India to licence-build Kamov KRA-226TS
During a recent visit to India, Russian Helicopters’ Chief Executive Officer Andrey Boginskiy held talks with Indian defence ministry officials regarding licence manufacture of the Kamov KA-226T in the country. A cooperation agreement between India and Russia was signed in 2015 and a joint venture established in June 2017 for assembly and repair operations. Under the agreement Russia’s Rosoboronexport will supply 200 Ka-226ts, of which at least 140 must be manufactured by a joint venture based in India.
Something of a Russian classic, the KA-226T
