Good evening. Thank you all for your attention to my photos. And the comments.
This parade May 9, 2013. The Mi-28 (Night Hunter)
Mi-28 (NATO - Havoc, literally - "Devastator")-Russian attack helicopter, designed to find and destroy in the face of strong enemy fire tanks and other armored vehicles and low-speed air targets and enemy
The Mi-28 is capable of: loop the loop, flip Immelman, barrel, flying sideways, flying backwards, sideways at speeds up to 100 km / h, with the reversal of the angular velocity of up to 117 degrees / s, the maximum roll rate of over 100 deg / sec
In case of emergency or catastrophic structural failure at a height of 100 m at first fired off the propeller, wing doors and both cabins, and then are cut with special cutters belts compulsory attracting, inflated special "traps" - ballonets that do not allow the crew to touch the chassis when leaving or rotated the gun and the crew leaves the vehicle with the help of parachutes.
The design of the cabin used highly resistant armor, fully armor-plane-glazing can withstand direct hits armor-piercing bullets caliber 12.7 mm high-explosive projectiles caliber 20 mm, the blade is able to operate in contact with 30 mm shells.
Bronekabina crew so-called "bath", made of 10-mm sheets of aluminum that are glued 16 mm ceramic armor elements. The cab doors are made of fiberglass with aluminum plate and ceramic armor. Windshields cabins are transparent silicate blocks 42 mm, and the side door window glass - of the same block, but a thickness of 22 mm. Cockpit separated from the cab 10-mm aluminum armor plate, which minimizes the loss of both crew members at break-caliber high-explosive incendiary (BFL) shell in one of the cabins. The fuel tanks are filled with polyurethane foam and equipped with self-sealing latex protector.
The Mi-28 is able to fly at extremely low altitudes (up to 5 m) with terrain following. Increased maneuverability of the helicopter, which now can be moved back and sides with a speed of 100 km / h During the "freezing" the total angular velocity of rotation up to 90 degrees per second, and with the yaw rate of a little over 117 deg / sec, the maximum roll rate of over 100 deg / sec.
