It should be noted that the Rumas 15 model also had the ability to perform flights to detect and extinguish fires, however, due to the small mass on board the helicopter, this option had a rather low efficiency.

Due to successfully completed flight tests, the helicopter Rumas 20F became mass-produced, however, due to the fact that in fact it has become possible only recently, information on the number of built and sold aircraft of this model no.
