New Mi-28 announced
"The executive Director of the Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, Vitaly Shcherbin, announced recently that final assembly of a new variant of the Mi-28 has just been completed at the factory.
Known as the Mi-28D, the new variant has been optimized for daylight operations, h~nce the new suffix (D for Dnevnoy/day). Shcherbin has stated that the Mi28D is equipped with an identical equipment fit to that of the night-capable Mi-28N (Nochnoy/night), but that it does not have the mast-mounted radar, or TV integrated with the sighting system.
Although not stated, it seems likely that the Mi-28D is intended for the export market and for countries which do not require sophisticated night attack capability."
