    Fuelling 10 BTRs is pretty good.

    There was also that exercise a while back where a Mi-26 arrived with all the equipment to set up a forward helicopter base... not sure whether it was one or more helicopters carried the required bits but they were able to fly in and set up a helicopter base... operate for a couple of days and then all fly out.

    Getting more of these helos into service should be a good thing...

    Was Russia ever able to repatriate engine production for the MI-26?

    It is supposed to be replaced with the PD-12V engine. It is still at the component test stage at this point.
    Last I heard they were testing the turboshaft rod.

    They might start working on it once PD-8 is done.

    Well they can clearly keep the ones they have running and have made a few more AFAIK, but new engines are definitely a priority.

    The engines for the Hinds, Hips, Havocs, Hokums, and Helixes were a higher priority though AFAIK and that is sorted with the new engines being more powerful...
