    The reporters are confusing the deep upgrade program of Mi-28N to Mi-28NM for 5th Gen Program which is a different one.

    5th Gen program envisages High Speed Helicopter program that final goal is to reach speed of 500 km/hr

    The Russians are working in two step to reach that an intermeditate program called Rachel which attains a top speed of 380 km/hr and is a 10T class chopper and replacement for Mi-8/17 and final 450-500 km class chopper that still in R&D phase by Kamov and Mil.

    There are talks of Military 5th Gen stealthy chopper program but its in early stage yet

    It means stealthy, speedy (~500km/h), 360deg aware and network-centric helicopters with 20+km ranged GA smart weapons which are full air-combat capable by sensors and weapons both.
