LE BOURGET, October 28. /TASS/. France is involved in upgrading of Ukrainian helicopter gunships Mil Mi-24, TASS learnt at international naval show Euronavale-2014 being held in Le Bourget, a Paris neighbourhood.

Sagem, a French high-tech company from the Safran group, industrial conglomeration specialised in electronics and high technologies, is a French counterparty in chopper’s modernisation project. Ukraine’s state-run concern Ukroboronprom is a contracting party in this project.

France noted that helicopter gunships would be able to make flights all round the clock and in any weather. A pilot will be provided with an upgraded display built in his helmet that will probably screen information about the order of a helicopter along with an aiming sight.

Upgraded choppers Mi-24 will be armed with anti-tank guided missiles Alta with a 12-kilometer fire range which Kiev design office Luch is developing.

Sagem officials refrained from any comments on the company involved in upgrading of Ukrainian helicopter gunships.
