I remember reading an article about the Hind a couple years back. One of the weaknesses was the location of the engine exhausts. They were located in the top center of the fuselage right under the main rotor. To top it off the exhausts did not have IR
suppressors. When the Hind took a hit not only was the engine damaged but other systems such as the transmission and main rotor.
Never take financial advice from co-workers.
