The Mil Mi-17 (NATO reporting name: Hip), known as the Mi-8M series in Russian service, is a Russian and former Soviet military twin-engined transport, gunship and electronic warfare helicopter. Canada operated four Mi-17V5 designated CH-178 in Afghanistan in 2010.
Developed from the Mi-8 airframe with the larger engines, rotors, and transmission, it first flew in 1975, entering service in 1977. It remains in service with approximately 60 countries and is manufactured under licence in China (Mi-171C). The flight crew consists of two pilots and a flight engineer.
Airframe construction is all-metal, mainly aluminium alloy, with a semi-monocoque pod, boom fuselage, a five-bladed main rotor, and a three-bladed tail rotor. Rotor blades are of lightweight alloy with some honeycomb components. Cargo is handled via a rear ramp or clam-shell doors, depending on the variant. The undercarriage is a fixed tricycle type.
The Mi-17 uses two Klimov VK-2500 turboshaft engines mounted side-by-side atop the fuselage, driving a five-bladed main rotor and three-bladed tail rotor. The Mi-17 had a top speed of 280 km/h (170 mph), a cruise speed of 260 km/h (160 mph), a service ceiling of 6,000 m (20,000 ft) and a range of 800 km (500 mi). Able to carry 4,000 kg (8,818 lb) cargo internally or 5,000 kg (11,023 lb) externally slung.
Six hardpoints on outrigger structures can carry up to 1,500 kg (3,307 lb) of stores, including bombs, rockets, guided antitank missiles and gun pods.
