    <p>VLADIMIR KARNOZOV / MOSCOW</p> <p>Russia's helicopter industry remains hampered by overcapacity, but has managed to adapt to the new realities and stabilise annual production</p> <p>As it entered the post-Cold War era, Russia's helicopter industry was suddenly faced with a rapidly disappearing domestic market, while being left with a vast manufacturing base.</p> <p>The initial enthusiasm for penetrating Western markets through co-operation deals quickly faded, with the focus returning to long-standing export customers which valued the low purchase and operational costs and rugged design of Russian helicopters. Although new designs are on the cards, the emphasis is on upgrading existing types, many of which are expected to be in demand for at least another decade.</p> <p>New designs in flight test include the Mil Mi-28N, Mi-38 and Kamov Ka-50/52 and Ka-60. These will not, however, replace production models as long as updated designs of old workhorses such as the Mil Mi-8/17, Mi-2http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Still-hovering-169986/
