Thailand is looking at ordering a batch of Mi-17V-5 helicopters, TASS said, citing a Russian defense industry source.
“Thailand has previously bought six Mi-17V-5 helicopters manufactured by the Kazan Helicopter Plant,” the source told the news agency. “The negotiations are conducted through Rosoboronexport (Russia’s state-owed arms exporting company). We hope that the negotiations will bear fruit as early as this year.”
Thailand’s Defense Minister Prawit Wongsuwon will visit Russia on Feb. 23-24.
