Russia’s Ka-52, Mi-28 Attack Helicopters Can Compete With US Apache


The Russian helicopter-manufacturing industry can successfully compete with foreign rivals, including the United States, Andrei Shibitov, Deputy Director of Russian Helicopter Holding, claimed.

The modern Russian Mi-28 and Ka-52 attack helicopters are comparable with the US AH-64 Apache helicopter in their onboard electronic systems, Andrei Shibitov, Deputy Director of Russian Helicopter Holding, told RIA Novosti.

“Ten years ago some of our systems fell short by 10-15 years, but now I can say that our latest projects are practically comparable with our foreign competitors and colleagues. The hardware of the Mi-28 and Ka-52 is definitely as good as the Apache systems,” Shibitov said on the sidelines of a conference in Tatarstan.
