Advanced Russian High-Speed Helicopter Could Have Military Version

1

A new Russian high-speed helicopter currently under development may be adapted for military use, a manager at an avionics systems manufacturer involved in the project said.

“We’ve had talks about the military version,” said Givi Janjgava, Deputy Director General of Radio-Electronic Technologies KRET.

A KRET representative earlier told RIA Novosti that the company is developing a glass cockpit for the helicopter, known by its Russian acronym PSV (Advanced High-Speed Helicopter).

The new glass cockpit would replace the cumbersome array of traditional dials and gauges with a computerized display that can optimize information and reduce distractions to pilots.
