"The Ramenskoye Bureau is creating avionics for the Mi-28NM helicopter. The first pilot examples have been delivered to the customer in 2015," Brenerman said.

According to him, the Mi-28NM avionics differs from the existing system in being lighter and smaller and having an "all-glass cockpit." In addition, it uses high-speed optic communication lines between the system subunits and has an expanded capability for using new weapon types.

Also, the avionics of the upgraded Nochnoi Okhotnik -"Night Hunter"- interacts with the helicopter armaments and unmanned aerial vehicles. In addition, it has a helmet-mounted target designation and indication system.

Creation of the Mi-28NM began in 2009. The upgraded version essentially differs from its prototype. The component package of the Mi-28NM onboard radar equipment will include an innovative helmet-mounted target designation and indication system. The helicopter is fitted with new N025 radar enabling all-round surveillance. The flying vehicle is fitted with a new EW suite comprising an anti-missile laser. The helicopter is designed for search and destruction, by day and night in simple and adverse weather conditions, of low-speed air targets, tanks, armored and unarmored hardware and enemy manpower.
