Negotiations on deliveries of Russian Ka-226T helicopters to India are continuing, the Indian side believes that deliveries may begin in two years, said Bipin Rawat, head of the Indian Army, on Friday.


Deliveries of Ka-226T helicopters to India can begin in two years


The process continues. We will get the helicopters in the complete set. Yes, it will take time, because when you ask the manufacturing country for fully assembled helicopters, they are not immediately available. They begin to make after the order was made. As soon as the assembly is completed, they will be delivered to us. They (the Russian side) very much hope that deliveries will begin in two years
- said Rawat at the annual press conference in New Delhi.

An agreement between the Russian Federation and India on cooperation in the field of helicopter construction was signed in 2015. According to the document, Russian Helicopters will organize deliveries to India and localize production of the Ka-226T Russian helicopter and its modifications in the amount of 200 units in this country, with at least 140 units of them being produced at a joint venture in India.

The Ka-226T light multipurpose helicopter is designed to perform transport and special tasks in any weather conditions. The helicopter can carry up to 1,5 tons of cargo for distances up to 600 kilometers, take-off weight - tons 3,4.

      You have a "war against all" is limited to pouring mud on Russia. Is Russia ALL? But what about the "civilized" world - crumbs on our table and nothing more? Burn on :)

    however, at least 140 units of them should be produced at the facilities of a joint venture in India.


    All the same, they bargained ...

      And the amount of the contract is $ 1 billion. Raises questions

          200 helicopters, even taking into account the production and assembly of 140 pieces in India, for $ 1 billion, this is a very small amount. In all likelihood there are clauses in the contract that compensate Russia for such a low cost.

            Well, actually ka-226 is not MI-8 and the price is three times less

            Such contracts usually provide for the "unfastening" of a certain amount for each copy produced. I don’t know how we agreed in this case.

            normal price - it turns out 5 million bucks apiece (more expensive than the T90 tank)

    This Indian tender has been going on for more than 10 years. The French will announce the winners, then annul the results of the tender. It would seem that Russian Helicopters had so much time to start preparing the production when the chances for a final victory began to appear. Instead, they rushed about as if with a written bag, trying to attach KumAPP somewhere because of its unprofitability in view of the lack of new orders in his portfolio. Maybe it was better to invest in the KumAPP update?
    But now he’s feverishly making up for lost time with connecting to the UAZ assembly.

    Or they may not start, but maybe later, or maybe not helicopters, but bicycles.
