Media: Pakistan plans to increase procurement of Mi-35M to 12-minute units

22
Pakistan’s Minister of Military Industry Rana Hussein confirmed the negotiations on the procurement of a new batch of Mi-35М helicopters with the Russian Federation, the French newsletter TTU reported. Article leads military blog bmpd.




“After last August it became known that Pakistan had acquired four Mi-35M helicopters, several local sources made it clear that Islamabad plans to increase purchases to 12 machines,” the newspaper writes.

According to one of the interlocutors, "some of these Mi-35Ms can be transferred to the Special Purpose Group (SSG) of the Pakistan Army."

TTU notes that negotiations on the purchase of Russian cars "are taking place in a cooling of relations between Pakistan and the United States because of the contract for the supply of F-16 fighter jets."

Bmpd recalls that the US Congress refused to provide financial assistance to Pakistan “to pay for the delivery of an additional eight F-16C / D fighters”, demanding that Islamabad pay for the purchase of $ 700 million by itself.

        The more we sell, the more our troops will also receive for rearmament.

        The whole trick is who this unit will serve? Pakistan, at the moment and historically in general, is India’s worst enemy. At VO, forum users often worry with concern:
        "Why does India, our loyal partner and ally in South Asia, keep moving away from Russia and starting to acquire weapons from other manufacturers? Don't members of the forum think that the Indians can also be offended by such behavior of Russia, when for a penny profit the Russian establishment does not take into account the interests partners and sells weapons to the enemy, saying:
        "If we don't sell, they'll buy from someone else."
        Here, forum users often glorify the leadership of the USSR and rightly so, for the sake of a penny profit, they did not jeopardize Soviet-Indian relations, they had brains to look ahead for years, and not the psychology of a marketer who was interested in selling at least something at the moment, and there at least grass does not grow.

          With all due respect to the mi-35,12 machines on a global scale and the parity of the parties do not decide anything, but for "nightmaring" local terror, they will be very useful. You should not worry at all for the "touchiness" of the Indians, their traders are even more savage than ours will not remain without benefits in any case.

              This is called dividing customers by assortment, as far as I remember, the Indians prefer Apache in the helicopter plan, so no one condemned their desires in this regard from Russia, so nothing personal is just business.

      And we mean, as I understand it, agreed to lend to Pakistan? Charming ..... A loan is at least not interest-free?

      Yes, in general, all trade with the Indians is the Pakistan-India-China swing. They buy some, others immediately begin to look for new weapons. If the Indians did not have such neighbors, they would not buy anything from anyone.
      Let them come to us with money, we will help them to compensate for the strengthening of Pakistan.

        With denyuzhkami to Russia, the Indians come less and less and you yourself already understand why they behave this way.

          They buy technology and make it at home, scatter orders among suppliers. In general, China has only started to get new products and is already a competitor rather than a client.

          They do not behave this way at all because Russia sold something to someone. And because they need technology - they themselves want to develop, produce and sell. But with the French, a bummer came out, as with the Americans. Therefore, they are returning to Russia again.
          In addition, there is a strong corruption component. For example, they built the Skorpen submarine, but refused to buy torpedoes for it, because firm. which was supposed to supply them was caught on a bribe. I will not be surprised that the Skorpen lobbyist will appear on the black list after a while. Our bribes do not give. Therefore, the Ministry of Defense of the Indians can be calm about supplies from Russia. In the end, 12 turntables will not spoil the weather on the battlefield with the Indians, but they need to solve issues with aviation, long-range air defense and modernization of tanks. We hold a leading position in the Indian market by total weight. So the Indians are heading in the right direction, another thing is that they cannot go fast yet. Only Russia shares technology and production.
          Do not worry - everything will be fine.

            I write from my cell phone and I can’t write a lot, but as for the corruption component, one unpleasant analogy comes to my mind.
            Over the past 5 years, Russia has sold weapons to Azerbaijan for tens of billions of dollars, and our authorities were silent, for the domestic consumer they created a myth that Russia will not "allow" wassat Azerbaijan to use this weapon against Armenians. As Russia did not allow the use of its weapons against Armenia, our slow-witted people had the opportunity to make sure on April 2-5 this year. When Russian Prime Minister Medvedev flew to Yerevan after this mini-war, our authorities very timidly asked to stop the supply of weapons to Azerbaijan, to which your "great" Rogozin cynically wrote in his Twitter on the same day:
            "We have supplied and will continue to supply."
            Such an interest of the "great" makes any sane person think about the degree of Rogozin's involvement in arms deals with Azerbaijan, to put it simply, he was given a paw, and he is so persistently breaking through this contract. After all this, our government still bows to the Russians. , participates in all the Kremlin's undertakings, as if the blood of Armenian soldiers is not worth a penny. But it cannot go on for so long, my commands, if your country continues to arm Azerbaijan at the same pace, then Armenia, with its thoroughly rotten political and economic system, will tolerate the inevitable military defeat from Azerbaijan, armed by you, and I'm afraid your sixes in Armenia are unlikely to remain in power.

              This is so ... Russia will not allow the use of these weapons against ARMENIA (!).

              Since when is the NKR Armenia? NKR ... or rather the former NKAR of the AzSSR and the areas around it are the lands of the State of Azerbaijan ... Russia recognizes this. And Azerbaijan has every right to eliminate the presence of the armed forces of the neighboring state, which are not there by invitation. is not obliged to intervene in the conflict between NKR and Azerbaijan and restore "order" there at the cost of the lives of its soldiers for the interests of Armenia.

      1) why suddenly MI-24 can not hover over the battlefield ??? there were ATGMs-which demanded it hover for firing.
      2) why hover over the battlefield (now)? It’s better to slip on the shaver (by bombing / shooting) than to get something from the rifleman / RPG. A fixed target on / over the battlefield is now not comme il faut ..

    The helicopter is magnificent. And he really and rightfully deserved fame and demand ... But here personally, Pakistan has never caused (and never will) cause any sympathy for me. So I'm not thrilled with this deal. It would be better if they were sold to a country more loyal to Russia. The same Mongolia for example ...

    Naturally, business is business. As they say, nothing personal. And kag-be money doesn’t smell ... But personally, I have an unpleasant sedimentary deposit from such transactions with similar countries ...

    So far no one has canceled the money, the Saudis are far from us, and here they are selling everything to them. Industry is now busy surviving, not sifting, enemies. The Americans will order - and they will be sold, the money does not smell.
