Russia and Egypt to negotiate delivery of Ka-52K helicopters at MAKS-2017

Russia negotiate with Egypt at the MAKS-2017 international airshow for the delivery of Ka-52K helicopters to be used on the Mistral-class carriers, Director of Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugayev said, according to TASS. This comes as the first three Ka-52 helicopters built at Progress Plant were accepted by Egypt, a source in the Russian defense industry told TASS on Tuesday. Egyptian pilots are currently undergoing helicopter training, the source said. It was reported in June that Egypt had reached an agreement to acquire Ka-52K helicopters, instead of the conventional Ka-52 Alligators agreed to in 2015.
