Mi-24 In Macedonia

Tue Jun 12, 2001 12:09 am

The Mi-24 recently used against albanian terrorists, do they belong to the Macedonian Forces or are they leased or rented or whatever? If yes, are they piloted by macedonian pilots?

Thanks

Macedonia owes about 8 Mi-24 and 2 Ka-52 aligator.
Macedonian pilots fly them but because of the new big purchase of military aircraft Macedonia will (hyou , Ka52 Su-25 & other Mi 24) use some foreign pilots

Ka-52???? Are you sure???
If yes, have you a picture of it?
What kind of aircraft and helicopter did Macedonian Air forces ordered?
I thought before war they only have two or three Mi-8 which were used as gunship, is that right? And when war began, they boost their fleet with Mi-24 second-hand from Ukraine. But i didn't know they get some Ka-52...!

Cheers.

Thanks Guys,

I had a feeling they could be from Ukraine, but I didn´t know much about it...
Ka-52, that also sounds great!
The Su-25 would fit very well into the actual situation.

Cheers
