Iraq gets Next Batch of Russian Helicopters

By John Lee.

The Iraqi Ministry of Defence has taken delivery of another consignment of Russian Mi-28NE attack helicopters.

The shipment is part of a deal agreed in 2012, and reported to involve 28 Mi-35M and 15 Mi-28NE helicopters.

IHS Jane’s 360 reports that helicopters from the previous consignments have been seen flying over Baghdad, but it is unclear if they have been used in action.
