Thailand’s police are interested in purchasing Ansats. Also, there has been interest in the search and rescue configuration of Mi-171A2,” said Boginsky, who is in Thailand on a visit.

“Also, we have been holding talks on selling Ka-32 helicopters to that country. This helicopter is in great demand. Our Thai counterparts have seen them in action in South Korea and China. Ka-32 can be used for fighting fires. It is capable of carrying horizontal fire-fighting systems,” Boginsky said.
