    Helicopter radar needs to have good resolution for mapping in order to use atgm from 10km away and in this case long range aginst naval threats.

    Puting a radar designed for fighters inside an helicopter without adaptating it for its needs is stupid. Better put them inside mig29smt and let ka-52 with old radar.

    AFAIK Parameters on card were for version from 2009, Then Zhuk it was profound update for MiG-35, What are thier characteristics nobody knows really. Hermez AGTM can have up to 100km range (standard Hermes-A 20km tho)

    The Ka-52K reconnaissance and attack helicopter is capable of striking armored and unarmored vehicles, manpower, surface and air targets. Initially, this machine was developed for the Mistral, therefore, the Katran is equipped with a folding propeller and wing consoles, on which the armament is mounted - subsonic anti-ship missiles X-31 or X-35.

    Interesting, because there are UAVs shown at the Zala website showing the standard Ka-52 with under wing pylon mounted boxes holding large numbers of air launched UAVs that can be released from the helo in flight and controlled from the gunners position... something similar would be useful at sea... perhaps some Sonobouy or surface drone with a dipping sonar that could be dropped at sea that could search for enemy subs which could be attacked with 400mm torpedoes and the surface UAV could be picked up again by the helo after use so it is not too expensive to operate and not disposable...

    So we have small AEW too ;-)

    Fixed forward looking radar.... unlike the 360 degree antenna of the Ka-31.

    true but Mi-42 fits both SAR & attack alike

    Mi-42 doesn't actually exist yet though does it?

    But for 20 years I`ve thought that Ka-52 is dedicated combat helicopter with many armament options! But if it "only carry pilots" it is small, light observation helicopter then!??

    Ka-52K is modified to operate from Mistral carriers... folding main rotors, folding stub wings, new modern AESA nose mounted radar... new weapons options.

    The land based Ka-52 is a heavy recon/attack helo.

    Puting a radar designed for fighters inside an helicopter without adaptating it for its needs is stupid. Better put them inside mig29smt and let ka-52 with old radar.

    Not many tanks at sea so no point in keeping standard radar.... this new radar is much better at detecting targets at much greater range than the MMW radar fitted to normal Hokum helicopters... the land based helo would not be interested in targets further away than about 30km...

    ok now better: if Mi-42 existed it would fit to attack and SAR roles. Suspect Suspect Suspect

    It will still be used to attack ground targets mainly. So it still needs MMW radar. It's used on a lavina not on a carrier.

    It's not aimed at replacing ka-27 and ka-31.

    ok now better: if Mi-42 existed it would fit to attack and SAR roles.

    I would suspect the Mi-42 is pretty much dead, as is the Mi-40, but any potential result from the new work on high speed helos might result in a medium helicopter that could also perform the role intended for those cancelled aircraft.

    The radar on the Ka-52 is intended mainly for detecting and tracking ground targets including vehicles and buildings of all types, as well as troops and other targets including aerial targets over the battlefield.

    For use on the Ka-52K the demand is to track rather fewer potential targets, but would require the detection of air targets at much greater ranges....

    MMW radar as used on land based helos is excellent for detecting and tracking small targets against a ground background because of the detail they produce... the problem is that they are not really very useful for very long range use... as I said targets beyond 30km would be difficult for such systems.
    With CM wave radar much greater volumes of space can be scanned for targets, and to compensate for ground clutter as an AESA radar it can use a lot of signal processing to find and track low altitude targets.

    For the naval helo low flying anti ship missiles and indeed speed boats, submarine masts or divers heads would be normal targets... as well as bouys and other things.

    The Ka-52K on a Mistral would be performing the same roles suggested for a STOVL fighter jet on the same carrier.

    I dont expect old program to be resurrected. But the idea of creating gunship/transport/SAR helicopter is alive and kicking. In Russia VDV wants this in US this is called FVL.

    An RT Documentary about one of the boats that go inside the 22160's hanger.

    They do show it inside the slip in one of the episodes, don't think they'd actually tested launch/recovery yet though, most of the episode was about the journey downstream.

    I wonder how successful that latch is going to work out in practice, pretty nice in theory at least.
    Bit disappointed protection is only vs 5.56mm, kinda expected 7.65mm or 12.7mm but only so much that can be done within relatively limited volume/weight limit.

    I sure hope more of these get translated.

    Yes, I saw that a few months ago, but without the english subtitles.

    Laughed at about 44 seconds when that blank round went off in his ear... I can relate to that when rabbit shooting.

    Looks rather good to me... would be excellent for anti piracy missions.

    There was a very old computer game called Hokum or something that was set in and around SE Asia where you controlled a large boat with a dozen helicopters and it had a main gun for anti aircraft use. The boat was basically a mobile air base and you could sail it around whenever needed to support your current operation.

    There were lots of helicopter types on board including Lynx, Cobras, Hokums, Mi-8s, and other types that could be flown on missions. You had a limited number of helos and weapons and fuel and had to manage your operations so you had enough to complete missions. You also had to move your base/ship, which had a single gun to defend itself from air or sea attack.

    Perhaps it is time for an upgrade where you start out with a Bykov or similar class vessel with these speed boats and perhaps a few armed helos... Ka-29, Ka-226, Ka-52K and the like, but as you play you can upgrade... eventually commanding a Mistral or new Russian equivalent with 16 helicopters and of course landing ships and larger attack boats/inflatables...

    They do show it inside the slip in one of the episodes, don't think they'd actually tested launch/recovery yet though, most of the episode was about the journey downstream.

    I remember seeing another video showing them operating this little boat at sea including launching and taking it back on board while underway...

    Protection above small calibre assault rifle would make it too heavy to do what it does... better to have a few remote operated versions with gun turrets that could be sent in first to deal with any MG positions... they could have heavier armour and lots and lots of ammo... and those sound tracking systems to find the source of incoming rounds so the firing positions can be engaged directly and quickly.
