    ^^ They look like sharks..!
    As I know, one of nicknames for Hokum (Ka-50) was (flying) Shark - Akula. But I agree, that shark nickname very suite for Ka-52, specially for naval Ka-52K on Mistrals as Hellduck suite to Su-34.

    Yeah, A-50U in grey paint scheme looks really bad, same as that grey doesn't fit the Mickey Mouse (Mi-28N)...
    To those who like it, you have a really bad, west spoiled, taste
    Lol. Wouldn't that make you a fan of EAST then? So, EAST spoiled, taste?

    I think it looks nice. It went away from the Soviet era, and it's just a new beginning. In simple sense, just a refresh of the future work style.

    SMOTR: 2008 - Year of reforms launch for Russian Armed Forces.
    The episode was aired exactly 5 years ago - February 23rd, 2008. It might be interesting so see what have changed since then.

    Also it features a visit to family of fresh Lieutenants of Border Guards Forces, showing their everyday life and service on Russian-Ukrainian borders in early 2008.

    If it weren't for the EOTechs I would have thought this was video was from the early 90s.

    Crappy video cameras make anything look like it's from the 90s.

    Thanks for the great video Roman!

    My taste is not east spoiled, just in my oppinion, westish grey doesn't fit eastish aircrafts, I'm glad they are done with "new" serdiukov's grey paint scheme. So I'll have to wait till it wears off to be completely happy
