Description: The Mil Mi-28 was developed as a potential replacement for Soviet Army Mi-24 attack/assault helicopter in the late 1980s. Dubbed 'Havoc' by NATO/Western Intelligence the original Mi-28 was a twin-seat attack helicopter heavier and larger than US Army's AH-64A Apache due to a more effective armor made of titanium and ceramics. The Soviet Union collapse and the Russian turmoil delayed its development and fielding. In the mid-1990s Mil introduced an improved variant equipped with wingtip mounted countermeasures and a mast-mounted millimeter wave radar in addition to the nose radome infrared/laser sight system already introduced on the Mi-28. The new variant was named the Mi-28N and was optimized for night/all-weather attack missions. The maiden flight of Mi-28N occurred in April 1997.

The Mi-28NM Super Hunter is an upgraded variant of the Russian Air Force Mi-28N night hunter attack helicopter. The Mi-28NM modernization program was cleared by the Russian Air Force in late 2008 and its existence was announced on December 26, 2008. The first prototype is expected to take to the air in 2009. The Mi-28NM improvements make the aircraft invulnerable to enemy fire through the addition of the latest composite materiel and the President-S advanced active defense system which can deflect all existing heat-seeking missiles. When the aircraft is illuminated by hostile radar the active defense system creates an invisible fire cloud surrounding the main rotor to deflect the incoming heat-seeking missiles. The helicopter is fitted with the NO25E circular-view radar which provides a dramatic improvement in terms of situational awareness. The Mi-28NM improved rotor blades will increase the top speed to 340 kilometers per hour.
