Over 250 examples of the Russian Mi-17/171 helicopter are currently operational with the PLA (People's Liberation Army). The helicopters carry out transportation of troops, supplies and equipment to the battlefield. Other roles include air-to-surface attack, medical evacuation, airborne command post, refuelling, mine laying, search and rescue, spacecraft recovery, disaster relief, etc. The helicopters sold to China were unarmed, but the PLA managed to fit them with external weapon pylons similar to those used by the Russian Army. External stores are mounted on weapons racks on each side of the fuselage, with a total of six hardpoints. So far Mi-17s in service with the PLA have been seen carrying the 12.7mm machine gun pod, 57/68mm unguided rocket launcher, 250/500kg free-fall bomb, or TY-90 air-to-air missile according to their missions.

Please note: An optional display stand is available separately if you wish to display this model "in-flight".
