It is worth noting that in the South of Aleppo there are already units of the Iranian airborne brigade, was recorded movement of Russian heavy artillery systems and MLRS to Aleppo, which is a clear allusion to the coming offensive. Al-Mallaha SAA and Hezbollah already probed the positions of the militants, but it is mostly reconnaissance – the decisive battles of the next stage of the war for Aleppo are yet to come.
This is the first known appearance of authentic Russian combat helicopter of new generation Mi-28N and Ka-52 in Syria.
Throughout Russia’s military involvement in the Syrian conflict it has utilized advanced derivatives of the venerable Mi-24 Hind attack helicopter. This is primarily the Mi-24P model. The Kremlin decided to keep its much more advanced Mi-28 Havoc and Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters at home for the conflict. But now these helicopters have finally shown up.
Russian all-weather, day-night, military tandem, two-seat anti-armor attack helicopter was spotted near Latakia on North of Syria.
The Mi-28 is a new-generation attack helicopter that functions as an air-to-air and air-to-ground partner for the Mi-24 Hind and Ka-50 Hokum.
