A new version of the Mi-28UB “Night Hunter” – a modern attack helicopter – will be transported to Russia’s air base in Syria in the coming weeks.
The war machine’s manufacturers are keen to test its modified armor and missiles on the front line.
A military industrial source told RBTH this: “Russian Helicopters [corporation] strengthened the helicopter’s front armor and enhanced its ‘brains.’ ”
So in the very near future, an advanced version of the “battle bird” will be carrying out search and destroy missions against ISIS in the Middle East. One of the chopper’s new features gives full control of the machine to both pilots.
