Iraq receives second batch of Mi-28s

The Iraqi Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 1 February that it had taken delivery of a second consignment of Mil Mi-28NE attack helicopters.
It released a video showing two Mi-28s being unloaded from an Antonov An-124.
The MoD confirmed on 30 August 2014 that it had received the first consignment. Although these helicopters have been seen flying over Baghdad since then, it is unclear if they have been used in action as yet.
It was announced in October 2012 that Iraq had ordered over 40 Mi-28NE and Mi-35M helicopters.
