India will buy four Mi-24 for the Afghan army from Belarus

9
In early March, Afghanistan, India and Belarus signed a trilateral memorandum of understanding regarding the supply of four combat helicopters Mi-24 to the Afghan army, reports bmpd with reference to the Hindustan Times newspaper.


One of the four Afghanistan-received Mi-25 (Mi-24D) helicopters received from the Indian Air Force (tail number "119") at Kabul Airport, 25.12.2015.

Under the terms of the agreement, India at its own expense will acquire four Mi-24 from the presence of the Belarusian army, pay for their repair and delivery to Afghanistan "within a few months."

At the same time, the Armed Forces of Afghanistan have a plan for the transition to American aircraft developed and implemented by the Americans. However, “the Afghan government has asked India to supply Soviet-made Mi-24 combat helicopters, and India was kind enough to respond to this request,” said Afghan ambassador to India Shaida Mohammad Abdali.

In the 2015-2016 years, India has already transferred four Mi-25 (Mi-24D) helicopters from its troops in order of assistance to the Afghan armed forces. Today, these machines are already in non-flying state. According to the newspaper, currently "the Indian side is working on the issue of repairing all four helicopters."

    They didn’t bite the geldings, they won’t be able to drive their “Helicopters" into the Afghansbelay
    They also need to fight, and not arrange colorful shows about the super-technology of the "greatest" nation in the Galaxy, listen to stories laughing
    Hindus need to repair their donations, Belarusians sell outdated ones with a profit (still not for scrap).
    ... the Indian side is working on the issue of repairing all four helicopters ...

    Belarusians have something to help Indians - Orsha Aircraft Repair Plant, provides services for the repair of aircraft, including helicopters Mi-8 (Mi-17), Mi-24 (Mi-35) yes

    But will he buy, and if he does, then knowing the Indians, how many years will the Belarusians have to wait? ??

      Helicopters from the presence of the Belarusian army are second-hand, probably the price is appropriate. Most likely they will buy.

      Hindus will exhaust the soul of the Old Man. Our soul was exhausted when buying the T90, but we held out.

    Afghans first rolled our new lips on the Mi-35, and even for free, like we are fighting terrorism together. But even ours did not add to this cranberry, it's not heroin to take fellow

    Azeta, at present "the Indian side is working on the issue of repairing all four helicopters" ........ The Indians' hands are not sharpened for technology. I understood the title only the second time, tricky.

      The Mi-24D has long been removed from service, but the conversation is about this modification
