A pair of combat training "Night hunters" Mi-28UB entered the Leningrad Army

Two Mi-28UB combat training helicopters entered service with the helicopter regiment of the Leningrad Army Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District. The car transfer ceremony was held in St. Petersburg. This was reported by the press service of ZVO.


According to the report, the new Mi-28UB helicopters were delivered as part of a defense order. This is the second batch of helicopters this year, the first batch entered the regiment in early 2020.

I want to note the high maneuverability and combat capabilities of these machines, the ergonomics of the cockpit and the very convenient location of the controls for helicopter systems, as well as the effectiveness of optical systems that help to find and recognize targets with high accuracy

- noted the commander of one of the crews, senior lieutenant Ivan Zuev.

Mi-28UB is a combat training modification of the Mi-28N Night Hunter attack helicopter, designed to train the flight crew of Mi-28Н helicopters. In this case, the helicopter is able to solve the full range of combat missions.

The Mi-28UB helicopter is equipped with a second set of control system in the front cockpit, where the instructor is located in the training version of the application, and the pilot-operator in the combat version. To ensure the necessary ergonomic parameters of the crew’s workplaces, the helicopter fuselage design was changed: the front cockpit was expanded, the glazing area was increased and the visibility of the pilot-operator (instructor) from the front cockpit was improved. Another innovation is the energy-absorbing seats that protect the pilots during a hard landing.

      Yes, this pair is enough to scare the Balts to the damaged desks. They will scream to the whole world that the Russians are not today so they will surely attack tomorrow.

        And how many combat-training helicopters should be delivered? 20 pieces in each unit?

            You yourself answered this question with your comment below. They did not abandon the army, but reequipped it, it was impossible to do it at the same time, you understand that there are no specialists, young people are looking for money, why grind bolts for a penny if you can speculate. The power of the factories allows you to produce, no one to work!

        Equipment, including aircraft with helicopters, enter the army not in units, but in dozens a year. Mi-28 helicopters in the troops are already more than 100 pieces and more than 100 pieces of Ka-52, and Mi-8 and Mi-35 are also delivered.

        And this pair of UB (combat training) they do not need a lot in the unit.

          You just need to go to the MO site. And what do we see?
          From 2005 to the present, 67 Mi-28 helicopters of all modifications were delivered to the troops.
          Perhaps next year another 98 helicopters will be delivered. It is written a little vaguely and not clearly, they include the modification of the Mi-28N to Mi-28NM, but be that as it may, the program is designed until 2027. those. at best 14 helicopters per year. The Ka-50 was discontinued and withdrawn from the army, the Ka-52 — with these slightly better, about 10 units were produced in just over 120 years of production.
          We look and what about our opponents at the Americans, they have more than 300 units a year, they constantly update the existing park.
          This is very, very annoying. The army was practically abandoned, all hope is only on the Strategic Missile Forces, on SSBNs. They went along the path of Khrushchev.

            Well, why are you different: "they have 300 a year, we have 10", "they abandoned the army" ?!

            Russia builds has a sufficient number of helicopters and all other equipment to carry out current tasks, such as, for example, the operation in Syria and it is building more. It builds not only helicopters, but in general everything from small arms to tanks, planes, helicopters and ships.

            Russia’s GDP and economic capacity are several times less than the US + NATO countries and in terms of the number of equipment it’s hard for us to compete with them, and we don’t need it.

            We are holding global equilibrium with the help of strategic nuclear forces, and we need the rest of the equipment to solve simpler problems.

            The USSR set up many planes, helicopters, tanks and ships, and they split us not by military means, but by economic means. So, there should be a balance in everything. And now it is precisely these armed forces that are building.

            Yes, NATO has a lot of planes and helicopters, but we have the best in the world and numerous air defense consisting of air defense systems and radars of different ranges. This is how we achieve parity with NATO and everyone else.

      For the army - the norm. To the state regiment 2. Moreover, a helicopter. I’m generally afraid of them .... It's like a bicycle - either you know how or not. Therefore, the UB option is very valuable.

    Manual piece assembly is always appreciated. From Palekh caskets to Gzhel night pots.
    We are not the Pentagon. Ford's capitalist conveyors are not recognized. The CNC machines are Chinese, but the Chinese assemble helicopters on our patterns and on the conveyor.

    Something I do not understand ... It seems back in the 90s they wrote that the Mi-28 is equipped with energy-absorbing seats, which dampen the impact energy up to some "Same" due to crushed structures, etc. ... Advertising the same again?

      Above, Lord Sith posted a video of the arrival of these helicopters. They have both supratulmonary radar and nasal radar. This can only mean one thing - the supratulco radar is not installed, and only its cone fairing is standing. Such mock-ups of the supra-muzzle radar were also put on some exhibition Mi-28N, for greater effect.

        I completely agree ... And in the first photos that appeared a few years ago, the two-dimensional ... Stupidly in the paint ... It’s because you don’t mess it up in Photoshop .. you can’t (if you are familiar with the prospect). In fact it doesn’t ....

        This may mean that two systems are mounted on training machines at once in order to conduct training on both "MN" and "N".

    I can’t understand one thing. Mi-24s initially went with dual controls, they refused to Mi-28s and only the commander had control. And here is a breakthrough on the Mi-28UB dual control! But it would not be better to admit that the rejection of dual control was an ERROR!

      You can recognize who will sit down for this ?. Here a causal relationship is visible. A huge number of errors, a waste of budget money, and who will answer? The designer or the one who launched the series, or who did not hear in the Moscow Region?

    This is a conditionally "combat" specimen, combat regiments need UB machines, but this does not mean that the entire regiment must be UB.

    The helicopter is good, but it needs to be improved, something needs to be done to increase the accuracy of the gun and equip it with new missiles with an active seeker, so that it is no worse than Helfaer.

    I liked that we began to pay more attention to visibility and the convenience of pilots -

    To ensure the necessary ergonomic parameters of the crew’s workplaces, the helicopter fuselage design was changed: the front cockpit was expanded, the glazing area was increased and the visibility of the pilot-operator (instructor) from the front cockpit was improved.


    It was -
