|Engines||2*2200hp Isotov TV-3-117VM|
A two-seat attack helicopter, smaller than the Mi-24 and better optimized for the anti-tank role. The Mi-28 has two heavily armored cockpits, a remarkable nose full with electronic equipment, and a narrow-X tail rotor. The competing Ka-50 seems to have been selected by the Russian forces.
Recent situation - Mi-28 is going to be manufactured, but as an advanced complement for Ka-50 : night operation, mission leader etc., where role of operator became more crucial.
