A Night Hunter prepares to take off. The Mi-28N, affectionately known as the Night Hunter in service, is a specialized night attack helicopter of the Russian Air Force. Already a mean helicopter by day, sophisticated sensors were installed, thus making it able to effectively engage and destroy targets in the blackest of nights. (Photo)
A close up look at some Russian 12.7x108mm ammunition in non-disintegrating belts. The RPD and PKM use similar belts but this one, with it’s unique shape is found on two other Russian machine guns; the DShK and the Kord. Based on the shape of the feed tray (and cause I’m looking at my DShK for comparison) the weapon in the photo is a Kord.
