Iraq received another batch of Russian Mi-28HE


“The combat vehicles delivered under the contract between Russia and Iraq have increased maneuverability and accuracy in hitting targets,” the release said.

It is noted that "these helicopters will make a great contribution to the support of ground forces in conducting operations to eliminate the positions of terrorists and destroy armored vehicles filled with explosives."

Earlier, the representative of the joint operations command of the Iraqi security agencies Rasul al-Zubaydi told the agency that the Mi-28НЭ (“Night Hunter”) and Mi-35 helicopters received during the implementation of the agreement “play a significant role in freeing the country from the Islamic State terrorist group” .

        Iraq buys weapons ... No sense! The Kurds do not buy, but the result is not bad! You know what I mean ..? In Syria there, support goes of course to the Russian Aerospace Forces, but they are coming slowly and yet! Iraq is a war against themselves (the United States so tuned them ..)))) Iraq, Libya there are no such states for a long time! (Ukraine is the same canoe))))

          Why not? There is more sense there than Assad's in key territories in Syria:
          - Baiji, the largest oil refinery in the entire region, was recaptured, and there was nothing left of the plant, but the Caliphate left for the mountains to the north.
          - Tikrit was repulsed, the Caliphate's support in Salah Ah-Din and the sword over Baghdad.
          - the 30 km zone around Baghdad was completely cleared (before that, the Caliphate was there, constantly attacked the airport and Abu Ghraib, and mobile groups operated in the Sunni regions). Let me remind you that in Damascus itself now Yarmouk near the Caliphate, several surrounding areas near Zeleny, the embassy quarter and the center are fired from mortars. Around Damascus there are enclaves of broads of all stripes, some of whom feel great from the first days of the war.
          - Ramadi was recaptured, the center of Anbar province.
          - Stripped Fallujah, a Sunni and rebel center in central Iraq.
          - the threat of the fall of Sammara was completely removed (and if Black had taken it and started cutting Shiite shrines, the war could have flared up already on a global Sunni-Shiito scale.

          In fact, the Caliphate is driven north into the province of Nineyw. In Salah-Ah-Din, it is almost gone, Anbar is now being cleaned.

          For the authorities - the whole North is lost, there are mainly pro-Turkish Kurds of Barzani, who have already deployed a Turkish base and generally openly say that they will meet the Iraqi army with fire.

          Most of Nineywa and the second largest city of Mosul. But there, after stripping Anbar, an offensive will begin.

          Here is the difference - it was / became clear!

    My opinion while Iraq is under the "Exclusive" is not worth it to supply them with modern weapons in order to avoid parsing to the screw of our turntables, they would have supplied better Mi-24, it is also well suited for ironing Afghan barmaley proved this.
    But in our case, the loot rules the world sad

      Under exclusive Iran?

      Americans began to lose polymers when they held the first democratic elections. They did not take into account that Shiites are stupid anymore, as a result, Shiites came to power. And from that time onwards, this has not changed (or rather, it has shifted towards Iran, Iranian units are in Samarra, Sulejmani led in Fallujah and Shiite brigades were a battering ram, and national heroes - the same Iraqi Rambo Abu Azrail - fiercely drown for Iran). Only the leadership’s degree of pro-Iranianism is changing, that is, the current prime minister, not so pro-Iranian as the past, but there Maidan sluggish from Mukhtad As Sadr goes, if he breaks through to the stool, then Americans can be retraced from Baghdad.

      They have military cooperation with the United States, but also for bucks, most recently on a market basis. Plus, Iraq constantly shows that it does not suit him, that the Americans do not consult enough with the government in Baghdad, on their decisions, about Iraq.

      If anything, the new batch of Mi-28NE is different in that it is a UB machine (298 product) - that is, it has full dual control.

        And why did they come up with separate control, if there is an opportunity to duplicate it? Is there really such a benefit in production that you can risk the survival of the machine and, accordingly, the crew?

          This is the architecture of the board, which has not changed since the first Mi-28, but then everything could not be accommodated, so the USSR Ministry of Defense still softened the requirements for dual control.

    What is the problem? If they don't buy "Night Hunters" - they buy "Appaches", what will be better for us?
    Iraq has enough petrodollars. Buy what they want. And it’s good that our helicopters and planes are buying.
    The more different kinds of relationships, the better mutual understanding.

      The Apaches are doubtful - they need the turntables yesterday (and when the contract was concluded, there was a real priest in the country, the Caliphate was on a victorious March and everyone was wondering if Baghdad would stand up to the end of the year), and Apache should wait in line. Hindus will only get their first in 2019, for example (The first helicopter is likely to be handed over to India in the next three to four years.).

      Therefore, they didn’t have much choice from the new ones. Only the Tiger / Augusta, but the projects have strong production problems (in fact, a small series in Augusta, a lot of jambs and dopilka on the living in the Tigers).

      Only Rostvertol was able to give them quickly new turntables.

      Here is a used car from Cobra to all sorts of Links and Mi-24.

      They refused to retrofit, make a separate Mi-28NM board - initially with dual controls, radar, new capabilities, avionics, etc.

      By the end of 2017, they must close the tests and conclude a contract.

    From bmpd:
    As the user of the social network Twitter @BabakTaghvaee reports, on June 28, 2016, the Iraqi army aviation received from Russia another batch of Mi-28NE combat helicopters manufactured by Rostvertol. Probably, these are the last four helicopters under the contracts of 2012-2013, and in the export version with double control "item 298" and in a new dark color. Also helicopters are equipped Radar N025E... Our blog has already informed about the tests of these machines "product 298" for Iraq in Rostov-on-Don. Thus, Iraq received all ordered 15 helicopters Mi-28NE - 11 in the original version "product 2941" and four in the version "product 298
