MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. The operation in Syria has identified a number of flaws in Russian helicopters, which are to be eliminated in the near future, the deputy CEO of the Helicopters of Russia holding company, Andrey Shibitov, told the media on Thursday. The upgrade program has already been drafted and is being coordinated with the Russian Defense Ministry.
"The use of helicopters in combat conditions involves certain specifics. The tasks facing new generation aircraft have exposed a number of flaws to be eliminated. The helicopters’ performance was successful by and large, but we are well aware of what we should be working on now to make our products more effective. We have already formed a program to identify amendments that will enhance our machines’ effectiveness," Shibitiov said.
