      The question is different - problems with the VR-29 gearbox. resolved or ..... how in April near Holmes they will look for the guilty? Or the "hunter" has remained "lame" ....
      ... illness of the structural unit - when operating for more than two hours, the gearbox overheats, which leads to the screw stopping.
      Also, due to non-calculated loads on various elements of the gearbox in the gears, metal was constantly cut off, and small metal chips fell on the oil filter nets. And this is a sentence for a helicopter and, possibly, a crew.

    Dear Solomon! With such knowledge, you should know how many various modifications come, both in the workshop and in the troops, and if that were the case, it probably already ... Everything works in the Torzhok Center. At night, tanks are afraid to drive around the city!

    I haven’t seen such a color ... (from the height of my sofa esssno) Even at first I was scared that I saw Apache. Green, camouflage, for Iraq hacks ... Maybe this is the basic color? Have you tested yet? I mean, in the ZVO "not this picture" was delivered.
