Thumbs up "How it Works" Mi-8 systems

AlphaOneSix did a great job at explaining the various systems of the Mi-8 using RL pictures, drawings and diagrams.

All these little gems were discussed in detail in their own thread and as such, got pushed down the list.
Since this information is important and, in my opinion, a mandatory read for every Mi-8 pilot, I'm posting them here for everyone to read.

Here goes:

Ice protection system: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=152402
Fuel system: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=151933
Hydraulic system: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=152670
Flight controls: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=152786
Electrical system: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=152830
Fire protection system: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=151326

All kudos and praise to AlphaOneSix, thanks man, great stuff.

If I've missed a system, please let me know.

Let's hope we can get this stickied!

There are more but I need to convert them, which is a bit of a pain because I used a lot of animations. Maybe that was a bad idea...
