The Indian Air Force offered to buy 48 more Mi-17 helicopters for $ 1.1 billion from Russia, Economic Times wrote on Monday.

This proposal contradicts the “Made in India” concept, which is carried out by the government, but the purchase may be necessary for the completion of the country’s air-transport fleet.

According to the newspaper, the Indian Air Force plans to order 48 Mi-17V-5 helicopters. The new helicopters will be used for flights in different areas – both in the desert and in the mountains.
