History

150a Section 1958 rok. Mil Mi-4 Kaśka.

The Mil Mi-4 (NATO name "Hound") was a Soviet transport helicopter that served in both military and civilian roles. The Mi-4 was designed in response to the American Sikorsky H-19 Chickasaw and the deployment of U.S. helicopters during the Korean War. While the Mi-4 superficially resembles the H-19 Chickasaw, it is a larger helicopter and is able to lift more weight. The first model entered service in 1952. The helicopter was first displayed to the outside world in 1952 at the Soviet Aviation Day in Tushino.
