The head of the Russian Aerospace Forces Army Aviation Igor Romanov said that the tests of the Mi-28M (modernized Mi-28N “Night Hunter”), Mi-38 and Mi-26T2V combat helicopters are proceeding according to the schedule.
The air mobile was turned on: the airborne forces were reinforced with helicopters The number of maneuver formations will be increased as part of the airborne troops
According to him, in the near future, improved machines with new equipment will go to the State Center for Combat Use and Retraining of Army Aviation Flight Personnel.
“All these three types of equipment are currently being tested in order to increase the combat capabilities of the army aviation. The test program is on schedule, “he said in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper on Wednesday, October 28.
Romanov also noted that the Ministry of Defense continues to re-equip aviation units. Thus, by the end of the year, it is expected that a batch of improved Ka-52 helicopters will be delivered to the air forces and air defense units of the Southern Military District.
In early October, it was reported that Mi-28NM combat helicopters will be able to launch mini-drones and kamikaze drones from guiding missiles.
Their difference from the weapons currently in use is the ability to adapt the number of missile guides for each task, as well as the equipment for programming weapons.
