 France to Help Ukraine Modernize Mi-24 Combat Helicopters

State Consortium “Ukroboronprom” is implementing a joint project with French company SAGEM for capital modernization of Mi-24 helicopters.

According to Censor.NET with reference to Liga, this was stated at a briefing of the Group's General Director Roman Romanov.

"These helicopters will fly under any and all conditions - at night, in fog, at any time of the day. There is a movie about the future, where the pilot is wearing a helmet, he has a lens, and in this lens he sees all helicopter's characteristics, all flight data, as well as sighting. An air-cyborg, so to speak. This is the equipment we will have soon," Romanov said.

He also stated that in the near future the Ukrainian army will adopt Ukrainian-made anti-tank missiles Alt. "We will have the Alt anti-tank missile, its specifications to be revealed later ... It is a very high performance and most importantly, the first fully Ukrainian design rocket, which uses dual-mode guidance method," he said.
