Upgraded attack helicopters Ka-52M appeared in the area of ​​the special military operation

Modernized attack helicopters Ka-52M appeared in the zone of the special military operation, earlier the Russian Aerospace Forces received the first squadron of improved helicopters. This was reported by an informed source.

Army aviation began to actively use new modernized Ka-52M helicopters in the NMD zone, which have an expanded range of weapons, unified with the Mi-28 Night Hunter, including Izdeliye 305 missiles, which allow hitting the enemy at a distance of 14,5 km. The new helicopter is capable of destroying both armored vehicles and enemy manpower without entering the Ukrainian air defense coverage area.



As part of a special military operation, the forces of the army aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces are currently using modernized attack helicopters Ka-52M

- leads RIA News source words.

The Ka-52M attack helicopter was developed taking into account the operation of the Ka-52 helicopter in Syria, as well as the proposals of the flight and engineering personnel who participated in the battles. Unlike its predecessor, the Ka-52 helicopter, the modernized Ka-52M received new on-board systems: navigation, sighting, fire control and communication systems, as well as a new radar with AFAR, armoring and an airborne defense complex. At the same time, the car retained the previous airframe, but acquired additional fuel tanks. The armament of the Ka-52M is unified with the Mi-28NM.

Earlier it was reported that under the first contract, the Russian Aerospace Forces will receive 30 Ka-52M attack helicopters in two batches of 15 aircraft, the first at the end of 2022, the second in 2023. In total, it is planned to order over a hundred new helicopters.

      Helicopters, of course, are an extremely useful thing ... But, everything haunts me with one idea, a thought. The idea of ​​​​creating special assault UAVs to support the front. Created by helicopter type or it will be a cyclocopter, it doesn’t matter.

        I support you. I am sure that we will yet witness how not only Maviks with RGD, but also assault UAVs are working on the opornik. Khakhol, by the way, is actively working in this direction, trying to remake agricultural Chinese drones.
        Ps. In the purchase of such, grouping D will no longer help our fighters - it's expensive.

      It is only unclear why the armament could not immediately be unified by the designer and the developers somehow cooperate with each other?

        So far, almost no one has been able to do what the Kamovtsy have now done, so here is the very case wink
        Still, different design bureaus have their own preferences and visions for the use of the designed equipment, and accordingly the "body kit" is selected.
        But in a particular case, as they say, there was no happiness, but misfortune helped - the accumulated experience of using turntables in Syria and on dill suggested the optimal set of means of suppressing the enemy, and besides, such a "generalization" will simplify the logistics of BC for turntables, which is certainly positively.
        So Kamovites are great, now you can share experience with other design bureaus and gunsmiths.

          In any case, both the Mi-28 and Ka-52 are already machines in the series. And it's time to think about tomorrow. Striped all over develop the theme with SB>1 Defiant. In my purely DIAN opinion, the coaxial system looks much more profitable for a combat helicopter. Definitely, the car of the future should be based on a coaxial layout and preferably with a pusher propeller in order to increase the speed to at least 500 km / h. The pilot and gunner should sit like in the Mi-28. Well, special attention should be paid to the workplace of the shooter. Augmented reality helmet with long-range optical and thermal imaging channels. In turn, we need means of defeating the enemy and, above all, develop the Product 305. There should also be products that work according to the coordinates of the Glonass satellite system.

        This is the karma of our defense industry since the days "after the Second World War" ... three tanks, three helicopters (now, they forgot about the Mi35). Dry 3 pieces, etc.

      That is, if you believe the article, they changed the entire control system (I'm talking about electronics), because in the original version, based on the results of the use in Syria and Ukraine, M. O. did not suit anything ?!

      How do designers and developers collaborate with each other?
      They cooperate, but also constantly compete in promoting their products and adopting them into service. Well, weapons, in particular missiles, were probably initially selected with the expectation of performing certain combat missions. For example, the Ka-52 has almost 2 times more ammunition for the gun than the Mi-28 (460 versus 250 pieces).

        The ammunition of the gun is not decisive. The most important weapon of an ATGM helicopter. And a gun on a helicopter is like an officer's gun.

      In fact, the Kamovs should be armed with such a cool product as the Whirlwind ATGM, with a launch range of 10 km.
      However, the video use of these very birds is very rare, but the nurses from the cabling are constantly

        I don’t know what’s cool about an outdated laser-guided missile, but product 305 needs to be used as much as possible.

      I hope the sights and guidance allow you to shoot NURSs using the cabling method?
      To be honest, I expected more from the turntables, and so far in the course of the NWO, against the army, and not the partisans, they show themselves very weakly.

      New helicopters are certainly good, but damn it, the whole ambush is in tactics. Or rather, that they spit on it and use combat helicopters in any way, but not as it should.
      In order not to pull politeness, I will say right away that there is nothing for combat helicopters to do in the nearest tactical depth. There, front-line aviation will do just fine, if, again, they fight competently, not with "cast iron".
      The task of a combat helicopter is the direct support of troops that have come into combat contact with the enemy. An incredibly difficult task, even for the crew of a combat helicopter, to figure out where the enemy is and where are their own. But it is solved if you work on it. First of all, communication with the troops of the front line is needed, at least at the level of a company commander.
      Okay, I won’t talk about the details now, I’ll just summarize, there’s nothing to separate helicopters from those tasks that no one else can perform except them.
      And perhaps the most important thing that needs to be understood by the leadership of the army and the state, too, is that saving on ammunition leads to an increased consumption of equipment and crews.
      Will there be much use from the Ka-52M (probably much more expensive than its predecessor) if the tactics of firing NAR from nose-up according to the principle continue again - maybe we’ll get somewhere in that direction?
      Meanwhile, there is a lot of video where tank breakthroughs are reflected by tanks. And where are the combat helicopters, because this is their task?
      In addition, one should also understand, or rather, recall one truth from the time of the Second World War - two mediocre aircraft (in this case, a helicopter) are better than one excellent one.
      If for the cost of one Ka-52M, which due to lack of funds will fight the NAR, it will be possible to restore several Mi-24s, but at the same time provide them with sufficient ATGM ammunition, then this is many times better. Naturally, if you work competently, along the front line, and not try to look for something there in the tactical depth.

        ATGM whirlwind and attack unfortunately have a short range of 10 and 8 km. But in reality, with our optics, even less. Therefore, even when working "along the front line" our helicopters will be in the coverage area of ​​​​the Nazi air defense systems of beeches, wasps, arrows, MANPADS. With the 305 it is already possible to work more safely (15 km) and more efficiently. It would be great if they brought to mind the production of Hermes anti-tank systems (30 km). But we haven't heard anything about him lately.

      If there is a shortage of helicopters, then it was possible to restore the Ka-50 from Torzhok.

        If there is a shortage, then there are Mi24 and Mi35 ..... it is much easier to bring them to standard

      With "product 305" you can certainly work more safely (range 15 km) and more efficiently. It would be great if they brought to mind the production of Hermes anti-tank systems (30 km). But lately, for some reason, nothing has been heard about him. ATGM whirlwind and attack unfortunately have a short range of 10 and 8 km. But in reality, with our optics, even less. Therefore, even when working "along the front line" our helicopters will be in the coverage area of ​​the Nazi air defense systems (beeches, wasps, arrows, MANPADS). I don’t even want to talk about the NUR-s-80 nose-up shooting, it’s just nonsense. It's like hailstones in areas and directions. But on a hail rocket, the charge is decent and at least the funnel remains. From the s-80 even traces are not visible. She will not be able to harm the Bandera people hiding in shelters. These missiles can cause damage to open accumulations of manpower, but for this you need to hit direct fire and from a short distance., Which is fraught with unsuppressed air defense
