The Mi-28NE reportedly use Ataka (NATO designation AT-9 Spiral-2) anti-tank guided missiles with shaped charge warheads, designed to eliminate armored vehicles; the pickups and trucks of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists are pierced through. A number of people can be seen running away from the vehicles in the midst of an attack.

As seen on video, pilots do not target fleeing terrorists.

The targets are engaged from various distances, sometimes well over 5km away, with speeds of the aircraft exceeding 200kph.

On some videos it is clearly visible that terrorists are firing at the helicopters with automatic weapons, though incapable of damaging the armored ‘flying tanks’, which can withstand hits from 12.7mm bullets.
