Russia will give Mi-17 to the Philippines

44
Intense competition prevailing in the global arms trade is forcing potential suppliers of military equipment to break into local markets by any means capable of influencing the customer.




Russia is no exception in this regard. As Mintfo explains, trying to conclude a deal involving the sale of Mi-17 multipurpose rotorcraft, Moscow is ready to give Manila a gift. According to the media, we are talking about the gratuitous transfer of the Mi-17 helicopter in the VIP configuration, designed for "very important people."

With this step, Russia plans to reach an agreement on the Philippines acquiring 16 Mi-17 units as standard for the needs of the local air force. It is expected that this gift will be made this week during a visit to Russia by the head of state Rodrigo Duterte. It is expected that a designated contract will be signed as part of this visit.

The main event of the trip will be a bilateral meeting with President Putin, at which the leaders will discuss the state of our relations and the possibilities of strengthening and expanding cooperation in various fields

- said in an official statement by the Foreign Ministry of the Philippines.

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Defense signed a contract to supply the US Air Force with 16 Sikorsky S-70i Black Hawks helicopters.

              The discount is the seller’s desire to make a profit not by selling 10 products at a high price, but by increasing sales, from selling 50 products at a lower price.
              Friendly advice - do not substitute, starting to comment on issues in which you are poorly versed.

      In June, the Air Force signed a contract with Sikorsky on 16 vehicles for 241 million dollars. It is doubtful that they will buy another 16 Mi-171. For they initially wanted to buy 16 helicopters.

        Well, with a VIP gift, they’ll buy yes
        According to a Business Mirror report, the contract will cost about 12,5 billion PHP.
        We translate the Philippine pesos into $, we get 244 118 750. It’s also not bad.

The main thing is that in the Philippines every God’s day, “independent” Filipinos walk all the streets, with red flags and portraits of our leaders and with chants like: Stalin allowed smoking, sniffing and injecting!

            I don't. Moreover, it (the helicopter) is not mine, but, as far as I understand, is the property of the Moscow Region. So, that's up to them. And what, in our country there are few places where this helicopter might be needed? And to distribute ... Especially where, we already know: today is one, tomorrow is another. Let's leave the "cannibals" to themselves, and in about 30-50 years, we'll see who and what to invest in.
