Russia and India could set up a joint venture to produce
Russia and India could set up a joint venture to produce medium-lift military transport planes in the next two or three months, the United Aircraft Corporation chief executive said on Thursday.

"It will take a couple of months, some two or three months, to form a joint venture," Alexei Fyodorov said.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), based in Bangalore, is expected to be the Indian partner in the project. The Russian partner "will be a company from a United Aircraft Corporation cargo-carrying division," Fyodorov said.

The planes will be based on the Ilyushin aircraft. The project is evaluated at $600 million, with Russia and India to invest $300 million each. Russia is relying on the planes to replace its ageing medium-lift category fleet.

India and Russia plan to contract 45 and 100 such planes, respectively, Fyodorov said.

The countries signed an intergovernmental agreement on the joint development of planes of this category for Russia and India's air forces in late 2007.
