Ka-52M attack helicopter will receive upgraded weapons and navigation systems

32
Deeply modernized attack helicopter "Alligator" in the version of Ka-52М is planned to be created by 2021-2022 year, the general director of the holding "Helicopters of Russia" (Rostec) Andrei Boginsky said in an interview with Interfax.


The Ministry of Defense has set us such a task. I think it will be 2021-2022 year. It is a deep modernization.
- declared Boginsky

He noted that the modernization will affect the entire onboard complex: weapons and navigation systems.

Ka-52M attack helicopter will receive upgraded weapons and navigation systems


But this does not mean that we will not make current upgrades. We are interested in this. The experience of the combat use of helicopters for us is worth a lot. In real conditions, it is possible to understand whether certain constructive solutions really help the pilot or something needs to be improved, reliability is improved.
- said Boginsky.

According to him, the holding is constantly engaged in improving its helicopters, taking into account the wishes of the flight and engineering staff.

We have a small modernization of surveillance and sighting systems - what the Ministry of Defense requires, and we are actively working with the Shvabe holding company. Further there will be a question of a more profound modernization of sight-sighting systems - this is an increase in the range of recognition and detection of targets. This is, let's say, the second stage of work that we are conducting today.
- said the head of "Russian Helicopters."

He added that one of the important issues relating to the modernization of rotary-wing machines is the unification of existing weapons and the emergence of new ones.

As previously reported, February 6, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov, visiting the Progress AAC, announced the agency’s plans to purchase X-NUMX Ka-114 Alligator helicopters as part of the state armament program for 52-2018 years. He stressed that we are talking about the purchase of helicopters in the new version. According to Yu.Borisov, for the Ka-2027 create new missiles of increased range, in addition, the helicopter will receive an improved optical-aiming system. The deputy minister also said that according to the plan in 52, six new "Alligators" should receive the VKS.

      Of course, the decision is right. The upgraded Ka-52M will undergo a run-in, perhaps a decision will be made on the construction of a domestic helicopter carrier, and helicopters will already be ready for it in iron.

        To the helicopter carrier, a ready-made helicopter has a K-52 Katran.

        Pasha, hello hi ! You are right, now avionics from K-52 Katran will be on it and there will be another helicopter under the same shell. But as they say, avionics are several times more expensive than on the coast. request

            Most likely the fact is that the K-52 Katran was developed under the Mistral and the electronic base was largely Western, and now they are switching over to everything their own. But this is my opinion, purely amateurish in this matter.

              Maybe so . I don’t know about you, but I’m never an aviator or an aircraft manufacturer. But I like our “turntables” more than the “Apaches”, “Cobras” and “Iroquois” there. soldier

                  It is understandable: each sandpiper praises its swamp. Although I admit - I purely outwardly liked the stalled and forgotten Comanche. repeat

              Only after the blades collapsed at a critical angle of the turn leading to disaster, the death of two pilots and the subsequent increase in the distance between the coaxial screws, was “beauty” achieved, which will be measured for a long time in experimental realities. I admired 25 years. Until now, everything has been brought to mind.

      beauty is controversial ... like everything is clumsy, it's not for me to judge how functional, but aesthetics are not. I don’t know, like the over-the-body radar ... I’m probably getting older ... the "crocodile" was prettier "...it was just a crocodile!

        And what can be the sub-bus radar for the Ka-50/52? at least for pilots over their heads - it would be nice (as they once tried to install Boxwood)

        In the age of unmanned reconnaissance, over-the-body radar is no longer relevant. You will not see more helicopters with it (there will be only old ones).

    KA-52 helicopter is wonderful. It would be nice to bring it to the level of Katran in avionics. But still, there is regret that the KA-50 did not go into the series. I’m sure the Shark would have shown itself perfectly in the same Syria.

      The 50th is a unique machine, I would say, Ferrari in the world of helicopters .... but someone had to pull out their design bureau. Mile and ..... replaced the Shark with the "lame hunter"

      He did not go into the series, because, like in the Su-25, it is incredibly difficult for one pilot to pilot and control the firepower of the machine. In my opinion, the Ka-50 is more sophisticated and current technologies can make it possible to give direction to missiles even from the command post - the pilot only needs to control it. EW - garbage (unless it burns your own and others), you can always get around. Several channels of different frequencies, the morse code through interference (communication based on the frequency interruption of an alien wave, which is read by the device - has its own special frequency ..) Ka - 50 is perfection. To Ka-52 - I have complex feelings.

    Hermes, Threat, have long been asked for (threat APKWS), new cannon shells. "Crossbow" with an antenna based on a truncated paraboloid - an anachronism. And in the ECO it’s time to get rid of the French components. I hope that Vitebsk-25 has already been brought to standard.

          Works.
          Given the active use of the Ka-52 in the fighting in Syria.
          In addition, the Mi-24 is also being actively modernized in Vitebsk - there are excellent photos from the same Syria with them:

    Good news, it just could not do without a fly in the ointment, and a big one like this:
    The deputy minister also said that according to the plan in 2018, the videoconferencing system should receive six new Alligators.

    For the whole year, as many as 6 pieces in the troops? !!! No. Are you seriously? Maybe they forgot ...

    I propose to put an automatic gun under my nose, like Mi 28. For a wide angle of fire. Move the steering wheel back. Put two flat radars on the sides of the optoelectronic aiming systems.
