Cameroon's MI-24 to combat Boko Haram

In case you missed out on the National Day Parade on May 20, 2016 here is a glimpse of what went down. Ahead of the military parade I presented the newest acquisition of the Rapid Intervention Battalion, the MI-24 Russian-built attack helicopter.
The robust aircraft is a central piece in the fight Cameroon is waging against the Islamic terrorist sect Boko Harm.

The MI-24 according to Wikipedia is a large helicopter gunship, attack helicopter with low troop capacity transport that can carry eight passengers. The aircraft is produced by the Moscow Military Helicopter Plant, and has been in operation since 1972. It is operated by the Soviet Airforce and 30 other nations.
