    12 tanks destroyed is a huge lose for most armies. Less missile but bigger ones means Pk is higher and guidance part is bigger and more effective.

    Well another important point is that helicopters don't operate alone, so 12 ATGM per helo actually means 48 missiles per four helo flight group, which is plenty.

    The best way to up the guided weapon count would be laser homing unguided rockets in rocket pods, as modern ATGMs have enormous warheads to penetrate very well protected MBTs which makes them serious over kill for the vast majority of actual vehicles on the battlefield like trucks and light vehicles... an 80mm rocket with a direct hit and a decent HE warhead would be perfectly fine for dealing with such threats...

    Seems like Syria is a rather useful testing ground for them... and their attack platforms seem to be seriously benefiting from it.

    According to Kamov's test pilot Alexander Cherednichenko, the naval helicopter the Ka-52K will receive an external sling to be able to carry cargo or evacuate people/casualties.

    That is a clever idea... they might never actually use it, but adding it would not be that difficult and it wont get in the way or be much of a problem normally.


    Would be an interesting way to deliver food and ammo and weapons to deployed troops and recover any injured or troops being replaced.

    Wouldn't be very comfortable just being in a net, but I suspect various containers could be developed... perhaps even fitted with a tail for stability and light armour protection from small arms perhaps...
