The Mil Mi-17 (NATO reporting name "Hip") is a Russian designed helicopter. Derived from the Mi-8 Hip, the Mil Mi-17 was designed for the Soviet War in Afghanistan, and was the basis for the Mi-24 Hind. It appears in Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2: Special Forces. Many were sold to communist countries such as China, North Korea and Vietnam
The Mi-17 is the MEC's main transport helicopter. The Mi-17 can hold up to six players; the pilot, two door gunners and three passengers. It's counterparts are the USMC MH-60S Knight Hawk and the PLA Z-8.
Like all transport helicopters, the Mi-17 should mainly be used to carry squad members or others into a combat zone. Its large carrying capacity can carry up to 5 passengers, enough to carry at least half of a squad. It is also quite resilient as well, as it can take many bursts of machine gun and AA-gun fire before it goes down. However, this can be bypassed by the use of surface-to-air missiles from stationary and mobile AA, air-to-air missiles and cannon fire from aircrafts, and rockets, chain gun and/or AGMS from an opposing attack helicopter. These weapons can deal large amounts of damage to a Mi-17, enough for lesser threat weapons to finish it off.
Fighting a dogfight with an Mi-17, or any other transport helicopters, is not recommended, as the vehicle's slow speed, low maneuverability and considerably weak armament will make it an easy target for opposing aircraft that come into contact with it. However, it is possible to take out the opposing aircraft if one of the gunners shoots a well-aimed burst of machine gun fire at the cockpit of the other aircraft, which can kill the operator.
The Mi-17 is also great for offensives on bases that don't have much anti-air support, as the Mi-17's resiliency against small arms fire and its considerable speed can help to take out most of the infantry and soft targets in the area. With the 'funnelling' technique, gunners aboard the helicopter can effectively put suppressing fire on given targets. โจมตีโลกโจมตีไทย |name=Vehicles/BF2 |group1=Main Battle Tanks |list1 = M1A2 Abrams · T-90 · Type 98 · Challenger 2 (Euro Force) · Leopard 2A6 (Euro Force) |group2 = Infantry Fighting Vehicles |list2 = LAV-25 · WZ551 · BTR-90 · BMP-3 (Special Forces) |group3 = Light Vehicles |list3 = Desert Patrol Vehicle · HMMWV · GAZ-3937 Vodnik · FAV Buggy · NJ 2046 · ATV (Special Forces) · Technical (Special Forces) · AIL Raider (Special Forces) |group4 = Anti-Aircraft Vehicles |list4 = M6 Linebacker · 2K22 Tunguska · Type 95 SPAAA |group5 = Civilian Vehicles |list5 = Trailer Truck (Armored Fury) · Muscle Car (Armored Fury) · Civilian Car (Special Forces) · Forklift (Special Forces) |group6 = Helicopters |list6 = AH-1Z Viper · MH-60S Knight Hawk · Mi-28 Havoc · Mi-17 Hip · WZ-10 · Z-8 · Mi-24 Hind (Special Forces) · AH-64 Apache (Special Forces) · Eurocopter Tiger (Euro Force) · OH-6 Little Bird (Armored Fury) · Eurocopter EC635 (Armored Fury) · WZ-11 (Armored Fury) |group7 = Fixed-Wing Aircraft |list7 = F-18 Hornet · F-35B Lighting II · F-15E Strike Eagle · MiG-29 Fulcrum · Su-34 Fullback · J-10 · Su-30 Flanker-C · Eurofighter Typhoon (Euro Force) · A-10 Thunderbolt (Armored Fury) · Su-25 Frogfoot (Armored Fury) · Q-5 Fantan (Armored Fury) |group8 = Naval Craft |list8 = Rigid Inflatable Boat · USS Essex (LHD-2) · Jet Ski (Special Forces) |group9 = Emplacements |list9 =BGM-71 TOW · HJ-8 · FIM-92 Stinger · IGLA · Phalanx CIWS |group10 = Cut Vehicles |list10 = LCAC · Wheelbarrow · Lynx (Euro Force) · VBL (Euro Force) · Harrier (Armored Fury) }}
