Russian Helicopters company CEO said that a decision on the purchase of Russia's shipborne Ka-52K Katran combat helicopters by Egypt should be reached this month, Sputniknews reported.

 A decision on the purchase of Russia's shipborne Ka-52K Katran combat helicopters by Egypt should be reached this month, Russian Helicopters company CEO Andrey Boginsky said Friday.

"The bidding procedure is in the final stage and I think we will learn the result of this tender during May," Boginsky told reporters.

He said Russia's Rosoboronexport state export-import intermediary would enter into pricing negotiations with Egypt in late May if Russian Helicopters win the tender.

The Ka-52K is a naval modification of the Ka-52 Alligator reconnaissance and combat helicopter designed to destroy armored vehicles, perform fire support operations, and conduct patrol and escort missions.
