The Mi-17 Transport (China) and Mi-17 Transport (North Korea) are similar, if not the same, in performance. Both are medium lift transport helicopters used to transport light and medium weight vehicles, and a small group of infantry. The Chinese use this helicopter to drop vehicles and supplies to the player during some of their contracts.
The Mi-17 Transport is slow and is lumbering, but has some resistance to damage. The helicopter has no weapons and is very vulnerable to anti-air weapons.
It can be found patrolling Dandong near the Chinese base. It is possible to acquire either by hijacking (if reputation with the Chinese is low enough) or sniping the pilot and hoping the helicopter survives the landing.
The Mi-17 Transport is based on the Soviet Mil Mi-17 "Hip" introduced in 1977.
- The image in the game manual depicts rocket pods attached to the side of the helicopter, however in-game no such weapons are found on the helicopter.
