Russian weapons supplier Rosoboronexport provided the world market with more than 800 Mi-17 helicopters between 2006 and 2016, the Rosoboronexport press service reported on Monday.

Rosoboronexport chief Alexander Mikheev said the company had recently signed a contract with the Bangladesh Air Force on delivering five Mi-171Sh combat-transport helicopters in 2018, Xinhua news agency reported.

"Bangladesh is actively modernizing its national aircraft fleet. We are pleased Bangladesh has chosen the high-quality Russian products," Mikheev said.

Between 2013 and 2016, Rosoboronexport delivered Mi-17 helicopters, Yak-130 advanced trainer aircraft and armoured vehicles to Bangladesh.

Russia's Mi-8/17 family of helicopters are currently products of the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant or the Kazan Helicopter Plant.
