BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Russian military has tested their Mi-28NM attack helicopter in a combat mission inside Syria, the Russian publication Izvestia recently reported.

Dubbed the “night hunter”, the Mi-28NM completed successful trials in Syria’s mountainous and desert terrain. Such tests have confirmed that the helicopter is ready to enter service in the Russian military, Isvestia reported.

The former commander of the Russian 4th Army Air Force and Air Defense Valery Gorbenko explained that the Mi-28NM has the ability to provide close support to paratroopers, motorized infantry, tanks and reconnaissance planes .

The Mi-28NM differs greatly from its predecessors as it is equipped with a NO25E radar.  This radar gives the aircraft all-around visibility, along with a radar image of the terrain.

The publication added that another feature of the Mi-28NM is an engine equipped with a system capable of regulating its operation in flight.

One of the Mi-28NM’s most distinctive features is its radar dome that is located on top of its rotor blades.

The Mi-28NM was reportedly used in combat missions against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in central and eastern Syria.

2x 2,194hp engines… Pfff, with 2x 1,750hp, an Airbus CN-235 carries 6 tons payload… With such engines, they could make a STOL propeller strike aircraft capable to be airborne in 150-200m (and even much less with a rocket assisted take-off) carrying as much payload as a MiG-35 while being able to loiter for many hours, fly much faster than a chopper if necessary, you won’t be cut like shawarma if you use an ejector seat, when in terms of transports, the aircraft is by far the most secure mean, helicopter is as dangerous as motorbike. A fixed wing propeller aircraft… Read more »
