Post India gets final batch of Mi-17V-5 copters

Russia has handed over to India the final batch of three Mi-17V-5 military transport helicopters under a previously signed contract even as it gets ready to ink yet another deal for another 48 such helicopters.
The contract with Rosoboronexport, a company of Rostec State Corporation, entailed a total of 151 units of the Mi-17V-5 helicopter, produced by the Kazan Helicopter Plant, part of Russian Helicopters company.
“India is one of the key markets for Russian helicopters and the largest operator of Russian helicopters in southeast Asia. Today, more than 400 vehicles are operating in the country,” said General Director of the holding company Russian Helicopters Alexander Mikheyev.
Mi-17V-5, supplied to India, are among the most technically advanced helicopters of the Mi-8/17 type. Each Indian Mi-17V-5 has a complex navigation and electronic display KNEI-8.
