Rostec Begins Export Deliveries With Mi-28NE
Rosoboronexport, a Rostec State Corp. subsidiary, said it will expand its export deliveries for its range of helicopters. It has delivered more than 100 helicopters abroad in 2015, with the Mi-8/17 accounting for most. The company's head of the air force dept., Sergey Kornev, explained Russia delivered the first exports of the Mi-26T2 heavy-lift transport helicopters last year. He added that this year, another customer will receive the dual-control Mi-28NE attack helicopter. Ka-52 attack helicopter deliveries are expected to come soon, he said.
