      The Mi-8 was always well sold out and its production was not so much affected by perestroika compared to the same MiG or Sukhim, which switched to a unit assembly or IL and Tu which cannot transfer to a unit assembly anymore.

    Here it is, the state loan program in action. If it goes on like this, we will be able to at least partially restore the destroyed aviation industry.

      The main thing is that the loan will be returned to us, and we, in order that “fraternally” they would not write it off, for the inability to conduct a network struggle for the minds in keeping the friendly regime. hi

    Manufacturer's reference: “Mi-171Sh is a military transport helicopter developed on the basis of the Mi-171 helicopter (Mi-8AMT).
    They also developed the technique! So many years, it’s been in service. Modernization by modernization, but the basis is MI-8.
