    Yes that is the HUD/ILS overlay which is also present on the MFD.

    The 2nd signature made it myself from youtube video to make the 1st one to shoot something. Had no footage/trailer of an Abrams tank getting 3 milimetered, so had to use a Hummve.

    Russian military-industrial sector started the upgrade of Ka-52 Alligator helicopters
    Russian Aviaton » Monday June 8, 2015 17:08 MSK

    Russian military-industrial sector is working on upgrade of avionics suite for the latest Russian Ka-52 helicopter, RIA Novosti reports with reference to Russian Helicopters Deputy CEO Andrei Shibitov.

    “Upgrade of the avionics suite, including radar, is a part of Ka-52 program. The upgrade is in progress,” Shibitov said. The multi-role all-weather Ka-52 Alligator combat helicopter is the two-seat version of Ka-50 Black Shark attack helicopter. It is also powered by other engines, fitted with different equipment and has different shape of its nose.

    Ka-52 is powered by two upgraded VK-2500 engines having a power of 2400 h.p. each. As for its nose, it includes two-seat cockpit with state-of-the-art avionics suite. The cockpit is fitted with ejection seats. Ka-52 may be used for a wide range of missions carried out under any lighting and weather conditions and it is able to use all the weapons used by Ka-50 vehicles. The helicopter is capable of destroying enemy tanks and low-speed aerial targets, carrying out surveillance and providing air support to the army.

    Moreover, Ka-52 is the “command vehicle” of the army aviation able to increase the efficiency of groups of combat helicopters. It is able to control a group of helicopters and act as “think tank” by means of defining targets for each helicopter in the group. In terms of combat capabilities Ka-52 is as good as Ka-50 and АН-64 “Apache” and it outmatches the rest vehicles in its class.

    They will probably buy it without Vitebsk to cut the costs, because the bird is already very expensive not to mention they will need to buy weapons in sufficient numbers, train their personal and acquire spare parts which are also more expensive compared with conventional helicopter designs...i am afraid they will end up like Iraq having birds without MAWS and DIRCM sensor suite...not good for customer and even worse for reputation when a bird gets shot down due the customers short sightedness.

    I don't think so if you look at the latest Algerian Navy acquisition the Super Linx they got them with all the options and "gizmos" (Radar,ASW sonar,Self defence,MAWS sytems,torpedoes ...)

    Those are highly specialized helicopters, they usually tend always to have high degree of specialized defense suite, i doubt they will make it for an Attack Helicopter which costs a fortune. Iraqis have Bell 204/206 with MAW sensors but none for Mi-35M or Mi-28NE, so which of those aircrafts is more likely to face MANPAD/ATAM threats a little observing helicopter with far lower costs, technology or a frontline Close Air Support Aircraft? Algeria is not in the magnitude for such technology they will try to simplify what they can, costs above everything else.

    The buzz from egyptian posters lately has been that they will get Ka-52, so they probably are the first choice. Algeria is still a possibility (like mentioned above maybe for their BDSL) with Iraq a distant third (they both ordered Mi-28, plus Iraq has great difficulty with US blackmail to not buy russian anymore), but on the other hand i'm sure there was news recently about Kazakhstan being interested in Ka-52, am i mistaken here?

    I haven't heard anything regarding Kazakhstan, but Azerbaijani interest in Ka-52 has been known for some time.

    In late 2012 this news appeared on "Azeridefence" about Azerbaijani interest towards Ka-52, and that talks were already underway.

    http://www.azeridefence.com/news.php?id=7875

    Two years ago it was stated by Rosoboronexport that they were in talks with "CIS nations".

    http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/paris-russia-in-ka-52-talks-with-cis-nations-arms-agency-387378/

    And lastly the Ka-52 was brought to ADEX-2014 defence expo in Azerbaijan.

    http://kret.com/en/news/3485/

    So one of the possibilities is also Azerbaijan IMO.

    Algeria can be confirmed as a potential buyer here, but it also probably means that the first announced Ka-52 contract is with some other country.

    "В декабре 2014г. заключен договор  с АО «Вертолеты России» на оказание услуг по подготовке и организации показа боевого вертолета Ка-52 для потенциального покупателя в Республике Алжир в июле-августе 2015г."

    http://alexeyvvo.livejournal.com/116016.html

    Algeria is mentioned as a potential customer, and that Ka-52 will be demonstrated for the Algerian military in July-August 2015 (which is yet to come).
