Rostec subsidiary Rosoboronexport will be showcasing Russian military helicopters with upgraded engines and electronics at the 16th international Helicopter Industry Exhibition (HeliRussia 2023).

HeliRussia will be held from May 18 to 20 at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center in Moscow.

“Many helicopters have received new Russian-made powerplants, state-of-the-art air weapons, communication systems and defensive aids systems, which have shown high performance and reliability,” Alexander Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport.

He said Russian helicopter industry “works unceasingly, upgrading them based on the experience of their operation, including in combat conditions.”

Rosoboronexport will take part in HeliRussia 2023 within a joint exhibit of Rostec subsidiaries. At its booth, the company will showcase the Ka-52 scout/attack helicopter, the Mi-17V-5 military transport helicopter and the Mi-35M transport/attack helicopter. In addition, the exhibition guests will be presented with upgraded versions of the Mi-28NE attack helicopter, Mi-171Sh military transport helicopter, Ka-226T light utility helicopter, as well as the Mi-26T2V heavy-lift military transport helicopter.

Rosoboronexport is ready to hold presentations of the items on display, including with the involvement of their developers and manufacturers.

MI and KA series have replaced Ukrainian engine with russian one and KA-226T has replaced Turbomeca engine with Russian one. Lots of background articles are there.

Russia has replaced several Ukraine-manufactured power plants in its helicopters with home-grown ones. For instance, PD-12V turboshafts will replace Mi-26’s Ukraine-made Motor Sich D-136 turboshaft engines. UEC-Klimov VK-650V will power future KA-226T multirole helicopters, not Safran Arrius 2G1.
