Iraq receives Russia MI-28 attack helicopters

Published: Updated:

Iraq has received Russian Mi-28 attack helicopters and will use them against militants who have overrun large parts of the country, the defense ministry said.

While the ministry did not specify how many of the heavily armored two-seat gunships it has received or what it paid for them, a video posted on its website showed a hangar containing multiple desert camouflage-painted Mi-28s, which are capable of all-weather and day and night operation.
