    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.
