Despite of various stories around on the net this helicopter was never used neither in Iraq nor in Afghanistan and belongs to the Hungarian Air Force. 117 was repainted into this special livery in September 2000 for the first airshow at Szentkiralyszabadja helicopter base.

This is an awesome chopper. The angle of the shot shows it off to good advantage. Too bad it's not being used in Afghanistan.

When i looked at the picture, i could immediately imagine a great big bird! the yellow front with the brown line curves just like a beak. the detailing of the feathers with the various shapes and shading make it immediately obvious that it is an eagle! the talons do look like they could catch any kind of pray and hang on to pick it up. it is too bad that it is not a us military paint job. three cheers for the hungarian air force!

To answer the comment, "Too bad it's not being used in Afghanistan," it was used in Afghanistan -- by the Soviets -- then the US sold the Afghans stinger missiles to shoot them down.

It never was used in war. it's for air shows.
