Here’s an interesting recruitment video for the Iraqi Army SOF (Special Operation Force).

Among the other things, it shows some Mi-25 Hind attack helicopters and some Mi-8/17 Hip choppers used to transport Special Teams.

According to some recent news reports, Iraq expects to receive around 40 Mi-35 and Mi-28NE attack helicopters from Russia (the first 13 Russian“Night Hunter” helicopters have already arrived in Iraq), mainly for border patrol and antiterrorist operations.

Furthermore, under the framework of a deal which includes 48 Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile gun systems, Russia would also supply Iraq with Ka-52 single-seat attack helicopters.
