Russia presents a large range of combat and transport helicopters at Paris Air Show 2011.
 
 
Russia has long been considered a leader in helicopter building. Since 1950 65,000 helicopters have been produced in the world overall. Our country has manufactured 26,000 helicopters and exported 6,000 of them. Modern production of Russian helicopter grows annually by 20-30 percent, and according to realistic forecasts by 2015 Russia will come to control up to 15 percent of the world helicopter market.

At Paris Air Show 2011, Russian aviation industry presents a full range of combat and transport helicopters.

Customers show great interest in the Mi-28NE helicopter which is capable of performing assigned missions day and night in any weather conditions. The helicopter is equipped with a new-generation integrated avionics suite. Reliable armour protection of the flight cabin and vital assemblies as well as redundancy of major onboard systems allow the Mi-28NE helicopter to operate with great effectiveness under intensive enemy counteraction. Thanks to the powerful armament the Mi-28NE helicopter can render strong fire support to ground units by engaging enemy armoured materiel and manpower, hardened installations as well as above-water and low-speed aerial targets.

     
The Mi-35M will become one of the world's best multi-purpose combat helicopters in the years to come. More than 1,250 helicopters of this type have been exported to nearly 40 countries for the last 20 years, and this fact testifies to their world popularity.

Versatility is the main feature of the Mi-35M helicopter. Besides combat missions, it can effectively perform assault, transport, medical evacuation, air reconnaissance and other tasks.

In the assault version the helicopter can carry up to eight fully equipped troops, and in the medevac version - four patients (two in seats and two on stretchers) with one medical assistant. In the transport version it can ship cargoes weighing up to 2,400 kg on the external sling suspension, or up to 1,500 kg inside the cargo compartment.

The Mi-35M helicopter performs combat missions with high effectiveness thanks to the powerful weapons arsenal carried on board. It is on a par with the Western counterparts in this respect, but greatly outperforms them in cost effectiveness.

     
The Mi-26T2 is a new modification of the world-famous Mi-26T transport helicopter. This is a heavy-lift helicopter designed to transport troops and cargoes, evacuate casualties and fight fires, as well as mount bulky equipment and erect bridges, electric power transmission lines, oil derricks, and so on. The Mi-26T2 helicopter can carry equipment and bulky cargoes weighing up to 20 tonnes inside its cargo compartment and on the external sling, up to 82 persons in seats or up to 60 casualties on stretchers. It is the world's heaviest-lift transport helicopter whose capabilities are comparable to those of the US C-130 Hercules military transport aircraft.

The Mi-26T2 helicopter features a glass cabin fitted with five multifunctional liquid crystal displays, two control panels and a set of electromechanical backup instruments. Its advanced integrated avionics suite enables day/night operations of the helicopter in fair and restricted weather conditions. This has allowed crew reduction from five to two persons. The crew is complemented with one additional operator for transporting cargoes suspended on the external sling.

     
The Ka-226 light multi-purpose helicopter is designed for carrying out day and night reconnaissance/surveillance, artillery fire adjustment, target acquisition/designation in cooperation with attack helicopters, transportation of rapid deployment forces and cargoes, evacuation of wounded personnel, air patrolling, and column escorting missions.

The Ka-226T helicopter co-axial rotor system provides advanced flight characteristics and gives an edge over other helicopters, especially when flying in highland areas. Small-diameter main rotors and high-rated power plant enable the helicopter to fly effective missions even in confined spaces.

The helicopter features a modular design allowing its fast retrofit to specific missions. It takes 20-30 minutes at the most for two persons to replace modules in field/aerodrome conditions.

The Ka-226T helicopter is a simple air platform designed for convenient and comfortable transportation of cargoes and passengers. It is flown by one pilot, and there is one workplace onboard provided for second pilot.
