KUMERTAU (Bashkiria), March 30. /TASS/. The United Arab Emirates is interested in purchasing Kamov Ka-226 and Ansat light helicopters from Russia, CEO of Russian Helicopters rotocraft manufacturer Andrei Boginsky said on Thursday.
"Arab colleagues have interest in Ka-226 and Ansat helicopters. We’re carrying out this work and considering various options," the chief executive said.
The Ka-226T light utility multirole helicopter with a coaxial rotor system has a maximum takeoff weight of 3.4 tonnes and is capable of carrying up to 1 tonne of payload. The Ka-226T helicopter features unique modular design. It can easily integrate a transport module whose design allows carrying up to six persons or modules outfitted with special equipment.
The Ansat light two-engine multipurpose helicopter has been developed by the design bureau at the Kazan Helicopter Enterprise and is designed for 7-9 seats. Work was finished in June 2016 to increase the rotocraft’s takeoff weight to 3,600 kg. The helicopter’s various modifications and the possibility to quickly replace equipment allows it to solve successfully a wide range of missions.
