Among the other upgrades, Mi-28NM will have over its predecessor is the ability to launch mini-drones from its modular мιssιʟᴇ launch tubes, TASS stated in an earlier report.

Moreover, the aircraft will be able to communicate with other classes of drones such as the Korsar and Outpost-R (both medium-weight drones) “…both through the automated command post of агmу aviation and directly between the helicopter and the drone.”
