    We have a huge need for such a helicopter! As much as possible for various needs, both troops and civilian.

      I think that Ansats are really needed for a citizen, but I wouldn’t rush into the troops, all the same, the Canadian engines are on them, I don’t know why Kazan decided so, there are Russian options. And in combat conditions it is not known how foreign technology will behave ..

    Is it that we began to build hangars for helicopters or is this a temporary storage place ?? Anyone in the subject?
      SASCHAmIXEEW 25 March 2013 13: 39
      I think these are collapsible mobile hangars. Judging by what they are covered ..

      Judging by the Canadian wiki - PW-207K (Pratt & Whitney)
      By the way, they are making engines for US military aviation

    This is how one should hate Ukraine, in order to put American engines on helicopters for the Air Force in a fit of pride. But what about the arguments about the enemies and the supply of spare parts.
