According to him, the Ministry of Defense estimates that in 2013, the plant "Progress" will perform a scheduled part of the state order, and in 2020 he will be able to build 143 helicopters.

    I looked it up - seems like it is the KumAPP plant in Bashkiriya that's involved in the production of the Ka-27/29/31 series.

    No, they are not talking about the Ka-27 series.
    This is about the naval version of the Ka-52 that will go on Mistrals.
    So, there will be 32 Naval Ka-52 helicopters to be built at the Progress factory in Arseneev (Far East).
    The number 143 applies to the total of Ka-52 helicopters (Air force and Navy) to be assembled in that same factory.

    I suspect the 32 helos they are talking about ordering in 2014 will likely include a mix of Ka-52, Ka-226T and Ka-29 because the Mistral class vessels will be entering service from 2014 and they can carry 16 helos each so 32 sounds like they want to order two ship loads of helos next year, but the other orders will no doubt include Ka-226T and Ka-62 helos for destroyers and other vessels as well as extra helos for the Mistrals... plus of course new helos for the Kuznetsov for when she is out of refit... which will likely be in 2020 or so.

    Each Kirov class vessel can carry 3 x 12 ton helos so smaller lighter models could be carried in larger numbers if required. Certainly a significant upgrade of the Ka-27 would be in order with all new electronics and sensors and equipment.

    A Russky Reporter reporter visited a top-secret shipyard in the town of Severodvinsk and saw how Russia’s underwater missile shield is being built.

    Same as they did on the Voronezh. Repairs + overhaul, small modernization, life extension.
