ATEM GAI DE DUT-(Chief Editor). In December 2018 when I first made contact with helicopter-maker, Kazan, I was not certain what I was going to find. Kazan had been building helicopters, designed at its Mil Moscow plant, since  1961,  three decades prior to the fall of the Soviet Union. For two weeks, I waited for their staff to get back to me and when they did, it was via a phone call. And the conversation was not pleasant because of the nature of what I needed.

According to Kazan, The Ugandan People’s Defense Force (UPDF) did not acquire the helicopter from them. The M1-712  which the Ugandans would later tag as AF 605 was procured from Russian Helicopters,  a secondary market operator based in Bolshaya Pionerskaya, an inner suburb of Moscow. The painstaking quest went on with no breakthrough for another two months.
