Russia to Supply Algeria with 40 Mi-28 Attack Helicopters
Local Editor

Russia will deliver 40 Mi-28NE attack helicopters to Algeria in line with a bilateral contract, Interfax news agency said Friday, quoting a source in Russia's arms exporting bodies.

Mi-28 Attack Helicopter

The Mi-28 helicopter, dubbed "Night Hunter" by the Russian military, is said by arms experts to be among the best in the world in its class. It is capable of carrying out missions day and night and in most adverse weather conditions.

The Mi-28NE modification is equipped with a dual-control system, which allows to fly the helicopter both from the pilot's cockpit and from the cockpit of the operator pilot who acts as an instructor.

The source quoted by Interfax gave no details about the helicopter contract with Algeria.

Relatively, the Mil Mi-28 is a Russian all-weather, day-night, military tandem, two-seat anti-armor attack helicopter.

It is a dedicated attack helicopter with no intended secondary transport capability, better optimized than the Mil Mi-24 gunship for the role. It carries a single gun in an under-nose barbette, plus external loads carried on pylons beneath stub wings.
