    And that * up to -60 degrees, did you set the temperature at the point of departure? Interest-how the oil in the engine and gearboxes is heated? And rubber products-temperature tolerances differ from just the Mi-8 by 5 degrees? If so that's really great

    This is good, otherwise the fleet of helicopters and airplanes has not been updated for a long time .... In 2015, 4 or 8 Su-30cm were ferried to us and probably from 10-12 Mi-8MTSh for exercises and that's all .... to the places of deployment. And this one is already on duty.
