"Over 900 helicopters made by Russian Helicopters' enterprises are registered in African countries,” said director general of Russian Helicopters holding company Andrey Boginsky.
“This is almost one in four helicopters on the continent, and the share of our military rotorcraft is almost 40%. This certainly provides for huge potential for cooperation in servicing, modernizing and renovating the fleet. We also offer our partners civilian helicopters, such as Ansat and Mi-171A2 multipurpose rotorcraft, and a military modernized Mi-35P attack helicopter. This is the evolution of the Mi-24/35 family which proved to be very effective in Africa.”
African countries operate over 250 helicopters of Mi-24/35 type.
