Ace Combat 2Edit
The Mi-24 Hind, identified in-game as "MiL-24" is one of three attack helicopters in use (the others being the AH-64A Apache & RAH-66 Comanche) with the URF. They are encountered in missions such as 'One Night Stand' and 'Cavalry'.
Ace Combat 04: Shattered SkiesEdit
The Mi-24 Hind-E is uncommonly seen under use by the Federal Erusian Air Force.
More of these helicopters can be found in the canyon during the attack from Stonehenge in mission "Deep Strike", where a squadron takes off from the solar plant at Faith Park. They are seen again in mission 10, "Tango Line", where another formation takes off from the mountain bases at the eponymous Tango Line. Their last appearance is in the mission "Emancipation", where they can be seen attacking the tanks in the southwest region of San Salvacion.
Ace Combat: Assault HorizonEdit
- "An assault and attack helicopter that is a mainstay of the Russian Army. Highly durable because of its heavy armor, it is also appealing because of the abundance of weaponry loaded on board. The unique rounded shape of the nose is a notable feature and it is referred to by the NATO codename "Hind." In addition to anti-tank combat and close air support, it has a wide variety of uses including the transportation of military personnel and goods."

Complete the Campaign
In Ace Combat: Assault Horizon's single-player campaign, the Mi-24 Hind is first encountered in the missions "Shockwave" and "Red Moon", where it is used by the SRN. Several Hinds are also used by the New Russian Federation forces when the battlefield changes to Russia, appearing in "Motherland".
The Mi-24 is the Russian counterpart to the AH-64D Apache Longbow, and the main aerial enemy faced in helicopter missions. The aircraft is armed with homing missiles and a dual barreled GSh-23L autcannon. It can be also seen equipped with rocket launcher pods, which they will use at close range.
In close range, they will attempt to hit the player with their main gun, and will follow them around in an strafing motion while doing so. In the other hand, getting too far away from a Hind will make them use homing missiles, which are impossible to evade outside countermaneouvers, but can be shot out of the air. A Hind's health can be measured by looking at the helicopter's exhausts (the purple spots by the canopy), which will explode in flames as the aircraft takes damage. Once it comes to grief, the Mi-24 explodes and breaks apart at the rear section.
The Mi-24 Hind is unlocked for player use after the main campaign is completed, along with the PAK FA. The third available helicopter after the MH-60 Black Hawk, it is similar to the AH-64 in combat performance, with the added advantage of a larger weapons payload and stronger armor. However, the Hind possesses very limited mobility compared to the Apache Longbow, and is less stable. The variant in Assault Horizon is called the Mi-24VP, which was a Mi-24V-mod which replaced the Yak B. 12.7 mm machine gun with a dual-barrelled Gsh-23L autocannon.

- The Mi-24 makes a small cameo appearance in Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception. In a cutscene, a single Leasath Hind is portrayed along with ground forces, as seen in the picture.
Ace Combat: Assault HorizonEdit
- After a Hind has been destroyed, one can inspect the wreckage up-close and see the canopy partly shattered and its interior covered in the pilots' blood.
- In all three colors, the word "опасно", Russian for "dangerous", is present in the tail broom.
- The firing sound of the Mi-24's gun was the sound used by the AH-64D's in the E3 2011 and September public release demo. However, the latter was changed before release, and the original sound was reused for the Hind.
