    Russia needs some of these machines. The Mi-8/17 are pretty big for that role.

    yeah it would be good to see this in armed version, however the for small light attack heli they have the Ansat 2RC, which would be armed with 12.7mm guns, and 4 hard points to carry rockets, bombs, and small anti air missiles. its not that much smaller really.

    "Technodynamics" develops engines for light helicopters

    Holding "Τechnodynamics" State Corporation "Rostec" on May 20, 2016 during the exhibition Helirussia-2016 announced the start of work on the family of the main engines for the TD-700 light helicopters in Moscow. They are expected to replace the existing engines manufactured by Pratt & Whitney and Turbomeca helicopter "ANSAT" and Ka-226T.

    If this is the case, then these engines may end up what is needed for Ka-60?

    The engines for Ka-60 were in the 1,300hp power range, so these engines are a little small.

    they were talking about developing a whole new family range of engines for helicopters and transport aircraft from very big to small... and they have clearly developed very small engines for various cruise missile designs too.

    I suspect they know what they are doing.

    Nope. These are too small and don't create enough power for the Ka-60.
    Try again.

    They would need something like VK-1700 series of engines, but way to go to market such product which they have showed little interest to research and produce such product yet. Slim market share for such engines Klimov has that is why they are not gambling on such class of helicopters.
