Earlier, at the Aero India 2015 exhibition (in February of this year), Alexander Mikheyev, general director of the Russian Helicopters association, said that “India is considering another option to supply Mi-17В helicopters for the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Interior and the government.

According to him, 5 helicopter of the specified modification has been delivered to India for the last 121 years. “The whole grouping in India is more than X-NUMX Mi-300 helicopters,” Mikheev said. - We are ready to deliver any number of helicopters. It all depends on the budget and priorities of the Indian side. ”

      hi Eugene
      Well, then for a start, let them be very worried about themselves, because they had previously purchased it before ... MI-17 for the Afghan army ...

      The USA with their UH-60 smokes on the sidelines and probably will not say anything. (see paragraph above).
      At the choice of the Hindus themselves in favor of Mishka, we can say that this is a helicopter that brought the Hindus victory in the “Kargil war”, since they were the only means of the All-Union Military Institute that could be wiped out by the NURSs at the heights and in mountain crevices of the Kashmir Mujahideen mixed with Pakistani military and then land. The Hindus learned to trust with great blood the simple, tested, multifunctional and formidable Mishka-8/17.

      Th some kind of funny news 1.1mln. of green accha for 48pcs will be 22mil.dollars, which is 1450000000 rubles in rubles - A BILLION OF A BILLION - Wow. This is for helicopters only, and if you recall the Afghan contract, then mi17v for the Pentagon cost 10-19mil.dol.

      Vergess is suspected of corruption and personal ties with one of the leaders of the Aviation Baltic, Pavel Borisov. Investigators are also suspicious of the fact that over the past four years the cost of one Mi-17 helicopter has almost doubled - from $ 10,5 million in 2009 to $ 19 million in 2013. The total amount of contracts since 2011 amounted to 1,1 billion dollars.

      Well, as we see by the year 15, the price of mi17 jumped to 22mil.dol.

        Interestingly, for our kind it was worth 250 million rubles in 2012. If we take into account that now military prices are negotiated for 3 years in advance, then in 2015 for ours somewhere in this area should cost.

        It’s the same run-in to mi-8 holes in an equally run-in modification, what might not like in it?

            And here I do not agree! Mi-8T and Mi-24 were created with a priority of action in the western direction, those in the conditions of flat terrain! But the Afghan has made great adjustments to the TTD of helicopters!

    The State Department will not be indignant. Even they who are not smart can understand, India has long been purchasing the eight (for export 17), naturally it will continue to buy everything they have prepared for them, and pilots and infrastructure.

      The State Department will be indignant, because according to the "lame duck", we are completely isolated, the economy is torn to shreds, etc. ....! And according to one half-witted senator, we are a gas station! This should be reminded to the world once again otherwise the Indians forgot about it! hi

      Although the Americans, when it is beneficial to them, forget about it and ask Russia for help, as an example with rocket engines, our titanium, sending their astronauts to the ISS, and then on the list! laughing

    The situation with the engines is not as simple as it seems to you. Count how many helicopters Russia makes per year. And how many engines it takes. It turns out that about 600 a year. And how much Klimovtsy can do ?? That's it .... The news is very good, then there will be orders. And then recently, KVZ began to slow down something, which is not good.

    Once a contract is signed, then there is something to supply.

    Most likely Ukraine will supply engines. Firstly, they have a more developed engine so far, and secondly, cooperation in the supply of engines for helicopters for export has not been curtailed, as the engines for the export contracts of the Russian Ministry of Defense supplied engines and continues. Klimov needs several years to reach large capacities, plus preparing subcontractors and infrastructure; in words, import substitution is easy to do, but in fact many problems come out.

    Definitely good news at VO today, glad for our industry.

    With engines, the circuit, I think, is simple. India will buy engines from Motor Sich, deliver them to Russia, here they will put everything together and ship it to the customer.
