      oh well ... there is a "raptor" isho, and there is a "patriot" (ugh ... there is also an UAZ) well ... the "stinger" is not far away ... the imagination is limited ... (by the way, how did you get the Abrams?) recourse

    "" Military pilots have successfully completed retraining to fly the latest Arctic helicopter at the certified aviation training center of the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant "...

    Here, slowly and personnel of the polar aviation will be restored ...

    PS Sometimes it’s very annoying that a country has to restore bit by bit the collapse of the USSR ... But it’s better that way than nothing ...

    Having raised, they frighten with such headlines. And then I racked my brains: "Why in the Arctic, in the tundra, such armored vehicles? Really the adversary will attack there in crowds of infantry?" And then there is cho? Arctic helicopters. A helicopter is a necessary thing there.

    The helicopter is very necessary for the Arctic troops, in the warmth it is always more comfortable to work.

    Remembering the times of the USSR, I got used to the fact that equipment was delivered to the troops in huge quantities, such frankly scarce figures that cause aching pain from the fact that we don’t even know if it is a lot or a little and what urgent needs should be equipment equipment reached 100 percent. Let's hope this is just the beginning!

    Today, it was reported on the news that Airbus has patented a device that allows helicopters to reach speeds of up to 470km / h. I wonder what kind of thing, as far as I remember, 360, Mi24.

    The good news is that such a technique is needed in the Arctic, especially in Tiksi, since the aircraft deployed there often turn out to be inoperative due to severe weather conditions. Even in the month of May there are sharp changes in temperature and for 2 snowstorms will sweep up the 2nd floor of a house standing on stilts.
