According to this Wookieepedia article about the LAAT (Low Altitude Assault Transport, a.k.a the Republic Gunship), the answer is yes.
"The Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry (LAAT/i), often referred
to as the Republic attack gunship or Republic Gunship, was a
specialized gunship designed for aerial-based support and infantry
"The LAAT was inspired by real-world helicopter gunships, notably the
Soviet (now Russian) Mil Mi-24 Hind helicopter gunship."
Quote from the "Behind the Scenes" section of this other Wookieepedia article:
"The design for the LAAT is largely based on that of the
Soviet/Russian Mi-24 Hind helicopter gunship. The real-world gunship
also fulfills the dual role of ground attack and troop transport."
