Russia to build helicopters for Mistral carriers

Russia will build the experimental version of the Ka-52 helicopter for Mistral helicopter carriers it has bought from France, the official spokesman for the Helicopters of Russia company said on Tuesday.

He did not say how many machines had been commissioned by the Defense Ministry.

Pending the Mistrals’ arrival, the new helicopters will practice takeoff and landing aboard the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier.
