Russia Delivers Two Mi-35M Helicopters to Mali


Rostec, October 03, 2017 - JSC Rosoboronexport (part of the Rostec State Corporation) has completed delivery of the Mi-35M transport/attack helicopters and associated equipment to the Republic of Mali.

“We have shipped two Mi-35 helicopters to Mali as was requested by our Malian partners. The Malian Side has been very grateful to us for meeting its request and has also expressed satisfaction with the quality of equipment. I am confident that the helicopters will help the nation protect its sovereignty and successfully fight the main challenge of the 21st century, namely, terrorism”, - Director General of Rosoboronexport Alexander Mikheev said.

Mi-35M is the world’s only multirole attack helicopter capable of effective fire engagement, transportation of up to 8 fully-equipped troops, munitions or other cargos weighing up to 1,500 kg inside a cargo cabin and up to 2,400 kg with an external sling, evacuation of the injured and delivery of technical personnel to the independent basing areas.

The Mi-35M boasts formidable fire power stemming from its hefty ammunition load and enabling the helicopter to provide air support for ground troops. All-day and all-weather operation, enhanced flight capabilities, including take-offs and landings at concrete and unsurfaced helipods, and successful design solutions allow operating the Russian helicopter within a wide range of geographical and climatic conditions, including mountainous, hot and wet climate. The feature has been verified in the course of the Mi-35M’s successful operation in Syria, Iraq and other hotspots around the world.
