"Russian Helicopters Group is planning to sign a contract with India before the end of 2016 to overhaul three Mi-26 rotorcraft," he added.

According to the group’s press office, India’s Defense Ministry and Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport signed a contract in late July for the repair and upgrade of ten Indian Navy Kamov Ka-28 (Helix) antisubmarine warfare helicopters.

The helicopters will be repaired at the Aircraft-Manufacturing Enterprise in Kumertau in the Urals.
