Russian Helicopters is preparing to hand over the first three Mi-171Sh military transports to the Ministry of Defense of Peru. The full agreement, reached in 2010, calls for a total of six Mi-171Sh transports, with the remaining three scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2011.
Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (UUAP) built the helicopters under a FSUE Rosoboronexport contract. The Mi-171Sh will perform numerous tasks for the Peruvian Defense Ministry, including law enforcement and anti-drug trafficking.
