The M-8 military chopper has been in service in Russia for several years; it is also operated by dozens of countries across the world.

In regards to the Russian military’s usage of the Mi-8, their air force used the aircraft extensively during their campaign in Syria.

+++ “The Mi-8 military chopper has been in service in Russia for several years”.
=> A little more than several years : Mi-8 was introduced in service… 53 years ago and had its first flight on July 7th… 1961!!!!
With more than 17,000 built, it’s the most produced helicopter ever… Mi-8/17 are in use by either the military or other official services in about 75-80 countries including the USA as the special forces and the CIA own some.
