[size=52]Iraq faces difficulties in maintaining its Russian planes due to the Ukraine war[/size]

[size=45]Translation: Hamed Ahmed[/size]
[size=45]An American report stated that the crisis in Ukraine had caused great damage to Russian aircraft in Iraq, and spoke of a significant decline in maintenance operations after a clear decline in performance, expecting to disable some of them in order to ensure the continuation of the work of others, stressing that this may negatively affect military missions against ISIS terrorist organization.[/size]
[size=45]A report by the American magazine Forbes, translated by Al-Mada, stated that "the Iraqi army's aviation is facing great difficulties in maintaining and maintaining its fleet of Russian-made combat helicopters, as an indirect reason for the consequences of the Russian invasion of Ukraine."[/size]
[size=45]The report added, “The last quarterly report of the Inspector General of the US Department of Defense, the Pentagon, on the activities of the international coalition forces in Iraq against ISIS, indicated that the matters that impeded the supplies of Russian spare parts to Iraq due to the war in Ukraine and the sanctions imposed against Russia because of its launch of that war, have affected on Iraq’s ability to maintain its Russian-made warplanes.” He pointed out that "the Inspector General revealed in his report that the helicopters of the Army Aviation Command, Mi-17, were negatively damaged as a result of that crisis."[/size]
[size=45]And the report indicated, "These helicopters, besides being the backbone of the Iraqi Army's fleet of helicopters, which also includes (Mi-28) and (Mi-35) attack helicopters, the (Mi-17) helicopters are considered very vital. In the operations of supporting and supporting the ground forces in carrying out the evacuation missions.”[/size]
[size=45]He noted that "the decline in maintenance and logistical support for the Mi-17 helicopters has caused a significant decrease in the rate of mission capacity of the aircraft associated with ground forces units."[/size]
[size=45]The report stressed, "This also led to an increase in the flights of these helicopters in excess of their recommended flight hours, which further decreased their performance rates in missions."[/size]
[size=45]And he added, "These failures came only months after Iraq implemented a program to repair and restore its military helicopters."[/size]
[size=45]The report confirmed, "The Iraqi Defense Minister, Saadoun Inad, had conducted an inspection visit on March 1 to the Taji base to see the Russian helicopters that were returned to service according to this program."[/size]
[size=45]And Enad was quoted as saying, "We are continuing with this program, and we plan in the near future to repair a second batch of helicopters, and so on, until the completion of the repair and restoration of all the idle helicopters, and thus we increase the readiness rate of the total aircraft by more than 80%." The report stated, "The Inspector General, with regard to the campaign of the international coalition against ISIS, expected a decline in the flights of these planes, at least throughout the continuation of the war in Ukraine."[/size]
[size=45]He stressed, "The Inspector General stated that while this war is expected to continue within the foreseeable future, it is expected that Iraq will not be able to complete the project of repairing and maintaining aircraft any time soon."[/size]
[size=45]And the report suggested, “Iraq will eventually have to disable and dismantle some of its helicopters to be able to keep the other planes in service.”[/size]
[size=45]He also noted that "a significant decline in the number of (Mi-17) combat aircraft sorties may negatively affect the capabilities of military missions in combating the remnants of the terrorist organization ISIS in the country."[/size]
[size=45]The report stated, "While after 2003, Iraq acquired American F-16 combat aircraft and used American combat tanks (Abrams-M1), it decided to continue purchasing most of its helicopters from Russia."[/size]
[size=45]And he stressed, "Baghdad had purchased American Apache attack helicopters in 2014, but then chose to go to buy Russian combat helicopters parallel to it." The report continues, that “Iraq had requested to obtain two models of Russian combat helicopters, Mi-35 and Mi-28 in mid-2010 because they are easier to use and integrated into its fleet of army aircraft, due to its previous experience with these copies of aircraft.” .[/size]
[size=45]And the report went on, that "Iraq appears to have been more inclined to buy Russian (Mi-17) helicopters for transport and evacuation instead of buying American Black Hawk planes, as it has previous experience with these planes."[/size]
