    Didn't Soviet fighters have gun cameras in WWII that were used to confirm if a pilot had actually killed an enemy plane?

    AFAIK yes they did, but they would be film cameras rather than digital cameras with digital memory and monitors for playback on the ground.


    Though, my point was that, interestingly, neither the altimeter, nor the other MFCD are displaying info. Usually, once the batteries have been switched on, some basic, analogue instruments fire up with it. And, depending on the aircraft, you would have all MFCDs fire up as well.

    You are assuming they have to boot up all systems just to activate one monitor and the memory of the recorded mission.

    A modern attack helo like a Ka-52 probably has multiple computers that are linked via a network, but likely can operate separately too.

    never the less. I am just pointing this out because I noticed it in the background and enjoy the odd debunking here and there. not because I have any particular angle I am trying to push.

    The camera view we are looking at seems fixed and could have been edited... I am sure before being allowed to release this on the internet some people probably had to censor it first and they might have altered or changed some footage for whatever purpose.

    If they really wanted to fake something they could easily have zoomed right in and just had the footage visible without a view of the cockpit...

    Well regardless they are probably there for the same purpose. To keep track of the aircrafts activity.

    It would be for reviewing the mission and comparing with the pilots report.

    Footage can be closely examined to determine if the attacks were effective and follow up recon can determine how effective the attacks were and whether follow up attacks are needed or not.

    Such footage can be used for training as well as performance evaluation.

    Russia’s Aerospace Force to get most advanced attack helicopters by yearend

    Now a pre-production batch is underway

    ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 6. /TASS/. Two most advanced Mil Mi-28NM serial-produced attack helicopters will arrive for Russian troops by the end of 2018, Russian Helicopters Group CEO Andrei Boginsky said on Tuesday.

    "Now a pre-production batch is underway and the contract is due to be completed in November this year. Correspondingly, we are complying with the schedule. So far, two helicopters are stipulated in the contract," the rotorcraft manufacturer’s chief executive said, responding to the corresponding question from TASS.

    Russia started developing the Mi-28NM helicopter in 2009. Its modernized version considerably differs from its prototype. The Mi-28NM will feature an innovative helmet-mounted target designation and display system as part of its onboard radar equipment.

    The helicopter is furnished with the N025 all-round surveillance radar and a new electronic warfare system. The gunship is designed to search for and destroy low-speed air targets, tanks, armored and non-armored hardware and enemy manpower day and night and in any weather conditions.

    Wow... if that is a requirement perhaps they will equip the 30mm cannon with airburst rounds with smart fuses... it would certainly be the most efficient way of dealing with air targets... such guns wont be accurate enough to hit the target with every round but the rounds would mostly pass closely by the target... without airburst ammo the rounds that miss even if they come very close to the target will just whip by and do no damage. With airburst round they will explode near the target... so very light targets like UAVs would be damaged by fragments even if every round does not hit them... most will damage them.

    Obviously for armoured targets AP rounds would need to be used and direct hits achieved...

    It also to get new optronics system similar to ka-52 as well.
