Hip is a legend, a trully working horse. Is MTB-5 a lift mofication and what are the peculiarities of this modification?
the Mi-8MTV-5 is a new modification/variant of the Mi-8. it can be armed with either a rocket pod for 80 S-8 unguided rockets or a 23mm gun pod, as well as being equipped with a Vitebsk EW system, able to operate during day/night as well as adverse weather.

What's the actual difference between Vitebsk and President-S system? As far as I know, it's the same system. The only difference is that President-S is its export name. The EW system itself intended not only for helicopters, but for aircraft as well.

in order to counter NATO's buildup and to somewhat reduce reliance on Russia for security measures, some of our officials were holding negotiations "under the table" (secretly) to purchase ~8 Su-35s. it is also said that Russia is proposing to export us MiG-35s as well.
