Uzbekistan has signed a contract to purchase 10 Russian-built Mi-35 helicopters, deputy head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Vladimir Drozhzhov told TASS at the ArmHiTec exhibition on Thursday.
"We’ve got a delivery contract for Mi-35 helicopters signed in accordance with the agreements. The work is successful, and military-technical cooperation with Uzbekistan is actively developing," he said.
The Mi-35M is a multi-role combat helicopter built to destroy ground-based armored targets and provide air support for ground missions, as well as transport military staff, evacuate the injured, deliver cargoes and perform other tasks. The helicopter is outfitted with modern high-precision weapons and is capable of performing combat tasks on a round-the-clock basis under various weather conditions.
