Rostec representatives told RIA Novosti in Dubai that it had reached agreement with the Pakistani Air Force for the delivery of several Mi-35 helicopters.
"We have signed a contract with Pakistan for the Mi-35, deliveries will begin next year," Sergey Chemezov, Rostec general director, told RIA Novosti in Dubai.
The attack helicopter is equipped with guided anti-tank missiles and unguided rockets, and also can be used to transport eight paratroopers with equipment, or military cargo.
"They received an exhaustive consultation about the technical characteristics and military use of the helicopter. Generally, the Bahraini representatives expressed the desire for more talks at a later date," the source revealed.
The discussions in Dubai follow an agreement Russia and Bahrain signed in May to strengthen their military-technical cooperation, in the course of talks held in Bahrain that the Bahraini ambassador to Russia called "very productive."
In July a delegation from Bahrain visited Russia to observe the 2015 Aviadarts international military aviation competition, which featured Mi-35, Mi-8 and KA-52 helicopters, as well as nine fighter jets, including the Su-27 and Su-34.
On Sunday, head of the Iraqi parliament's defense and security committee Hakim al Zamili announced that the Iraqi air force had taken delivery of Russian Mi-28 and Mi-35 helicopters, part of a military equipment agreement worth $4.2 billion that the two countries signed in 2012.
"They [the Russian helicopters] will help Iraq to gain the upper hand in the fight against terrorist groups," said al Zamili, who added that Iraq is also hoping to add Russian tanks, armored transport vehicles and the Kornet anti-tank missile system to its armory.
