Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) will be showcasing Russian military helicopters at the 16th international Helicopter Industry Exhibition (HeliRussia 2023), which will be held from May 18 to 20 at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center in Moscow.
“Since its establishment in 2001, Rosoboronexport has delivered over 1,200 helicopters to partners from more than 45 countries. This is an excellent indicator of the reliability and high competitiveness of Russian equipment in the market,” said Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport. “Today, Russian helicopter developers and manufacturers confidently meet the needs of domestic customers and foreign partners, including through military-technical cooperation. Well-proven helicopters undergo upgrades, based on their extensive operating experience. New models are being introduced to the market and will be on display at HeliRussia 2023.”
Rosoboronexport will take part in HeliRussia 2023 within a joint exhibit of Rostec subsidiaries. At its booth, the company will showcase the Ka-52 scout/attack helicopter, the Mi-17V-5 military transport helicopter and the Mi-35M transport/attack helicopter. In addition, the exhibition guests will be presented with upgraded versions of the Mi-28NE attack helicopter, Mi-171Sh military transport helicopter, Ka-226T light utility helicopter, as well as the Mi-26T2V heavy-lift military transport helicopter.
During the show, interested representatives of international customers can get detailed specifications and operational features of the Russian helicopters at Rosoboronexport’s booth. The company is ready to hold presentations of the items on display, including with the involvement of their developers and manufacturers. The Russian special exporter is also willing to discuss issues concerning end product delivery and technology partnership in any mutually beneficial formats, including joint development and production, licensed production, construction of training centers or maintenance and modernization facilities on the customer’s premises.
“Most of the Russian helicopters promoted today by Rosoboronexport are well known in the global market and occupy top positions in their respective segments. At the same time, the Russian helicopter industry works unceasingly, upgrading them based on the experience of their operation, including in combat conditions,” Alexander Mikheev added. “Many helicopters have received new Russian-made powerplants, state-of-the-art air weapons, communication systems and defensive aids systems, which have shown high performance and reliability.”
At the exhibition, more than 100 domestic and overseas companies will display global achievements of the whole range of products and services offered by the helicopter industry, from design and production to operation, maintenance and modernization. HeliRussia demonstrates on its platform the necessity and importance of continuous technology development, the growth of knowledge-intensive production in Russia and the implementation of new R&D projects contributing to the development of a sovereign high-tech state.
Educational institutions (high schools, trade schools, universities) are actively involved in the work of the exhibition, which can help future engineers adopt the experience and manufacturing traditions of the best domestic engineering and design schools.
