The new invention is an integral element of the Mi-28NM – the younger brother of the Mi-28N. The improved Night Hunter is an all-weather gunship, capable of operating at any time of day or night. Russian engineers have been developing it since 2009. The helicopter is passing its final trials.

The Mi-28NM will boast a modern navigation and reconnaissance system. Its steering unit will provide for a blind landing.

Its manufacturer, the Ryazan Instrument-Making Enterprise also presented the airborne radar Irbis used in generation 4++ Su-35S fighters as well as laser guidance systems for Ka-52 attack helicopters.

The manufacturer’s CEO also pointed out that the enterprise was participating in the creation of avionics for Sukhoi T-50 PAK FA jets.
