The main content of this program: armed helicopters are helicopters that are equipped with weapons and are developed to perform combat tasks. They are divided into special-purpose and multi-purpose types. The Zhi-10 helicopter is a third-generation armed helicopter independently developed by China. It has good low-altitude performance and combat capabilities, and is known as the "Thunderbolt". Its deployment has greatly improved the assault and anti-armor capabilities of the PLA Army Air Force.

This one is indeed new, but since you especially noted the helmet was accidentally revealed I wanted to correct this.

Those are not MAWs, they are LWRs, and they have been around forever. Z-10 prototypes already had them installed, and they've been photographed hundreds thousands of times in the years since. How is this new to you?
I see it first time on wing stub! I know they are there but not on wing stub

Did you read what I said? They've always been on the wing stub. Where did you think they were?

Here's an early prototype (with P&W Canada turboshafts) from 14 years ago:
