LE BOURGET, June 19. /TASS/. Russia has won a bid to provide deck helicopters Ka-52K for Egyptian Mistral amphibious assault ships, Head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Dmitry Shugayev, told the media on Monday.
"We can proudly announce that Russia won the bidding contest," he said at the Le Bourget aerospace show on Monday.
"It is now important to agree on the technical concept of the helicopter and the financial conditions. In other words, to conduct pre-contractual work, which is rather tight. There is nothing surprising here, just as in our relations in general. The work carries on and the contact is quite outstanding and significant," Shugayev noted.
Earlier, Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy of the State Corporation Rostec, Viktor Kladov, told TASS the decision to sell Ka-52Ks to Egypt has been made in principle but the contract has not been concluded yet.
The Ka-52K is a naval configuration of the Ka-52 helicopter gunship Alligator. It is meant for patrolling missions, providing fire support for amphibious operations and anti-amphibious defense. The deck configuration has several features that set it apart from the basic one, such as the folding wing adjusted for carrying heavy weapons, and a folding airscrew. Additionally, it is equipped with a special device for rescuing those in distress at sea.
