Russia Delivers Mi-171E Helicopter to Pakistan

Pakistan has received Russian convertible Mi-171E helicopter, which can assist for missions in passenger and freight carriage or in medical, search and rescue operations.

Russian Helicopters has delivered Mi-171E helicopter in a convertible option to representatives of Pakistan’s Baluchistan Province.

The convertible Mi-171E will help to accomplish any missions, whether in passenger and freight carriage or in medical, search and rescue operations, Chief Executive Officer of Russian Helicopters Andrei Boginsky was quoted as saying in TASS Friday.

This is already the second Mi-171E helicopter delivered to Pakistan this year. Russian Helicopters made the helicopter supply contract with the government of Baluchistan Province in December 2016.

The helicopter was built in the convertible option. The helicopter cabin can be converted from a freight one to a VIP cabin with 13 seats and a flight attendant at customer’s option within the short period.

Mi-171E can carry up to 27 passengers and up to four tonnes of cargo inside the cabin or on the external suspension in its transport version.

Three points for direct deployment provide quick landing of paratroopers and rescuers when the helicopter is hovering.
