    If there are any experts explain why we need 300 pieces of these whatnots, or are we turning into an Emergencies Ministry?

      I can not imagine why in the Air Force even 1 such a dragonfly. Kuzhugetovich brought a little.

        why even one such dragonfly in the air force. Kuzhugetovich brought a little.

        For initial flight training. It is like a tricycle.

        It is difficult to explain the intention of the command, especially without reading the source documents, but earlier in the USSR at each airfield there was a flight or such
        An14 "Pchelka" or such
        L-200 Morava.
        And I know that they flew every day ... Apparently, even now, planes were needed for similar tasks.

      Kuzhugetovich decided to pollinate something a little. Running like a bee laughing

    Why I don’t know, but I know that there used to be such a thing as agricultural aviation.

    There is a noticeable difference in the volume of purchases. Kharkov University Kozheduba ordered only 10 such KhAZ-30s and 5 Odessa planes. But anyway, 300 for the Russian Defense Ministry - sort of like a bust.

      ROSTO (DOSAAF of Russia). ROSTO stands for Russian defense sports and technical organization. And here is her emblem.

    people yesterday found a service for checking fines in the traffic police by the state number of the car, otherwise I had a bit more fines than I thought. By the way, there they can be appealed, I was canceled two fines :). You can check your fines yourself, here is the site - http://redir.ec/mvdbaz

    In my opinion, everything is very simple, in the event of a war in the event of a loss of communication, responsible orders will be delivered by these aircraft.
