Opis produktu

The Kamov Ka50 (NATO codename Hokum) was developed as a newgeneration heavilyarmoured attack helicopter originally conceived as a onetoone replacement of the Mi24 Hind. The programme was launched at the Moscowbased Kamov Experimental Design Bureau in the late 1970s. The concept promoted by the then young and inventive head of Kamov Sergey Mikheev called for an unorthodox wellprotected agile and smallsize attack machine. The unorthodox attack rotorcraft made its maiden flight in June 1982. It pioneered the Kamovs trademark coaxial rotor scheme combined with a highly automated flight/navigation/targeting suite and longrange antitank guided missiles. In the late 1980s after a protracted headtohead competition pitted against the Mil Mi28 it was judged as being definitely superior to its competitor and was subsequently ordered for serial production. The first productionstandard Ka50 took to the air in May 1991 and the new type was formally commissioned into Russian Army Aviation Service in August 1995. As many as five prototypes and 13 productionstandard helicopters were manufactured between 1982 and 2009. The singleseat and highlyautomated Ka50 however appeared on the scene at just the wrong time with its production launched during the dissolution of the mighty Soviet Union and the onset of sharp cuts in Russias defence budget which led to its termination in the late 2000s. First design work on a twoseat derivative of the Ka50 designated as the Ka52 Alligator commenced as early as 1994 (initially as a companyfunded venture). The first prototype using the fuselage of a productionstandard Ka50 with a new nose section was rolled out in November 1996 and made its maiden flight in the hover on 25 June 1997. In 2003 the Ka52 successfully completed the first phase of the Russian military testing and evaluation effort covering the flight performance. After three years the Russian MoD finally allocated a budget for systems development testing and evaluation to be used within the framework of the second phase of the Ka52s state testing effort. In addition the Russian MoD allocated funds to setting up a production line at the AAC progress plant in Arsenyev situated in Russias Far Eastern territories. Even before completion of this effort the initial productionstandard Ka52s were rolled out in the second half of 2010 and handed over to the Army Aviation Centre of Combat Training and Aircrew Conversion at Torzhok in December that year. Currently the Ka52 is the main newgeneration type of the Russian Army Aviation Service with approximately 200 examples ordered plus another 36 for the Russia Naval Aviation.
