"As part of the development work, a multifunction image processing system and an upgraded laser guidance system for guided weapons is being developed. Both products are different from previously available analogues, with a whole range of upgraded technical characteristics in accordance with the required technical specifications and the best possible solution for issues of import substitution," Pavel Budagov told RIA Novosti.

The Mi-28NM is a modernized version of the Mi-28N Night Hunter attack helicopter that is being upgraded to a fifth-generation aircraft, which has been in development since 2008. Deliveries of first-series production batch of 20 Mi-28N combat helicopters to the Russian armed forces are being completed, and a tentative procurement goal of 167 helicopters has been formulated.

Since the beginning of the development, Russia had received more than 10 export orders for helicopters of this type.
