"While you were out having fun, I found an old helicopter that I was able to get working. I've got it all packed up and ready to go. Never a dull moment, huh?"
Alyx Vance[src][listen]

The Mil Mi-8 is a helicopter seen parked in a hangar at White Forest, at the very end of Half-Life 2: Episode Two.

[edit] Overview

Found and prepared by Alyx Vance, it was to be used by her and Gordon Freeman to reach Judith Mossman and the Borealis right after the rocket launch. Before the duo left, Advisors attacked them and killed Eli Vance, delaying the departure.

This helicopter appears to be a Russian Mil Mi-8 helicopter that seems to have been operated by the Vietnamese People's Air Force, given its roundel.

[edit] Behind the scenes

Concept art for Episode Three suggests that Gordon and Alyx will still use the helicopter to go looking for Mossman, and crash in Arctic regions.

[edit] Trivia

  • The early Combine Hunter-Chopper was also based on a Russian helicopter, the Ka-27.
  • This specific helicopter appears to be a variant of the Mi-8 that is called the Mi-8M in Russia (and the Mi-17 elsewhere), based on the fact that unlike the standard Mi-8, which has its tail rotor on the starboard (right) side, this helicopter has its tail rotor on the port (left) side.
