PZL Mi-2. 1966 year.

On December 29, 1966, the 74th Liaison-Sanitary Aviation Regiment adopted the first Mi-2 helicopter, starting its service in the Polish Army, which continues to this day (2018). The helicopters did not stand out from the civilian Mi-2 T helicopters, designed to carry 8 people or cargo weighing up to 700 kg inside the cabin. The Mi-2 T helicopter was named Wiarus.
