    And what could the Australians repair there or the N. Zealanders? After all, they don’t have Mi.

      The absence of direct contracts with specific agents does not mean a ban on sales through third parties

    Mi 8 is the most popular pinwheel in the world. Service centers should have a wagon and a small trolley

      It is also in demand because the engines, the main gearbox and the set of blades change in a clean field without a crane by the power of the TEC part (one and a half excavator smile A small thing like KAU doesn't count at all. And the resource to CWR (overhaul cap) is 12 years (4500 h). So a carriage and a small cart are useless, this is not a Lexus with a blonde at the wheel.
      Real hokhma-on taxiing hit the hole, the front desk in the belly "cleaned". Our aces lifted the car from this position !!! and carefully planted on a pile of old tires. By morning the leg was "healed".

    It is very strange that such centers are only now opening. In essence, such a center should not be in the region in one place with an aviation center and a spare parts depot. The Vietnamese authorities, I think, would not mind if at least a demonstration center for military equipment and armaments is arranged, so to speak, so to speak, to the buyer but this is already a marketing strategy.

    If Russia is the legal successor of the USSR, then it is simply obliged to have a base in VIETNAM.
