Russia’s new Mi-28NM attack helicopters have been spotted over the special military operation zone in Ukraine for the first time.
On January 10, footage showing two Mi-28NM flying along the frontline surfaced online. One of the helicopters was armed with a Lightweight Multifunction Missile (LMUR), also known as the Izdeliye 305. The missile was loaded on a APU-L twin launcher.
The Mi-28NM is the latest upgrade to the Mi-28 attack helicopter. The upgrade includes powerful VK-2500P engines, improved rotor blades, a new fire-control system and an onboard radio-electronic data processing system.
The LMUR, which was developed by the Kolomna Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering, is the main armament of the upgraded helicopter.
The missile is equipped with an GLONASS-aided inertial navigation system, an optical thermal imaging homing seeker and a two-way secured data-link. The maximum range of the missile is said to be around 15 kilometers. It is armed with a high-explosive warhead weighing 25 kg.
The Russian military has been using LMUR missiles against Kiev forces since the start of the special operation in Ukraine. However, this was the first time Mi-28NM helicopters have been spotted near the frontline there.
It’s worth noting that the LMUR missile can be also launched from upgraded Mi-8MNP-2 and Ka-52M helicopters. A ground-based launcher for the missile was also once in development.
The Russian military is currently working to upgrade nearly all of its attack helicopters. Last year, a plan to upgrade all Mi-28N helicopters to the NM standard was approved. The production of Ka-52M is also underway. The first batch was delivered earlier this month.

when can we attack africa and israel, semites and africans are the scum of the earth, without jews this war would never be
Jews instigated this, and managed it from all sides. They love seeing Slavs and gentiles die. Zelensky, Nuland, Soros, Kolomoisky, Blinken. and Soros laid the groundwork for this whipping the stupid Ukrainians into a frenzy over petty differences. And Jews in America clamor for more support Sean Penn, monkey faced Ben Stiller, Merrick Garland, etc…
Africans will massacre NATO, they are no friends of NATO
Admit the German Nazi had it right then.
Palestinians are real Semites, Khazars are not.
Word “Jews” was invented in 18th century and today is used by Khazars.
So Palestinians – the real Semites are not danger for our Planet Earth.
Correct. Still peoples know nothing about the history and real facts of ‘jews’. Very sadly. That is the main reason why now hundreds of thousands are killed in UkroReich, both sides…….
NATO scum will be there soon in their hundreds of tanks, thousands of armored vehicles, hundreds of thousands of expendable troopers… And ten or twenty times more are on the move. How is Russia going to destroy all this flood of death going over the place? China, Saudis and Iran and North Korea and even Africa lands should come quick to help otherwise the USSA rule will take them one by one and the whole world will be a single Soviet like plantation ruled from Wall Street.
quite simply, the Russians will incinerate all of NATO and then the gutless wimps who wanted to fight Russia can choose either a valiant suicide, or give up. In all such scenarios, they surrender and beg for their lives
Mr. Lavrov said this ‘ Zelensky is a Jewish ‘
The Winter is comming. For kiev and zelensky. Startup in the end of this month. Russian Heavy missiles and very heavy new bombs are comming.
Sorry, but they ran out weeks ago. That is why they need to use cheap Iranian drones. Sure, they can product a few here and there while their stockpile of western parts draws down. Then, Kaput.
Rusians run out of everything in March. Western media told us. And we believe everything.
Last year you mean, right?
I wonder what percent of parts come from the West? 85%? 90? Nah, probably closer to 95%.
Just a quick question: why is it when i open like this article, the sources are always not available? (PAGE NOT FOUND)
To the Ukrops: everything you Thought you knew, is about to become irrelevant
