    In Syria, our combat helicopters showed how this will actually happen .... to be honest, I was shocked by the endurance of our pilots doing it under the fire of heavy machine guns of militants.

      Definitely well done, the endurance is iron, even the heart stops beating when a large-caliber turntable is fired .... God forbid you have a good landing and return home unscathed.

    Не МИ8 конечно грозная хорошая машина, но название "Терминатор" это по моему перебор. Оно скорее подошло бы 24-кам, вот это действительно уничтожитель так уничтожитель!

      In general, I had my first thought - are they also flying? After all, you immediately think about BMPT;).

      It would probably fit 24 cam

      Ми-24 имеет вполне звучное и более подходящее имя - "Крокодил"... А "терминаторами" у нас что только не называли - и Су-37, и БМПТ, и упомянутый в статье Ми-8АМШТ (не путать с Ми-8МТВ-5, но об этом немного ниже)...

    The task of the Army in peacetime is to prepare itself daily and hourly for the defense of your Country! I am glad that our President understands this well and spares no effort and resources for this, despite the resistance of the liberal, economic bloc of the government!

    Новость как говорили точно хорошая,но братцы...Это же Ми-8! Ему как модели уже сто лет в обед! Что-то поновее надо в массы армейские скорее выделять да строить... Ну как бы при всём уважении Ми-8 уже старенький ему надо на покой. Давно уже Ка-52 надо ставить в армию, где наши "акулы"? Даже Ми-24 уже старенький -ветеран афганской войны а уж про Ми-8 это уж совсем...

      Dear, let it be known to you that even the Americans recognize the superiority of the Mi-8th, and complain that American industry will not be able to issue a device of this level for another 5 years. Last year’s interview with some Amer’s general. Therefore, for Afghanistan, aemra bought Mi-8.
      А бред по поводу Ка-50! Вы вообще понимаете разницу между Ми-8 и Ка-50. Для смеха расскажите куда в Ка-50 вы посадите 24 десантника в полном боевом снаряжении. И после высадки поддержите это-же десант "огнём". Да а по поводу старенького, вы в аббревиатуре разбираетесь!? Ми-8Т и Ми-8АМТШ, разница в буковках скрывает десятилетия усовершенствования замечательной машины, начиная от двигателя и заканчивая вооружением, даже фюзеляж поменял свой вид, если Вы внимательный человек.

    an enemy voice from all sides yells that Russia in Syria will finish the entire budget and does not notice when considerable funds are spent on maintaining combat readiness. They wish out what is wanted for the real. They previously thought that the Russians did not have money for decent weapons.

    Gunpowder must be kept dry. Good luck to our terminators.

    Turntables and pilots respect, of course, but the terminator is somehow associated with America, personally excuse my opinion.

    "Терминаторами" прозвали Ми-8АМШТ (производитель - Улан-Удэ), но на фото под заголовком Ми-8МТВ-5 (производитель - Казань). Визуальные различия между ними незначительные, но они есть...
    However, a closer look, dear author ...

    Bombing from transport helicopters? What is the point of such training? Is it Mi 8 that is sent to combat missile bombing missions? How many articles I read about helicopters, I just can’t understand:
    а) Для чего из ТРАНСПОРТНИКА делают боевого "терминатора"?
    b) Why such a wide range of attack helicopters: Mi35, Mi28n, Ka52. What can one and other helicopters cannot? What exactly do they complement each other so that they need to produce THREE separate machines?

    Хех, так врагу понятнее))) Это тоже самое, если б американцы назвали свой "апач" Добрыня Никитич, например.

    And what about the AB caliber on the Mi-8? Somebody knows?
