    Now the helicopters are fully ready for shipment to India, where they are already awaited by NARZ specialists. There they will again pick up the helicopters, bring them to a flying state and give it to the Indian side.

    In total, the capacity of the Novosibirsk aircraft repair plant will be repaired 30 Indian Mi-17-1B helicopters. Repair is broken into lots: only six batches - five cars each.

    The delivery of helicopters is carried out by the Volga-Dnepr Airlines on An-124 Ruslan planes.

Under a separate contract with the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Promexport", small arms and missiles were purchased by the Indian side for these helicopters. Another five Mi-17-1B helicopters were received by India from KHZ under an additional agreement in 2004.

    Ka-226 is required. It's a twin engine while the LUH is single engine. The principle reason why the navy has decided to go for imports for this class instead of LUH.
