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?

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.
