Osprey Colour Series (Aviation) : Soviet Battlefield Helicopters
The vast territories of the Soviet Union might have been specially created for the helicopter, and development of the modern battlefield helicopter began in 1947 when Stalin asked Mikhail Leontievitch Mil, chief of the TSAGI Helicopter Laboratory to submit proposals for a small military helicopter. Long before the West, the Soviet Union saw the possibilities of arming helicopters. Text by David Oliver.
