      This is not a banal pinwheel like mi-8/17, but rather a piece of equipment for certain tasks. And the article states that this is the third helicopter in 2017:

    Interestingly, the Kumu then have those “zero” helicopters that pass over my house almost every day. I say so, because we have the track of the test "triangle". Once such a whopper hung right over the house for half an hour. So someone from the KP of our division then said that he had a communication failure and in such cases they are forbidden to fly on.

    Again from the category of "Russia - the birthplace of elephants."
    Well, yes, the largest in the world ... Cool ... I do not argue. You can be proud.
    Do not exaggerate. Everything is relative.
    "Piece" - this is when, any, an elite car (for example, Rolls-Royce) is assembled by hand and put a personal brand of quality.
    And this is just a heavy transport SERIAL helicopter. For banal transport tasks.
    And compare the pace of supply of such equipment with the United States or China.

      And would it be not the third, but the thirtieth or three hundredth in a year, would a squeal and a squeak about a shortage of money for pensioners and medicine with education rise at once?
