    The Ministry of Defense has agreed on the cost of the upgraded Ka-52M helicopters. The new attack helicopters will cost over 1 billion rubles each.


    The Russian military department will pay 1 billion 75 million rubles for each copy of the modernized Ka-52M helicopter. At the same time, it is specified that this is the cost of the helicopter itself, it does not include ammunition, ground equipment, spare parts and other accessories.

    According to Izvestia , in fact, the cost of the new modernized Ka-52M is very close to the price for one Su-30SM multipurpose fighter, which costs 1 billion 187 million rubles, but is significantly lower than the price for one Su-35S (2 billion 287 million rubles) and Su-57 (more than 3 billion rubles).

    It is emphasized that the cost of about $ 15 million per helicopter is only for the Russian army, the Ka-52M will be exported at a much higher price. Considering that the Mi-8 and Mi-15 are exported at $ 30 million per helicopter, the attack Ka-52M will be much more expensive. At the same time, it is noted that the cost of the Russian helicopter is significantly lower than that of American or European counterparts. A similar American Apache is not sold for less than $ 115 million.

    The first contract for the supply of the modernized Ka-52M was signed in August this year. Under the agreement, Russian Helicopters will supply 30 new attack helicopters to the Defense Ministry during 2022-2023. In total, the military intends to receive more than a hundred Ka-52Ms by 2027, previously a figure of 144 units was called.

    The Ka-52M attack helicopter was developed taking into account the operation of the Ka-52 helicopter in Syria, as well as the proposals of the flight and engineering personnel who participated in the battles. Unlike its predecessor, the Ka-52 helicopter, the modernized Ka-52M received enhanced booking, a new airborne defense system and new weapons.

    That's 14 million € for a su-30SM and 26 million € for a su-35.

    I doubt the figure about the su-30. It shouldn't be far from su-35 price.

    14 billion for a russian chopper is reasonble.
