MOSCOW, June 19 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s helicopter manufacturing company Rostvertol will demonstrate its upgraded heavy transport helicopter Mi-26T2 to the Algerian Armed Force on July 5-16, a Russian defence complex official told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.

In early July the helicopter will fly to Algeria from Rostov-on-Don, southern Russia.

The helicopter Mi-26T2 has new glass cockpit, airborne radio-electronic equipment and navigation system. Cockpit lighting equipment will be adjusted for the use of night vision goggles.

After the helicopter’s demonstration flight Algeria will decide whether to buy a batch of Mi-26T2.
