More Hips for Belarus

Belarus and Russian Helicopters have signed an agreement for the delivery of twelve Mi-8 MTV-5 Hip helicopters, as announced this week by Russian Helicopters. Belarus is set to receive the choppers in 2016 and 2017.

The contract was signed in light of a 2009 agreement that deepens military cooperation between Moscow and Minsk. Belarus recently saw the delivery of Yak-130 aircraft from Russia.
