Among the other upgrades, Mi-28NM will have over its predecessor is the ability to launch mini-drones from its modular мιssιʟᴇ launch tubes, TASS stated in an earlier report.

The helicopter is capable of performing a wide range of functions including reconnaissance, tагɡet designation, and “the deѕtгᴜсtіoп of ground and air targets.”
