"Our work has been accepted. It is no longer a research work but a detailed technical design. We continue working out specifications for the next phase - the development works- together with the Russian Defense Ministry," Boginsky said adding that the new flying craft would be absolutely new.

Asked about the weapons and characteristics of the new helicopter, Boginsky explained that "any customer moves towards harmonization of arms though it is clear that there are certain particularities of using them on ship-based helicopters."

In May 2018, Boginsky said that a detailed technical design for the prospective Minoga helicopter was due to be ready in the first quarter of 2019.

Earlier, Sergei Mikheyev, the chief designer of the Kamov Design Bureau, the Russian Helicopters’ affiliate, told TASS that an unmanned variant of the prospective Minoga sea helicopter could also be developed to meet the demands of potential customers.
