Afghanistan No Longer Needs Russian-made Helicopters
November 13, 2017 22:38

Afghanistan no longer needs Russian-made helicopters. This was reported by the acting Minister of Defense of the country, Tarik Shah Bahrami.

"Nowdays we get helicopters produced by NATO countries, we no longer need Russian helicopters," he said. According to Bahrami, Afghanistan still needs maintenance to operate the Russian machines that are in operation, since the transition to NATO technology has not completed yet. Currently, these services are provided by the Eastern European member countries of NATO, which continue to use Soviet-made helicopters.

According to open data, the National Air Corps of Afghanistan has 11 Mi-35 strike helicopters (the name of the export version of Mi-24V, the most massive version of this type of machine) and 82 multipurpose Mi-17s, 30 of which were delivered by Russia under a contract with the United States. In the future, it is planned to transfer the Afghan militaries to American Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk.
