The Alien Tiger – Mi-35 of Czech Air Force


Short film about the Alien Tiger, special painted Mil Mi-35 Hind helicopter from the Czech Air Force painted on the occasion of NATO Tiger Meet international exercise. Flown by the 221st LtBVr (Attack Helicopter Squadron), the late model Hind was already the stuff of nightmares before it received its special tiger stripe and Xenomorph ovipositor scheme in an ode to Swiss artist H. R. Giger, which took over 200 hours to apply. As noted by the Czech military, who operate 17 of these Soviet-bloc attack helicopters, the version in service with the 221st carry UPK-23-250 two-barrel cannon in the chin and pods for rockets, 30mm automatic grenade launchers, four-barrel 9-A-624 12.7mm or four-barrel 7.62 mm 9-A-622 machine guns under the wings.
