Ukraine will collect American combat helicopters from Vietnam times


The militarization of Ukraine continues. To the 30th anniversary of the country's independence, i.e. no later than August 2021, the Odessa Aviation Plant is to assemble the first copy of the American multipurpose combat helicopter Bell UH-1 Iroquois (Iroquois) during the Vietnam War, Ukrainian media write.


Licensed assembly should be established in the near future in one of the workshops of the said state enterprise. This was announced by the head of the state concern Ukroboronprom, Yuri Gusev, who was appointed to this position in December 2020 by decree of President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The organization of the production of helicopters is now at the final stage. The project is funded by investment funds

- noted the functionary.

Gusev added that the OAZ should provide technique and weapons of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. To increase the supply of products to the OAZ, they plan to organize a special school for aircraft designers.

Note that OAZ is one of the oldest airlines. It was founded during the Russian Empire in 1911 on the basis of the repair shop of the Odessa Aero Club. Currently, OAZ carries out repairs of engines and units of the Su-27, MiG-29 and products of the An family.

OAZ is the only Ukrainian enterprise capable of overhauling the airframe and MiG-21 and L-39 engines. In addition, light aircraft Anatra 2 and Y1 Dolphin were created there.

According to the planned reform of the military-industrial complex, they want to organize an aircraft repair holding in Ukraine, which will include seven companies.

    The Mohawk is a beautiful, epoch-making helicopter that can be used even now if upgraded.

      What hints, Cyril, to use for what, with whom are you going to fight ???

      P.S. About the "use" of this helicopter by the American aggressors-neo-colonialists in Vietnam and in other terrorist operations of the American special services and their native puppets - the "wiped" book "Chicken Hawk", numerous newsreels and Hollywood militants, but nothing about peaceful cargo transportation and passenger airlines! request
      After all, there is only one step from here to the "licensed assembly" of the anti-tank "Hugh Cobra", a combat helicopter based on the military transport "Iroquois" - WHY ??!
      And it (instead of stopping the anti-national-anti-state murderous kleptoderiban of the remnants of the "former Ukrainian SSR" and a turn to building a peaceful, prosperous life on this unfortunate "non-existent territory", Ameroholuyskoe escalation of aggression, beneficial only to the malicious Fashington and his thieves / thieves, thieves, satradic "! fool negative ) for us, PEACEFUL working multinational Ukrainian population, do we really need ??! No.

        oh, leave those pathetic-schizoid speeches of yours to someone else. I'm only talking about the helicopter and nothing else. And the Iroquois can also be used for civilian purposes - for example, in rescue operations, as air medical assistance, to monitor forest and farmland, etc. This is a universal machine, like the Russian Mi-8.

          Kiryusha, are you delusional, are you absolutely delusional, "big man", what kind of "air medical aid" is, if we have already canceled "ground medical aid" for the peaceful indigenous population in the colony, our life is worthless in the assessments of the Amero Bandera occupiers, from where such "care" (perhaps, have time to remove the "organs" and deliver them to the "golden billion" ?!) ??! wassat

            Judging by your confused comments, it's only you who are delusional here.

            Once again, for the dull ones. I spoke only about the helicopter itself, I did not talk about how it is planned or not planned to be used in Ukraine. This is clear?

      I completely agree with you. Bell UH-1 Iroquois ("Iroquois") - a chic helicopter checked by time. This is a kind of AK in helicopter engineering. They will modernize, install new equipment and will be relevant for many years to come.
      Hurray, the patriots stuffed you with minuses, I put +, at least it's true.

      The idiots always make fun of those who start doing something from scratch, revive what was destroyed due to initial stupidity, and so on. Like, look, the whole world has gone where, and this "someone" starts with something "simple" and something "foreign", but he himself cannot create anything. Yeah, funny ... idiots. The USSR also started from scratch after the collapse of the Russian Empire and ended up with the second economy (and some say that the first one) of the world. So is China. Ukraine is slowly, gradually restoring its industry, and will restore it, moreover, in a new technological order, and the salary of the Ukrainian population is increasing, but Russia, which is under sanctions and under oligarchic control, with an "economy" completely tied to extracting natural resources and selling them to "beyond the cordon", stagnates more and more, its people are becoming more and more impoverished. Someone here jumped for joy, called and screamed for several years that Ukraine, they say, "is about to": "freeze", "die of hunger", "go bankrupt", "will be sold out", "depopulated", "will fall apart! and so on and so on, and on the contrary, under sanctions that will benefit it, it will build a new economy and break ahead with a" doubled GDP ", with newly created" 25 million highly paid, high-tech jobs ", with an" average salary of an ordinary worker of 2500 dollars ", with" apartments for a family with an area of ​​at least 100 sq. m "and other" promises. " "for food and everything else, in" cheloveinniki "(instead of" 175 sq. m.), with a "zeroed", "patriotic constitution" and "no man's palaces"?

        Here you are right, how much dirt is poured on Russia about this. True, there is one but ... It is not necessary to start with the Wright brothers' airplane, there are more recent samples. Rather two but ... Not necessarily trying to create something new with one hand, and destroy the existing one with the other.

        Yeah, funny ... idiots.

        I see you, too, do not mind pozuboskalit? smile

        The USSR also started from scratch after the collapse of the Russian Empire and ended up with the second economy (and some say that the first one) of the world. So is China.

        In the USSR and China, Biden did not lay his feet on the table.

        Ukraine is slowly, gradually restoring its industry, and will restore it, moreover, in a new technological order, and the salary of the Ukrainian population is increasing,

        True? Is it possible in numbers? What was restored, how much production was increased. Share your successes. I really want to be happy for the neighbors smile

        But Russia, which is under sanctions and under oligarchic rule, with an "economy" completely tied to pumping out natural resources and selling them to the "cordon", is stagnating more and more, its people are becoming more and more impoverished.

        Bored girls ... negative Monstrous eksperDy reading out the training manuals of the last century, worn to holes, it went.
        Let you justify your lies on the points?
        1) Russia is under oligarchic rule.
        2) "Economy" is completely tied to pumping out natural resources and selling them to the "cordon".
        3) Stagnates more and more.
        As for the people, they are increasingly impoverished, there is some truth, incomes are really decreasing. You have the opportunity to erase but also show in figures how the people in Ukraine are getting richer with the support of "the whole world is with us."

        Someone here jumped for joy, called and screamed for several years that Ukraine, they say, "is about to": "freeze", "die of hunger", "go bankrupt", "will be sold out", "depopulated", "fall apart! and so on and so on

        And who is this mysterious "someone"? And why did you decide to complain to me about him? Note, you did not name the term by which it will "freeze", "starve to death", "go bankrupt", "will be sold out", "depopulated", "will fall apart!
        Ukraine is quite successfully implementing all these points. yes What is the essence of the claims?

        while Russia, on the contrary, under sanctions that will benefit it, will build a new economy and break ahead with a "doubled GDP", with newly created "25 million highly paid, high-tech jobs", with an "average salary of an ordinary worker of $ 2500", with "apartments for a family with an area of ​​at least 100 sq. m "and other promises."

        Believe it or not, Russia is successfully implementing all these points. Much has not yet been done, but work is progressing.

        So how? how is life with these promises in "Great" Russia, which has risen from its knees "at a minimum wage of 175USD, with practically" European prices "for food and everything else, in" cheloveinniki "(instead of" 100 sq. m.), with "zeroed", " patriotic constitution "and" no man's palaces "?

        You will be surprised, but better than in Ukraine with confidently running along the European route to a happy future with a minimum wage of 171USD. In any case, they come to us to work, and not vice versa.
        Let you read less slogans, more facts are better. The price of bread (or whatever) is here and in Europe. You can morally crush us with data on the volume of housing under construction, the share of citizens who own it, you can specify the square of how much we have per person in Europe. In my opinion, ours is better, you say no man's palaces are lying around, almost like in Prostokvashino.

        Do you think that the release of a helicopter during the Vietnam War is a new technological level? You would quit smoking, otherwise it looks like you were covered ... The Iroquois is inferior even to the Mi-8 in all respects, such as maximum flight altitude (ceiling), maximum speed, carrying capacity, and an attempt to use it for military purposes will end in failure. The very first meeting with the Mi-24 will become a swan song for him, when he meets the Mi-28, or the Ka-52 he will live even less. The USSR began with the destroyed civil war, far from the most advanced industry of the Russian Empire, you received a developed industry from the USSR and destroyed everything ...

    And from what will she collect them? From the Vietnamese wreckage? In the best case, they will overhaul helicopters for the "3-world" countries or from storage bases.

      Sometimes I have to visit Ukraine on business trips. And I see with my own eyes changes for the better both in the economy and in the life of Ukrainians. But recently I was in Russia and drove from Vladivostok to Perm by car and what did I see? And I saw that again, as in the 90s, the "shoulder" crowds are standing for a scribe, you cannot survive without work in another way, and again, as in the 90s, road bandits-reeters appeared. The stagnation of the country is obvious - people are losing sources of income, plus they have tightened the screws in terms of survival without earnings, poaching and life from the river and forest, and out of hopelessness they go out on the "high road". Your "effective managers", "public servants" and "multi-move geniuses" will play out ...

        fig to myself such bold applications from Monster_Fat. And I have to be not on business, but to live CONSTANTLY in Ukraine. What are these changes "for the better", eh? I know only a few. And, well, yes, it’s now you can work quietly over the hill, but here in Ukraine spending is a plus. I agree. I am so familiar with shuttle traders full of visa-free work: 3 months beyond the hill, 3 months here. By local standards, very good money is raised. There is no one to work - one drunk, in fact, and pensioners who are able to earn extra money, but a normal people once or twice have run out of things, too. The main thing is that our "friends" feel good. Tariffs are driven into space. Also a plus. Fat. And then the rolls have been relaxed. What kind of shower every day? Once a week and free! What kind of gas? You heat with wood until everything has been cut and taken out over the hillock, like a round timber. The pension is less than pennies than to pay for a communal apartment? children should support you! We have everything thought out: this is done to increase the birth rate Only for some reason (and this is the official data of the Ukrainian state statistics), the fertility rate in the country has dropped by 40% since 2014. payments for the birth of a child, I am silent at all.
        But there are a lot of cars, and there are more and more of them. From the United States, in recent years, cue balls have been brought in by ships on the stream and Eurobills are jammed on the roads. The kopecks are worth it. .We like.
        There are 3-4 supermarkets at each intersection. And they build and build them. Mostly cheap discounters, but now this is a global trend. They are already half-empty - there are no so many people in the country, but there are almost no queues in them either - a plus. So that we are keeping up with the times and with the rest of the world ... And you say that they are not building anything, like factories-factories. After all, they are building! And you can see that the wallet is full, since they are building. There is nowhere to go and we must at least invest in something. Well, not in production!
        And they are completely building private houses. The suburbs of large cities are all built up. The officials have very good salaries, especially from grant-eating structures, such as the Soros Revival, and any observers in various councils for all more or less large state-owned companies. once a month I received my 10-15 thousand $ on the advice at a minimum salary. This is how you need to take care of your citizens (and not about your own too) and pursue social policy.
        So, 5-6 large cities in the country really stick out very well. It's a pity that this is about only 20-25% of the entire country. And hell with the rest! The main thing is that we feel good about who from this percentage, and there further - even though the grass does not grow.

    A question almost from the "Field of Miracles": "visits Ukraine and was recently in Russia."
    Question # 1: What country does this person live in?
    Question number 2: why does he compare us Russians?
    Well, the conclusion: instead of sending us this sent Cossack to his historical homeland so that he would deal with his affairs there.

    - Yes ... most likely the United States will simply supply Ukraine with used helicopters (they probably have them in bulk in warehouses and in bulk and spare parts for these helicopters) ...
    - So, you see ... - and after some time Ukraine will also begin to supply these "helicopters" somewhere in Africa ...
