    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Ulan-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Mi17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)

    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.

    Do you know is this new deal or one signed in late 2005? I ask because they both state 24 helicopters from Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant.

    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.
