Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

UkrOboronProm head Roman Romanov said: “Mi-24PU1 meets all modern warfare requirements, equipped with advanced electronics, effective system of protection and powerful weapons.

“This is the equipment defenders of our country need and the SC 'UkrOboronProm' continues to supply the armed forces of Ukraine with this type of military equipment.”

Powered by new domestic engines, the Mi-24PU-1 helicopter is fitted with a super 30mm automatic cannon and a variety of missile weapons, including precision anti-tank guided missiles.

It is also equipped with modern sighting and navigation systems that provide a major advance, allowing tasks to be completed even in darkness.

"Powered by new domestic engines, the Mi-24PU-1 helicopter is fitted with a super 30mm automatic cannon and a variety of missile weapons."

The company improved the helicopter’s security by using Adros, developed by Scientific Industrial Complex Progress.

This complex misguides missiles with infra-red guidance, by improving helicopter protection from man-portable air defense systems of Igla and Stinger types, and missiles of air-to-air type R-60 and R-73.

Romanov added: “Mi-24PU1, manufactured by Konotop Aircraft Repair Plant Aviakon, is the result of effective collective work of UkrOboronProm enterprises and strategic international cooperation with partners, supplying Ukrainian helicopter with modern electronics.”
