The Ka-52K shipborne reconnaissance and attack helicopter will test for the stability of the vehicle’s on-board equipment to electromagnetic interference, сообщает Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation

Currently, preparations are underway to conduct tests to assess the durability of avionics and aviation means of destruction to the influence of external electromagnetic fields. A new inertial navigation system is also being tested.

The Ka-52K reconnaissance and attack helicopter is ready for a new stage of state testing.


The Ka-52K all-weather reconnaissance and attack helicopter is intended for patrolling, assault fire support during disembarking, solution of anti-amphibious defense tasks on the front edge and in tactical depth at any time of day. Modern onboard equipment provides the helicopter navigation in the absence of landmarks in the sea.

The ship-based Ka-52's reduced dimensions make it possible to increase the maximum possible number of helicopters placed on the ship. The crew’s armored cockpit and the use of a catapult system that is unique to the world helicopter industry provides pilots with the maximum level of security that cannot be offered on any helicopter of this class produced abroad. Another important feature of the Ka-52K is the use of corrosion-resistant materials, due to the need to operate the machine in a humid maritime climate.

    The American catapult, which had recently fallen into the sea, lacked, as on the Ka-52K

      With such an apparatus, they are now required to build a helicopter carrier and not one

      You are not the first to glorify the Ka-52 catapult at VO. And I ask one question, and it remains as always unanswered - was this catapult generally tested on living people? Why during the accidents in Zhulebino and Torzhok no one took the opportunity to bail out? Why does even the VO article use the term "seat" when it is called the "rocket and parachute ejection system"? And if our best catapult seats in military aircraft even expose the pilot to serious risk and injury risk, then it’s as untested (D.A.M. once asked at some exhibition people who praised the catapult - “who wants to try in action ? "- there weren’t anyone who wants it) they pass off as something outstanding? Either explain to me that this system was tested by volunteers, well, show the video (what's so bad if everyone is healthy?), Or I, in the place of all Ka-52 fans (myself), would keep silent about the catapult, while the Israeli vultures. , would not peck this sick (so far only visible to me) topic. See for yourself a picture of the principle of operation of such a catapult system. But I’ll post the video (for the third (!) Time), with the question “in the air” - give confidence that it has been tested in public !!! I hope you can distinguish a mannequin from a living person.

        Well, by the way, the additive .. The regular catapult seat of combat aircraft is thrown out together with the pilot at the same time. On the Ka-52, splashing the blades, or some other type of damage to them, will lead to torsion of the machine, and it is very difficult to suspect a colossus weighing about 10 tons without the glider’s ability to fly in any vertical stability and orientation in space, not being on the ground. And a bailout system of this kind evokes sad thoughts, especially if the falling helicopter rotates around itself .. Well, someone smart at VO ... Tell me I'm wrong !!! I will be very grateful to you.

        I would also like to see the catapult in action. According to the declared specifications, it can be used even while on the ground - a jet engine pulls out a chair (I think everyone writes a chair so that it was more understandable), with a pilot to a height of about 100 meters.

        there the pilots tried to save the car as far as I know.

        - the firing of the blades and the breaking of the glazing of the cockpit lantern, the operation of the jet engine that pulls the pilot, takes place in a split second, so I think that even on a spinning machine there should be no problems other than tremendous overloads for the pilot. (Well, of course, this is all in theory ....) in practice, I would like to see even figs with him, let him have a mannequin, but completely with the firing of the blades, breaking the glazing and actually with the bailout itself

          It seems only the back of the chair shoots back hi

          In the video I posted in the second half, there is also a mannequin (just in case). Only there is no shooting of the blades, yes.

          except for colossal overloads for the pilot.

          That's just the point - the load is distributed in the chair, and then injuries are possible, the load on the spine is huge ... But then everything on the straps turns out ..? I'm afraid to imagine with what force these belts will put pressure on the pilot.

    trials the process is tedious and long, but so far you cannot do without them

    Probably they will test with equipment that bothers Americans very much?

    It seems that a week ago they wrote about a little more than a dozen have already been sold to Egypt and one unit less than the Russian Armed Forces. Perhaps this is not about the tests of Katran, but a new kit for him?

      It seems like Ka-52, and not Ka-52K, is being sold to Egypt now.
