The Russian military is expecting to receive sixteen multirole Kamov Ka-52 helicopters by this year-end. 

Sixteen multirole Kamov Ka-52 helicopters will be handed over to the Russian military before the end of this year.

"This year we are slated to receive sixteen Ka-52s,” the Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov told RIA Novosti on Monday, after a visit to the Progress plant in Arsenyev. 

The plant’s director, Yuri Denisenko, for his part, pledged to complete all the 146 ordered aircraft before the 2020 deadline.

The Ka-52 Alligator 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 the tactical reserves.

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. It 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.
