I think this is one time when one has to agree that the Russians got it wrong
and Sikorsky got it right with his S-64 Sky Crane.
It is pure utilitarian genius:

There is nothing nicer than good aircraft photos. Take the one of the HIND squadron for example.... :thumleft: thanks Butch

Fud   Igor Sikorsky..........The name gives it away  :deal:  :biggrin:
Sikorsky was born in Kiev, Ukraine.
He fled after the Bolshevist Revolution and eventually got to USA,
where he became a naturalized US citizen.

Is this with upgraded instrumentation? Quite sophisticated for its time.  Mig 23 was a more versatile jet though?
Whataboutism . When Cold War criticisms were leveled at the Soviet Union, the response would be "What about..." followed by the naming of an event in the Western world. It represents a case of tu quoque (appeal to hypocrisy), a logical fallacy that attempts to discredit the opponent's position by asserting the opponent's failure to act consistently in accordance with that position, without directly refuting or disproving the opponent's initial argument

Upgrade is subjective here .What is state of the art in Russia may not apply  elsewhere  :biggrin: but this work horse of so many air forces is easy to operate and maintain because of its relative simplicity.
