    Russia - Peru military deals

    Post  George1 on Wed Dec 28, 2011 11:11 pm

    Russia's arms export agency Rosoboronexport will deliver eight helicopters to Peru, the first post-Soviet arms sale to the Latin American country.

    Peru last week in Lima signed a contract for the delivery of six Mi-171Sh Hip transport and two Mi-35P Hind attack helicopters, Rosoboronexport said in a statement. Observers say the first post-Soviet arms deal to Peru since 1990 was sparked by a trip of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to Lima in November 2008, where he lobbied for a revitalization of new defense cooperation.

    Russia has been eager -- and in some instances successful -- to gain a foothold in the quickly growing Latin American defense market.

    This is good news.

    Off the top of my head, doesn't Peru also operate Su-25s?

    I wonder if they might want to get Su-25SM upgrades too?

    Especially now that the Russian Air Force is upgrading all its Su-25s, they might get a good price for the work.

    Peru needs also new tanks to counterbalance the chilean Leopard-2A4. They possess the old T-55 and AMX light tanks. I think T-90 will have a good chance. And possibly BMP-3 to complement them.

    Not sure how much money they have to spend, but I would suspect that a purchase of upgraded T-72s might be more cost effective, and less likely to provoke an arms race in response.

    An upgraded T-72 has a large fraction of the capabilities of a T-90... not for a second suggesting the T-90 is bad or anything, but the latest model is the T-90MS which is 4 million a vehicle... compared with the T-55... which probably cost $500,000.

    Perhaps they might want to either give their T-55s some radial upgrades, or perhaps even look at the surplus market as the Russian military will have a lot of vehicles they no longer need.

    I really don't know enough about conditions in Peru, like climate and terrain... perhaps vehicles like BMP-3 and lighter tanks like Sprut might be more suitable.

    Do you know what they might be interested in, or actually looking at?

    They need new tanks to counter the Chilean Leopard-2A4 and replace some obsolete T-55.
    About 130 will be needed. T-72M or T-80 could be a cheap solution.

    They also need new light tanks to replace AMX-13 and BMP-3 will be ideal.

    Peruvian air-force (19x MiG-29, 12x Mirage2000) also must fill the gap with Chilean fighters (46x F-16). Possibly in the future MiG-29M will be ordered

    And i think Pechora SAM system needs replacement with a more advanced one like Buk-m2

    I suspect upgraded T-72s would probably be the most cost effective choice... T-80s are no longer in production so you would need to get them second hand.

    Russia has about 2,000 in service and is keeping them till they wear out rather than just scrapping them because they are sophisticated tanks very comparable to early model T-90s.

    The problem is that a few of them are T-80Us which means they have powerful, but gas guzzling gas turbine engines.

    I would think that 140 late model T-72s given an upgrade with french designed by Russian made thermals and comms etc would be a very capable tank without costing too much or triggering a local arms race.

    The BMP-3 would make an excellent light tank that is fully amphibious and with thermals in the late model versions are very capable.

    Mig-29M2s would be very suitable to a country that already operates Mig-29s... are the SMTs?

    A small purchase of Mig-29M2s and an upgrade of the existing aircraft to SMT standard to maximise commonality would be a useful investment.

    Pechora can be upgraded substantially without costing too much, though BUK is a very capable system.

    A few Pantsir-S1 batteries would also be useful to ensure the larger SAMs remain operational if attacked.

    Peruvian army discards the Chinese MBT-2000 for the Russian T-90 better for the areas in Peru

    The Peruvian Army reactivated the project to replace the old Russian-made T-55 main battle tank, the standard heavy armoured vehicle of the Peruvian land forces. The tank T-55 was manufactured during 60s.

    Peru wanted the T-90 from the start, but price was the issue.

    Interesting.

    I would suspect if price was an issue then they are looking at T-90S tanks rather than T-90SM.

    The T-90S tanks are about 2.2 million each AFAIK compared with 4 million for the T-90SM.

    Of course it might be the T-90SM that swayed them that the extra money was worth it.

    Either vehicle would be a huge step up from the T-55.

    I am not sure that they are getting T-90 in any form. They wanted T-90S a few years back, so I don't think MS is even part of the equation.

    Let's wait for something firm.

    Russian Manufacturer Offers Peru T-90S Tank

    LIMA, May 16 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Uralvagonzavod plant is prepared to provide Peru with a full-scale specimen of its T-90S, a main battle tank currently on show at a defense expo in Lima, a representative of the manufacturer said on Thursday.

    Russia’s modified T-90S is currently on display at the SITDEF Peru 2013 defense expo that opened on Wednesday in Lima. The Peruvian military expressed an interest in the tank while visiting Russia last year.

    “Given the genuine interest of Peru in purchasing T-90-type tanks, Uralvagonzavod is prepared to leave the tank in this country for testing after the exhibition is over,” Alexei Maslov, a manufacturer representative and former Armed Forces general, told RIA Novosti.

    Maslov said that Russia has good chances of selling the tanks to Peru, which is expected to purchase between 120 and 170 machines of that class.

    The modified T-90S is fitted with an increased power multi-fuel 1,130-h.p. diesel engine with gas turbine injection, which allows the vehicle to attain a top speed of over 60 km/h on the road and up to 45 km/h on rough terrain.

    Apart from the T-90, UVZ is proposing the conversion of 250 conserved T-55's into BMPT's

    The proposal put forward by the Russian delegation during the past SITDEF Defence Expo 2013 held in the city of Lima, known for its simplicity and consists in replacing the original turret T-55 by module tank combat fire support BMPT (podderzhki Mashina Boyevaya Tankov), which uses two 2A42 automatic cannon 30 mm, two grenade launchers with 300 30-mm ammunition each., four Ataka anti-tank missiles (ability to hit targets at ranges of up to five kilometers ) and 7.62-mm machine gun with shooting independent look, in fact every operator has a scope, which in the case of main armament includes a thermal camera, optical channel TV and panoramic camera to engage targets during day or night and adverse weather. Additionally equipped laser detector system.

    The BMPT design, also called Terminato r, use the same chassis as the T-72 tank, however Uralvagonzavod officials told the Peruvian newspaper La República combat the module is also adaptable to the chassis of the T-55 , which the Peruvian Army has about 250 units. The interior of the chassis and turret can be equipped with layers of Kevlar for increased protection against penetration fragmentary munitions and abroad can receive ERA reactive armor blocks. The engine, transmission, suspension and running gear would be the same as the T-55, which should be subject to comprehensive review and overhaul. It is also possible to increase engine power through a supercharger, if levels do not allow mobility accompany modern tanks like the T-90 and Leopard 2 .

    The resulting armored protection has levels higher than the vast majority of Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV, for its acronym in English), with tracks or wheels, which complements.

    Russia Offers Peru Helicopter Maintenance Center

    LIMA, October 16 (RIA Novosti) – Russia has proposed establishing a servicing and maintenance center in Peru for its Russian- and Soviet-made helicopters, a senior government official said Wednesday.

    The offer was discussed at a meeting between Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Peruvian counterpart Pedro Cateriano, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said.

    “Today...that country [Peru] wants to get not only finished goods from us, but also localize the manufacture of arms and military equipment at home,” Antonov said.

    Russia completed a $20 million upgrade last year for Peru's Russian-built Mi-25 attack helicopters. The Peruvian Air Force operates a total of 16 Mi-25 and Mi-35P helicopters.

    Peru’s government will buy 24 Russian Mil Mi-171 (Hip) helicopters worth overall $406.8 million, local media reported in March. The first 21 helicopters are to be delivered to Peru in 2014, and the other three in 2015.

    Russia and Peru signed a defense and technology cooperation agreement in 2006.

    Russia's Rostec corporation, the parent company of Russian Helicopters, announced plans last year to open a maintenance center in Venezuela for its fleet of Russian-made helicopters.

    Great move as having a repair/support factory in the region would mean that engines would not need to be sent all the way back to Russia for overhauls and maintainence... Russian helos will suddenly become much more affordable to buy and operate in central and south america...

    Russia offered Peru to purchase Mi-171Sh helicopters and armored vehicles

    Russia has offered Peru to purchase Mi-171Sh helicopters and armored vehicles (helicopters are the top-priority product in the network of this offer), RIA Novosti reports with reference to the Director of Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC), Alexander Fomin.

    "We have made a concrete offer to our Peruvian colleagues regarding purchase of Mi-171Sh helicopters. I cannot discuss the offer’s quantitative aspect, but believe me that the offer includes a significant number of vehicles", - he said while discussing the results of the Russian delegation’s visit to Brazil and Peru.

    Alexander Fomin noted that he is referring to technical and commercial proposals, which “are being considered by Peruvian party”. The head of FSMTC added that the Russian party has also elaborated an offer related to purchase of armored vehicles by Peru and successfully demonstrated the vehicles during the visit. In the near term the similar demonstration will be carried out in Russia.

    "But the top-priority project is the possible deliveries of Mi-171Sh helicopters, which is in line with Peru’s plans for increasing the mobility of its army", - Alexander Fomin noted.

    He also said that Russia intends to overhaul and upgrade another batch of MiG-29 fighters for Peru. "An offer concerning overhaul of Su-25 aircraft has also been presented to the Peruvian party", - Director of FSMTC added.

    Russia-Peru military deals

    Post  George1 on Tue Dec 24, 2013 2:01 am

    Peru to acquire 24 Mi-171s from Russia

    The government of Peru has finalised an agreement with Russia to acquire 24 Mil Mi-171 helicopters, according to a media release from Peru’s minister of defence.

    The price of the agreement, which includes a flight simulator and the cost of pilot training in Peru, is not specified.

    The aircraft will be delivered between the second half of 2014 and the end of 2015, says the government.

    In addition, Russia has agreed to open a regional helicopter maintenance and repair centre in Peru in the first quarter of 2016, says the government.

    The maintenance centre will be expanded by 2018 to allow Peru to conduct maintenance on Russia helicopters operated by other Latin American countries.

    Peru says it will use the MI-171s for anti-drug and anti-terrorism missions in an Amazon jungle area called the Valley of the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro rivers.

    That region is known for production of cocoa leaves, which are used to make cocaine, and is a base for an insurgent group called Shining Path, according to reports.

    Peru will take delivery of 8 Mi-171Sh helicopters

    Peruvian air forces will take delivery of eight Mi-171Sh helicopters in November 2014, Lenta.ru reports with reference to Jane's and the Peruvian Minister of Defense, Pedro Cateriano.

    In 2015 Peru will take delivery of 16 more helicopters of the type. The new Mi-171Sh vehicles will replace 8 outdated Mi-17s, which have been operated by the country since 1984.

    Peruvian Ministry of Defense also plans to allocate $11 million for maintenance and overhaul of three currently operated Mi-171Sh helicopters delivered to the country in 2010. This work should be started in late 2014. Moreover, another $2,8 million will be allocated from the military budget of Peru for maintenance and overhaul of the president’s Mi-17-1V helicopter.

    The contract for delivery of 24 Mi-171Sh helicopters to Lima worth $406 million was signed in December 2013. In addition to the main contract for delivery of the vehicles an offset agreement worth $180 million was also signed. The document includes establishment of a MRO center in Peru responsible for maintenance and overhaul of the Russian-produced helicopters. The center will be opened in 2016.

    Under this agreement Peru may offer MRO services to other operators of Mi-17/171 helicopters in the region. Earlier Russia also offered Peru to carry out overhaul of Su-25 strike-fighters manufactured in USSR.

    Russia will start deliveries of Mi-171Sh helicopters to Peru in late 2014

    The deliveries of Russian-produced Mi-171Sh helicopters to Peru in the network of a contract for delivery of 24 vehicles of the type will be started this year, ITAR-TASS reports with reference to Head of Rosoboronexport’s Air Force Equipment Export Department, Sergey Kornev.

    While discussing the possibilities for signing new contracts for delivery of Russian-produced helicopters to Brazil and Venezuela, Kornev noted that export of civil and military helicopters to Latin America is one of the key areas of cooperation with the countries of this region. "For our company Mi-17 Family helicopters are true best-sellers, however, we are also promoting Mi-35M, Mi-28NE and Ka-52 combat helicopters in the region. All these vehicles have a high export potential in Latin America", - he added.

    In late 2013 Peruvian Ministry of Defense reported that 24 Mi-171Sh helicopters would be purchased in order to fight illegal drug-traffic. Moreover, the opening of Latin America regional service center, which will provide MRO services to operators of Russian-produced helicopters in the region, is scheduled for 2016. The center will become the major provider of MRO services for operators of Russian-produced helicopters in the region; its further expansion is scheduled for 2018.

    According to Kornev, Latin American countries are interested in strengthening their air forces and aircraft industry; in the mid-term it is one of the most promising markets for selling Russian-produced military aircraft.

    "In almost all regions there are countries that we still have not established cooperation with (or our cooperation is at its initial stages); however, many of them are interested in purchasing Russian vehicles and weapons. There is no need to rush in this situation, so we must consider a 5-10 years period when discussing new markets or new level of cooperation", - Kornev said.

    He added that one way or another Russia’s initial proposals have been submitted to all the potential customers. "We are keeping them updated on our offers. In this context, one of the most promising regions is Latin America: many countries are developing, they are interested in strengthening their air forces and aircraft industry and, most importantly, they have good relations with Russia", - he stated.

    Peru will purchase 8 more Mi-171Sh helicopters
    Russian Aviaton » Monday July 28, 2014 11:53 MSK

    These helicopters will be used to fight drug traffic and for counterinsurgency operations against the Shining Path insurgent group in the Valley of the Apurimac and Ene River (VRAE). The date of contract signing is unknown.
    It was reported earlier that under a contract signed in December 2013 Peruvian air forces will take delivery of the first 8 Mi-171Sh helicopters in November 2014. A total of 24 Mi-171Sh helicopters worth $406 million will be delivered to Peru under this agreement. The remaining vehicles will be delivered to the customer in 2015. Over the next several years Peru plans to expand its Mi-171Sh helicopters fleet to 38 ones.

    Moreover, the MRO center responsible for maintenance and repair of Russian-produced helicopters will be opened in Peru in 2016. The cost of this project is $180 million. The center is being established in the network of an offset agreement (part of the contract for delivery of 24 helicopters of the type to Peru). After 2016 Peru will be able to offer MRO services to other operators of Mi-17/171 helicopters in the region.
