“The crews of the Ka-52 helicopters have begun scheduled training flights,” noted Kochetkov.
The newest all-weather combat helicopter Ka-52 "Alligator" is able to conduct effective combat operations at any time of the day. It is based on a significantly modified two-seat modification of the famous Ka-50 “Black Shark” attack helicopter. Its main purpose is the destruction of low-speed air targets, armored and unarmored ground targets, enemy manpower, and reconnaissance operations.
It is worth noting that the 15 th aviation brigade of the Western Military District formed the December 25 2013. Seven combat helicopters Mi-28H “Night Hunter”, two Mi-35М, four transport-combat helicopters Mi-8МТВ-5, as well as two heavy transport helicopters Mi-26 were shown at the ceremony.
