Possible? Yes. Probable? Maybe not. Your guess is as good as mine.Costas 240GD said:So, it is entirely within the realm of possibility that we may see actual Z-8s in a similar configuration.
I'm not sure. The Russian Hips can carry all sorts of goodies. But how much is China taking advantage of . . . I don't know.@Bueller: I have so far seen only rocket pods on chinese Mi-17s. But can they carry the indigenous 12,7mm HMG pod, the same one seen carried by Z-9 and SA-342 Gazelles? That pod, BTW, might also be a probable for the armed Z-8.
