Russia, India to assemble 400 choppers a year in India

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Russia and India have agreed to assemble 400 twin-engined helicopters a year in India, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said after summit talks between President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Rogozin said the deal related to the Ka-226T, a light multi-role helicopter built by Russian Helicopters that can be used for search-and-rescue operations in mountainous areas.
