    Now there is little left to do, to form an Airmobile Brigade and to replace the Mi-8,17 with the Ka-60 Kasatka.

      The "Killer Whale" will not pull out all that the "eighth" car pulls on itself ...

        marshes 2 May 2012 14: 21
        The eight will be the transport, the Kasatka will be the transport and landing. In some operations MI-8 is redundant.

          Chicot 1 2 May 2012 22: 03
          For "some operations" it is more likely not the Ka-60, or even the Mi-8, but a CH-53E class vehicle with a long range and the ability to refuel in the air ... wink
          Yes, and "Killer Whale", whatever you may say, is essentially our replica to the American "Black Hawk". The Kamov car is certainly good, but with the appearance of the latest version of the Mi-8/17, namely the Mi-8AMShT, the urgent need for it essentially disappears. In addition, I cannot imagine the task that the GXNUMX could not cope with. And the experience of Afghanistan and Chechnya, as well as other armed conflicts, is a vivid confirmation of this ...

    Dear forum users!

    We urgently need a used georadar or equipment for seismic exploration.
    For the study of later voids, and cave formations. It is desirable with the possibility of analysis at a depth of 50 meters - this is important!
    We will purchase georadar equipment for cash, or we will rent it (with all necessary documents drawn up).

    Possible budget - up to 200 thousand rubles.

    If you have any suggestions and options, write to the mail:
    [email protected]

    Consider all the offers!
    Of course, first of all - the most budgetary options are accepted.

    Thank you.
