The Mi-24P is similar to the Mi-24V but differs in cannon armament. Whereas the Mi-24V is armed with a 12.7mm Yak-B minigun in a nose turret the Mi-24P has a twin barrel 30mm GSh-30K autocannon alongside the cockpit. The GSh-30K is much more powerful but not as simple to aim as the Yak-B. The P in the designation stands for "Pushka", which is Russian for cannon. Mi-24P Hind-F: The original Soviet army version of the Hind-F. Mi-35P Hind-F: The export version of the Hind-F.
The Fennek is a reconnaissance vehicle of Dutch origin. The Fennek was developed as a private venture by SP Aerospace in the early 1990's. In the late 1990's it turned into a joint Dutch/German program. The German firm KMW continued the development and is currently marketing the Fennek 2.
The Type-054A is a modern class of frigates of Chinese origin. These multipurpose frigates are a further development of the Type-054 class. The same hull is used, but weapons and sensors are significantly improved. The Type-054A is the most numerous class of surface combattant in the Chinese navy. Although 20 were planned at first, this number was increased to 30.
The T-62 is a main battle tank of Soviet origin. It was developed in the late 1950's as a follow on to the succesful T-55. The T-62 was produced in large quantities in the 1960's and played an important role in the Cold War. In several areas the T-62 is an improvement over the T-55. However, the slight increase in performance does not justify the production costs that are twice that of the T-55. The introduction of newer tanks made the T-62 quickly obsolete as the primary Soviet tank, a role which would be fulfilled by the later T-72.
