    <p>Country turns down Rosboronexport-backed package from Sukhoi for offer from rival and may follow with avionics deal</p> <p>Algeria is expected to sign a $2 billion contract with Russia's RSK MiG for the delivery of around 50 MiG-29M1/M2 multirole fighters and MiG-AT advanced jet trainers, following almost three years of negotiations. The country had been offered two packages - one comprising the MiGdesigns and Ilyushin Il-103 piston trainers; and another with Sukhoi Su-30MK fighters, Yakovlev Yak-130 advanced jet trainer/light-attack aircraft and Yak-152 ab initio trainers.</p> <p>Brokered by Russia's Rosoboronexport state armaments agency, the Sukhoi package had initially been favoured, but Algeria is understood to have opted for the less expensive proposal from RSK MiG, which unlike Sukhoi has permission to export weapons without Rosoboronexport involvement. Industry sources say the MiG package is up to 30% cheaper due to the MiG-29's lower unit cost against the larger Su-30, an

    <p>Beriev plans to deliver the first three Be-103 six-seat amphibians to US distributor Aerocorp International in July, when the type is expected to gain US certification. The Russian manufacturer applied to the US Federal Aviation Administration a year ago under the bilateral aviation agreement between Russia and the USA, which allows for mutual recognition of national certificates. The procedure was used by the FAA for the "shadow" certification of the Ilyushin Il-103 light aircraft and Il-96M/T airliner. The Be-103 programme is expected to break even after production of 250 aircraft, says the manufacturer.</p>

    <p>VLADIMIR KARNOZOV / MOSCOW &amp; ANDREW DOYLE / SINGAPORE</p> <p>Winning bidder to supply avionics technology for indigenous KMH multipurpose helicopter in industrial offset deal</p> <p>South Korea is likely to reactivate its shelved AH-X attack helicopter programme next year following conceptual studies into the country's proposed indigenous multipurpose helicopter (KMH).</p> <p>The ministry of national defence (MND) says the AH-X remains officially frozen following the mothballing of the project in October due to budget constraints. South Korean industry sources say, however, there is a growing realisation among defence officials that the KMH will not offer sufficient performance for it to be used in the attack role, and that local industry will require overseas assistance to develop its on-board systems.</p> <p>A strengthening South Korean won is, meanwhile, helping to ease budget pressures, say the sources, meaning Seoul could be in a position to go to contract on the AH-X b
