    China Helicopter Import

    China will import another 24 Mi171 from Russia, so the total inventory of Mi17 should excess 200 by now.

    汉和:中国陆军进口新一批直升机

    最新一期加拿大汉和防务评论最新报道声称在中国陆航(陆军航空兵)成立20年之际,中国陆军决 定在2006 年再进口24架Mi171型直升机。所有直升机计划在今年交付。这一次进口的Mi171由俄U lan-Ud e飞机公司生产。俄方消息来源对汉和评论声称今年一月进行的投标过程中Ulan-Ude以70 万美元的价格差战胜了同时投标的 Kazan飞机公司。但是并未在一月签署正式的合同。



    目前已经有超过200架Mi17系列服役于中国陆军。它们主要用于运输、对地火力支援。部分M i17安装了 中国生产的对地攻击火箭。中方还在试验使用Mi17挂载TY90 空对空导弹的可能性。



    汉和评论总编辑平可夫中国声称陆军之所以试验Mi17携带TY90的构想主要是作为过渡,陆军 需要一种能够 在不同地域实施火力支援、空战的直升机。Z9G的局限性在于它似乎不适合于在青藏高原进行的直 升机作战需要 。



    今年是中国陆航建设的关键之年。20年的庆祝日子在中国文化中意味着很重要的意义。因此军事工 业界的消息来 源声称陆军计划为更多的集团军组建陆航团。目前陆航团的建设数量依然远远不够,就连位于福建前 线的第31集 团军的陆航团建设也才刚刚起步。主要还是直升机的生产数量不够。消息来源声称他们计划在201 6 年之前,即陆航成立30年之际,为每一个集团军都配备一个陆航团。目前的方案是每年为一个陆军 集团军装备一 个陆航团。主要的问题是陆军建设的经费严重不足。(Yuri Baskov专电、平可夫追加)

    The Chinese Ministry of Communications (MOC) and Eurocopter have signed a contract for the acquisition of two 10/11 ton class EC 225. These aircrafts, the most up-to-date helicopters in their category, will be operated by the Rescue and Salvage Bureau to ensure Search and Rescue missions.

    Present at the China Police 2006 Exhibition, Mr. Norbert Ducrot, Eurocopter Executive Vice President proudly declared:" They will be fully operational by end 2007, joining the reknown MOC helicopter fleet, ready to bring an outstanding contribution in the frame of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games."

    The EC 225, the latest addition to the Super Puma family of twin-engine aircraft in the 10/11ton class performed its maiden flight in November 2000.

    This versatile helicopter has been developed to perform a variety of missions such as Search And Rescue (SAR), police and anti-terrorism as well as Offshore and VIP transportation.

    In July 2004, the EC 225 satisfied the most recent JAR 29 regulations, and was awarded its IFR certificate of airworthiness by the new European airworthiness authority EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).

    The EC 225 new technologies have improved performance (speed, maneuverability), comfort (vibration, noise) and flight safety Ė a quality that is particularly appreciated by the crews who have flown the helicopter.

    More than 40 aircraft from the EC 225 family have already been ordered and the total number of orders for the Super Puma/ EC 225 family has increased to almost 700.

    Letís note that 21 Super Pumas are flying nowadays in China.

    Eurocopter foresees a large development in the 10/11 ton segment in China. Thanks to its high transportation capabilities, the EC 225 is able to perform complex missions in a severe and vast environment.

    Today Eurocopter is the front runner in the Chinese market with a 45% share in the civil and parapublic helicopter sector. Between now and 2015, it is predicted that China will need about 300 helicopters. The needs are huge to ensure surveillance, security, medical assistance, emergency medical evacuation, TV broadcasts, VIP transport, and other utility missions. Eurocopter, on account of its long and fruitful cooperation with China, wishes to further accompany the development of the Chinese industry in the helicopter area and reinforce this privileged partnership.
    Can someone please provide some information about types and number of helicopters currently used for that role in China?
    Also Eurocopter offered China EC135 & EC155 helicopters for security and surveillance requirements.

    As far as I knew this is a new order, the article did mentioned that Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant outcompete Kazan by offering 700 thousands dollars less. And this is another batch of Mi171 that should fullfill by the end of the year, it also said the order was conclude in Jan 06 but contract was not signed until later.
