The Russian Defense Ministry will be receiving the first consignment of Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters and will enter operational service in 2017.
The manufacturing of the helicopters is strictly in compliance with the production schedule, said Russian Helicopters CEO Andrey Boginsky.
The Ka-52 is designed to defeat armored and non-armored hardware, personnel and air targets on the battlefield.
This year it is planned to supply several Alligator consignments more that now are completing the manufacturing and test stages.
The Russian Helicopters Ka-52 is a next-generation reconnaissance and combat helicopter designed to destroy tanks, armored and non-armored ground targets, enemy troops and helicopters both on the front line and in tactical reserves. The helicopter can operate around the clock and in all weathers. The Ka-52 can provide target acquisition and designation for helicopter teams and ground troop command and control centres. It can also provide fire support for troop landings, fly routine patrols and escort military convoys.
Ka-52 Alligator is fitted with control devices as well as electronic and active counter-measures. It meets the latest Russian and international standards for technical operation of military helicopters.
The helicopter has a two-seat cockpit and can be flown by either pilot. Its advanced flight capabilities – achieved in part thanks to its coaxial rotors – make the helicopter highly manoeuvrable in limited space and thus able to adopt an advantageous attack position.
The Ka-52 Alligator’s two VK-2500 turboshaft engines allow the helicopter to operate at altitudes above 5,000m. It has a static ceiling of 4,000m, and is able to take off and land in hot climates and in high mountainous terrain.
The Alligator can also operate in cold climates and icy conditions.
The Ka-52 Alligator is equipped with the latest avionics suite and powerful offensive weapons that can be configured for a wide range of combat missions. The Ka-52 Alligator offers a high degree of protection to its crew, advanced automated systems for ease of piloting, and is easy to service and maintain on the ground.
