RUSSIA is developing a brand new attack helicopter that will replace their previous Mi-24 and Mi-35 models, sparking fears the power nation is preparing for World War 3.
Moscow is developing the new combat chopper for the Airborne Force’s helicopter-mobile units, Tass news agency reports. The helicopters will be a follow up of Russia’s previous Mi-24 and Mi-35 models, a source from the domestic defence industry said. The source told the state-run news agency: “In the interests of the Airborne Force’s helicopter-borne units of the new type, work has been stepped up to upgrade the existing helicopters and develop a principally new helicopter – the airborne combat vehicle.” The source added that the chopper would “conceptually develop the Mi-24-Mi-35M helicopters”.
The source also said the new helicopter would be the mainstay of the entire fleet of Russian helicopters.
The news follows claims Russia is stockpiling a deadly arsenal of missiles that poses one of the biggest global threats to the US and NATO.
Swedish military chiefs have said Vladimir Putin’s regime is modernising its weapons and beefing up its military strength as it challenges Donald Trump.
New warships and fighter jets are replacing older aircraft and naval vessels as Moscow ramps up military manoeuvres despite US and NATO objections, according to a report from the Swedish Military Intelligence and Security Service (MUST).
According to MUST chief Gunnar Karlson, Russian weapons “have not become more, but they have become better” as Moscow bolsters its military presence in the Baltic Sea.
The MUST report said: ”There are few signs today that the parties are ready to approach each other to handle existing security challenges.”
Russia’s high-explosive Iskander missile, which can carry nuclear warheads, is causing greatest panic with Swedish military top brass.
In the report, China is also identified as a threat to Sweden.
Beijing is rolling out its Polar Silk Road policy by developing Arctic shipping routes opened up by global warming. The Communist regime’s plan is to build global infrastructure designed to increase Chinese influence around the world.
