Another new Mi-35M, for the Mali Air Force.

This will always amaze me.  Western forces assist govts all over the world with internal security issues and how do they repay us?  They buy Russian gear!  Not saying that Russian gear is bad, just the opposite actually, in many ways its more practical for many of the nations in question (Iraq and Afghanistan to name a few). 

But i guess the idea of even thinking about "equivalent exchange" is foreign. We risk lives and treasure to secure their nations and they spend their money elsewhere.

Probably a silly critique but its the feeling nonetheless.

Sidenote.  If you want to get the best view of Russia's military then follow Rob on his Twitter page.  You can thank me later!
