Give us helicopters and more! India sent a request for the supply of Ka-226T

Holding "Helicopters of Russia" received from the Indian Defense Ministry official request for the supply of Ka-200T helicopters, reports RIA News A message from the general director of the association Andrei Boginsky.

Give us helicopters and more! India sent a request for the supply of Ka-226T

We actively discussed the localization program in the spring, our proposals were submitted by the Indian Ministry of Defense. The final version of RFP (Request For Proposal) was received, and before 1 August we have to make an offer
Boginsky told reporters.

New Delhi last year approved a tender for the purchase of multipurpose helicopters for the Navy. It is reported that the helicopters will be involved in “search and rescue, humanitarian, observation and counter-terrorist operations”, and will also serve as target designation for ship combat systems.

Recall that in 2015, the parties signed an agreement on cooperation in the supply of two hundred Ka-226 helicopters and its modifications to India, with most of the machines - 140 units - to be produced in India using joint venture facilities.

        Do not be shy to bargain - this is absolutely normal. The customer is the customer. And the Indian market is very large and you can’t lose it, then you won’t fit in. Therefore, one must endure and seek a compromise.

            Such a nature among Indians means - rosin's head, but only few of them pay with real money, and also not on credit. Therefore, one must be the last donkey to ruin everything.

              And who pays the dead money is the question, and what does the commentator say is real money? And also if there is real money, then there must be dead. And as far as I know, Russia does not have agreements with China, as with China, that such foreign trade operations would be ensured with the help of regional currencies, but only with the help of the world reserve currency, the dollar.

      How do you like this "astronomy" -
      The head of Rostec state corporation Sergey Chemezov told Russian President Vladimir Putin that a contract with India for the supply of 200 Ka-226T helicopters exceeds 1 billion dollars.

        Five million per helicopter, plus those maintenance, it is not very expensive. Cheaper only from plywood

    But is money so good that for free (almost) we transfer KNOWLEDGE? What are the conditions that we must go to teach, transfer technologies, equipment, rigging, stands and instrumentation? Separate, sell planes at market price, and production capabilities, if it doesn’t hurt ours.

    Yes, India simply wants to know the terms of the contract, it doesn’t need piece deliveries per year, and manufacturers can no longer go on the hike or "fog" - everything is logical.

    Russian Helicopters Holding received an official request from the Indian military department for the supply of 200 Ka-226T helicopters, RIA Novosti reports a message from the association’s general director Andrei Boginsky.

    Q.E.D. As I said, in addition to ordering the SU-30, the Indians, as at the sale, will order a lot of the most modern. The ruble is cheap, and oil is expensive. I will not be surprised if in the near future, the Indians will order a large batch of T-90, and S-400 ...

      Russia has extended the Indian partners license for the production of T-90S tanks and is ready for the supply of finished vehicles assembled at Russian enterprises, reports RIA Novosti the message of the Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Vladimir Drozhzhov.

      Earlier, Indian media reported that the procurement commission of the country's Defense Ministry approved the proposed deal with the Russian Federation on the purchase of X-NUMX T-464 tanks.
      The Russian side agreed to extend the license for the production of tanks, and we are ready to satisfy any appeal of our Indian partners regarding the increase in production or supply of T-90С tanks,
      said Drozhzhov.
      According to him, the Russian side is aware of the plans of the Indian military department regarding the additional acquisition of tanks, but no official appeal has yet been received on this issue.
      We cannot now say whether it will be the supply of ready-made tanks, or vehicle sets for assembling them, or components for licensed production of tanks,
      added Drozhov.
      The agency recalls that in 2006, Russia signed a contract for the supply of India with 1 thousand T-90С tanks. About 470-ti were collected in the territory of the Russian Federation, the rest - in India under license.

      And the T-50s no longer want? Like kittens, the eyes of the Indians erupted :-)

      Of course, they wanted a light combat aircraft. They say since 2014 they do this in Ukraine. This is "stealth" so "stealth", many have heard about it, but no one has seen ...
