MOSCOW , December 30. /TASS/. Russia has signed an agreement with Egypt for delivery of forty-six helicopters of the Ka-52 Alligator family, the Director General of the JSC Russian Helicopters holding company, Alexander Mikheyev, said on Wednesday.
"In this knotty situation, we've managed to keep up the financial parameters reached previously and to broaden the presence of Russian helicopter technologies in the world market," he said. "For instance, a large agreement for delivery of forty-six Ka-52 Alligator helicopters has been signed with Egypt through [the state weaponry trading company] Rosoboronexport."
In the summer, a source in the military diplomatic milieu told TASS Egypt had commissioned Ka-52 helicopters to Russia. Another source said several months later the case in hand was 50 helicopters and the handover of the sea-based version of the Ka-52 developed and built for deployment aboard the Mistral class helicopter carriers built in France upon an order from the Russian Navy.
