IAF Mi-24/35 in United Nations Mission in Congo

Post by Indian Bison on Tue Apr 10, 2012 1:54 pm

The United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or MONUSCO (previously known as United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo or MONUC, French: Mission de l'Organisation des Nations Unies en République démocratique du Congo), is a United Nations peacekeeping force in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) which was established by the United Nations Security Council in resolutions 1279 (1999) and 1291 (2000) of the United Nations Security Council to monitor the peace process of the Second Congo War, though much of its focus subsequently turned to the Ituri conflict, the Kivu conflict and the Dongo conflict.

The IAF had deployed around 20 Mi-17s and over 10 Mi-35 helicopters ( don't think it was at once, but in batches)in the UN operations which were providing close air support to the ground troops operating in the two trouble torn countries. The last 4 Mi-24/35 were withdrawn last year after the need felt to get them back to India. This need was felt, when Govt was considering if it needed to use Armed Forces in the Naxal Conflict.
