“The Mi-38T is a new helicopter. Its first flight took place at the end of 2018, and today, in addition to the already contracted machines, Rosoboronexport is processing several more applications for their delivery to foreign partners," said the general director of Rosoboronexport, Alexander Mikheev.

"The Mi-38 is a transport and troop landing helicopter with modern piloting and navigation equipment, a navigation satellite system and a navigational weather radar. Its deliveries, like the deliveries of the Mi-28NM to the troops will begin already this year," the Air Force commander said last September in an interview with the Defense Ministry’s Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.

The Mi-38T transport and troop landing helicopter is a derivative of the certified civilian Mi-38 rotorcraft. The helicopter has been re-equipped for accomplishing troop landing and transport missions. The Mi-38T design features an option of re-equipping it into the medical evacuation version and installing extra fuel tanks to extend its flight range.
