The head of state was shown the latest developments of the enterprise, in particular, the Mi-28UB helicopter. This is a dual-control machine that can be used for piloting the Mi-28Н while maintaining the entire functionality of the attack helicopter.

Combat training helicopter with a double set of controls Mi-28UB, created at the holding’s company - Rostvertol OJSC - based on the combat helicopter Mi-28Н “Night hunter”

Mi-28UB can search and destroy the enemy's equipment and manpower, low-speed air targets at any time of the day, as well as in adverse weather conditions. The main difference between a new combat training vehicle and the Night Hunter is a double hydromechanical control system that allows you to control the helicopter from both the pilot’s cabin and the pilot’s operator’s cabin as an instructor. The instructor's cabin is enlarged, the upper part of the lantern of the pilot's cabin is expanded, the configuration of energy absorbing seats has been changed.
In addition, the plant is upgrading the world's most heavy-duty helicopter, the Mi-26T, in the Mi-26Т2 variant with a reduced number of crew members, a glass cockpit, modern avionics and the possibility of night-time use.

    But I wonder if it is possible to preserve this property on the "ordinary" Mi28 - the possibility of duplicated control, you never know what happens in battle, and it will not be necessary to make a separate modification ...

      And on the Mi-24, carry out modernization and make a cockpit for the pilot and gunner, such as the Mi 28.
      Unification and modernization at the same time as protection for pilots. Yes, and the weight of the product will decrease.

      It is impossible, therefore this modification is made, and a simple modernization is indispensable here !!!

    Can someone explain, I do not understand, but what is it fixed to the gun? In my opinion, this by definition should not be there ...

    In such complex combat systems as MI-28, nothing just happens - this is not AKM.
