Russian Helicopters, part of state corporation Rostec, has signed a contract for the repair of four of the Myanmar Air Force's (Tatmadaw Lay's) Mi-24P/35P ('Hind') attack helicopters.
One of the helicopters is set to be repaired in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg, while the three other repairs will be carried out in Myanmar by specialists from the holding company, said Rostec, adding that a further agreement may be reached once the job is successfully completed.
Russia told the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs it exported four attack helicopters to Myanmar in 2010 and another four in 2011.
