(TASS) The first three Russian Ka-52 reconnaissance and combat helicopters built at Progress Plant were accepted by Egypt, a source in the Russian defense industry told TASS on Tuesday.

Egyptian pilots currently undergo helicopter training, the source said.

Ka-52 helicopters are built at Progress Plant in the Primorsk Region within the framework of 2015 year contract on delivery of 46 Alligators to Egypt.

The plant completed all the required activities for production expansion in 2016 in anticipation of forthcoming growth in its volumes, managing director of Progress Yuri Denisenko said earlier.

Russia also won the tender on delivery of Ka-52K ship-based helicopters for Egyptian Mistral class amphibious assault ships, Director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugaev said in June 2017.

Russia and Egypt will hold talks on deliveries of Ka-52K helicopters at MAKS 2017 airshow, Shugaev said earlier today.

I think Da’ish in Sinai will love the Ka-52 fuck… Russians should really mass-produce the Ugroza laser-guidance kit for their S-series aerial rockets. 120 guided rockets, each with 6kg explosive (equiv. to an ATGM) would have serious potential Due to the shape/weight of Ka-52 and the 2x2400HP engines, it may have been more clever to also… make it a fixed wing aircraft with STOL capabilities and optional folding wings. These could have also be used from a flat-top LHD, payload, range/loitering time and speed could have been greatly augmented while price lowered by probably 30%. Note that the 1950 AJ-1… Read more »

You can also equip a Boeing with guided rockets. The guided rocket systems have a delivery range and altitude. You cannot put 120 guided rockets on a plane and operate simply because the number of shorties to fire 120 guided rockets will be more than the planes fuel capacity. The planes weapon system should be locked on the target for the entire delivery duration for a guided rocket to hit the target. Unlike, American movies. So you need to fly the aircraft in a way to ensure the cameras or sensors will be seeing the target, until the impact. Another… Read more »

“The guided rocket systems have a delivery range and altitude” => ILGR ranges 10km, CRV7 8km, it’s OK! “You cannot put 120 guided rockets on a plane and operate simply because the number of shorties to fire 120 guided rockets will be more than the planes fuel capacity” => That’s why I recommand a propeller aircraft! With 2x2400HP (piston!) and a 20kN turbojet, 1950 AJ-1 Savage could already carry a 5400kg payload. The piston engine weighted +1000kg, you have 2400HP turboprop weighting about 300kg, the Williams FJ-44-4 has a 20kN thrust and is really small. AJ-1 could fly at 748km/h… Read more »
