Media: The party of Russian helicopters "Night Hunter" arrived in Iraq

29



A consignment from 13 of modern Mi-28HE “Night Hunter” helicopters produced by the Russian Helicopters holding company arrived in Umm Qasr port in the south of Iraq, the Al-Sumariya TV channel reported.

The channel said that the Russian military equipment will be used in the anti-terrorist operation in the province of Anbar in the west of the country. According to him, this is already the second batch of Mi helicopters that have recently entered service with the Iraqi army. Earlier, 15 of such machines arrived in Iraq, ITAR-TASS reports.

In autumn 2013, the first group of Iraqi pilots and technicians completed training at the Army Combat Use Center aviation in Torzhok.

Baghdad will receive a total of 40 Mi-28HE and Mi-35 helicopters, which it expects to use to guard the borders and fight terrorists in Iraqi territory. The contract worth 4,2 billion dollars for the supply of military products by Russia was signed during the visit of the President of Iraq to Moscow in 2012.

      It was easier in SyShyA to directly provide one sample of the latest weapons of Russia directly. But for internal use "saved face".
      Although I would say face muzzle!

      Bullshit


      Baghdad will receive a total of 40 Mi-28NE and Mi-35 helicopters


      Well, firstly not 40, but 36 units of MI-28NE

      secondly, all 6 units of MI-35M have already been delivered by AN-124 aircraft - first 4 at the end of December, the remaining 2

      thirdly, it’s all a propaganda campaign (I think)

      - lead helicopters by sea - do not tell me, Rosvertol delivers all its copies only by air - exception 3 Venezuelan mi-26t

      -they were not illuminated not at the Rosvertol plant either during test flights, that is, there were 13 invisible helicopters? and even with a sub-bus radar, or during the ferry to the port (if they were supposedly transported by sea)


      According to him, this is the second batch of Mi helicopters, recently received by the Iraqi army. Earlier, another 15 such vehicles arrived in Iraq, ITAR-TASS reports.


      Journalists wink what is the second batch - if the first mi-35m arrived in December

      23 helicopters (mi-28ne) invisible - the usual dumb throw-up to scare the Sunnis

      PS-Administrators, the guys need to check the information for authenticity, and not shove some rumors and speculation, otherwise people already purred for joy

        I’ll support it, it’s some kind of muddy, can we get the second batch of the 35s to be quiet? They don’t care about journalism at all, and even then Arabic ... So, without photo-facts it is not considered that they sent and whether anything was sent at all.

        There is no talk about BTR-82A so far. These are all rumors and conjectures of grandmas at the fence.

      So one would have to rejoice if these helicopters were handed over to their Air Force ... and even when it no longer climbs, it is possible to go abroad. Economy damn ....
      By the way, at least they will pay the contract, or all on credit? ..

    It is certainly good, but I am more than sure that now they will be immediately tested and compared with the "Apaches". Therefore, I wish that our "Hunters" would surpass the "Indians" and that the Americans would strangle themselves with envy ...

          Not for a long time. Left behind from life. There is a maximum instructor of the new Iraqi army and then private traders. All equipment was brought back in the first half of the 2011 year. Officially, Obama fulfilled the promise by the end of the year, there are 200 marines, from the reinforced detachment of the Embassy and that's all.

          By the way, many Humvees and other equipment used by the new Iraqi army were donated by the Americans when they left, for it was expensive for them to take home with the killed resource.

        I don’t know about the lungs, but in recent days the Iraqis lost 2 helicopters, at least a photo of one shot down helicopter was published, and judging by the photos, you can’t name the turntable easy.

    There is now flaring up. Sunnis revolted. ISIS militants from Syria began to return home, carry the eternal to their native Iraq.

    Fallujah - under black flags and calls of all the faithful to the war against Shiite Nuliki.
    Anbar - heavy fighting throughout the city, the army and police were knocked out of the center.
    There were heavy battles in Rammadi yesterday, more than 100 corpses per day, army men left the city, 3 / 4 were occupied by radical groups.

    Mi-35 and Sesna with Helfaery work constantly. Soon Mi-28Н will have to see. For if you do not crush, then Baghdad is nearby.

        And this is how the Americans have done this more than once, having discovered the shortcomings of our machines, they inflated them very much in front of our potential customers ...

    Well, in addition to helicopters, in accordance with the contract, another 48 Pantsir C1 air defense missile systems were to be delivered to Iraq.

    It seems that negotiations were underway to supply the latter with MiG-29M / M2 fighters and armored vehicles, but their details are still unknown.
    In addition, in June 2013, the parties signed a contract to supply Iraq with Ka-52 combat helicopters. A preliminary agreement on the supply of these machines was also reached in October 2012.
    http://www.arms-expo.ru/049051124051051053053057.html

    And in the light, the fiasco with the Ukrainian BTR-4, Iraqis, allegedly actively interested in the BTR-2013A during the RAE-82 exhibition in Nizhny Tagil

    Moreover, they already have BTR-80-100 BTR-80, delivered by Ukraine and Hungary.

    As if with the outbreak of the civil war, this contract for 4 lards was not covered with a copper basin, as with Libya. And then on the supply of helicopters everything will end.

      In the near future, it will be decided whether it will be suppressed quickly or whether the civil war will begin to gain momentum. Guard units go to Fallujah, Ramadi and Anbar.

      The third battle for Fallujah will begin soon.

      You read the comments and do the analysis, comparing the facts, apparently not?

      I repeat that it’s reached until the Rosvertol plant releases a single MI-28NE under the Iraqi contract

      about camouflage, it will probably be identical to the MI-35M delivered in December (pictured)

    The main characteristics of the Export and for their own Armed Forces practically do not differ (except for identification, and other electronics) a good gift for the Americanos - they will be happy to evaluate and compare the characteristics of the Mi-28NE with the Apaches, and they will immediately dig into our missiles (yes, you need to understand that in Iraq there is practically no army of its own - SO To whom do we sell modern equipment !!!!)
