    Am I the only one that is thinking (seeing) that the wings on the K model are a bit shorter than the regular earth-bound ones?

    Yes, they are so on the first 4 prototype models. At least that is what is speculated, since Kamov already said there are 4 prototype versions and then they start serial production of K model, so i guess it will have the stubbed wings shown on some scale models that can be folded upwards.

    Yes, it have shorter wings and more space between pylons. It seems they decided to this configuration for larger payload on inside pylons to carry heavier anti-ship missiles like Kh-31A/P or Kh-35 and outside pylons are meant for AAMs. They could easier place heavy missiles on shorter fixed wings.

    http://vpk.name/news/129391_kret_moderniziruet_vertoletyi_ka52k_katran.html

    «Концерн Радиоэлектронные технологии» (КРЭТ) готов расширить характеристики палубной версии вертолета Ка-52К, оснастив его модернизированной бортовой радиолокационной станцией со встроенным сантиметровым диапазоном частот. Это позволит повысить дальность обнаружения вертолетом целей в 2 раза, что составляет почти 200 км. Подобная модернизация обеспечит уникальную возможность применения Ка-52К противокорабельных ракет типа Х-31 и Х-35, которые раннее могли применяться только самолетами Су-30 и МиГ-29К.

    KRET will modernize radar in Ka-52K with cm wavelength, which will have range around 200 km and will give Ka-52K capabilities to use Kh-31 and Kh-35 anti-ship missiles. I assume it will also be able to use Kh-31 anti-radar missile. We will see, what types of air to air missiles it will use. Radar will have enough range to use R-77 missiles.

    Russian Helicopters Designed for Mistral Ships to Find Use in Navy

    According to general designer of Kamov helicopters, Russia's Ka-52K (Hokum B) helicopters developed for use on the French-made Mistral-class helicopter carriers will be put to work in the Russian Navy.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia's Kamov Ka-52K (Hokum B) helicopters developed for use on the French-made Mistral-class helicopter carriers will be put to work in the Russian Navy, despite a failure by Paris to honor the contract, the general designer of "Ka" helicopters said Monday.

    "This circumstance [contract on Mistral ships delivery] wittingly or unwittingly led to the fact that the Russian Navy obtained another special purpose helicopter, which will find its remarkable place," Sergei Mikheev told RIA Novosti.

    Mikheev added that the Navy did not mind re-purposing the helicopters, as they can be used on any Russian Navy vessel.

    In 2011, Russia and France signed a $1.5-billion deal for two Mistral-class helicopter carriers. France refused to deliver the first vessel by the November 2014 deadline, citing Moscow's alleged role in the escalation of the Ukrainian conflict.

    In April, Paris stated it could return Moscow's payment for the construction of the ships if the contract were terminated.

    Russia has repeatedly stated that the cancellation of delivery of the Mistral ships would not affect its Navy.

    Testing of Ka-52K carrier-based helicopter is scheduled for 2015 – Russian Helicopters
    Russian Aviaton » Monday June 8, 2015 17:20 MSK

    The test program of Ka-52K carrier-based scout-attack helicopter intended for Mistral helicopter carriers is on schedule, Interfax-AVN reports with reference to Russian Helicopters Deputy CEO Andrei Shibitov.

    “Ka-52K project is significant contribution to increase of reliability and extension of service life as well as improvement of aircraft performance. The project will be implemented anyway, regardless of Mistrals’ fate,” Shibitov said at a press conference held at the Interfax’s headquarter. According to him, “the program is on schedule”. “State and production testing of the helicopter are scheduled for this year,” Shibitov added. He noted that in future Ka-52K carrier-based vehicles would replace some Ka-52 helicopters. “As for the ratio between the models – it will be defined by the Ministry of Defense,” he said.

    Ka-52K “Katran” is the military carrier-based scout-attack helicopter derived from Ka-52 “Alligator”. However, it differs from the original Ka-52, because it is designed to be operated from a carrier. That is why the helicopter is fitted with folding wings and rotor blades, as well as air conditioning system suited for operation under high humidity conditions. Ka-52K performed its maiden flight on March 7th 2015.

    Navalized Ka-52 Alligator Makes Public Debut in Russia
    by Vladimir Karnozov - July 16, 2015, 7:29 AM

    The prototype Kamov Ka-52K Katran, a navalized version of Ka-50/52 Alligator family already in Russian air force service, has made its public debut. It was briefly exposed to visitors attending the Army 2015 expo in Kubinka near Moscow in mid-June. Then it was exhibited at International Maritime Defense Show (IMDS 2015) in St. Petersburg in early July. The Russian defense ministry ordered 32 Ka-52Ks in April 2015, and the prototype flew for the first time on March 7, 2015. Its first application was intended to be on the two Mistral-class amphibious assault vessels ordered from France, delivery of which is currently embargoed.

    Speaking to journalists at IMDS 2015, Kamov general designer Sergei Mikheyev said the Ka-52K version has a reworked rotor system with elastomeric bearings in blade-mast attachment points for higher takeoff weights. “This allows for an increase in the overall combat efficiency of the helicopter and extends its tactical capabilities,” Mikheyev added. He also touched on the work being done to enable Arctic operations and to strengthen the stub wings for heavier weapon loads.

    Shown alongside the Ka-52K were two air-surface missiles from the Tactical Missiles Corporation (Russian acronym: TRV), a Kh-38MLE and a Kh-35VE. The baseline Kh-38 belongs to the new generation of TRV missiles and differs from the popular Kh-25 that it replaces by being able to fit inside to weapons bays of fifth-generation stealth fighters such as the PAKFA (Sukhoi T-50). The laser-guided missile was formally accepted into Russian air force service in December 2012. TRV has advertised the possibility of fitting the Kh-38, which weighs 520 kg (1,146 pounds), to helicopters. But only the Ka-52K has emerged so far as a suitable type to carry the weapon.

    The baseline Kh-35 entered service in 1996 on Indian navy Delhi class destroyers, and later was supplied to the navies of Algeria, Kazakhstan and Vietnam. It also won orders from Myanmar, North Korea and Turkmenistan. The air-launched version entered service in 2005 on Indian navy Ilyushin Il-38SD ASW aircraft outfitted with the Sea Dragon sensor set. Because of the many similarities with the Boeing AGM-84, the Kh-35 was nicknamed “Harpoonski.”

    The version for launch from helicopters—the Kh-35V—is a relatively new development, not yet operational. It features an enlarged solid-fuel booster, which increases its gross weight from 480 kg to 610 to 650 kg (approximately 1,400 pounds). The length increases from 3.85 meters to 4.4 meters (14.5 feet).

    Development of the Kh-35V was announced in 2009. Later, its design was unified with the Kh-35U/UE—a new, universal missile ordered by the Russian navy—which required an increase in range from 130 km to 260 to 300 km (approximately 150 nm). The Kh-35U features a new turbofan engine that runs on “another fuel” and reworked air inlet and channeling, yet keeps weight and dimensions from the ancestor. The newer version is likely to be referred to as the Kh-35UV/UVE. Instead of the ARGS-35 active radar head, it will have the Gran-K with longer range. It will use satellite navigation technologies and interact with external target designation sources.

    The Ka-52K itself carries the Arbalet-52 radar with parabolic antenna and mechanical scanning. But its developer KRET is now offering a more powerful AESA radar with detection ranges increased from 25 to 100 km to over 200 km (more than 100 nm), “so as to provide extended-range targeting capability for the air-launched missiles including the Kh-31 and Kh-35.”

    Russia’s naval aviation to receive first Mistral-bound helicopters by 2018

    MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. The Russian Navy expects to receive the first Kamov Ka-52K (Katran) ship-borne helicopters in 2017-2018, a high-placed source in the Navy’s Main Headquarters told TASS on Thursday.

    The helicopters were earlier intended to be based on two Mistral helicopter carriers, which France has refused to deliver to Russia over Moscow's stance on developments in neighboring Ukraine.

    "I believe the naval aviation will get these helicopters by 2017-2018. The helicopter component on Russian warships will be quite serious. The number of helicopters has yet to be determined but a final decision has not yet been made. But there is the understanding that they will be received and operated and we’ll see what to do further," the source said.

    The Russian Defense Minsitry also plans to purchase Sukhoi Su-30 (NATO reporting name: Flanker-C) fighter jets for naval aviation, the source said, without specifying their numbrer. The source added that there "will be a lot of such aircraft."

    The Ka-52K is the deck-based version of the Ka-52 Alligator combat helicopter. Initially, this type of helicopters was developed for Mistral helicopter carriers ordered in France in 2011.

    However, France froze the delivery of two Mistral-class amphibious assault ships to Russia in 2014 over Moscow’s stance on developments in Ukraine.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Francois Hollande agreed on Wednesday on terminating the contract on the delivery of two Mistrals to Russia.

    Russian Helicopters rotocraft manufacturer and Russia’s Defense Ministry earlier said Ka-52K helicopters would be based on other ships of the Russian Navy instead of Mistrals. Russian Helicopters has also said the company expects deck-based Alligator helicopters to enjoy demand on international arms markets.

    "Moscow plans to offer Kamov Ka-52K helicopters to a country interested in purchasing the two Mistral warships which France originally built for the Russian Navy, the Kommersant newspaper reported, citing anonymous sources. he Ka-52K rotorcraft are specifically tailored for the amphibious assault ships. Russia built a total of four machines to serve on the Mistrals before the arms deal was cancelled in August.
    No nation has formally confirmed its decision to buy the helicopter carriers but many speculate that Brazil, Egypt, India, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates are contemplating adding the amphibious assault ships to their fleet. A source told the daily that Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah al-Sis discussed the Mistrals with Vladimir Putin while on a visit to Moscow last week.
    "Sisi expressed interest in the possibility of buying the helicopter carriers from the French but it was a purely theoretical interest. … Obviously, they need financial assistance from a third party to purchase the ships," the source added but declined to comment on whether Russia could serve as a creditor. Earlier, reports emerged that Saudi Arabia could buy the two Mistrals which would likely be docked in Egypt. The oil kingdom views the amphibious assault ships as a means to project its own power in the region. They could also become part of the joint Arab force project which was recently unveiled by Riyadh and Cairo."

    Guess they wanna test them out on water, before they build those assault ships whenever they actually start and complete one that is.

    July 20/16: Russia’s latest KA-52K Katran external link helicopters are to be tested in the field external link during upcoming military action in Syria. The helicopters will be on board the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov and will join the Syrian campaign from October 2016 to January 2017. Reasoning behind the deployment, according to Viktor Murakhovsky of Arsenal Otechestva magazine, is that it “is a test of the operational and technical capacity and ability of our air carrier strike group, since previously Russia has never used air carriers in real combat conditions.”

    Russian naval combat helicopters Ka-52K on carrier Kuznetsov will use (test) in Syria new guided missiles Hermes which have a range up to 30 km. RuAF already wanted to use Hermes missiles on Ka-52 helicopters in Hmeymim before, but have troubles with transportation of missiles to Syria. Hermes have laser and IR guidance and have weight of 90 kg.

    Means we can't deliver yet because we're a little "behind schedule".
