China placed a new order with JSC Russian Helicopters for additional rotorcraft, the aerospace group Rostec said in its newly released annual report.
According to the company’s annual report, earlier in 2019, JSC Russian Helicopters, a Rostec subsidiary, signed a record contract for the supply of new helicopters to China. The contract covers 121 new aircraft.
Within the contract, awarded from the Chinese government and private structures, the company will supply 68 Mi-171 helicopters (including upgraded Mi-171E), 18 Mi-171Sh helicopters (military transport), 14 Mi-171 helicopters with a VK-2500 engine, 21 Ansat helicopters.


A large part of ordered helicopters is intended for the needs of the People’s Liberation Army.

It is worth mentioning that the first Chinese Mi-171SH hecliopters were spotted in the report of the Chinese TV channel Phoenix news on the activities of the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant.

again, it's russian report; I really do NOT credit :disagree::disagree::disagree:
russia is always trying to sell weapons to others;
and we have our own outstanding helicopters Z8/18/20;
and we NO longer need russian helicopters Mi 8/17/171
if so, it's probably another fake deal :agree::agree::agree:
just be await; let see if they really come to china

Probably political, to reinforce economic/military ties.
my friend, please note that we NEVER tie with russia in economy and military; we do NOT credit russia; only political relationship between China and Russia; also only economic relationship between China and US
China should try to it’s hands on either Blue Thunder or Airwolf
you first should get off China

A good deal since these Russian helicopters are extremely cheap and offer immediate improvement in ground transport abilities

A CCTV Chinese reporter and ensign on the helo. How can it be faked?

The problem is how much is the deal? If the price is good for each pieces of gurantee of quality control. Why not?

chinese helicopters are cheaper with better quality control while russian helicopters are also cheap but more often require costly overhauls; and russian helicopters globally crash the most;
beast, please note that even chinese state media CCTV has reported ongoing fake deals;
again, be await; we all know later

We must support Russia economically.Russia cannot support industries as large as those of the Soviet Union, so China needs to help Russia retain some industries that are still competitive.

Not buying helicopters also has to be balanced against other trade.The problem is Russia's future plans. Oil and arms are not forever.
