India delays signing agreement on purchase of 140 helicopters from Russia


New Delhi puts obstacles in the implementation of the agreement, providing for the acquisition of more than a hundred domestic rotorcraft.


The head of the Russian Helicopters holding said Sunday that India was delaying the signing of a firm agreement to purchase 140 helicopters, despite providing all the information

- The Economic Times reports.

Apparently, we are talking about the acquisition of Ka-226. According to the Indian military, this machine in the designated volume is able to eliminate the acute shortage of funds aviation support for potential enemy penetration.

Maneuverable rotorcraft is able, in their opinion, to ensure the coherence of the work of ground units when building their battle formations in the event of a collision with the Pakistani army. As a result, the expected penetration of the "armored armada of Indian troops" into the territory of the neighboring state will receive the necessary air support for this. Ka-226 is able to provide a comprehensive supply of troops, the implementation of sanitary missions and, with the layout in separate versions, intelligence.

At the same time, this cover must be organized as soon as possible. In this regard, the probability of purchasing Mi-8 / 17 is rejected due to the heavier financial burden.

It is noteworthy that during the Indian Prime Minister’s visit to Russia, they also spoke about a large “helicopter” contract, which was originally signed back in 2015. India, on the basis of this contract, was going to buy 40 Ka-226 directly from Russia, and also to build 160 rotorcraft of this model at its enterprises under a Russian license.

    Rosoboronexport is just children, you bill for helicopters at the price of f35, you pay the difference and put it into your office, you sell so much arms and they rake everything on the same table, they provided information))))

              And that after this 140 helicopters will be sent a parcel to the tunnels?
              And then they will begin to sing and dance at an inflated price, and the one who brought it will sing loudest. Nakraynyak contractual penalty will be paid from the budget, and denyushki in your pocket.
              And helicopters can also be bought from someone else, and this one will also be brought in both for breaking the contract and for concluding a new one.

            Bro, stop comparing Aryans with tabarits. They (the elite of course) for 4 millennia are used to eating on gold, and their night pots are made of gold. Most of the gold on the planet is carried by Indians and Hindus. A terrible struggle for their market because they have not just loot, but precisely gold and stones, but they demand and freeze the transfer of technology, but manufacturers are nervous and shy because of this. This is a loss of both superiority and profit in the future. And the Indians pitted precisely the main producers of the best weapons, Us with the USA and the West as a whole. The position is impeccable. Well, to be honest, it is the Russian Federation that has recently behaved more aggressively on the arms market, has climbed into the old American territories, including even NATO countries (Turkey). The Egyptian market is returning to us, Iraq has given us the Kurn and we give them weapons in payment. With the UAE and CA, Trump's contracts and long-term contracts are simply scary.

              If you don’t have your own, then you don’t have to complain about the buyer’s claims, because he knows that at any time he can be handed out in the form of sanctions, like the SSG-100 for Iran.
              Forgive me, but to justify the lack of domestic developments in power plants by concluding foreign exchange contracts is some kind of epidemic.

              Maybe someone kicked out of helicopter engineering as unnecessary? Things are quicker and go, and even interest the inventors with something ...
              The positivity in this article is as much as in the model of the promising destroyer Leader - apparently a contract for 140 helicopters - is a tempting thing, but this is when they are not assembled as a designer. After all, a buyer who wants to assemble cars at his factory under a license does not have the desire to negotiate with someone else on the supply of components. You do not buy a car body in one store, and wheels in another? So they are so "nasty" and "finicky" ...
              I want to note that for military equipment of purely Russian production such obstacles do not arise. But in general, for all effective managers, it’s time to learn the rules and methods of concluding contracts: there is a signature - there is a contract, there are winning reports. No signature - go through the forest. There are so many countries in the world who want to buy a worthy and high-quality one that there is always a choice. And it’s just indecent to justify one’s own flaws with a far-fetched buyer. Moreover - a member of the BRICS.

      India delays signing agreement on purchase of 140 helicopters from Russia

      All commonplace - Indians are trading
      The price of the contract for the supply of 200 Russian Ka-226T helicopters to India has not yet been determined, Andrei Boginsky, CEO of Russian Helicopters, said on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum. "Technical negotiations are completed, now it is necessary to complete the commercial and price," he said

        Denmark did not change her mind - they gave permission, or rather, the approval on the last day, which was allowed to make a decision. They simply delayed so that the SP-2 project was not implemented (theoretically) ahead of schedule. If they didn’t give it, then they would have to give a strong justification for the refusal.
        But they are pulling their pipe Baltic Pipe (Norway-Denmark-Poland), the laying of which must give permission .... Gazprom! Because their pipe intersects with Gazprom pipes.

        With the onset of winter, many begin to think through historical examples from Napoleon’s army to Europe (GB in particular, which was suddenly attacked by both cold and the absence of LNG ordered in the USA). Not far off is the time when countries that receive gas by reverse can change their minds.

    Here, they just provided information ... what
    It is recalled that Russian Helicopters promoted its products through Rosoboronexport. In this case, this is an agreement of another interstate level.

        So he is not a combat helicopter. But it is very multifunctional. Its back is modular and can vary depending on functionality. For example, a couple of boxes of shells to throw or pick up a wounded general in the buttock from the battlefield. In general - a cool helicopter.
