    Very nice.
    Now the Ka-52 is the only Attack Helicopter capable to destroy vessels larger than a patrol boat and 300km is an insane range for an Attack Helicopter.

    Ka-52 has lots of potential, it would be nice if they (Kamov) could create a helicopter hybrid between the Ka-52 and Ka-226, a larger more modular Ka-52 maybe in the same class as the Mi-26 (as a direct competitor) a mulitpurpose helicopter that was not necessarily a "military only" helicopter but still retained a major footprint. We could see versions for rescue operations within EMERCOM structure, but who am I kidding? I just want to see an attack/scout helicopter like the Ka-52 in the same class as the Mi-26 for my sadist fascination! Twisted Evil

    Actually there was some project that never gone into production for heavy lifting and high capacity almost like chinook, the V-50 project.

    http://aviastar.org/helicopters_eng/kamov_v-50.php

    Not a kamov co-axial design because, such large aircrafts tend to have a lot of weight just through rotor blades and from their own weight those rotor blades bend pretty far, not really what you want on a co-axial design.

    Excellent. I hope we will soon see a picture of naval Ka-52KM. I don't know, if helicopter version of Kh-35 have 300 km range, but still very long arm for helicopter. I hope Kh-31A/P will also be integrated on Ka-52KM, because Kh-31P will be very important to support naval infantry operations.

    Maybe they can go about having two rotary blade placements on the airframe like the Chinook, but both being co-axial rotary sets? BTW is there any news on the Ka-92 and the VK-3000 engines? While were at it, any news on the development of the Ka-90?

    State testing of Ka-52K attack helicopters for Mistral helicopter carriers will be competed in 2015
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday October 28, 2014 17:35 MSK

    State testing of Ka-52K attack helicopters for Mistral helicopter carriers will be competed in 2015, head of Russian delegation, Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC), Anatoly Punchuk, told RIA Novosti.

    FSMTC believes that the first Mistral will be delivered to Russian navy this year. After that it will be ferried to St. Petersburg-based Severnaya Verf (stands for Northern Shipyard) plant in order to fit the vessel with Russian weapons. This work should be completed in mid-2015.

    “This project is being implemented. In accordance with the schedule, the state testing of Ka-52K helicopter must be completed in 2015”,- Punchuk said at Euronaval 2014 exhibition held in Paris.

    According to him, four Ka-52K prototypes are under construction. “These attack helicopters will be based on Mistral helicopter carriers”,- the head of Russian delegation explained.

    The contract for delivery of two Mistral helicopter carriers was signed by DCNS (France) and Rosoboronexport in 2011. The value of this contract is €1,2 billion.

    USA is against deliveries of Mistrals to Russia and France threatened to terminate the contract many times under US pressure. However, experts believe that termination of this contract will not cause significant negative consequences for Russian Federation: France will have to pay a significant cancellation fee and Russia will be able to develop and manufacture its own analogue of Mistral.

    Ka-52K Helicopters to Make First Flights in 2015: Russian Helicopters CEO

    Ka-52K attack helicopters will be located on Mistral-class helicopter carriers, which France is obliged to deliver to Russia. The first helicopter are already constructed.

    The Sevastopol amphibious assault ship of the Mistral class at the STX Europe shipyard in Saint-Nazaire.

    MOSCOW, December 2 (Sputnik) – The first flights by Kamov Ka-52K attack helicopters for the Mistral class amphibious assault ships will take place in 2015, Alexander Mikheev, the head of Russian Helicopters company, told RIA Novosti Tuesday.

    "The helicopters of this type [Ka-52K] will be located on Mistral-class helicopter carriers, which France is obliged to deliver to Russia. The first helicopters are already constructed. The first trial flights of Ka-52K helicopters will take place in the beginning of 2015," Mikheev said.

    Russia and France signed a $1.6 billion deal for two Mistral-class ships in June 2011. The handover of the first ship, the Vladivostok, was scheduled for November 14, but did not take place.

    On November 25, French President Francois Hollande postponed the delivery of the Vladivostok to Russia over the situation in Ukraine.

    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.

    Deck the Ka-52K decided to use anti-ship missiles

    The concern radio-Electronic technologies (CRIT) will enhance the characteristics of the carrier-based version of the Ka-52K "Katran" due to the possibility of the use of anti-ship missiles Kh-31 and Kh-35, which previously could only be used by the su-30 and MiG-29K, the press service of the concern.

    "Integrated avionics system, produced by KRET, makes the Ka-52K powerful, reliable and modern weapons. In the future, the helicopters can get a new on-Board radar station, which will allow them to apply the anti-ship missile Kh-31 and Kh-35. This fact makes the Ka-52K absolutely unique fighting machine. The fact that these anti-ship missiles, until recently, could only be used by the su-30 and MiG-29K", - reads the statement of the Director-General CRET Nikolai Kolesov, which is provided in a press release received by the newspaper VIEW.

    The Ka-52K Katran (deck version of the Ka-52 "alligator") is equipped with modern avionics and powerful offensive weapons, which can be configured for different purposes. KRET enterprises produce for helicopter key systems avionics equipment, for which the Ka-52K is capable of fulfilling combat tasks in all weather conditions, at any time of the day. It has laser-beam system guided weapons and system for processing video images of the family, "Hunter", used for missile guidance. Radar complex "Crossbow", produced KRET, allows the helicopter to deal effectively combat missions even when exposed to an electronic interference.

    Recall, deck Ka-52K is supposed to be used on the helicopter type "Mistral".

    Last year Arseniev aviation company "Progress" to them. Sazykina (part of "Helicopters of Russia") received from the Russian military order on the party deck of Ka-52K for "Mistral". The first three machines, the customer had to get to the end of last year.

    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.”
