10 Russian Kamov-28 submarine-hunting helicopters with the Indian Navy will start getting IAI’s Skimmer Naval Helicopter Package that will include advanced mission systems, sensors, and avionics such as Radar, Electronic Warfare Support Measures (ESM), Electro-Optic Payloads, Datalink, Communication Intelligence (COMINT), Sonar, Sonics, Mission and Management, and Monitoring Systems.

In 2016, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and Russian manufacturer Rosoboronexport had signed an agreement where it was decided that the helicopters will be first sent to Kumertau in Russia at the facility of Russian Helicopters where they will undergo a technical overhaul to enhance the aircraft’s life and performance.

After their return from Russia at Naval air station Dega, IAI Technicians will then carry out the integration of the Skimmer Naval Helicopter Package that will be certified by the Russian Helicopter experts before they are cleared to join back in service with the Indian Navy.
