        Yes, almost every day the military announces the arrival of new weapons here and there. Moreover, significant events are reported, but they do not write about routine, so everything is in order with us and you can sleep peacefully for now.

        Well, painting the body (like on a / m) implies the presence of a spray booth. And to apply camouflage at the airfield, it seems, will be problematic. I can’t even imagine, to be honest wink

    Multipurpose turntables, of course, are also needed, but you can’t do without attack aircraft, and Mi-8 is not suitable for this role ...
