MOSCOW, August 25. /TASS/. Russia has found a solution for a heavy helicopter’s new engine instead of the Ukrainian analog, Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.
"We have found it [the import substitution option]. I’ll go to Perm again soon to hear ready proposals prepared by our engine makers. They have already found a solution, which we, in principle, have brought to the notice of the Chinese side. We no longer depend on any one in this area," Rogozin said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV Channel."
The Russian-Chinese project of developing a heavy helicopter is being implemented successfully enough, the vice-premier said.
The engine for the heavy helicopter remained a major problem until now, he added.
"After what happened in Kiev: the Maidan and the seizure of power by putschists, it became clear that we had to look for new options [for the new engine] inside Russia and we found it," Rogozin said.
"The development of the new engine will take five years," the vice-premier said.
Russia has no "big interest" in this heavy helicopter but this helicopter has large export potential, Rogozin said, adding this was a good commercial project.
