Brazil plans to buy a new batch of helicopters in Russia

Earlier, the Russian Federation delivered the Mi-12 helicopters to the Brazilian Defense Ministry 35.

“There is such an interest (Brazil has to Russian helicopters), and we are ready to offer the Brazilian side both combat and transport helicopters, such as the Mi-26Т2, which have no analogues in terms of payload,” said the head of the delegation.

According to him, "the main issue now is the creation in Brazil of the after-sales service system for Russian helicopters."

“After that, we are sure, additional prospects will appear for further expansion of cooperation on this topic,” Ladygin said.

Opened on Tuesday in Santiago, the aerospace show will run until April 3.

    Good news. India is going to produce KA-226T with us. Good money. Brazil is going to purchase with service. Good money too.
    Have you noticed? Whatever topic we talk about military equipment for sale, everywhere the question of thieves pops up first: "No matter how money is stolen ...". In Venezuela, on the construction of a plant for the manufacture of AK-103, 1 lard rested. Construction has been suspended. It is written in the next article.
    Perhaps it is time for the NKVD to revive. So as not to talk with the thieves, but immediately ... In short, there was no thought of theft.

      The conquest of markets is a good thing, because it is not only direct income, but also training and service.

        And to ensure the safety of the Mi-26 flights and ensure their reliable operation, I INSIST at a base in Brazil. And then these Mexican drug lords are so unpredictable.
        For starters - Su-35, C-400 and Shell. Yes, Su-34 about a dozen, let the guys master the southern hemisphere.

      The good news is that the accusations against the Brazilian president will not hurt? And then the carnival in Rio can quietly transform into a Maidan.

        I wouldn’t be very happy about Brazil, they choose a bunch of everything and what the hell they are buying.
        I can recall about the shell and about the choice of fighters.

          I am not happy and not sad, I give a link to an article which says that the creation of these centers is carried out under a contract and not by Wishlist.

    Let them rather buy, because Ulyukaev attracts American specialists to the privatization of state-owned companies, so in a couple of years the execution of the order will be a big question ...

    After the evacuation of the Chinook in Afghanistan, and after the TU-134 was taken out for disposal, everyone wanted this, and now South America has begun to stir, even though daddy forbids it. The main thing is not to give on credit, or only for REAL assets, we do not need to run a rake on a rake. The only exception, I think, are Cubans, these are close to us in spirit, and they are more useful than everyone else in those parts. We ought to RETURN there.

      No, there is something else. Why was Mi-26T not very private? It is extremely expensive to operate - the crew on the 5-6 crew man, the service is complex, the board itself is complex. What about the download? Such a download is needed, but occasionally. That is, it’s so simple to buy and load even from the oil workers of the north of Canada, it didn’t work out where everything was imported only with turntables. Therefore, they went to contracts from the same Uteyra / Vertical.

      Immediately on Т2 - the crew was initially reduced to 2-3, and this sharply reduces the cost of operation. A lot of work has also been done to optimize maintenance processes and reduce their cost.

      As a result, T2 can quite soar in the civilian market.

    Brazil should become one of the MOST major partners of Russia in South America. Something they damn similar to us. In addition to helicopters, AIRCRAFT, TANK, AND OTHER WEAPONS, it is necessary to plant our pines there. And send there the first offspring from Timur and Amur for further breeding. I do not quiver. If the BIG Brazil-Russia project arises, the United States will fart for a long time.

        Here is the concern. NO, NOT I AM A SCARY MINUS DELIVERED, DELIVERED A PLUS !!! From the goat Timur milk flow, what other offspring nafig? Yes, and we need an exchange - they are football players for us, we are hockey players for them = both national teams of the world, with a minimum amount of dust. And pines, the main thing is pines. wassat

      By the way, they took the most homeless version of the Mi-35M of all. Saved on everything. And then they barely found the money to buy out the whole lot.

      However, the Mi-26T2 came out really fit, pulled up the most important thing - performance, 2 crew member (3 with a complex load or working on an external sling) instead of 6 on T. Service work was substantially facilitated and cheapened. And much more. It can take off not only among the military, but also private traders. And Algeria stinted on 14 machines - this is on the 2-3 of the year of loading.

    Sales of military equipment after the Syrian campaign may be unprecedented! Let's see the final result by the end of the year. The shifts are great.

    Well, again, we put the cart in front of the horse.
    Demand is minimal in reality

    12 MI-35 in Brazil, 10 in Venezuela, 2 in Peru.
    A couple of dozen Mi-171.
    All credit and leasing from our own banks at a minimum percentage.

    And the demand about which they write is the interest of the service for delivering workers to work points.
    Jungle or sea towers.
    Moreover, many require helicopters only in the form of iron.
    The entire control system, the entire finish - put ordered on the side or do it yourself.
    It turns out that most of the surplus value remains with them.
