    Yes, judging by the events in EL-FALUJA, super duper weapons do not always help in promoting democracy in this country.

      They don't have any super weapons. 2-4 Mi-35s, and Bella's light ones, to which less than 10 cannon containers were delivered. Not from a good life, they literally fasten the PC with wire. From Sesna strike aircraft with 2 Mavericks. Moreover, they are scolded for low efficiency, since after the first strike "cockroaches scatter" - and the second is already ineffective, plus the plane is often forced to enter the insurgents' MZA zone.

      Therefore, attack helicopters, attack UAVs they now need as air. Moreover, the turntables seem to be talking about 6 Apaches with crews (mercenaries / chop) for rent before the delivery of Apaches in the future. That is, helicopters can be obtained as quickly as possible and immediately begin operation.

    Why then did they buy MI-28N? Some kind of muddy story.

      The Americans needed the Mi-28 to learn more

        It is unlikely that they will find there something new for themselves.

      Because they ordered Mi-28Н, but they are not there yet, and the uprising is growing, so these Mi-28Н will have no one to supply.

      The ROE is inundated with requests URGENTLY DELIVERING HELICOPTERS, FORMING THE MAXIMUM TRANSFER!

      It’s difficult today to fight in fact, having 4 Mi-35 all over the country and a half dozen Mi-17 who are connected with supply missions, evacuating ISOF troops, and there were already videos where they worked from armored pickups, shot down so far, but not the fact that there waned.

    A little earlier our Mi28s, now "Apaches" ... It seems that our turntables were bought not so much by the Iraqis as by the Americans ... apparently for study.

      To study what, the MI-28N has not yet been delivered. The Americans need to be afraid that their latest weapons might go to Iran and then to Russia, since the Shiite government close to Iran is fighting with the Sunni-Salafi groups supported by the government. Riyadh

      About the news, she was already

      Iraq has long wanted to get Apaches, but the United States did not sell it, but they crushed it by price and didn’t

      recall the prices of the latest AH-64E

      -India 22 helicopters $ 1,3 billion
      -Iraq 24 helicopter $ 4,8 billion

      They now really have no time for politics. The militants are being infiltrated on the outskirts of Baghdad and are no longer just Babakhat as before, but are fighting. Either they will beat the prison and rescue their own, or they will fire at the airport with mortars.

      At the same time, the real mess is in the Sunni triangle, and with poor results for the loyalists. Log in to Ramadi failed. Rebellion widen. Advanced blockade posts are regularly burned with losses. For example, yesterday’s raid on the front post in the south of Fallujah (action last 9 minutes).

        Does this understandably begin the protracted Sunito-Sheid conflict? And where is the nonsense about trying to get the MI-28NE by the Americans? -First, you probably need to find out the history of purchases and the fact that Iraq always originally wanted the AH-64E, but he bought from us from hopelessness

        By the way, there’s not a lot of potent MI-171E, and more than 50+ Tsesna with Helfaery and EC635T2 +, Bell IA-407
        ), as well as Hugh and other jogging boots. There are already 6 MI-35M units in Iraq

        That's why they buy everything and pay live big money + 6 AH-64D helicopters, rent it until the main ones are ready

        ps-some ravings about the US conspiracy to get MI-28NE

          Mi-171 - there are 22 pieces of UAZ produced under the 2009 contract of the year. At the same time, 3 crashed.
          There is also Mi-17 Kazan under the 2006 contract of the year - also 20 pieces, but there are also losses there.

          Saddam's legacy is better not to count.

          For the little things from Bell, there are no teeth. For Eurocopter there are few teeth.

          Mi-35 fly only 4 cars, another 2 will join soon.

          6 Apaches with trained crews, technicians and weapons will really help them out now.

          On procurement for research - the same opinion wink

        They act professionally. It’s immediately obvious that the militants are experienced. Surely from ISIS, who are transferred from Syria.
