"Helicopters of Russia" will show the new items at the Aero India 2013 exhibition in Bangalore
Russian Helicopters Holding, a subsidiary of the defense industrial complex Oboronprom, which is part of Rostec Corporation, will take part in the Aero India 2013 exhibition, which will be held from 6 to 10 in February in Bangalore.
As the press service of OJSC Helicopters of Russia reported, the holding will show visitors of the exhibition new multi-purpose helicopters of the light and middle classes, primarily Ka-226T and Mi-171А2, which in the coming years can become the main Russian products in the actively growing helicopter market of India.
The lightweight Ka-226T with a unique coaxial rotor scheme participates in a tender for the supply of Indian air forces to a large batch of observation and reconnaissance helicopters and has high chances of winning. In December 2012, Russian Helicopters and Elcom Systems signed an agreement in New Delhi to establish a joint venture for the assembly of Russian helicopters in India, including the Ka-226T.
Another interesting novelty of the exhibition in Bangalore will be the modernized mid-range helicopter Mi-171А2, which incorporates the best characteristics of the Mi-8 / 17 and complements them with the latest technologies. Today, the Russian fleet of Mi-8 / 17 Russian-made helicopters exceeds 200 units, and the need for helicopters of this type is preserved.
“Helicopters of Russia” deliver under the contract of Rosoboronexport OJSC to the Indian Air Force Mi-17В-5 helicopters; the next installment was delivered in December 2012 of the year, it is planned to complete the execution of the contract in 2013 year.
Together with Rosoboronexport OJSC, Russian Helicopters will demonstrate the Mi-2013NE Night Hunter attack helicopter at Aero India 28. This combat helicopter with unique characteristics is designed to search and destroy day and night in simple and difficult weather conditions tanks, armored and unarmored vehicles, as well as manpower on the battlefield and low-speed air targets.
At the Russian Helicopters stand, visitors will also see promising Russian helicopter projects, including the lightweight multi-purpose Ansat, which is currently being tested with a new hydromechanical control system, an average Ka-62, presented to the international commercial market at last year's Farnborough air show, and other helicopters.
