    When you read such messages every day, you begin to rejoice in your soul that Russia is still alive, in spite of home-grown figures who sell their homeland and country for thirty Washington pieces of silver.

      For thirty "pieces of silver" this is the payment for the worst slave in other, Judea, and this payment was received by Judas for the sale of Jesus. Fashington is not a Sanhedrin in Jerusalem, and they are selling not God, and not their homeland, but their conscience. Here another comparison is needed, since Judas had a conscience, for he himself hanged himself on an aspen, and these will not hang ...

      I have been amazed by this machine for many years: it has been in service since 1967, and how much is yet to come ... Probably, there are no more such helicopters to work and fight in such quantity all over the world.

      The news is good, but where are the Ka-52 and Mi-28? This is what should be the backbone of attack helicopter aviation. And we read about any modernization there whose supply there is and the supply of general-purpose helicopters ...

        The transport component is no less important. Quickly transfer the fighters, pick up the wounded, deliver the ammunition and dry assault, supply. The car is sometimes irreplaceable.
        Well, it performs all the shock functions. ATGM, AP, NURS, AB - all that combat. hi

    I totally agree, it’s very, very nice for our Armed Forces, however, not everything is as it is, I live in a military garrison where the long-range truck, TU-142, TU-95, out of the total number of cars, are based, only THREE flies !! !!! Yes, they are outdated, but they fly, and they terrify other countries. You can at least arrange the supply of spare parts! And restore the machine. What is the use of that helicopter if there are no FAR!

      To understand the significance of the Tu-95, one must give oneself an account that the flight of such an aircraft is similar to the launch of a nuclear submarine on a campaign. When the British gave us the Royal Soverin in 1943, it never went to sea during the war years. To take it out to sea, it was necessary to drive a train with fuel to Arkhangelsk, and everything else ... Tu-95 does not fly just to show off in the air, most often its flights are associated with the movement of American fleets in the ocean, or the political situation when it is necessary to show "fist" to partners. Or do you want to ruin the country with such flights?

    and the concept of "link" has a quantitative expression? or a link is called when more than one turntable?
    By the way, for one thing I would like to know the concept of "convoy of cars")) how many cars are called a column?

      In the Russian Air Force, usually the link is 3 aircraft, I’m afraid it’s not a pilot who’s mistaken ... A convoy of cars is a temporary education for a specific task. As the commander plans it will be so. In general, these are two or more vehicles.

        The link is four. The column is more than 1, something like that.

        The link is the primary division in the light aviation of the USSR and the Russian Federation, aircraft up to 43 tons, air forces (fleet) (3-4 units, mainly three aircraft).
        An organized transport column is a group of three or more mechanical vehicles that follow directly in the same lane with the headlights constantly on, accompanied by the head vehicle with special color schemes applied to the outer surfaces and the blue and red flashing lights turned on .

        it was the same until the 1942 year, but later, before the era of jet aircraft, the link began to consist of two twin or 4 aircraft.

      During the hostilities in Vietnam, US citizens raised their voices in protest that the US Air Force made too many sorties, not commensurate with the objectives. Next year Pintgon provided a report that the number of sorties was "made by air links four times less" than before. But ... as it turned out later, the number of sorties remained the same as before. Column = movement of people or equipment with the advancement in front of the vanguard and behind the column of the rearguard, capable of using weapons to protect vehicles or people. But the quantity ... there is no limit, but then armored vehicles could also be in the middle of the column.

      More than one unit, this is a convoy with a circular guard, as well as a convoy can be several lines of ships under protection.

    With weapons, these little birds do not have to fly. Within a radius of 5 km, take-off and landing are enough for an adversary. And work horses are always needed

    "Eight" is an extremely successful car, tenacious. I read a book about Afghan, so the pilot told a story there - "The gorge, it gets dark, the paratroopers are pressed by the spirits; one eight is working in the mountains, the second pulls out ALL (!), Including two hundred, and, as he writes, the machine forgave us, not even a cartridge was left , everything and everyone was pulled out. The overload was twice. " So that . And then Sikorski-Sikorski ... Except for heifers to fly on that Sikorski. Although our man was. Do these have at least something of their own?

    “Is the ability to take off and land at altitudes up to 4 thousand meters above sea level and to fly at altitudes up to 6 thousand meters”

    That's where the main thing.
    For Mi-8: Practical ceiling - 5000 m.
