Helicopters will be showcased at the Russian exhibition at the 5th international Airshow China 2004 in Zhuhai
Helicopters will be showcased at the Russian exhibition at the 5th international Airshow China 2004 in Zhuhai, Alexander Smelyakov, in charge of Rosoboronexport's public relations, told RIA Novosti on Friday. "Armed conflicts in high mountains and deserts in Asia and Africa have demonstrated the special role of helicopters - assault, troop-carrying and reconnaissance alike. This is why export models of the renowned Mil and Kamov helicopters stand out in the Russian exhibition," the interviewee said. The combat helicopters Mi-28NE, Ka-50, Ka-50-2, multipurpose Ka-60, troop-carrier gunships Mi-35, Mi-35P, Mi-35M, assault-transport Mi-17-1V, troop-carrier Mi-171Sh, heavy transport Mi-26, ship-based combat transport Ka-29, radar picket Ka-31 will be on show in Zhuhai. "Specialists and visitors will certainly take interest in the heavy transport helicopter Mi-26. It is designed for securing the maneuvering of troops with military machines, carrying batches of cargoes weighing up to 20 tons [the troop-carrying model carries up to 82 airborne troops]," Mr. Smelyakov said. He recalled that the Mi-26 is in service in many countries, such as Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Papua-New Guinea, Mexico, Peru, Somalia. He also spoke of the Mi-35M troop-carrier gunship, jointly promoted by Rosoboronexport and OAO Rostvertol. This machine is the thoroughly updated version of the renowned Mi-35 troop-carrier gunship. "Equipped with modern avionics, systems of precision navigation and night vision, the Mi-35M features much broader combat capacity - fulfilling combat missions and delivering fire round-the-clock and in any weather," Mr. Smelyakov noted. Unlike in the past years, the Rosoboronexport exhibition will showcase air defense armaments and military hardware from the portable Igla to the superlong-range S-300. "Our exhibition presents a broad range of products of the Russian defense-industrial complex - warplane and helicopter engines, modern aircraft-based air-to-air missiles, on-board radars, range-finding radar systems, different warship and helicopter on-board equipment, means of surface laboratory avionics, systems for collecting, processing and analyzing in-flight information," Mr. Smelyakov said
