HTK-BS86 Russian AF Helicopters paint set vol. 1
Standard colours of Russian AF helicopters since 2010
Although part of post-soviet helicopters operated by the Russian AF still wears a mix of various colour schemes gained during gradual overhauls in many workshops, in early 2010s a new standard scheme of overall dark grey was successfully introduced on most types including Mi-8/17 family, Mi-26 heavy transports and Mi-24/35, Mi-28 and Ka-52 attack helicopters. Only after less than 5 years a decision was made to revert to more standard 3-colour camouflage of green (contrary to more olive colour used in the soviet times) and light tan on upper surfaces, with rather bright blue lower surfaces. Up to date representatives of all above mentioned types have already been observed in this new scheme.
