ABU DHABI, January 04, 23:49 /ITAR-TASS/. Thirteen Russian Mi-28NE “Night Hunter” helicopters have arrived in Iraq, the Alsumaria television channel said on Saturday, January 4.
It said the helicopters would be used in the counter-terrorism operation in the Anbar Province in the west of the country.
This is the second such shipment to Iraq in recent months. The first one consisted of 15 Mi helicopters, the channel said.
In the autumn of 2013, the first group of Iraqi pilots and technicians completed their training in Russia.
Iraq will receive a total of 40 Mi-28NE and Mi-35 helicopters to be used for guarding the border and fighting terrorists. The 4.2 billion U.S. dollar contract for their supply was signed during the Iraqi president’s visit to Moscow in 2012.
