Russia and Saudi Arabia are finalizing negotiations on acquisition of 30 Mi 171B helicopters by the Arabian side.
      The Mi-171 is an export version of the Mi-8 Hip multipurpose helicopter. Currently in production at two factories in the cities of Kazan and Ulan-Ude, it features more powerful turbo-shaft engines and can carry up to 37 passengers.
      Earlier Saudi Arabia preferred to buy civil and military equipment from the western partners, the USA in particular. In July several media sources reported Russia and Saudi Arabia were in talks on purchase of S-400 air defense systems.
      The parties are now in a final stage of talks and hope to sign the agreement in September.
