Terms of handing over to the military the first serial Mi-28NM "Night Hunter"

37

The Defense Ministry will receive a batch of modernized serial Mi-28NM Night Hunter helicopters. The delivery of attack helicopters will take place before the end of this year.


The Russian military department will begin to receive the modernized Mi-28NM, a batch of helicopters is already being manufactured at the defense industry enterprises. Work is proceeding according to schedule under the contract signed by the Ministry of Defense and Russian Helicopters in 2019 for the supply of 98 modernized Mi-28NM.

According to the source quoted by RIA News, this year from four to six serial Mi-28NM helicopters will be handed over to the military. The first two serial Mi-28NMs from the pilot batch were handed over to the military at the end of last year.

The Mi-28NM is a highly efficient all-weather attack helicopter of a new generation, designed to perform a wide range of missions. The machine was created taking into account the combat experience of using a helicopter in Syria. The Mi-28NM onboard radar equipment includes an innovative helmet-mounted target designation and indication system. The vehicle is equipped with a new radar station H025, which allows for all-round visibility, as well as a new electronic warfare system. The Mi-28NM is equipped with a second control kit.

The helicopter received a Russian-made VK-2500P engine, new rotor blades and new weapons unified with the Ka-52.

        Three? Thirteen, you mean? Work on it began in 2007.
        The story there is very unattractive for "Phazotron". The developers of the Mi-28 proposed to Phazotron to develop a supra-sleeve radar "like that of Longbow" back in the early 2000s. But Phazotron refused, saying that the vibrations there are too big, everything is very complicated, and in general they like the Ka-54 (hello to those who like to write about the "Milevskoe lobby"). And the process would have died out altogether, if not the Ryazan people. The Ryazan Radio Plant was defined as a serial one for this radar, but realizing that the Phazotron was skipping the topic, they took up the development themselves. They had no experience of such work at all. Nobody in Russia had it. And honor and praise to them that they did not quit, that they coped, that they broke through the problems that were growing like a lump. We made one version, then a second. And finally, the serial one. But the development history is VERY long there.

      For this, the well-being of citizens must grow ... and they will allow themselves regional flights. The minimum wage in the USA and Europe is 2000 $, and in Russia it is 13000 rubles. A helicopter (plane) costs + - the same as kerosene.

        Everything is the same with salaries, but do not forget that in addition to salaries in the USA and Europe, there is a different cost of goods and services, that is, the cost of 'living'. many items are several times more expensive than ours, you can easily see for yourself. So not everything there is so fabulous, but undoubtedly it is more satisfying and prosperous.

          Not a fact .... Loans are cheaper, savings are not depreciated, houses are not more expensive for sure, cars are cheaper. Health costs, yes, but if you work, they are covered by insurance. Moreover, with work experience of 5 years, insurance for the whole family with teeth and prosthetics. Food is the same money.

    Mi-28NM - highly efficient all-weather attack helicopter new generation,


    Of course, this is a new, deeply modernized version, but nevertheless, the helicopter that made its first flight on November 10, 1982 - almost 40 years ago - can hardly be called a new generation helicopter.

      Well, nevertheless, technology should not reckon with prototypes, but still with the first production car.
      And then the Apache - will be considered age since 1975, when its first flight prototype took off.

      The thing is different.
      Why the same Apache was originally made all-weather and round-the-clock, and ours needed to realize this business from 1977 to 1996, because the Mi-28 was originally planned with "daytime" avionics ...

      And the war in Afghanistan and the Iran-Iraq war, and the Arab-Israeli war and the ending of Vietnam, And Angola with South Africa, And the Falklands, and Yugoslavia, and NATO against Iraq and Chechnya - helicopters were used everywhere.
      Combat helicopters and their night use.
      And only in 1996 they decided to upgrade for "night use".
      Immediately, in Soviet times, this could not have been foreseen?

        Why do you think so? You probably take the concept of an attack helicopter based on the Mi-28 of the mid-24s for the "originally Mi-70". So you are wrong. This concept was not implemented further than in concepts, and it was an all-weather and round-the-clock attack helicopter that was put up for the 1980 competition. No other Mi-28 has ever been developed.
        But when the Kamovites entered the competition with their fantastic one-seater B-80 and the most powerful lobby at the level of the Ministry of Defense, even the successful flight tests of the Mi-28 prototype could not overcome the personal interest of "responsible comrades".
        On September 18, 1985, at the Smolino range of the Main Missile and Artillery Directorate in Gorokhovets, within the framework of the second stage of the State comparative flight tests, flights to assess the combat effectiveness of the B-80 and Mi-28 helicopters began.
        Each helicopter was supposed to perform 45 flights. The Milevites worked out the program in full: by May 20 of the following year, they managed to complete 38 flights, of which 21 were valid, they carried out 39 ATGM launches (28 Attack missiles and 11 Shturm missiles), including 25 credits, which gave 23 hits the Kamovtsy could not really do anything. The Shkval complex did not work as expected, the Vikhr ATGM was supplied individually and intermittently, completed only 20 flights (9 credits) and only 12 launches. As eyewitnesses said, "with a controversial result." Nevertheless, the "customer's specialists", without waiting for the end of the comparative tests, on the basis of theoretical calculations came to the conclusion that the B-80 has "greater development prospects and requires lower costs for the creation and maintenance of a helicopter group." But, since nothing was firing at the Kamovites and did not work properly by that time, their lobbyists were afraid to decide to completely close the Mi-28 project. On the other hand, funding was cut significantly. As a result, a decision was made, strange and not logical in essence, but perfectly characterizing the conditions of the competition and the personal qualities of the Kamov "curators": the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Council of Ministers of the USSR issued a Resolution of December 14, 1987... on completion of work on Mi-28 and the beginning of serial production at the Rostov helicopter plant. But not a full-fledged, but a "daytime" version of the Mi-28A. That is, the development of a full-fledged machine was stopped, but there were no daredevils to take responsibility for Kamov's failure. And only as a further modernization was planned the "night" version of the Mi-28N, capable of fight in adverse weather conditions at any time of the day.
        It turned out that the Milevites were forced by their labor to provide greenhouse conditions for their own competitors. But this did not help the Kamov team either. The end of the competition was postponed and postponed, the B-80 or Ka-50 did not work and did not work properly. In addition, in 1997 and 1998, there were two accidents with overlapping propellers ...
        And they made it to 1992. And in 1993, capturing the futility of the very concept of the Mi-28A, Weinberg (GK MVZ) decided to stop working on it and return to the original all-weather and round-the-clock version.

        Here is the answer why the US Apache is initially all-weather and round-the-clock, while the Mi-28 is not.

      There really is almost a new helicopter. New PNK, completely redesigned. A new missile system, including at least 2 new missiles - a heavy ATGM and that one :). All the stuffing was shoveled from scratch to service the radar. Now the helicopter has three guidance channels and this is a new generation for the domestic helicopter industry. In about 5 years the Ka-54 will pull up, and our Armed Forces will have a modern combat helicopter.

        As is the case with other modernized weapons. For example, the F-16V also has many changes, but no one says about it that this is a new generation aircraft.
        Aircraft of the new generation only F-35 (the other, in my opinion, is not entirely successful)
        Or the Su-35 - the aircraft is undoubtedly successful and better than the previous versions, but only one more "plus" for the existing generation, and not the aircraft of the new generation. Su-57 undoubtedly - yes.

          In aircraft technology before Penguin, no one had ever divided technology into generations. and the normal clear definition of the "fifth generation" does not exist anywhere except for the advertising booklets of the US military-industrial complex and their own newspapers.
          And the Mi-28M receives not an expansion of existing capabilities, but a number of new ones. The range is significantly increased, missiles with seeker, a completely different sighting system. The ideology of application changes fundamentally.

    The Mi-28NM is a highly efficient all-weather attack helicopter of a new generation, designed to perform a wide range of missions.

    Without the 3rd generation ATGM, which has a "fire-and-forget" mode, the effectiveness remains reduced.
    The Mi-28 is good at chasing bearded men in Syria, but against a more serious opponent with military air defense, it is very vulnerable at the moment of escorting the missile to the target.

      hi
      At least - the rate is already 300 per year. In the future, they want to increase it to 500 per year.
      Here's some interesting information:

      https://военное.рф/2021/Одк1/
      In December 2020, it was reported that the current production plans of UEC-Klimov envisage the annual production of more than 300 engines of the VK-2500 family, and in the future it is planned to accelerate the pace to 500 units per year.

                  These engines are recognized as dual-use and can be installed on combat turntables. So to Russia from Ukraine is a taboo.
                  Therefore, ours are going to rivet up to 500 per year. We'll see.
