Russia is ready to continue deliveries for the Indian naval aviation, if it receives a request from the Indian side, the head of Russia Helicopters said on Tuesday.


“As for the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier, this will undoubtedly be a decision by the Indian side. The holding company (Helicopters of Russia) will be ready to continue its program of Russian helicopter deliveries to India under a contract with Rosoboronexport,” Alexander Mikheyev was quoted as saying by ITAR-TASS.


India has quite a large fleet of Ka-28/Ka-31 helicopters operational in the Indian naval aviation, he said.


“Correspondingly, if the Indian side will opt out for these helicopters in the future, we are ready to meet this request,” he said. “As for Mistral-class helicopter carriers, the Helicopters of Russia holding company is ready for this program (the delivery of helicopters for these warships).”
