GETAFE, Spain - Airbus Defence and Space has followed its recent successful demonstration of air-to-air refueling between two C295W medium transports with a demonstration of refueling contacts with a H225M Caracal helicopter.

In the trial, performed jointly with Airbus Helicopters from Marignane, France in December, contacts were executed at speeds of 105-115kt and both crews reported smooth and simple operation. The system is now being offered to existing and prospective C295 operators. Possible applications include special operations and extending the range of search and rescue aircraft.

MOSCOW - Russian Helicopters, part of Rostec, will supply the Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan with four transport-combat Mi-35M helicopters in 2018. The deliveries will be carried out through Rosoboronexport. The contract was signed as part of the Treaty between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan on military-technical cooperation.

The supplies of the Mi-35Ms, produced at PJSC Rostvertol, are part of strategic cooperation between the two countries and are aimed at gradual replacement of the current military helicopter fleet in Kazakhstan with modern rotorcraft. A similar process is taking place in the Russian Federation, which significantly increases the combat capability of Armed Forces both at the level of the state and in the framework of intergovernmental cooperation of defense ministries.

Kazakhstan is one of the largest and oldest operators of Russian helicopters. The fleet of Russian-made helicopters in Kazakhstan today is about 200 units. The contract for the supply of Mi-35Ms to Kazakhstan specifies payment terms in Russian rubles, which also confirms the strategic character of cooperation between the two countries.

SEOUL - The Republic of Korea (RoK) Navy is looking to add 12 additional maritime utility helicopters by 2022. The added maritime helicopter heft is seen as a necessary capacity-building measure in order to counter and contain North Korea's submarine and surface naval presence. The threat of North Korean submarines has increased in the wake of Pyongyang's successful testing of submarine-launched ballistic missiles last year.

The RoK Navy acquired eight AgustaWestland AW159 Lynx Wildcat multi-role helicopters following a down-selection of the model by South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) over the Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk in January 2013. Purchased at a cost of KRW590 billion ($505 million), these units were delivered in June 2016 and perform anti-submarine warfare (ASW), anti-surface warfare, maritime surveillance, and search-and-rescue (SAR) duties while operating from the RoK Navy's Incheon- (FFX-I) class guided-missile frigates.

This time the procurement will expand to 12 units in order to bring the combined maritime utility helicopter fleet up to 20 total units. The three variants being considered for the KRW900 billion ($768 million) acquisition again include the AgustaWestland AW159 Lynx Wildcat and Sikorsky MH-60R, as well as NH Industries' NH-90. The aim is to secure a contract with the winning bidder by year-end 2018 and begin absorbing the new units into service starting in 2020. All deliveries would be completed by 2022.
