Will Be Deployed In Anti-Drug And Anti-Terrorist Roles
The Russian government has delivered a pair of Mi-35 Hind E
attack helicopters to Peru, which will deploy the aircraft in
anti-narcotics and anti-terrorism missions.
The deliveries were part of a $108-million contract signed
between the two governments last year. Russia agreed to deliver six
Mi-171 Hip H helos along with the Mi-35s. The Russian news agency
RIA Novosti reports that the first of the multi-role helicopters
will arrive in Peru in May.

An-124 transport plane.
The aircraft will fly primarily in the Apurimac and Ene river
