    I saw the "work" of the Ka-27 and Ka-29, when landing, and you won’t understand what is more of a combat or transport in them ... Powerful cars. I especially liked how they “stole” coastal engineering barriers with their help in order to clear the way for the first wave of landing.

        Something you figure is too high. In total, 46 Ka-27PL must be upgraded to Ka-27M. The first batch - an experienced one - received a fleet in the amount of 8 units in 2016, then in 2017 received another 10 helicopters, and this Ka-27М already counts for 2018. The plant undertook to upgrade 10 helicopters per year. Ka-29 require reconditioning, their order of 28 units, of which 4 was restored and sent to the BF, and now these 2 are on the Pacific Fleet. More work and work on the modernization and restoration of only existing equipment.

    Apparently the development of a helicopter in the okrug “lamprey” is a long-term prospect since the fleet of deck helicopters is so seriously modernized
