Hataka Hobby - Polish Air Force / Army Helicopters paint set vol. 1
Pzl W-3 Sokol was designed in Poland in late-1970s / 80s as a future standard medium-size multipurpose helicopter of the Warsaw Pact. Transport versions, introduced into Polish Af in early 1990s, initially wore a colourful 'Salamander' camo. The same colours were later used on Mi-8RL local Sar modification. After creation of 25th Air Cavalry Division in 1994 a new 'green-brown' camouflage was developed for W-3W armed variant of Sokol. It was also applied on Mi-2s of Army Aviation during periodic overhauls (interestingly, it was never used on Mi-8/17/24 used in the same units).
