    LOL! I took it off because it's just opinion anyway. I just like the darker colors like the Strike Eagles.

    I googled and found some good pictures of the Ka-226 possiblities.





















    Another few interesting/nice ones that I can't embed because of copyright:

    ^ Great post Hyde, didn't realize the Ka-226 was such a versatile little bird.


    Iraq received their first three Mi-28NEs:



    Hope they make good use of them.

    I think we are ten years now from the Beslan terrorist attack.

    May the victims rest in peace.

    I thought of starting a thread but instead I pay my respects here

    I already posted the report with exterior pictures of SBM vehicle some time ago, this summer I had a chance to take detailed pics inside the vehicle.
    Walkaround of special armored vehicle SBM VPK-233136 used by OSN Saturn special unit.

    Seems a bit odd, camouflaging the interior of a vehicle but not the exterior.

    10 years... wow. RIP to the victims and to the men of Alfa and Vympel who sacrificed themselves during the operation.

    Here's a large collection of photos from the storming of the school for any who might be interested:

    That's just the spall liner it comes with. Looks hideous if you ask me, like a military surplus store used the Tigr as a barf bucket.

    That interior camo canvas has been ugly since the day I first saw it. I wonder why they don't change it to a neutral color. This looks nauseating and makes it very dark inside. But that's really the least important of questionable design decisions they have made at that fine vehicle to make it worse than it is.

    New Mi-8AMTSh (Mi-171Sh in export) delivered to the Russian Air Force. New TA-14 APU (Russian made, replacing the old Ukrainian made APU), stronger transmission, larger armor area, clamshell doors instead of ramp, and maybe some other changes that I don't see.
