Mil Mi-8 Hip

in North Korean Air Force service

History

Two Mi-8Ts were noted in a propaganda film broadcast in late 1979. Reportedly, 15 Mi-8’s have been supplied to North Korea, most likely no later than 1979. On October 7, 1998, five Mi-8Ts were impounded by Khasan border guards. The helicopters, formerly the property of the Russian Far Eastern Military District, were fitted with IFF systems, with all weapon control systems in place. During the summer of 1998, the Mi-8s were acquired by the Khabarovsk-based company Arden for 60 to 100 000 Roubles each during an official auction on behalf of North Korea. Interestingly, World Air Forces Directory 2004/05 states no less than 80 Mi-8s in service.

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 However, as is the case with other piston-engined aircraft and helicopters, they may have been withdrawn from use due to the lack of Avgas.
