Updated Mi-28NM will be able to compete with fifth generation fighters


The operation in Syria allowed our country to thoroughly test about 300 types of weapons and special equipment... The experience gained has made it possible to significantly raise the level of the latter. In particular, one of the results of the "Syrian mission" was an improved version of our attack helicopter, called the Mi-28NM.


Its predecessor, the Mi-28N Night Hunter, entered service in 2009. The car could boast of outstanding aerobatic characteristics, but it had "childhood diseases", which were revealed during the Syrian operation.

For example, in some flight modes, the transmission of the helicopter overheated, and in some temperature modes, the engine did not give out full power. There were also comments to the onboard electronics.

In the new version of the "Night Hunter", problems with the transmission and power plant were solved, and the improved electronics turned out to be better than any of the foreign counterparts. In addition, the Mi-28NM "learned" to independently control part of the electronics by means of AI and interact with reconnaissance and strike UAVs.

As a result, our new attack helicopter not only got rid of "childhood diseases", but also became even more maneuverable and "deadly".

The American edition of The National Interest has already compared the updated "Night Hunter" with the latest version of Apache. The rotorcraft from the USA yielded, and the Russian Mi-28NM was called a "universal fighter", capable of fighting in the air even with the fifth generation fighters F-22 and F-35.

By the way, it was for their destruction that the R-74M anti-aircraft missile, which entered service with the "Night Hunter", was developed.

    Updated Mi-28NM will be able to compete with fifth generation fighters

    - Eh, unreliable and very vulnerable "creatures" ... - these helicopters in general ... in principle ... - And as a weapon ... - just dead-end and reached its "ceiling" ...

    The rotorcraft from the USA yielded, and the Russian Mi-28NM was called a "universal fighter", capable of fighting in the air even with the fifth generation fighters F-22 and F-35.

    By the way, it was for their destruction that the R-74M anti-aircraft missile, which entered service with the "Night Hunter", was developed.

    - Well, how can a Mi-28NM shoot down an F-22 or F-35 in the air with R-74M short-range missiles ???
    - When they themselves find it much earlier (such a slow-moving target) and at a distance, roughly speaking ... - not less than 150 km ... - easily hit ... - There is no AFAR on Mi-28NM helicopters ... - Yes, and even if he detects "radiation" from the radar of the enemy's radar sights; then where will he be able to "get away" from the "AIM-120D Scorpion", such a "slow" and slow speed ???
    - Here ... - against enemy helicopters, tanks and other armored vehicles (you can shoot at enemy boats) ... - The Mi-28NM will become a real threat ...

    In addition, the Mi-28NM "learned" to independently control part of the electronics by means of AI and interact with reconnaissance and strike UAVs.

    - Here, here ... this is the beginning and it is necessary to develop ... - full interaction-leadership and management of a whole swarm of all kinds of UAVs ... - And all this should be tested and "applied" in Syria and Armenia (Karabakh) ...; where our attack helicopter Mi-24 was shot down less than a year ago ...
    - But, unfortunately ... - Russia still has a UAV ... - "big problems" ... - Alas ...

      Well, do not exaggerate, so far, of course, we are lagging behind in quantity, but reconnaissance and shock "Orion" and "Altius", reconnaissance "Orlan", kamikaze drones "Lancet" and KYB from "Kalashnikov" have appeared, all have passed tests in Syria, it remains to increase their production

    - How much are they paid for such anal-iz?

    - "The more monstrous the lie, the sooner they will believe in it!" - Who said that?! lol

    I would not take off on any helicopter, knowing that there is an F-22 in the air.

    modernization of helicopters in Russia, and other countries as well, is focused on air-to-ground capabilities. Why not create an air defense version of the Mi-28. Having installed the entire radar system of the same Su-50 and equipped the helicopter with ultra-long-range, medium and short-range missiles, and instead of a cannon and other systems for the "land", supplement it with anti-missile self-defense means. Such a complex has a number of advantages over ground systems.
    - survivability due to maneuver and invulnerability from means of destruction (artillery, UAVs, special forces, missiles, etc.).
    - the ability to quickly build up air defense potential in the desired area
    - the ability to hide behind obstacles (forest, houses, etc.) and work from ambushes against fighters and other air targets
    It is not necessary to make a series of 100 vehicles out of this, but even 10-20 of these specialized helicopters with a powerful radar and a large arsenal of various missiles can play a significant role in any conflict. In the future, it is possible to add UAV carriers of helicopter or quadruple-type missiles, purely as a platform for missiles, not far from the lead helicopter.
