    Considering, that customer was not named, I think this could be either Iran either North Korea.

    Definitely not North Korea, but I'm betting money on Egypt as a way to send a message to the U.S. that if you arbitrarily halt deliveries of equipment (which they did for Egypt in 2013, and in Iraq in 2014), than they'll stop buying from you and start buying from somebody 'else', which is codeword for Russia.

    It's no mere coincidence that both Egypt and Iraq simultaneously (within a span of a '1' and 1/2 years) having almost all their equipment order book be bought from the U.S., then suddenly switch to almost having their entire equipment orders supplied from Russia...

    ...Simply put, they're tired of having their equipment coming with strings attached!!!

    Concern "radio-Electronic technology" has developed a multi-channel laser-beam guidance system (LSN) for helicopters Ka-52, Mi-MNP, Mi-28N. The new development will provide highly accurate missile guidance and will allow the helicopters to use rockets of various types. LSN is designed to perform tasks of motion control and bring the guided missile to the target, captured and held by the automatic accompaniment or manually by an operator. The system uses a powerful CW solid-state laser pumped by laser diodes. Scanning of a laser beam is a compact, low-inertia, two-coordinate acousto-optic deflector, without mechanical parts operated by electric signals. In products-analogues control field created purely mechanical means, which leads to lower performance, lower reliability, increased size and mass. "Concern established for manufacturing of highly intelligent and innovative systems and introducing them to the series. They should be universal, in other words – it must be installed on old and new equipment," – said the first Deputy CEO of KRET Igor Nasenkov. According to him, modern laser technology KRET fully meet these requirements. "In particular, the LSN can be installed on helicopters and ground vehicles, MANPADS, and the drones," added Igor Nasenkov. The LSN test confirmed the high precision guided missiles and high reliability of the developed instrument. The laser guidance system is commercially available at KRET.

    Apparently the export contract for Ka-52 is with Egypt.

    So by todays exchange rate of USD and RUB it would mean that 1x GOES-451 costs 1.45 mln USD, quite expensive but cheaper now.

    The General suggested that in these circumstances it is necessary to modernize air defense facility, one of the important elements which could use the helicopter-interceptor. The task of such a machine would be a rapid response to emerging threat posed by "unconventional" means of air attack and destruction purposes, the use for which anti-aircraft missile systems and fighters unreasonably or technically impossible.

    In this capacity, the Kamov design Bureau has proposed to use the fighter Ka-50. The interceptor was supposed to equip exclusively mass-produced systems. As a means of detecting air targets had to be set radar "Spear", was developed and implemented in a series of OJSC "Fazotron-NIIR", and opto-electronic sighting system of JSC "Geophysics-ART", similar to that installed on various versions of su-27 fighters. As a means of destruction was proposed to use guided missiles R-77 class "air–air", launchers of MANPADS "Igla" and promising multipurpose complex guided weapons "Hermes" Tula design Bureau. Helicopter-interceptor using a 30-mm gun 2A42 could effectively deal with "unconventional" means of air attack, to which S. V. Mikheev attributed primarily UAVs, light aircraft, gliders and trikes.

    The letter focuses attention was drawn to the fact that the new complex "Shark" is built on the open architecture that allowed relatively easy to integrate helicopter-interceptor in a single information field of antiaircraft defense of the country. This ensured the smooth rise and output to a district meeting for the purpose of helicopter-interceptor, and, consequently, reduced the reaction time of the defense to the emerging air threat. An important factor was the possibility of interfacing avionics Ka-50 with a flow of information from aircraft airborne early warning And-50 and held while testing radar picket helicopters Ka-35.

    ИЖЕВСК, 23 октября. /Корр. ТАСС Евгения Самуськова/. Концерн «Калашников» поставил Минобороны РФ первую партию управляемых ракет «Вихрь-1», сообщили в пятницу в пресс-службе предприятия.

    «На сегодняшний день концерн „Калашников“ уже приступил к серийной сборке изделий, и исполнение обязательств по госконтракту на изготовление и поставку управляемых ракет „Вихрь-1“ для нужд Минобороны РФ не вызывает никаких опасений. Первая партия ракет уже успешно поставлена государственному заказчику», — заявил гендиректор концерна Алексей Криворучко, чьи слова привели в пресс-службе.

    Concern Kalashnikov deliver the first batch of Vikhr-1 missiles to Russian MoD according to contract. Ka-52 is finally getting its main armament. Maybe Vikhr-1 missiles will also find their use in Su-25SM3/UBM equipped with new SOLT targeting complex.

    Rogozin promised to double the release of Ka-52
    Russian Aviaton » Friday December 18, 2015 16:01 MSK

    Annual production of attack helicopters Ka-52 “Alligator” will double by 2017 taking into account the release version of the machine for naval aviation. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said RIA Novosti .

    “Today we got acquainted with the progress of work on the ship version of our armored combat helicopter Ka-52. That was – made four helicopters in the framework of development work for our “Mistral” but we’re still going to do helicopter but at its shipyards. Therefore by 2017 production volume will increase up to 50 helicopters per year – in fact this doubling of production ” – said Rogozin.

    The factory “Progress” in Arsenyev (Primorye) which is produced helicopter Ka-52 received in 2011 a contract with the Ministry of Defense of 140 billion rubles for the supply of 143 units for the needs of the Air Force in 2020. To this must be added contract for 32 Ka-52K “Katran” deck version of the Ka-52 which was planned to be used on the amphibious assault ship of the “Mistral” and that with a high probability of be transferred Egypt who bought these ships. Egypt also ordered in 2015 an additional 50 helicopters Ka-52 in the standard version.

    According to the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies in the period from 2008 to 2011 it was collected in Arsenyev 26 Ka-52 helicopters 2 of them experienced. In 2012 and 2013 the plant gave the Air Force for 21 helicopters in 2014 – 10 helicopters. In 2015 plan Ministry of Defense to supply – 16 units.

    That total of 26 aircraft from 2008-2011 would have to include the Ka-50's according to this blog's count;

    I just read up on the Arbalet radar and it seems to be superior to the Longbow in every way except for the number of targets that it can detect. The Arbalet detects only 20 targets simultaneously.  The Longbow can apparently detect 256 targets. The Arbalet has longer range and better resolution.

    Arbalet tracks 20 targets simultaneously. This is more than enough as Ka-52 doesn't have enough armament to engage this number of targets.

    scratch Are you sur for the Longbow ? 256 is way too much for a helicopter radar. It's the level of a ground based big radar.

    I would agree, but having a full picture of the battlefield would be preferable. The Russians can increase the detection capability of this radar. There are small AESA radars that can detect 1,000 targets.

    That's what I read from multiple sources. The Israelis have a 50 kg radar that can apparently detect 1,000 targets, so it's possible.

    It is 128 targets, but it prioritizes the top 16, also Longbow is 360 degrees while Arbalet only covers the front hemisphere at best.

    I would take the Arbalet any day...Especially with the rest of the Ka-52s systems.

    Its 128 i belive, but it also determines 30(ish? dont rly recall exact number, i guess it could be 32) most dangerous targets and allows you to attack 16 of them at the same time.

    I was under the impression that the Arbalet radar was mast mounted -- without any restrictions in azimuth and elevation. I just wonder what affect coaxial rotors would have on the performance of a mast mounted radar.

    It makes more sense to place the radars on the side and rear of the helicopter body.
