      In the photo, slightly changed in front of the Alligator ... it would be nice to pull the avionics to the level of Katran. And about ...
      The Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopter is a modernized version of the Ka-50 Black Shark.

      this is complete stupidity ... Shark single attack helicopter. And the Alligator was conceived as a command helicopter as part of Shark squadrons, which were lighter, more maneuverable and faster.
      According to experts, it has the best aerodynamic characteristics and is less noticeable for radars.

      If the Shark was to this day, modernized and mass-produced, the KA-50 would be the best attack helicopter in the world, even in comparison with Katran.

        Yes, it is noticeable. I believe that there’s still much that can be downloaded, rearranged, upgraded to the reptile ...

    You can not control a machine and a complex of weapons at the same time as effectively as 2 pilots do. Therefore, 2 crew members.

      Yes, this is understandable "almost", but in 1999-2000 they showed themselves perfectly and where it is now "impossible", then it was possible.

      There is a solution, however. She is in the aviation generals. They still can’t make it clear that they need to fight in a new way, linking several vehicles into one group, into a single “information and combat network”. Fathers-commanders prefer the old-fashioned way to throw helicopters into a single "free hunt" for death. The new tactics tested by BUG in Chechnya have not been seriously studied and are not going to be developed. Our aviation generals do not want to, at least count on their head, prepare for the wars of the next century!
      However, the strange behavior of the "top" of our Air Force has a second explanation. It is completely economic.
      When is the best one who has more money ...
      The Ka-50 really does not like those who produce Mi-brand helicopters. The Milevtsi, accustomed to the undivided monopoly on the supply of helicopters for the Ground Forces, were stronger not in the battlefield, but in high offices. Today they are much richer than “Kamovites”.
      Once the Mi-24 made a worldwide sensation. And that was a wonderful car in the early 1970s - but only for a war with NATO regular troops in the lowlands of Europe, and not with bearded militants in a mountainous and wooded area. Already in Afghanistan in 1979-1989, the Mi-24 proved to be slow and too heavy, clumsy, unable to overcome high mountain passes. And the weapons of the West also developed. In the 1980s, it became clear that the army needed an attacking combat helicopter capable of destroying point targets without entering the air defense strike zone.

      The article itself is very easy to read and does not claim to be the "last resort."
