Rosoboronexport to compete in US helicopter tender for Afghanistan

Russia's state-run arms exporter Rosoboronexport will compete in a helicopter tender for 21 Mi-171 Hip transport helicopters and equipment. The US government issued an RFP in July for the helicopters, to be used in the Afghan theater of operations.

The Russian exporter is also preparing a contract for the delivery of additional RD-93 jet engines to China. The RD-93 is a development of the RD-33 developed by Russia's Klimov design bureau for China's FC-1 Fierce Dragon fighter, known in Pakistan as the JF-17 Thunder.
