 Russia is creating a modernized weapons guidance system for its newest Mi-28NM (NATO reporting name “Havoc”) attack helicopter, the head of Russia’s Ryazan State Instrument-Making Enterprise said Thursday.

“As part of the development work, a multifunction image processing system and an upgraded laser guidance system for guided weapons is being developed. Both products are different from previously available analogues, with a whole range of upgraded technical characteristics in accordance with the required technical specifications and the best possible solution for issues of import substitution,” Pavel Budagov told RIA Novosti.

The Mi-28NM is a modernized version of the Mi-28N Night Hunter attack helicopter that is being upgraded to a fifth-generation aircraft, which has been in development since 2008.Since the start of the development, Russia had received more than 10 export orders for helicopters of this type.
