Machines have already arrived at their base and have begun to carry combat duty.- said in a statement.
According to the holding, the supplied helicopters are equipped with modern radio communication and flight-navigation equipment, and a satellite navigation system is installed on them. Machines adapted to the use of night vision goggles. In addition, the main fuel tanks are filled with polyurethane foam, which prevents the explosion of fuel from small bullets weapons, and additional fuel tanks placed in the cargo compartment increase the helicopter's range to 1065 km.
Enhancing the security of helicopters when performing combat missions is achieved due to the installed set of easily removable armor plates, the presence of a device for ejecting heat traps HC-26M and equipment for setting infrared interference- noted in the "Helicopter Rossi".
The Mi-8AMTSH military transport helicopters handed over to the Russian Guard are equipped with modern equipment that allows carrying out the tasks of ensuring public order and public safety, countering terrorism, protecting important state facilities and assisting border agencies in protecting the state border 24 hours a day.- said deputy general director of sales holding Vladislav Savelyev.
The number of helicopters in the lot is not called, but earlier in the holding they announced plans to supply three Mi-2017AMTShs in the fourth quarter of 8.
