technical co-operation with the Russian Federation in 2018, the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Kazakhstan plans to conclude a contract for the supply of Su-30SM multirole aircraft, and until 2020 it has planned to purchase [additional] Su-30SM aircraft and Mi-35 helicopters,” the MoD in Astana told TASS without providing further details or the number of additional aircraft to be procured.

    Upgraded version of the Mi-35M combat helicopter with the Vikhr-M missile system

    JSC "Helicopters of Russia" presented at the Kubinka International Military Technical Forum "Army-2018" an upgraded version of the Mi-35M combat helicopter. The main difference of the new version was the introduction into the armament of the helicopter of the 9K121M guided weapons complex "Vikhr-M" with a missile 9-A-4172K "Vikhr-1" missile with an automatic laser beam guidance system and a range of up to 10 thousand meters. Now the Ka-52 combat helicopters are equipped with the Vikhr-M missile system.

    The upgraded Mi-35M helicopter is also equipped with a modified search and sight system OPS-24N-1L, the basis of which is the gyrostabilized round-the-clock optoelectronic system GOES-321MK. The missile complex "Strelets" with guided missiles 9M342 "Igla-S" air-to-air missiles is also included in the armament.

    The helicopter is equipped with the on-board defense complex "President-S35". In addition, VOR / ILS navigation and landing equipment, VIM-95-35 as well as the VND-94 radio range-meter for measuring the distance between the helicopter and ground-based radio beacons can be installed as additional equipment on the helicopter.

    The new Mi-35M helicopter for the VKS of Russia


    In the "Military Informant" group of the social network "VKontakte", photos of the factory flight tests of the Mi-35M combat helicopter built at Rostvertol PJSC (part of the Helicopters of Russia JSC) for the Russian Aerospace Forces are published in Rostov-on-Don. The helicopter, which has an airborne number "41 blue", is equipped with an airborne defense complex "Vitebsk".

    Apparently, these photographs indicate the resumption of production at the Rostvertol Mi-35M helicopters for army aviation of the Russian Aerospace Force. Recall that previously, the Russian Air Force (VKS) under two contracts of 2010 and 2011 received a total of 49 Mi-35M helicopters in 2011-2014, but then their production for the VKS was discontinued (in 2017, five Mi-35M helicopters for aviation FSB of Russia).

    I actually think it's important for Russia to have a mix of all three combat helicopters (ka-52/mi-28/mi-24/35. ) all have there uses advantages and disadvantages. I see the hind as a good all purpose attack helicopter with added bonus of light transport/cargo and a good robust rugged design that's also fairly cheap to buy and maintain. 

    I suspect it will be around for at least another decade or two.  be interesting when or if they will ever have a replacement.

    The twin 23mm cannon in the nose is a popular gun pod option for the Russians, so it should be rather potent as a chin turret weapon too...

    I agree... the Hind shares components with the Havoc, but is different enough to be a useful addition for forces.

    BTW interesting cheek mounted sensor... the way it sticks so far out suggests it looks forward as well as sideways...
