Russia will supply the Ka-20 Alligator reconnaissance and attack helicopters to Egypt around 52 by the end of the month, Interfax reported, citing an informed source.


Another 20 "Alligators". Egypt will receive a batch of the latest helicopters before the end of the month


Before 30, the next batch of Ka-52 from 18-22 helicopters will be delivered to the Egyptian side
- Said the source agency.

Earlier in 2017, a batch of 15 helicopters was handed over to Egypt, while the contract must supply 46 Alligators.

It was also reported that in the 2018 year, the company "Helicopters of Russia" will produce about 25 combat "Alligators", six of them are intended for the Russian Defense Ministry, the rest - for export.

The export version of the Ka-52 is a modification of a serial combat helicopter. Unlike the base model, the Alligator for a foreign customer is manufactured using anti-corrosion materials and has a reinforced fuselage design. It installed new landing gear and wheels, designed for increased take-off weight of the helicopter.

On the Ka-52 in the export version, a new airborne defense complex and a sighting station are installed, which provides a greater range of detection and recognition of targets. The helicopter is also equipped with an updated onboard equipment system, an objective control system, an improved digital video registration system, and a new cooling system ensuring the operation of the helicopter in hot climates.

    I can imagine how popular the KA-50 would be with customers. I am sure that Shark's potential for export would be higher than that of the Alligator, given its performance characteristics and price.

        The only benefit from Marshal Taburetkin is somersault with the Mistrals .... True, he did not count on this, he was lucky ...

          All the same, it is a pity that this happened with the Mistrals, they would have found a worthy application in our armed forces (IMHO). Although many people think differently. By the way, during the times of the Union, everything that is now operating at the BDK was built in Poland, the overwhelming majority of the icebreaker fleet was in Finland, and nothing bad happened. The Navy is now straining with certain categories of ships.

            You confuse the hot with the soft - Poland and Finland built for us according to OUR standards, and "Mistral" according to the NATO standard. Even such a “trifle” as oil and grease - where to get it? About electronic "brains" you can not talk.

            So, in a conversation about Mistral, the CMEA example is completely off topic.

              but what about the Finns forgot to write? it seems not SVD? so it’s a normal example, and it’s not worth it to worry too much about it, sometimes it’s even useful to place orders in other countries so that ours don’t have a lot of bullying. The French two BDKs got bogged down, our Grena can’t get everybody screwed, and at the price it probably is not inferior

                Because I am poorly versed in naval affairs. He gave examples of support for CMEA partners with aviation orders. This explains these orders, and not something else. With Finland, too, were pretty close contacts. We sold them MiGs, for example.

            In Russia, the cost of gasoline fluctuates with the cost of oil, except for the gradual increase in excise taxes. By the way, the cost of oil at our place is rooted to the spot - 6tr per barrel.

        It is single, more maneuverable, cheaper than a team Alligator. KA-52 was originally conceived as a command vehicle, with which the command of the Shark squadron is conducted.

          The load on the pilot will be large. Have you seen the video how Russian helicopters work in Syria? One pilot shoots a guided missile and leads it through the optical system to the target, from a distance of no more than 7 km, and at that time, who should control the helicopter then?

              Well, we hope that on the Su-57 there will be a high level of automation and there will be a weapon with the principle of "shot and forgot" and will not have to keep the sighting mark until it falls into the target.

                  ... and, nevertheless, in all open sources they write that the rejection of the single-seat “Shark” is caused precisely by the fact that the avionics did not provide the necessary degree of automation of flight and combat control.

      No popularity. The double version just appeared due to the requirements of potential buyers to have a separate weapons operator. The Arabs have always been wound up, seen enough of the Americans. And our flyers confirmed that it’s hard for one on the battlefield.

      The Ka-52 is no worse than a shark, even more efficient, you can maneuver and fire at the same time (as it turned out, the single Ka-50 had problems with this, you had to hang motionlessly so that the pilot (aka navigator) could fire accurately

      This is different in Western countries, the best for yourself. The Czechs not so long ago "rebelled" that the same German-made meat products in the same packages at the same price are strikingly different in quality in Germany and in the Czech Republic not in favor of the latter.
      Russia yes, it was always afraid to face the Western partners in the dirt, therefore the best was exported.

    Read the story of the creation of Ka 50 and 52, including the reasons for the appearance of 52. Information - the wagon sea! Do not be lazy. Of particular interest are the tenders that the RF .... lost. In Turkey, including There is also a lot of completely open information on printers and navigation equipment (PNO). That is, the cannon (from the behi, 30 mm, by the way), ATGM "Whirlwind" / "Attack" (if the memory is not changed, correct, if it is not right) - this is one thing, but Schaub got it all, PNO set from the French, the Israelis. And the buyer himself is free to choose an electronic filling, which has its own characteristics and price. I would even say this: it’s great that we can put electronics from different suppliers on our helicopter wing. For example, if you believe the open infe, the Russian Federation has not decided, unfortunately, the topic of NVD for the "alligator and night hunter." Well, it happens ... More infa strained about the growth of the mass of the helicopter. As a rule, with \ these things, they try to "make less jokes." The increase in mass affects everything that lifts an aircraft into the air. The standard vicious circle: "mass growth - requires an increase in engine power - an increase in the total mass of la due to an increase in the mass of the engine (as a rule) - a decrease in flying performance." With this circle fought during the Second World War.
