  1. Russian jets? An Mi-28 is not even close to a fighter jet. Calling helicopters a jet is an eye sore, please correct this article. Thank you.

  2. Mi-28 is latest attack helicopter and the picture showed is Mi-24 Hind which is good enough to provide air cover to Iraq forces and Iraq pilot used to fly Mi-24 long time.

    Why Iraq want to expensive and takes long time study to fly, Mi-28 Havot?
