Iraqi Army Special Ops Force Recruitment video feat. Mi-25 Gunship helicopters

Jan 07 2014 - 4 Comments

Here’s an interesting recruitment video for the Iraqi Army SOF (Special Operation Force).

Among the other things, it shows some Mi-25 Hind attack helicopters and some Mi-8/17 Hip choppers used to transport Special Teams.

According to some recent news reports, Iraq expects to receive around 40 Mi-35 and Mi-28NE attack helicopters from Russia (the first 13 Russian“Night Hunter” helicopters have already arrived in Iraq), mainly for border patrol and antiterrorist operations.

Furthermore, under the framework of a deal which includes 48 Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile gun systems, Russia would also supply Iraq with Ka-52 single-seat attack helicopters.

    I was definitely not expecting them to use music from US recruiting videos.

      Same thought. Using US supplied vehicles and rifles/kit and with the “Army Strong” soundtrack in the background, I was getting US Army deja vu. Still, cool to see, (if for flash and pomp only?) the Iraq SOF getting out there with a well done video.
