look at this guy trying to see through cover closed nvg.
AND he was our DEFENSE MINISTER
Nice find! Interesting placement there ie not at the front of the helo indicating that the purpose is to be used for ground surveleince and not assisting in flying.
These traditional nosed ones don't have the space. It should be useful for flying as well. It could also be a retrofit by us like in sea kings
The postioning of this would preclude its use by the pilots IMO. It looks like it will be used for ground survelince only (like the Sea King EO balls).
+ If you notice this Mi-17 has emergency floatation gear which suggests it is used for short ranged coastal duties (limited SAR or surveillance) much like the Sea Kings. The IN and ICG really need to have their air wings (especially helo fleets) expanded MASSIVELY.
