Today, a photo surfaced online showing a Central African Republic Mi-24 helicopter at Russia's Hmeimim airbase in Syria. It seems that the CAR Mi-24 helicopter was probably transported to Syria for repairs before being flown back.
According to Zoka news, "A Central African Republic Mi-24 was spotted at Russia's Hemeimim airbase in Syria. The Central African Republic's Mi-24 helicopter was returned to the country, after repairs in Syria."
