At the end of September, after several years of “tough” talks, the Ministry of Defense of India finally signed an agreement with the US government and Boeing to purchase 22 helicopters AH-64E Apache Guardian and 15 CH-47F Chinook helicopters.

"The contracts were signed under a complex" mixed "scheme involving the purchase of AN-64E combat helicopters directly from Boeing Corporation through the" Direct Commercial Sales "(DCS), and weapons, equipment, spare parts and property to them Government under the agreements in the area of ​​Foreign Military Sales (FMS) ", - writes the publication.

        The multi-vector tenacity. Hindus are always traded to the last. Like the Chinese. If the Americans from the custodians do not take an example, they will receive their helicopters. Raising the price after signing a contract for Western companies is not a problem.

        "The reasons for the abandonment of the Mi-28 helicopter were of a technical nature. According to our experts, the Mi-28N does not meet the requirements of the tender on 20 points, unlike the Apache helicopter, which showed the best performance," RIA Novosti quotes the words of its interlocutor from arms procurement commissions.

        A colleague said that when a pair of “crocodiles” mistakenly attacked a convoy of them in Tajikistan (the 90 case was), he already thought that they were dead. The gorge, nowhere to run, fortunately the senior column managed to get through communication to the command, but the turntables did not go on the offensive, but from the turn. It turned out that someone mixed up and gave a tip that the militants were marching, not a mixed convoy of our troops. It was very unpleasant, he says, and it’s immediately clear that the flyers see through the entire column, you’ll hide the hell.

          In 2001, a couple of such MI-24s treated us with lead and iron, then I almost regretted that without diapers
          The feeling is not pleasant. It’s good that they didn’t have any guns left on the way back. Well, this was enough for pleasure, it’s good that no one was hurt. It turned out that the gunners from the Airborne Forces were turning the turntables on us so hotly we wanted these eyes to stick out our eyes too and tried to turn off the attack when our radio operator covered them with a three-story colorful mat so the guys turned right away then the radio operator began to swear in Tatar in Russian. laughing

          Yeah, in Afghanistan, getting into friendly fire in local operations is a trifling matter. And I remember how from the ridge we watched the battle at Khost. The kishlak stormed with a tsaranda, but they were pressed by machine-gun fire along the road, they could not rise. And our turntables flew in, we huddled in stones, were afraid to move, and watched a movie. What kind of movie is there, this can only be dreamed of. Then they lay until dark, hell knows who they have there on target designation, and to us from the path neither to the right nor to the left, only up. Tweet that a group of bearded on the move and damn it. Crocodiles sometimes returned to bases with such damage that they were given a diva. Which Ah can stand such?

      Well, if you wanted to take the best, then why should they use the Mi-28? Helicopters are approximately equal in capabilities and characteristics, but:
      1) On the Mi-28N, more than 70% of the electrical components were developed 20 or more years ago.
      2) There are no radars on the Mi-28
      3) Mi-28 gun is less accurate than Apache
      4) The American helicopter has a large specific power
      5) Experience in combat use
      By the way, the Mi-28 is losing tenders for the first time ...

      Mi-28NE - they were not satisfied with a bunch of points, starting from the fact that there is no dual control, ending with the lack of examples of the use of a bunch of radar + guided missile. At the time of the tender. Moreover, they take Apache from the most advanced radar station (even better than that of staffers in units) - there are application methods, application history and well-proven Helfaires. Unlike the Attack, which with a creak goes to the sky and the promised new-old Whirlwind since 2013 of the year.

      Chinook seems to be better in the mountains than Mi-26T. Plus, Mi-26Т2 loading may have also affected, since Algeria has staked out a place before.

They will produce pylons and stern cargo ramps for Chinook helicopters. One such enterprise will be Dynamatics Technologies in Bangalore.


      If you will, a little from myself. Currently, the basic principle of purchasing high-tech products is technology transfer. This is the main problem of our manufacturers. (Now I will call a flurry of criticism). How not cool We are in certain areas of engineering, we are dependent on those technologies that we could not develop in the USSR. The same software, and to a greater extent the manufacture of software elements. To some extent, we are losing on the arms market because of this.
      Immediately I want to warn the “Uri-patriots”, I’m not going to belittle our “mechanical engineering” in any way, but we have unique developments, some mass-produced, which have no analogues in the world. But to be honest, unfortunately, EACH of them contains elements that are not produced in our country.

      This is my opinion, which does not set out to humiliate the ouri patriots! hi But still, can develop their own, and not DAM's and others like them? winked winked winked hi

          On a budget, India is ahead of the Russian Federation, and the state of the economy in India is better. As for the badges with China, their last conflict was conditionally a military draw, China even had a bigger ogreb. In fact, they have equal opportunities, two large armies, comparable human resources, both countries are rich, both are actively rearming.

    Well, weird then. Initially, it stands "Whirlwind". Now they mount the “Attack”. The latter has fresh aircraft-based modifications that have a combat range of up to 10 km.

    Exactly the same as from the same ancient fusi, the same Pakistanis could knock down our MI-28. This is not an argument. Such arguments do except in toddlers in a children's sandbox.

    It's just that many writers have a feeling of resentment. How is it, they did not buy from us, but bought from the Americans. So there were reasons. As someone wrote above, for some points MI-28 did not satisfy the conditions of the tender.

    It’s worth forgetting the times when "by friendship" neighbors took only from us. And in recent years, we often become not very reliable suppliers. Remember the MIG contract for Algeria when rusted parts were found in EMNIP machines. Plus, we do not always execute contracts on time (for the same aircraft carrier). And the buyer pays attention to everything.

    If you, for example, buy a cool car, and in one salon you are told that everything is fine, everything is fine, we will give you a discount, but there are two small roughnesses. You will receive the car only after 2 months and every time you will need to do it in Moscow. And you live, for example, in the Stavropol Territory or Krasnodar.
    In another salon, you will be offered a slightly less cool car, but there are no discounts such as in the first salon, they are less, but you will receive the car immediately after payment. And then here in the sales center will be held. What do you choose? The first or second option. And so are the Indians. Most likely we did not offer them conditions such as the Americans. For production, and for service, for sure
