NEW DELHI, December 28, 18:19 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Nepal have signed a contract to supply two Russia’s Mi-17-B5 helicopters, a source at the Nepalese Defence Ministry told Itar-Tass.
“The contract has been signed. Supplies should start in 2014,” the source said, adding that the price of the contract had not been specified.
Nepal is armed with Russia’s Mi-17 helicopters. The Mi-17-B5 helicopters will be supplied to Nepal for the first time.
The Mi-17-B5 helicopter is designed to transport cargoes and paratroopers, as well as oversize loads. The Mi-17-B5 combat helicopter is designed for fire support of ground troops, landing forces and target bombing.
In February 2012 India was armed with over 20 Mi-17B5 Russian helicopters. The parties signed a contract to supply 80 Mi-17B5 helicopters in 2008 at the amount of about 1.3 billion dollars.
