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.
