    I wonder if there are any statistics on the combat use of MI-28 in Iraq?
    I heard they have been there for a long time, and Iraq is a country fighting at the moment.

      Yes, they fly, mostly NARs are working on guidance from the Eurocopter / Bell / UAV paired with the Mi-35.

      I know a good job for them in the district of Mosul. Classic targets for such turntables: tank columns, bronitechnika. You need to fly at a low altitude .. Eh bortavaya over sleeve radar would be useful sad How much can you bring to mind? It was shown for the first time in the "Striking Force" program back in 2007. crying

        There the air defense is covered, do not get through, knocked down. Only PTRC in Iraq has at least some chances (if you get there), but the only supplier of PTRC for Iraq today is Iran.

          That’s the ball itself, but what’s the question .. Nowhere was it heard about using these machines at night, Apache mattresses equipped with this station are used on the contrary mostly at night (the video on the network is full), this dramatically reduces the risk of losses and gives greater efficiency applications (all logistics mainly at night). It is possible that the import models are imported, but again there is no information about the nighttime use of MI-28 in Iraq, hence the conclusion flies with a dummy ..

            If they do not talk about use, this does not mean that they are not used for their intended purpose. Or are you an employee of the General Staff of the Russian Federation? once possess such data.

          You can never be sure of a XNUMX% guarantee of such investments. The USSR also invested in the development of allies, and I'm not talking about investments in national republics, considering both of them investments in itself. And where are these investments now?

            I agree. The risk is enormous. It must be understood that with the end of the extreme sortie, the war will not end. The biggest battle will begin for who will be after Assad. I am sure that candidates for this post are already being prepared. The Americans, respectively, are now preparing their candidates.

      Iraq bought a long time ago, paid the money. Syria did not buy, and the final decision on the operation was made six months ago (on a preparatory basis), before that, Russia maintained a moratorium on the supply of new equipment, the same Syrian Yak-130 stood up, and the finished ones were dismantled according to orders, altered to requirements.

      And the question of the need for the Mi-28N SAR is open, they would need more Mi-24Vs in service. Yes Mi-8. Hi-tech is not really needed there.

    This is certainly good, but Iraq has no political and no special military power to engage in open confrontation with the Turks to oust them from its territory. Now Sadamich would be if he were in the Turks without much talk ... would give them a break ...

      donavi49 12 December 2015 09: 46
      So, Iraq stupidly nothing to pick up the Turks. Even a relatively small contingent.

      Sadamki had the Scuds - present-day Iraq does not.
      Sadamka had an old but mass aircraft - present-day Iraq has 10-12 Rooks and 4 F-16 + All kinds of sesna.

      There are no other methods to get to 170 km. It doesn’t come out to the north either, now the northern group of forces of Iraq and the Shiites are repelling powerful counterattacks on Baiji. At the moment, they have lost the dominant height and thermal power plants, the battles are quite intense, with tanks and artillery.

      And here is a photo of the Turkish base in Nineiva.

    I think that this action (supply of helicopters) will simplify the Iraqi government the problem of clearing its territory from foreign ground troops.

    When will Iraq already understand where reliable partners are, and where are selfish, selfish aggressors?

    I wonder why ISIS is formed where the Americans have been. In Iraq, in Libya, in Syria, even in Afghanistan.

      Because in Syria they - Mi-28s are not particularly needed now. For work on the militants of Daesh and all kinds of "moderate opposition" (would someone else explain what this is? wassat ) quite old enough, but tested by time and battles, Mi-24/35, coupled with Mi-8. If only there were more of them, and there were no problems with the supply of ammunition, the provision of up-to-date intelligence and targeting, as well as the training of crews.
      And when the real need arises in Mi-28 in Syria, I am sure that these helicopters will appear there (possibly even with crews). And there is money to pay for them.
      I have the honor.

    Comments of the inhabitants. We subtracted the characteristics of the helicopter in the media and some data from the situation and such specialists are all, we will defeat all with two helicopters. Where does this naivety come from? When I was still a kid, I heard a phrase from an Afghan: "There is a huge difference between being in a war and fighting." Then he was convinced himself. And here the whole country is experts ... Sorry for the confusion.

    Of course, two helicopters are not enough to drive out the Turkish group of interventionists. And judging by the way Iraq began to cry bitterly at the UN like "the world community! Save, help" it will not come to using these Mi-28s. Saddamich would have applied, no questions asked. For all his faults, he had character.
    The military forces of a foreign country invaded the territory of your country! Ay, the leadership of Iraq! What could be the UN? !! This is the seizure of the territory of the country, which you are led by the people to lead. What else is needed?

    Mi 28 - night and without radar, like Apache. Neither thermal sensors stand and NV glasses are used. Radar is an additional option for early warning. If the coordinates of the Turkish base are known and there is no F16 cover from the territory of Turkey, then the destruction of them is a matter of one air raid at night. From 5-6 km, shoot with anti-aircraft guns and work off nurses on tanks and buildings.

      Catch Hawk corps and fall into the territory controlled by the IG, where the department of creative executions is already waiting?

      Yes, and you should not consider the Turkish military idiots, they almost certainly allocated an F-16 squadron to cover the base from Turkey, plus they provided an airfield for the base itself, plus Turkey has its own AWACS and radio intelligence systems.

      It is extremely unlikely to conduct a covert operation, that is, to fall like snow on his head. Especially for Iraqis. And if there is no suddenness factor, then at least the Mi-28N, at least 4 F-16s with AIM-9, at least all 10 Su-25s will fall on the heads of the ISS broads, providing their cinema with work for a month.

      Here is a Scud or Shahab-1/3, if you point it exactly, then it won’t come out in any way. Even if the Americans help, as the Saudi army has shown, 21 Patriot missiles are needed to confidently defeat 1 Scud.

    This couple as a hunter could smash the whole shaitan Turkish camp of tanks and people on the Iraqi border in snot. Well, talk a little bit with the UN, then it would be possible to do so completely. Perdogan is not alone in atrocities!
