Russia's defense corporation signs contract on helicopter supplies to India
Russia's state-owned defense corporation Oboronprom and India's Vectra Group have signed a $30 million contract on the supply of four Ka-32 Helix helicopters, the Russian company's CEO Andrei Reus said on Monday.
"I signed a contract with the Indian company Vectra on the supply of four Russian Ka-32 helicopters," Reus said.
"Although this is only four aircraft, it is important that it is actually the opening of the Indian market for Russian helicopters," he said.
The Ka-32 can be employed as a transport aircraft, for ice patrol, fire fighting as well as search and rescue operations.
