AMK AVANTGARDE 88010 1:48 MI-17 HIP HELICOPTER

This stunning example of the Mil Mi-17 comes with over 240 detailed plastic parts and includes decals and etch parts.

The original Mi-8 was phenomenally successful. However it had problems flying in mountainous terrain due to lack of engine power. It was fitted with 1 400-shp engines. An improved version was fitted with better Klimov TV3-117MT engines, developing 1,874shp each, to produce the Mi-17. As a result the Mi-17 has better high altitude and overall performance. It was an important feature for some of its export operators, such as India. New engines dramatically reduced fuel consumption. Furthermore the Mi-17 it can limp back home with one of the engines destroyer or damaged. In the event of failure another engine automatically increases its power to 2,195shp. This allows to continue the flight.

The major visible difference of the Mi-17 is a tail rotor. On the Mi-17 it was repositioned and is located on the left side, while the original Mi-8 a tail rotor is on the right side. The Mi-17 also has several other minor improvements, such as new rotor hub made of titanium alloy, different electric grid, and so on.
