India to buy 48 more Russian Mi-17 military helicopters

Jul. 21, 2015

India plans to buy 48 new Russian-made Mi-17 military helicopters, news agency RIA Novosti reported Tuesday, citing an Indian air force spokesman, in a move that would cement Russia's place as a key supplier of military hardware to India's armed forces.

The comments by the spokesman came after Indian newspaper The Economic Times reported on Monday that the Indian air force would sign a deal with Russia for the delivery of 48 Mi-17V-5 military transport helicopters for USD 1.1 billion.

"The Indian air force really has proposed to purchase an additional 48 Mi-17V-5 helicopters. However, the price and other financial aspects of the proposal cannot be disclosed," Singh Birdi told RIA.

The agency also cited an unidentified Russian defense industry source as saying the contract could be signed next year.


At least six of the new choppers being ordered are replacements for machines that were diverted to the Air HQ Communications Squadron last year for flying the President, Prime Minister and visiting dignitaries.
