        Algeria, it seems, has long been oriented toward Russia. They don’t like America there. Although the Hercules fly.

      And recently, another good news was: At the Kazan Helicopter Plant (KVZ), which is part of the Russian Helicopters holding of the Rostec State Corporation, the fuselage of the first serial helicopter Mi-38 was manufactured, the press service of the Russian Helicopters holding said on Thursday.
      Currently, the Mi-38 is in the final stages of factory testing. 112 out of 180 planned flights completed. By the end of 2015, it is planned to complete certification work and get a certificate like the Mi-38 helicopter, the report said.

        The first developments and sketches of the future helicopter began to be carried out in the Kazan branch of Mil since 1983. In a word, unfinished. Unfortunately for me, who is interested in aviation, this is a morally obsolete helicopter. And also there was information that 1,1 billion rubles are required for the final tests.

          It is strange that Algeria is bypassing the West with its revolutions. Most likely because of the army. Algeria has both Su-30, and T-90, and S-300 with an armor. Now the turntables are modern. Apparently, the risks for the West are great - they can get it in the neck. hi

    Well, since about helicopters, I’ll add:

    In FEFU, a robotic complex has been created for the production of parts for new Ka-62 helicopters.

    At the Far Eastern Federal University, large-scale work is underway to create an intelligent robotic complex for processing polymer composite parts of the new Ka-62 civilian helicopters. This model of the Arsenyev Aviation Company "Progress" named after N.I. Sazykina is one of the most anticipated novelties of the Russian Helicopters holding in the world market. A unique system designed and assembled by scientists from the FEFU Engineering School is capable of hydroabrasive processing of more than 250 types of parts up to six meters in size from 22 types of composite materials. At the final stage, the complex will have to be finalized, and by the end of 2015, it will be put into pilot production directly at the plant.

    And the famous song come true smile

    Little children, for nothing in the world
    Do not go, children, children, to walk in Africa!
    In Africa, sharks, in Africa, gorillas,
    In Africa, large crocodiles.

    Our combat helicopters have very colorful nicknames in the world.

      Algeria has been 10 for years as a leading customer of Russian weapons. The Algerian People’s Army has the main Mi-35 combat helicopter pumped in South Africa. The remaining helicopters are also of Russian / Soviet release. Western go to the fleet (Cougars and Dolphins), as well as popovozov for generals.

      Which west? Algeria is an old partner who is second after India in terms of military-technical cooperation. Everything is already there, T-90, Tornadoes, BMP-3, C-300, Armor, Su-30, IL-78, Yak-130, Mi-8, Mi-26, Varshavyanka, Msta and a whole bunch more.

      That we just do not bully. Why the hell is it for us? The West is crazy in attack, does not want to sober up. Well it's in the blood. If you recall how the Western elites were formed in this world, much becomes clear and there is no reason to expect good.

    Good, and will be useful for advertising. You look and other customers catch up. And then Apache monopolistic dominates the market. Tiger and T-129 mongoose is not a full-fledged alternative.
