MOSCOW, May 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will complete the delivery of a batch of 48 Mi-171 helicopters to China this year, Vladislav Kuzmichev, deputy chief of the Rosoboronexport state corporation's department for the export of helicopter technology and services, told ITAR-TASS on Thursday at the HeliRussia-2014 exhibition.

"We shall complete the supply of Mi-171 helicopters (to China) this year. This is a contract dated 2012 for 48 helicopters. We shall fulfill it in summer," Kuzmichev said.

He recalled that Russia also has a contract with Peru for delivery of twenty-four Mi-171Sh helicopters. "We begin to implement the contract at the end of this year and complete filling it next year," he added.

Beginning from this year, Russia starts deliveries of Mi-28N helicopters. However, Rosoboronexport sources do not specify to which countries and in what amounts. "We already have available signed contracts. This year we begin exporting Mi-28N helicopters," Kuzmichev said.

Speaking of the Ka-52, he recalled that the helicopter had been first introduced on the international market at an air show at Le Bourget in Paris in 2013. "This is a new helicopter. It has a specific diagram of construction (It has two lift rotors. — ITAR-TASS). Therefore, we have to explain all the merits to customers. We recommend them in countries with a hot climate and high-mountain conditions. It is early to speak of some deliveries so far," Kuzmichev added.
