A few years ago it was difficult to imagine that the Russian army for the first time in many years would enter into a real lengthy military conflict. Syria has become not only a testing ground for the newest Russian weapons - hundreds and thousands of our pilots, special forces soldiers, artillerymen, intelligence officers, military police officers and many others went through the war.
The conflict in Syria showed the advantages and disadvantages of domestic military equipment. Together with the military at the airport Hmeimim worked and the developers, who recorded all the shortcomings associated with the operation of combat vehicles. Part of the work on the bugs has already been done, the result of which was the updated attack helicopter Mi-28HM.
