Another seven 24 Russian MIL-171SH military transport helicopters will be delivered to Peru later this month, the deputy head of Russia's main arms exporter said on Monday.

Rosoboronexport deputy director Sergei Ladygin made the announcement at the close of an international arms exhibition held in the Latin American country.

The $400 million-plus contract for the delivery of 24 MIL-171SH helicopters was inked in December 2013.

The first batch of four aircraft, made by the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, were supplied to the Peruvian Air Force in December 2014.
