Peru gets R-312ATs radios

14th October 2016 - 10:30 by the Shephard News Team

Rosoboronexport, the state intermediary agency for Russia's defence exports, has made the delivery of R-312ATs radios to Peru, the company announced on 10 October.

The radios will meet the needs of the Peruvian Army's communications service. The R-312ATs radios feature GPS receivers and are fully compatible with those used by the Peruvian armed forces, including the Selex  SSR-400. They are certified for secure communications between Russian helicopters and ground units. 

The transfer of the radio equipment comes under the framework of the Industrial and Social Compensation Program-Offset Agreement, which is part of a deal to acquire 24 Mi-171Sh transport helicopters. If the eight offset projects agreed with the ministry in July 2015 are implemented, Russia will be ready to allocate about $1 million for the construction of a helicopter training centre.
