The Russians certainly know how to make cracking looking helicopters don't they? Can anyone tell me what the pattern on the rear door area is, I cannot work it out?

Well that's easy ;-) The pattern on the rear door is just a painting of the hyppo leg ... remember NATO codename for Mi-17? It's HIP - almost the same that Hyppo - the animal which was chosen as the "mascott" for those helicopters ... they kinda look like hyppos aren't they?
