“We” will upgrade when the VIPs that use them crash and die in one.

Here is the Osprey, aka The Widowmaker. High-tech in all aspect.

Why the name Widowmaker ?

People call it the “widow maker” because of a series of fatal crashes during its production. Historically, though, the Osprey’s proven to be safer than many aircraft, and until recently, I’ve felt lucky it’s what Tom flies. I didn’t worry like my friends whose husbands fly F/A-18s.

Upgrade to what though?
This is a country that can barely run public universities competently, much less manage Russian made helicopters that its armed forces use.

And on top of that, the user list of the Mil-17 list is fairly long. One might say its the most popular helicopter in the world.

@Ndindu kwanza wewe ni ng’ombe sana. But I understand you are trolling.
