    I've just posted a worrying news about the Mi-28 NE that crashed -or downed ?- tonight above the syrian sky.
    http://www.russiadefence.net/t5089p550-syrian-civil-war-news-7#159947
    We do not know the circumstances, Russia's army communiqué said it was an accident, however I doubt. I have few questions. Does the Mi-28 have President-S' protection too? Is the "President-S" effective against the new generation of american SAM ? Is the protection of cockpit enough against Stinger ? I don't know if this russian helicopter was downed by AAA 57 mm ? 37 mm ? 23 mm ?

    1; It wasnt Mi-28NE, it was Mi-28N.
    2; It was not shot down.
    3; It does not have President-S suite.
    4; It went down because of pilot error.

    Russia’s Mi-28 Attack Helicopter to Get Laser Missile Defense Gear

    Russia’s Mi-28 Night Hunter attack helicopters will soon be equipped with an advanced on-board laser system to defend against MANPAD missiles and air-to-air missiles, a senior adviser to the deputy head of the Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET), told RIA Novosti.

    KRET had earlier announced that it was going to equip Russia’s MiG-35 multirole fighter jets with the latest platform-less inertial navigation system.
    The LINS-100RS and BINS-SP2 inertial systems are designed to determine the location of the object, complex processing and delivering navigation and flight information.They are also able to determine the coordinates and parameters of an object in the autonomous mode and in the absence of terrestrial, marine or space signals.

    MOSCOW, July 1 -. RIA Novosti Deliveries of the newest attack helicopter Mi-28nm in the Russian army will begin in the near future, its cruising speed in comparison with the previous modification will be increased by 13% due to new blades, the appeal says managing director of the company "Rostvertol" Peter Motrenko, published in the company's annual report for 2015.

    "In the near future will begin deliveries of the Russian Defense Ministry powerful attack helicopters Mi-28nm -. A fundamentally new car with improved tactical and technical, flight and combat characteristics In 2015 PJSC" Rostvertol "prototype of the helicopter, which differs from the basic model life. of state tests of the prototype of the Mi-28nm - 2016 ", - stated in the document, a copy of which is at the disposal of RIA Novosti.

    According Motrenko, Mi-28nm will receive a brand new radar that will provide helicopter-round visibility as well as a new control system. In addition to the upgraded "Night Hunter" is also creating new rotor blades, which will increase the cruising speed of the helicopter by 13%, and the maximum, which now amounts to 340 kilometers per hour - 10 percent.

    If that is the NM then I for one find it a little disappointing.

    I was hoping for a more greatly modified gun system with internal ammo storage of much larger capacity in a lower drag arrangement.

    The removal of the nose thimble guidance system for the ATAKA/Shturm system seems to be the main external difference resulting in a slightly better forward view for the gunner...

    Ugliness is a desirable quality for attack choppers. They should look mean, nasty, threatening and in-yer-face. Mi-28 screams at the observer "I deliver what the Apache only promises..." russia

    I think Mi-28NM Will also get those pods on the ends of the wings with chaff and flares and LWR detectors and most probably with MAWS as well.

    AFAIK the Mi28N is a modified aircraft of the 1980s.

    I hope the Mi-28M has all the electronics and sensors and systems upgraded to current, but as I said a more aerodynamic ammo storage option for the main gun would have been nice IMHO.

    Even a change in calibre to the twin 23mm cannon of the new Hinds with smaller more compact ammo with lower recoil could have been a better option in my opinion... though information about how the gun is performing in Syria and Iraq would be useful to consider this option.

    The tailboom and the new mounting plattform is probably already used for a 3 ball DIRCM version like for the Hind, maybe i am wrong but it is a strange location for any sensor and the size of it would suggest something differet than radio equipment.

    The problem the Mi-28 has is indeed the mounting of the gun aswell the low ammunition storage. The gun itself is highly precise but the mounting and the recoil of 40-50kN (depending on cadency) is enormous and destroys any accurate fire to offbore unlike on Kamov setup. Meaning either they figure out simple solution to solve the storage problem which is high air drag aswell low capacity and the horrible inaccuracy in far offbore engagements or they have in most of the cases dead weight as weapon that can only be effective in head on engagements. Such engagements and scenarios are always prefered but not always the best solution for a specific job and it is not a co-axial helicopter that can turn its entire body while flying in a different direction.

    As ugly as the nose thimble was, it looks really weird without it Neutral
    Mi-28 is one of those things so ugly it becomes kinda beautiful.
