      great photo and good article wink
      that the Kazan plant and Ulan Ude, these two plants that were loaded in Yeltsin’s times
      the demand for the mi-17 family is huge, so these two plants continue to develop

      Kazantsev has a huge contract for the supply of india 80 mi-17v5 with a glass cabin — unfortunately, it’s easier to go to our own army with arrow indicators (truth is there is a problem with the price of products for the air force)

      recently successfully delivered helicopters to Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Sudan, Poland, etc.

      success and further development wink

      I agree, it is nice that the plant does not stand idle, but produces equipment (and excellent equipment). And when you are convinced of it yourself - it’s doubly pleasant. Many thanks to those who produce new aircraft for our army. Keep it up! soldier

    It's a shame that such magnificent helicopters are made on imported machines ...

      it’s better to do something on imported machines. Why not do anything and wait for our analogues to appear.

    Mmmmhh crying
    IDE in workshops and culture - assembly technology to put it mildly - leave much to be desired. There are enough videos of how they work in other places on the Internet. Even the "paddling pools" assemble their trains more technologically. crying
    although for the article - MERSY. good
