The Mil Mi-17 (NATO code "Hip") and its variants are the transport horses of countries supplied by the Russian Federation and post-Soviet states, and was the standard helicopter of the Chernarussian Defence Forces before the outbreak. The variant that was in game is painted with Russian military markings.
The Mi-17 is extremely well armoured, and can survive more shots than any other vehicle in DayZ. Unless hit in the engine-rotor-assembly, the Mi-17 can sustain almost any amount of small arms fire, though it can be easily shot down using the Offroad Technical's DShK 12.7mm machinegun.
The Mi-17 is also the only helicopter that is armed with anti lock-on measures, as it is equipped with 120 rounds of chaff. The use of these is purely to distract enemies, as DayZ lack heat seeking ground-to-air rocket launchers.
The Mi-17 was introduced in the 22.214.171.124 DayZ patch. It was removed in the 1.8.7 Patch, likely because it was so difficult to shoot down.
The Mi-17's PKT machineguns can be reloaded with PKM Belts if needed.
The Mi-17 was removed from the game in the 1.8.8 patch. However, it still spawns on many servers.
