Russian combat helicopters have crossed the border of Ukraine and executed some mission in the Crimea. We can count a dozen of Mi-24 in the video, which is a lot of firepower. Also, each Mi-24 can fit up to 8 soldiers, so in this case we could assume that each could carry at least 4 heavily armed soldiers and their gear, for a total of 48 combatants. But since there is no shortage of local manpower, maybe they were flying as fire support for another unit, probably those who seized the airports today.
Or maybe i am wrong and those helis are not Mi-24, but Mi-28 havocs far more dangerous than MI 24s.
