      Maybe there is, but they are silent about it. The Mi-8 is a good helicopter, but the fact that it has been in service for half a century is not scary. "Old" doesn't mean "bad." good

        According to the report of the Flight International Analytical Center (dedicated to the prospects for the development of the air forces of the world - approx. TASS), as of the end of 2015, there are 2 Mi-555/8 family helicopters in the world. They make up 13% of the world fleet of helicopter technology.
        Domestic rotorcraft in popularity are slightly inferior only to S-70 / SH-60 / UH-60 helicopters manufactured by the American company Sikorsky Aircraft, of which there are 3 units in the world (18%).
        More than 130 modifications of the Mi-8 have been developed, including significantly upgraded versions - Mi-8MT, Mi-17, Mi-171 - for civilian and military operators. good
