    Kazakhstan is engaged in strange games ... it seems to be an ally for the EAEK and other organizations ... but sometimes it purchases weapons (and these are the standards) from our probable opponents ... interestingly this is shown by an independent course ... or this is a manifestation of some hostility towards Russia ...
    And MI-35M is of course a powerful technique and in the right hands is very dangerous in battle ...

      "... it is interesting that this is how they demonstrate an independent course ... or is it a manifestation of some kind of hostility towards Russia ..." - this demonstrates the southern mentality, both ours and yours. And in return, there are some preferences.

      What weapons are we talking about, silberwolf88?
      Transport carrier S-295 (light) - its counterpart is not produced in the CIS (threw An Kiev from). Assembly of Eurocopters or armored personnel carriers of the South Africa - they agreed to assemble the Mi-8 at a 405 factory (but it’s still there), analogues of the South African armored personnel carriers are not mass-produced. Chinese UAVs - analogues are not mass-produced in the CIS. hi

        Kasym, this is all clear. But still, the general trend for specific principalities will not go anywhere. And in principle, it’s not so difficult to understand why.

      The RF itself is to blame. The Russian Federation has all the levers for resolving issues with the CIS countries (more or less) .....

      We agreed only last year to assemble the EU-145 for the Air Force, now there are 8 of them. in the army. But for combat he is weak. 3,5 t. Maximum take-off weight.
      But basically they collect light helicopters for the Ministry of Emergencies, medicine, etc. hi
