Russia to Deliver more Military Helicopters

By John Lee.

Russia is preparing to deliver a new batch of highly-sophisticated military helicopters to Iraq late June, according to a report from Kuwait’s KUNA.

The new batch will include Mi-35 (pictured) and Mi-28NE ‘Night Hunter’ attack helicopters, and is part of the $4.2 billion deal signed in 2012.

To date, Baghdad is reported to have received only four Russian-made Mi-35 aircraft from the total of 43 gunships agreed in the contract.

One Response to Russia to Deliver more Military Helicopters

    Dear Sir,
    I would like to know why the Western Countries do not provide Iraq with the weapons! After all, now Iraq is one of the best and trust friends for the Western Countries in the Middle East. When I visited Baghdad recently I found the police and the army were very poor equipped in terms of arms and clothing.
