Russian Helicopters will deliver the second batch of Mi-8MTV-5 helicopters to the Belarus Ground Forces in April 2017, the company announced on 22 March.

This final batch of helicopters will be delivered ahead of schedule, bringing to a close the contract for 12 Mi-8MTV-5s on order for Belarus under a contract signed at the Army-2015 International Military Technical Forum. The first six aircraft were delivered in December 2016.

Andrei Boginsky, director general of the Russian Helicopters, said: 'Belarus has always been and remains an important strategic partner for us. We are glad we will be able to finish the contract on delivering 12 helicopters for the Belarusian Defense Ministry ahead of schedule.

'The final lot was initially supposed to be delivered in May 2017, however, the Kazan helicopter factory is ready to send the helicopters on their way in April.'
