The media reported the recent deployment to Syria of attack helicopters Ka-52 alligator and Mi-28N “Night hunter”. This is a good addition to the squadron (12 attack helicopters Mi-24, Mi-35 and Mi-8), which is already in force in Syria since the beginning of the operation. Our newest helicopters can operate effectively in both day and night. And here, of course, important not only their tactical and technical characteristics, but also flying skills of the crews that operate them. Unlike Americans of our helicopter pilots are taught to act under conditions of limited nighttime visibility.And equal to them in airmanship, there is no one in the world. It’s no coincidence that in the UN peacekeeping mission, it was the Russian helicopter air group invited most often.
