      I agree with you that the volume is pleasing and the Soviet past should be noted:

        why rejoice? contracts concluded, loot paid? I don’t understand such “news” at all - someone looked somewhere - all over, overcome, as neighbors say. and then begins - "the Indian side has not yet agreed, thinks" - the Indians will think for five more years, if at all
        Too often, we scream loudly about successes without even concluding framework agreements, and then look like a laughing stock, only South / Turkish flows are worth it ... Work is necessary, not in the language of revenge

      So thanks to us these relations exist (BRICS), and they are both interested in cooperating with us, the main thing is to direct positive emotions with all mutual claims to connect them economically and politically with us.

    Everything is fine. The Indian arms market should never be let go. And what’s already there: without undue modesty, I’ll say that our Mi is one of the best in the world. No wonder even the Americans bought them (or rented) to work in Afghanistan. Simple, reliable, unpretentious car. What you need for war.

      Strange: the iconostasis hangs entirely on the left chest, on the right there is only a badge. But the shirt does not pull down at all. Is it not a medal made of aluminum foil?

    In about five years, at least the Indians will ripen to conclude a contract for the purchase of this helicopter, and the contact itself will be agreed and signed for about ten years.

    In fact, the Mi-38 has only one serious competitor (in its class) - the French Caracal - and so it’s almost twice as expensive !!
