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.
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.
