Speaking strictly as a man who loves anything that flies, I have to say, that is a face only a mother could love. I mean, that is one ugly bird... but it’s a damn hard working bird.

Russians do build some nice stuff. I can see a lot of practical things in that design. Build them up any way you like them.

Like an air jeep. Cool birds!

17 US' senators have sent a statement to Pentagon declaring the US' Department of Defense should drop a 900 million dollars contract to supply a Russian Mi-17 helicopter fleet to Afghanistan,

What are we, the United States, doing in buying Russian helicopters to give to Afghanistan?

It's hard to believe that Afghans admire Russian products more so than weapons from America.
