    The losses for both aircraft are statistically insignificant... perhaps if ten of each had crashed you might be able to point to a problem... remember one B-2 has crashed out of only 20, but they didn't panic...

    Or not quite ready... two missing ATGM tubes there... Rushing out to a noise in the backyard with her hair in curlers...

    Good mix of weapons though... 6 ATGMs, plus 10 122mm rockets, and 4 air to air missiles plus a 30mm cannon... those 122mm rockets are designed to penetrate protected hangars and destroy the aircraft inside so effectively APHE... would be excellent for concrete buildings or armoured vehicles...

    The development of "Night Superhunter" reached the finish line. By the end of the year, the Russian Mi-28NM attack helicopter will pass state tests.

    The helicopter will be equipped with several new types of missiles. Last year, it was reported that the “superhunter” will be adopted by the Hermes-A, also known as the “Product 305”. The firing range of such ammunition will allow the Mi-28NM to attack targets at a distance of 15-20 km. It will also become possible to use the long-range ATGM Chrysanthemum-VM.

    As Izvestia previously wrote, work is also underway on the installation of modern air-to-air R-74M missiles with an infrared guidance head on a machine

    "The supply contract for the VKS 96 Mi-28NM was signed at the Army-2019 forum. "

    Anyone know the qty and schedule? The article talks about an initial batch of 6, and then 12-16 units per year.

    Nice Post.

    Anyone able to recognize what kind of equipment this is and maybe the designation for it?

    That seems to be a side looking radar. But it already has a top mounted radar so why use it ?

    It looks like front looking radar and is bigger than that on the top of the rotor. Most probably this one is connected with new long range missiles as they need radar with longer range to find targets for them.

    I would guess it is the radar pod needed to operate the Khrisantema ATGMs... essentially it is a replacement for the black nose mounted thimble that controlled the Shturm and Ataka missiles, and is an actual radar that detects targets and directs the new Khrisantema missiles to the targets.

    I don't think it uses active radar homing missiles... I think it might be more along the lines of SARH or perhaps even the the helicopter mounted radar tracks the target and the outgoing missile and sends course correction instructions to the missile in flight to hit the target... or perhaps it directs a pencil beam at the target and the missile uses that beam to fly down like an all weather smoke resistant laser beam rider method of guidance.

    It does have laser beam riding guidance as backup but is described as being able to be used in full white out (snow) and brown out (dust/sand storm) conditions... which would probably render most laser beam and wire guided and optically guided systems ineffective...

    Nice pic...
