Since they say they move KA-52s to Syria now, these are might be examples of the machines soon ISIS is going to see. Those are newest and most advanced KA-52s copters - KA-52 K Models. They are going to hit
hard, and here is why - just take a detailed look on how cool are those. This is the FIRST PUBLIC appearance of those machines, and you are going to witness them first hand too as well:
As the author of these photos put it - "boys in a village also enjoy doing sports, but not always they have a gym nearby or can afford it at all, so often they make gyms themselves from the things they have

Russian blogger Dmitry is traveling thru Siberia and shared with his readers a few photos of awesome the Egraki hills near Krasnoyarsk. Nature is really stunning there. Just a few shots but the views are

Now while Russia is engaged in Syria the airplanes sooner or later would need to get repaired. So let's take a look at an awesomely huge aircraft repair factory in the Staraya Russa town. Thanks to Marina who made those
awesome photos (again!). This aircraft repair shop is the biggest in Russia and most successful after USSR collapse. It repairs all sorts of large aircraft, both civil and military. Let's take a look:
