Plant them. Mile "inspected" by the Philippine military


At the Russian facilities responsible for the production of rotorcraft, a solid "landing" of the Philippine military was landed, which carefully examined the possibilities available for the production of helicopters in Russia.

- It is noted in the message of the local edition of Mintfo, referring to the statement of the country's ambassador to Russia.

The delegation, led by Assistant Secretary of Defense Josue Gaverza, stayed in Russia from March 3 to 7. The "landing" consisted mainly of Air Force veteran pilots. They, in particular, tested pilot training complexes. Ulan-Ude was not left without attention aviation plant, which, in all likelihood, will be entrusted with the release of equipment. At least, the delegation of the Kazan enterprise bypassed the party.

According to Mintfo, the Philippines plans to purchase "heavy Mi-171 helicopters." It is expected that the first batch of these machines will be transferred to the military by mid-2021. A promising contract will allow Russia to bring its helicopter products to a new market. Now the Philippine military is using the W-3 Sokol; AUH-76; Bell 412EP Twin Huey; Bell 412HP Twin Huey; MD-520MG; S-70A Black Hawk (S-70A-5); AW109E; Bell 205 (UH-1D); Bell 205 (UH-1H Iroquois).

        According to the international classification of helicopters (ICAO), it really belongs to the heavy class, and according to ours to the medium class.

      Compared to what they now have, the MI-171 is really heavy.
      Now the Philippine military is using the W-3 Sokol; AUH-76; Bell 412EP Twin Huey; Bell 412HP Twin Huey; MD-520MG; S-70A Black Hawk (S-70A-5); AW109E; Bell 205 (UH-1D); Bell 205 (UH-1H Iroquois).

        From the diversity of the model range in a small and poor country, it is rippling in the eyes.

          The retirees in the Philippines have nothing to do, so they organized a tour for themselves. One specialist, not a delegation, was enough to assess whether our helicopter industry could satisfy Philippine orders.

      You can, of course, push all the Philippine Armed Forces into one MI-171, only about 170 people, but you will have to transport 000 reservists in a basket on external sling. In the Bundeswehr, 400 troops, including cadets and cadets, are exactly half
