“Digital” Attack from Russia September 11, 2019


The official testing of Russia’s first “digital” gunship, the MI-24P-1M equipped with new generation onboard electronic equipment will be completed within a year’s time, a representative for the Russian Defence Ministry contractor's company KRET said.
"The Russian Defence Ministry created a technical task for us. According to this document, we made the first model of the upgraded MI-24P-1M. We have already taken the vehicle from the military unit. Almost everything here is upgraded” the KRET representative said.
Earliest versions of these gunships were commissioned in 1976. The weapon control system of the platform, which was updated with the communication devices, cabin and navigation systems, was also included in this modernization. The helicopter was equipped with full-cycle autopilot, self-controlled search and destroy system. Digital gunship was presented at the recently concluded MAKS-2019 air show.
