Cyprus to sell its Mi-35PM attack helicopters to Syria?
According to a report by the Greek Military website Defencenews.gr, the Republic of Cyprus is interested in selling its 11 Mil-35PMs due to their relatively low operational availability.
The Russian manufacturing company is delivering the necessary spare parts at a very slow rate, regardless of the Follow-On-Support agreement that the two sides signed in 2014.
Any sale, however, must be agreed with Russia as the End-User License must be issued by the latter to the new owner should the sale goes on.
