You mean the rockets then, not the missile.

Also I have had times when these Mi-24s have gone their way through AA infantry and APCs and actually managed to put an ATGM up an armoured command(fact remains that accuracy severely increases when standing right over a unit)
The problem with that is most enemies the Hind will meet in the air have much better AA weapons, and the Hind will get chewed up. Even a pair of Gazelle Cannons will tear shreds into the Hind, as will a single AH-1S. And sure, those missile can kind of hit stuff when at point-blank range, but then your Hind is in danger of getting gunned down by the MG's that are often on top of vehicles.
