Re: India-Russia: News & Analysis

It seems hundreds of Russian “mercenaries” similiar to what they used in Ukraine were annihilated by Amreeki artillery and air strikes. They made the deadly mistake of attacking — with their Assad pals — a base housing US troops: http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/24/russians-us-strikes-syria/ The Russi...

I consider the blackhawk to be overall a inferior design to the Mi8/17 lineage. the back ramp is a major thing to wheel pallets and small trolleys in and out I agree with that statement too. But the chinis fly very large numbers of Mi-8/17 and also have the Z-8/18 with the rear ramps. So they defin...
