It has collected the load and flown off to the gallery.

Details of the pod are sparse. It is either an ST-900 or an ST-9000 or perhaps there were both. It had 3 Bouquet and 8 Fazol jammers. The operators sat in specially designed workstations within the helicopter body.

Possibly as many as 44 were converted from the  basic Mi-10 and became Mi-10PP.

Each conversion cost 7000000 roubles .about 6 times what the helicopter cost when new.

I don't claim that it is totally accurate (especially since I knocked off one of the wheels and have yet to find it)

This has to be the most successful group build yet

I'm certainly enjoying it but helicopters are my thing.( just in case you didn't notice)

I'm actually looking forward to the non-aviation ones

It’s a superb model Richard, of a really fascinating subject. I was finally able to watch @Jessie_C’s video (thank you for sharing it Jessie).

What an amazing machine. For the things that they built, that they could only build because of this helicopter; I hope that they have something equivalent with which to maintain them? Bit of a problem if none of these left and a big important tower needs maintenance.

“High vibration at low speed; is also very often most used speed for this machine; solution for  crew; put up with it and make like wobbly jelly.
Is fine 👍.”

Little know fact is most defect to West; work for evil corporation Broadcasting in  1970’s on wobbly propaganda cartoon:

’Roobarb and Custard’

Due to unique permanent induced wobbliness, much valued by West”

Well done, an enjoyable build and a real learning experience 👍👍😊
