Russia’s state-owned Rostec State Corporation will put forward a proposal to modernize South Korea’s fleet of Kamov Ka-32 helicopters at Seoul ADEX 2019 exhibition scheduled to begin on October 15.
The Ka-32 choppers will get a new glass cockpit, advanced avionics, powerful VK-2500PS-02 engine and a new firefighting system under the modernisation program, all of which will be on display at the exhibition, Rostec announced Monday.

The technical solutions in the avionics of the Ka-32A11M helicopter have already been tested on the civil multipurpose helicopters Ansat, Mi-38 and Ka-62.
