    Yes, the normal flight crew for the Hind is three and there is an access tunnel that goes from the top crew position (pilot) to the main cabin for troops where the flight engineer sits.

    I dont know if you recall info from last year - VDV was to receive "new flying tanks" to transport troops and being able to support carried troops. Is it going to be Mi-35M?

    Being super optimistic there was a promise since about late 1980s of a helicopter called Mi-40 or something which was a troop carrier equivalent to the Mi-28 the same as the Mi-24 evolved from the Mi-8 transport helo.

    On the drawings I remember it had unmanned remote operated gun turrets all round the place....

    Dreams are free...

    Nice video... if you look at 59 seconds in the video you can see the back of the pilot in the top rear seat from the troop cabin showing the access tunnel/section where the engineer normally sits.

    Not easy to see but there is a space directly behind the pilot where the engineer sits that is not in the cabin for the troops...

    .. a helicopter called Mi-40 or something which was a troop carrier equivalent to the Mi-28 ..

    Half a century later, the attack Mi-24 remains one of the best combat vehicles.
