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:

Hydraulic system: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=152670

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!

Saw now. Fantastic.

The thing is, helicopters are different from planes. An airplane by it's nature wants to fly, and if not interfered with too strongly by unusual events or by a deliberately incompetent pilot, it will fly. A helicopter does not want to fly. It is maintained in the air by a variety of forces in opposition to each other, and if there is any disturbance in this delicate balance the helicopter stops flying; immediately and disastrously.
