The second batch of three Mi-171Sh helicopters, produced by Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (UUAP), a part of Russian Helicopters, was delivered to the Defence Ministry of Peru in September 2011.

The Peruvian Defence Ministry had signed a contract with Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport in July 2010 to supply six Mi-171SH transport helicopters.

The helicopters delivered under the present contract have been equipped with modern systems enhancing their combat performance, a number of avoidance means for major systems and crew, as well as radar and instrument equipment allowing operations in adverse weather, day and night.
