Russia’s Defence Ministry recently accepted a delivery of Mi-8MTV-5-1 military helicopters from Russian Helicopters. The helicopters went through strict testing before they were accepted.
The build and assembly quality, as well as component manufacturing was tested during a pre-acceptance and acceptance procedure. Once they were fully assembled, they were tested once more at the workshop to ensure the efficiency of on-board systems and emergency crew support systems. The last testing they went through was a flight test.
The Mi-8MTV-5-1s will be used for SAR missions, with the ability to carry up to 4000kg. the helicopters will be able to fly during the night due to specially adapted lighting systems and night-vision goggles, reports DFNS.net.
