Russian Helicopters will double the production of Ka-52 Alligator reconnaissance and combat helicopter to meet domestic and export orders in 2017.
The helicopter built at Progress has already completed all ground and flight tests required by the technical terms and conditions of the government contract. The company has produced this year’s first Ka-52 Alligator - a reconnaissance and combat helicopter. Several more rotorcraft bodies of the new helicopters are at their final assembly point at Arsenyev. In February, another batch of Ka-52 helicopters will be transferred to their operators, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
The first batch of Alligators scheduled for delivery in 2017 per government contract terms was transferred to the Russian Ministry of Defense ahead of schedule in December of last year. In 2017, production of these helicopters will be more than doubled as some will be headed overseas. The first experimental unit for a foreign customer has already been assembled and is successfully passing all tests as planned.
"We took all necessary organizational and technological steps at Progress to expand production in view of the forthcoming volume increase. Today, the plant is ready to produce Ka-52 helicopters in a timely manner, for the Ministry of Defense, as well as for foreign customers," - said Russian Helicopters Deputy CEO for Sales Vladislav Savelyev.
The reconnaissance and combat Ka-52 Alligator rotorcraft has been produced for the needs of the Russian Federation’s Ministry of Defense since 2010. The helicopter is designed to destroy tanks, armored and non-armored military equipment, ground targets, and enemy troops and helicopters both on the front line and in tactical reserves, in all weather conditions and at any time of the day.
The helicopter is equipped with the latest avionics and powerful weapon systems, which can be configured for a variety of combat missions. The Alligator’s coaxial rotors and increased pitch power control allow to effectively maneuver and perform complex aerobatics. In addition, the Ka-52 Alligator is equipped with electronic and active counter measures and signature control devices that reduce, scatter and distort the engine heat wake.
