History Recreated: IAF Mi-17 Attack on Tololing Hill, May 1999
On May 26-28, fourteen years ago, Mi-17 Helicopter units of the Indian Air Force, assaulted the enemy on the mountainous heights of the Kargil sector, namely at Tiger Hill complex and Tololing Ridge. This reconstructed animated movie by the superbly talented Anurag Rana reconstructs the entire attack, pays homage to all air warriors, the men and their machines, of 152 HU – “The Mighty Armour” and 129 HU – “The Nubra Warriors”, who, very well understanding the odds against them, went in to fulfill their missions. Especially dedicated to the crew of Nubra-3, which became martyrs on this very day, 14 years ago, on 28th May 1999.
Special thanks to Anurag for allowing Livefist to host this amazing piece of work.
