Iraq receives four more Russian combat helicopters


The Iraqi Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 2 July that it has taken delivery of four more “advanced combat helicopters” from Russia.

It did not identify the type of aircraft that has been delivered. Iraq currently has Mi-28NE Night Hunter attack helicopters and Mi-35M assault helicopters on order from Russia.

The MoD statement came two days after social media reports that another batch of Mi-35Ms had arrived in the country.
