China buys Russian military helicopters for $1.3bln

23 August, 2012


China has bought Russian Mi-171E helicopters and other military equipment worth $1.3 billion over the last six months, with more purchases to follow.
The equipment was sold by Rosoboronexport, Russia’s state arms exporter. In the coming years the Chinese army plans to buy more Mi-171E helicopters and engines for SU-27/30 fighter planes from Russia, writes Vedomosti Newspaper.

In July China and Russia signed a $600mln deal for 55 Mi-171 helicopters to be delivered by 2014, according to Vyacheslav Dzirkalen, head of Russia’s Federal service for military and technical cooperation

In February China bought 140 AL-31 engines for the SU 27/30 fighter jets, and for its domestically designed fighter planes, worth $700 million.
Russian military exports in 2013 amounted to $13 billion, with 15 percent being exports to China.

Meanwhile US aerospace giant Boeing has scored a $1.4 billion deal to supply India with 22 attack helicopters, beating off competition from the Russian Mi-28N Night Hunter.

The deal will include advanced AN/APG-78 fire control radars for the Apaches as well as Hellfire anti-tank and 245 Stinger anti-aircraft missiles.
India purchased 80 percent of its $12.7 billion in arms from Russia during 2007-2011, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

Over the last five years the US managed to score a string of big-ticket deals.

Hehe {:soso_e113:}...  A little fun and game with our very own forum Russia Czar:

You better not pull out all of those technicians you inked with us, as did the 50's and 60's!

You see, conniving (or back stabbing China) with the Americans to have us yellow ba*dard* checkmated by pulling out all of those technicians in breach of contracts inked between Stalin and Mao as did Khruschev and Brezhnev in the 50's and 60's, is going to cost you Dearly this time around {:soso_e120:}...

Unlike M*ao Dummy who didn't know a thing about International rule of law when he inked the agreement with Stalin for technical asistance from Russia to fire up China's military industrial complex. Hu & gang on the other hand is quite different: This is a group that majors in engineering and education in Moscow. This gang knows the rules of the game. They are sure to sue and drain Russia's bank balance to absolute-zero for breach of contract {:soso_e113:}.

So beware abourt doing same with these choppers my friend...{:soso_e113:}
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
