Mil Mi-2 Hoplite

in North Korean Air Force service

History

No less than 108 of this light helicopter were acquired by North Korea. Nothing is known of the use of the Mi-2s, but it may be presumed that liaison, light transport and agent insertion were among the tasks. The Mi-2 reportedly remains in large-scale use. However, as is the case with other piston-engined aircraft and helicopters, they may have been withdrawn from use due to the lack of Avgas.
