Right you are Duane. It's an MI-24.

Remember all the flash recognition cards in the Army lol. Silhouettes, that double stacked cockpit sticks in the mind even after 17 years. That and how to assemble and disassemble and perform function checks M-16's, M-60's, and SAW's that I will probably never see again. I was telling my son(who is caught up in Army stuff)how to perform sports on an M-16 and I still remembered a lot of my common tasks. Slap, pull, observe, release, tap, squeeze. I bored him pretty quick but got caught up myself lol. Setting Claymores, using Antropene and gas masks. Memory lane.

Yeah, playing army is fun!
Scary to think that you are our allies, that aircraft could easily be an A129.
After all, you yanks did invent the term "friendly fire".
There's an Italian A129 shown at the bottom of this cool website

Sorry my gay friend but the Agusta A129 Mangusta was not active while I was active in the Army. Besides it's Italian, who cares JK.

I concur. That's not an A129 in this pic.

This is.

Looks like a warmed over US Army Cobra gunship.

Besides, Woberto...just what is it with this problem you have with us Yanks? We're just trying to be cool here and discuss the pic.

Sorry 90210 but I couldn't resist trying to get a rise out of you.
I'm not sure why the term yanks is so common in Australia but I assure you it is not offensive.
The same way we call English pohms and New Zealanders kiwis.

No worries, I'm not offended since the term has no real derogatory conotation. It comes from the US Civil war, when Union soldiers were called "Yankees" by their Confederate counterparts.

Now some of my Brit friends might be put off by the acronym "POHM" or "POMMY" since it implies that our cousins across the pond are "Prisoners Of Her Majesty" (which may be true to some extent) and it harkens back to times when Australia was a penal colony.

One of my motorcycle mates is a New Zealander, and we affectionately refer to him as "Kiwi" which he likes and and isn't put off by it in the least.
