    No clue if the sensor issues has been solved. As to TVC, it was certainly on during the infamous landing... So i would guess it was on during the flight too.

    Btw, confirmed; new Mi-8's are in the same camo as the new standard for Mi-28N/-35M and Ka-52. Bottom here:

    The new blue-grey camo is beautiful. Looks better than the old 90s, 00s and Soviet camo's. This one reminds me of the French and Greek one a bit, it looks less saturated and more "masking" than some bright blue camo. It's also not as messy, but has nice wide streaks of grey and light blue, and is matte. Looks really nice and not as cheap/amateurish as older blue camos. The Yak-130 is getting more handsome with every new camo, the first grey seemed great, the darker grey even better, and this one makes it look awesome.
    Too bad the Su-34 is using their darker neon blue camo, wish they would come in either this camo, Su-24M grey, or a unified ground camo (like the newer matte camos on the Su-25, they seem very nice, with sand and green colors), everything is better than dark blue and neon blue combined, that doesn't mask anything. Only the Navy can get away with darker blue, naturally.

    Here are the new Mi-8AMTSh in the new camo. They don't have the rear ramp for some reason. Were there structural problems with the ramp? And it looks like they have a new APU, and all of them have vibration dampers.

    Also nice to see that Ulan-Ude seems to have new, modern, Russian CNC machines:

    Why are the fuel tanks not allowed?

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

    This seems practical, like a flying van. Can be used by special forces and by ambulance services. Fits either 6 special forces, or a stretcher and EM-personnel. Can lift a solid ton inside the cabin.

    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
