Mi-8
Unit: Dostum's Militia
Serial: 0037

Dostum-Golboddin Militia Air Force Mi-8 as seen in the mid-1990s.

The DGMAF operated a large number of former DRAAF helicopters, including few old Mi-8s. This example wears a camouflage pattern in colours that were widespread also between late DRAAF, as well as most of DGMAF Mi-17s too. The serial, '0037' is slightly unusual, then three-digit serials were standard with the DRAAF. But, it appears that at least few other DGMAF and even some IEAAF Mi-17s wore similar, four digit serials (an IEAAF Mi-17 was shown on a parade in Kabul, in summer 2001, wearing a similar camouflage pattern and a four-digit serial, albeit applied in white). In 1992 the DGMAF helicopters were crucial for Massoud's success in conquering Kabul, when they were used to transport Jamiat-e-Islami troops into the city.

Mi-17MD
Unit: Hezb-e-Wahadat
Serial: 657

Hezb-e-Wahadat Mi-17MD, as seen in 1996 or 1997. Hezb-e-Wahadat is known to have been supported by Iran through the 1990s, and it is possible that this helicopter was also acquired via Tehran.

An Afghan mystery: the appearance of Mi-17MD with Hezb-e-Wahadat forces in the second half of the 1990s was definitely a surprise, then this version is in production only since 1995. However, a video presented on German TV showed also this example, serialled '657', as in operation with Hezb-e-Wahdat during the fighting with Taliban, in 1996 or 1997. Nothwitstanding the poor condition of most of the Afghan air forces at the time, it is known that different arms dealers - foremost Viktor Bout - were supplying heavy weapons to different fractions in the country. It is possible that this was also how this helicopter found its way in Afghanistan as well. Otherwise, it appears to have been originally painted green overall, with sploches of sand added at a later stage. Undersides are in light blue. There is some uncertainity about the exact colours, as the video was not showing the entire helicopter and colours were also not exactly clear, but 'dark green & sand' is certainly the best description, and the camouflage pattern on the fuselage as well as the serial and its position can be considered as'confirmed'. The easily recognizible Hezb-e-Wahdat roundel was applied on the usual place - on the rear of the fuselage - perhaps over the old insignia. Of interest is also the radome painted in light green: as a recognition aid?
