Nigeria buys helicopters in Russia

As the Nigerian newspaper "The Nation", Nigerian Air Force Chief of Staff Marshal reported on November 30, 2012 aviation Alexander Sabundu Badeh (Alexander Sabundu Badeh) said in the capital Abuja that the Nigerian Air Force ordered nine helicopters in Russia "to strengthen air surveillance" ("to strengthen air surveillance").

The type of helicopters is not reported, but unofficial Nigerian network sources claim that six of the nine helicopters ordered are of the type Mi-171Sh. The other three, according to various assumptions, can be either of the type Mi-35 or Mi-17B-5.

The Nigerian Air Force last acquired helicopters in Russia in 1999, when Nigerians were contracted to purchase six Mi-35P combat helicopters (delivered in 2000, flight numbers NAF-530 - NAF-535) and nine light Mi-34C helicopters (were delivered in 2001-2002, on-board numbers NAF-550 - NAF-558). The implementation of this contract had scandalous consequences, because, as it turned out, instead of Mi-35P helicopters agreed to by the contract, Nigeria’s used Mi-24P machines after the overhaul were supplied, and the gear of the Mi-34C helicopters delivered to Nigerians was no more than 300 hours As a result, all of the Mi-34Cs were pulled to jokes after at most three years of operation.

    I'm back ... all packed to capacity
    I brought them all to the base. All at once.
    Though it’s hard for me at the heights,
    I took all living 300x, three 200x.

    I took them to the eyeballs
    In bloody bandages. Next, a fairy tale!
    That the engine did not choke
    That I miraculously dodged. I returned!

    To know my fate is this: I’ve been flying in the mountains for 30 years ...
    I'm tired, probably this is my autumn.
    I don’t participate in parades, what should I think of the awards,
    To the limit, to wear ... I - Mi-8.


    I'm back ... Who would command me freely?
    I grabbed pretty bullets. Oh, how painful.
    On the right, the blister was smashed to me.
    Pravak wasn’t even killed. Hooked ...

    The captain in the left cup swore
    It was hard. We are in shirts!
    I’m probably born with him
    Because they did not break. They returned.

    To know my fate is this: I’ve been flying in the mountains for 30 years ...
    I'm tired, probably this is my autumn.
    For me, they are looking for spare parts, it will be a pity if they write off.
    I'm old on wear. I am Mi-8.


    I’ve returned ... And in the salon they inherited,
    Red spots froze. Hose washed away.
    Around midnight I woke up
    The captain returned to me, dragged on.

    He pressed my palm to the board,
    And his palm was trembling, so tired.
    He said that everything was in order
    He stroked my patches with his hand ... and cried.


    Here is my fate: I’ve been flying in the mountains for 30 years.
    I'm tired, probably this is my autumn.
    Though hard work, hunting is still a fly.
    Let it wear me in wars. I am Mi-8.


    Well, I just like the song.

      They buy by taking loans for purchase from us. And then we write off these loans. So why are you happy?

        I also think, for what shish they buy them? These 9 turntables are probably Nigeria’s annual budget for 20 years.

            Probably something like this:
            Nigeria Air Force kite crashes today. Nigeria now has no Air Force. In connection with the disaster, the Minister of Defense of Nigeria shot himself. Now in Nigeria there is no ammunition.

          In Nigeria, in addition to bananas, there is oil. Here and money. I am amazed by the childish naivete of the Nigerians. Once they’ve got rid of it, and they’re like a drum: serve 9 more boards.

        Well, how small you are. Previously, the Soviet Union gave for communist beliefs and markets, but now
        Proven oil reserves, according to various sources, are estimated from 25 billion to 36 billion barrels.

        This is, as they say, not casual.

    Nigeria's GDP exceeds the GDP of the following countries - Sweden, Belgium, Venezuela, Ukraine, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Israel, Kazakhstan, etc. The idea of ​​it as a banana republic, to put it mildly, is very wrong. Its population is larger than the population of the Russian Federation
