The deadlines for testing the upgraded Ka-52M

The development and testing of the first prototypes of the modernized Ka-52M Alligator helicopter with new weapons will be completed by the end of 2022. According to the government procurement portal, the National Center for Helicopter Engineering named after Mil and Kamov placed an order for the manufacture and testing of two prototypes of the Ka-52M, created on the basis of serial machines.


According to the document, the finalization of production vehicles in a modernized version should be completed by the end of 2020, followed by preliminary flight and joint state tests. During the modernization, the helicopter will receive new airborne systems: navigation, sighting, fire control and communications systems, as well as new weapons. At the same time, the car will retain the previous glider, but will acquire additional fuel tanks.

The full test program should be completed in September 2022. In total, it is planned to get into service 114 modernized helicopters.

The creation of a new version of the Ka-52 helicopter became known in 2018. According to the CEO of Russian Helicopters Holding Andrei Boginsky, the Ministry of Defense, having studied the experience of using helicopters in combat conditions in the Syrian Arab Republic, set the designers to create a modernized version that would take into account the proposals of the flight and engineering personnel participating in the battles.

As previously repeatedly reported, unlike its predecessor, the Ka-52 helicopter, the upgraded Ka-52M received enhanced armor and a new airborne defense system that protects the machine from anti-aircraft missiles. Armament was unified with another rotorcraft - Mi-28NM. The Ka-52M arsenal will include long-range Hermes-A missiles, guided by Vikhr-M anti-tank missiles, as well as Product 305 - aviation cruise missile with a range of up to 100 km.

    арсенал Ка-52М войдут дальнобойные ракеты "Гермес-А", управляемые противотанковые "Вихрь-М", а также "изделие 305" - авиационная крылатая ракета с дальностью до 100 км.

      So yes ... the main thing that they unify with the Milyavites .... accordingly, the price will decrease. It’s just that some moths of Mil and Sukhoi, such as why we need to be inconsistent ... will blow ourselves up ... And so many engineering personnel have been lost so few and closing the design bureau for a moment and Kamov is a very bad decision.

        ".....На доработанные машины будут установлены новые навигационная и прицельная системы, а также система управления огнем и комплекс связи. Кроме того, сообщается о сопряжении «Аллигатора» с новой крылатой ракетой. Она фигурирует под названием «изделие 305». При этом стоимость работ оценивается в сумму около 153,5 млн руб......
        ..According to some reports, the Ka-52M helicopter will receive a new radar B006 “Rezets” with an active phased antenna array (AFAR). This radar has 640 transceiver modules. The capabilities of the Alligator airborne locator will be as follows: the detection range of the tank is 45 km, the ship of the destroyer type is 150 km, the fighter is 50 km, the helicopter (subject to slow speed and hovering) is 20 km.
        ...... Also on the Alligator during the upcoming modernization will be installed optoelectronic sighting system OES-52. It has already been installed on Ka-52 helicopters, which were exported to Egypt. The Russian development was created on the model of the French, manufactured by Safran, which was equipped with a Tiger attack helicopter. OES-52 contains five sensors - a thermal imaging camera and a television camera, a laser tracker, a range finder and a pointer for ATGMs.
        ..... As for the light multi-purpose guided missile (LMUR, “product 305”), information about these weapons began to appear a year ago. It is believed that promising tactical missiles with multi-range homing heads and bispectral infrared sensors are the key to the success of strike operations of promising army aviation.
        ...... There is evidence that the “305 product” is equipped with a highly sensitive multispectral optoelectronic homing head using not only a semi-active laser and TV / photo contrast sensors, but also a dual-band matrix IR photodetector (medium and long-wave IR ranges) : 3-5 and 8-13 microns respectively).
        .... This missile can attack an object selected for destruction in the “let-forget” mode, and in a difficult jamming environment, which will noticeably unload the pilot and navigator.
        .... "Product 305" is capable of attacking ground / surface targets at a distance of up to 25 km (in some sources the range and 100 km is called) with diving angles of more than 60-70 degrees. This will allow helicopter crews not to enter the affected areas of short-range and short-range anti-aircraft missile systems, such as Avenger, IM-SHORAD, VL-MICA and Spider-SR.
        ...... It is believed that the domestic "product 305" significantly surpasses a similar American missile type JAGM (Joint Air-to-Ground Missile). It is assumed that this missile in the US will completely replace the existing AGM-114 Hellfire and Tou anti-tank missiles, as well as the AGM-65 Mayverik general-purpose guided missiles. The carriers of the new JAGM products will be aircraft, helicopters and shock unmanned aerial vehicles.

                        Have you heard about dronopad? We make the best quality weapons the best in the world, which should not just come out victorious among equals, but out of 3 world ones (you can’t lower the bar). The helicopter should be able to independently conduct reconnaissance (especially considering the saturation of the Russian UAV army), hiding behind objects on the ground (houses, trees, hills), exposing only a block of sensors above them, and flying in envelope mode without blinding. IMHO.

                        Helicopter as a weapon platform is good. But for intelligence - a good target because of its size.
                        UAVs, in terms of visibility, are commensurate with the dimensions of the supra-muzzle radar and reflects the signal much less.

          At the Ka-52, it is more powerful - it sees further, it can direct weapons, and if you need to look around you - spin around its axis, you will see everything. This is not difficult for a co-pilot, even continuing to fly in one direction.

        Here you are categorically wrong.
        For starters, the Mi-28 and Ka-50 are machines designed according to the ideology of the 70s. Then there were no radars for helicopters and did not even dream of. An OLS or multi-channel aiming and navigation system was what was done for both machines.
        Based on the combat experience gained in Afghanistan by Mi-24 helicopters, Milevtsians immediately decided to put a rotary artillery mount on the car. Kamovtsy experience of shock machines for the aircraft did not have, and therefore went on the path to a better engineering decisions and the gun made virtually motionless. But they placed it close to the center of mass.

        As a result, the Mi-28's nose is not just full, it is loaded (by mass) and experiences vibrations and heavy loads during firing. That is, it’s difficult to put a radar there, nowhere and it will shake. Apache has the same thing. The radar and the gun are not friends near. Yes, and without a gun in the nose and Mi-28 a lot of things are installed.
        РЛС над втулкой делается не от хитрости и не для "выпрыгивания из-за домов и пригорков". И будь у Ми-28 свободен нос -- конструкторы установили бы РЛС туда. Да там и есть антенна. Только маленькая. Самый "нос" -- это антенна станции наведения УР.

    Plus, in the cockpit there is a TV on which, in live broadcast, the image of the surrounding panorama from a high-altitude drone is broadcast (possibly in 4K) bully

      Not an attempt. And the military’s categorical demand for Kamovtsans to be installed on the Sturm-V car. So the Ka-52 flies with Sturm. The whirlwind remained a low-volume model, and in my opinion, no one took Hermes-A in general. And all this is not necessary. Missiles from Chrysanthemums and new missiles based on aircraft will go to the new Mi-28NM. Against their background, Whirlwind and Hermes no longer look. And since they will be on the Mi-28, then after some time they will be on the Ka-52. Maybe even at the same time.
