Military unit aviation in the Smolensk region received a multi-purpose link Mi-8MTV-5, reports TASS message of the representative of ZVO Oleg Kochetkov.




“The new combat vehicles entered service with the military unit as part of the scheduled replacement of the Mi-8 helicopters of the early series, which had reached the deadlines for operation,” the officer said.

“Mi-8MTV-5 is designed for the carriage of goods and equipment weighing up to four tons. In a combat version, this helicopter can support ground troops and landing forces with fire ”, - explained Kochetkov.

    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 the other, Judea, and this payment was received by Judas for selling Jesus. Fushington is not the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem, and they are selling not God, nor Homeland, but their conscience. Here another comparison is necessary, since Judas had a conscience, for he 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

    Well, of course, but it will not be enough. Mi-8 Syrians drive away.

    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 Yes, they are outdated, but they fly, and they terrify other countries.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 be aware that the flight of such an aircraft is similar to a nuclear submarine going on a hike. When the British handed us the Royal Sovereign in 1943, during the war years he never went to sea even once. To take him out to sea it was necessary to drive a train with fuel to Arkhangelsk, and all the rest ... Tu -95 do not fly just to show off in the air, most often its flights are related to 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?

    but does the concept of "link" have a quantitative expression? or call a link when more than one turntable?
    By the way, for one I would like to know the concept of a "convoy of cars")) how many cars are called a convoy?

      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 Pintthe run provided a report that the sorties were “four times less by air links” than before. But ... as it turned out later, the number of sorties remained the same as before. Column = movement of people or equipment with advancement of the rear guard column in front of the vanguard and behind the column, capable of using weapons to protect vehicles or people. But the number ... there is no limit, but then in the middle of the column could also be armored vehicles.

      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" - an extremely successful machine, tenacious. I read a book about Afghanistan, so the pilot told the story there: "The gorge, it gets dark, the spirits were pressed down; one eight works in the mountains, the second pulls out ALL (!), Including two hundred, and, as he writes, the car forgave us, they didn’t even leave a cartridge "They pulled everyone and everyone. Overload was two times." So that . And then Sikorski-Sikorski ... Unless fly on the heifers 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.
