Russia delivers first two Mi-28NEs to Algeria 2 June, 2016

Two of 42 Russian attack helicopters Mi-28NE (Night Hunter) (NATO reporting name "Havoc) purchased by Algeria were delivered last week

On May 26, two Mi-28NE attack helicopters were delivered at an air base in southern Algeria by a cargo plane Antonov 124. The helicopters are currently being assembled.  To cope with the terrorist threat, Algeria and Russia signed 26 December 2013 a contract for the delivery of 42 Russian attack helicopters Mi-28NE.

Last year, the country has also bought a dozen Russian fighter-bombers Su-32 and Su-34 in the amount of approximately $ 600 million as well as transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A.
