Ka 52, The Perfect Predator of the Russian Aviation

Posted on May 12, 2013 by team


We want to talk about a beautiful “predator” – attack helicopter Ka-52. This heavy vehicle moves so gracefully that it seems to be dancing in the air…

Development of the two-seater version of the basic one-seater model Ka-50 began in 1994. In December 2010 Ka-52 “Alligator” was put into service.

First four vehicles were used for training instructors who would teach pilots of combatant forces. Eight units more were sent to the Far East of Russia. In October 2011 the Far Eastern squadron had twelve units of helicopters.

      The isrealies had nothing to do with the Ka-52. They did however had input on Ka-50-2 “Erdogan” and their input was only avionics wise.

    Benjamin Chung, gun in the center of mass have better accuracy (3 times better, in fact, for the similar gun mounted on the nose of Mi-24). Furthermore Ka-52 can fly in any direction and rotate absolutely freely, so it doesn’t need to circle targets in tangentional position, like Mi-24, that have wings providing additional 10-30% of the lifting force and requre constant motion, or attack targets like planes – making circles from one side of a it, Ka-52 can just fly around constantly facing enemy. It’s just a compromiss between outstanding accuracy and usability.
