Saw on our internal web newspaper tonight that we just won a $1.4 billion contract to supply the Indian army with AH-64 Apache gunships. The competition was the Russian Mi-28. Not being familiar with the Mi-28 I looked it up. It's an evolution of the famous Mi-24, a helicopter I am familiar with. While I would like to think the Boeing helicopter (originally Hughes) is the better machine I have to award the Mi-28 the prize for bad-ass looks. First photo is the AH-64, second photo is the Mi-28.
