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.
