MILITARY & INTELLIGENCE 18:52 23.02.2017
Сapt. 1st Rank Sergey Artamonov, the commander of the Russian Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, stated that he was looking forward to the introduction of Kamov Ka-52 Alligator helicopters into service.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Сapt. 1st Rank Sergey Artamonov, the commander of the Russian Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, said at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin that he was looking forward to the introduction of Kamov Ka-52 Alligator helicopters into service.

New helicopters join Russian Navy amid quest for ‘radically new’ weapons.
RT.com 15 Mar, 2017 12:34
The Russian Navy is starting to equip its ships with the latest set of combat and reconnaissance helicopters to strengthen its military clout across the world.
Ka-52K attack helicopters, Ka-31R radar surveillance helicopters, and Ka-226T shipborne helicopters will join the Russian Navy as part of the military modernization program that will run through 2025, the navy said Wednesday. In addition, the navy will receive a modernized version of the Ka-27PL choppers already in use.
"In the period until 2025, Russian naval aviation will be equipped with the new generation ship-based helicopters and helicopters that have undergone a profound modernization," the navy said in a press release.
The navy hopes that alongside "newest frigates, corvettes, and patrol ships," that are designed to carry choppers, the latest arsenal will "significantly improve" the efficiency of assigned naval tasks throughout the world.
The Ka-52K ship-based reconnaissance and combat helicopter is set to become the cream of the crop of the Russian naval force. The chopper, made by the Kamov rotorcraft manufacturing company, made its first flight in March 2015 before being unveiled in Russia at the International Maritime Defense Show in July of the same year.
The Ka-52K is equipped with state-of-the-art laser beam guidance and video processing systems, the naval-technology news website notes. The chopper also carries a 2A42-1 30mm automatic cannon and high-fragmentation, explosive incendiary, or armor-piercing rounds.
The firepower of 550 rounds a minute can destroy tanks, armored and non-armored ground targets. In addition, the Ka-52K can launch Kh-31 and Kh-35 air-to-surface missiles. The aircraft can reach a top speed of 300km/h and a cruising speed of 260km/h.
The navy also said that it is continuing to invest in the research and development of "radically new" aircraft, drones, and aviation weapon systems.
The necessity to develop and produce new weapons, the navy noted, stems from the recent success of the Russian aircraft group that has just returned from a combat mission in the Mediterranean.
In October 2016, a Russian naval group, headed by the heavy aircraft-carrying missile cruiser the ‘Admiral Kuznetsov’, was sent to the Mediterranean to participate in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria.
By February, the aviation wing of the naval group – consisting of Ka-27 and Ka-29 choppers in addition to SU-33, Mig-29 fighter jets – had conducted over 750 flights on a variety of missions. Of those missions, 117 were flown at night.
The deployment of Russian naval aviation in Syria "allowed to fulfill the entire range of tasks in the airspace over the sea and land," the navy noted.
Helicopters are "the most important element ensuring the quality and efficiency" of the performance of the "complex tasks" that the Russian Navy performs throughout the world.

“It’s an experimental project that will present its first results in a couple of years. The main goal is to increase the battle machine’s flying capacities, the range at which it can engage with the enemy, recognition and destruction of targets, and its ability to fly in adverse weather conditions,” Vadim Kozulin, a professor in the Academy of Military Science, told Russia Beyond.
Russia testing helicopter drone capable of carrying ‘serious weaponry’
RT.com 31 Jan, 2018 22:55
New unmanned helicopters capable of carrying large payloads are undergoing ground tests in Russia, the state-owned Rostec corporation has said. The prospective aircraft is expected to outclass other modern copter UAVs.
The helicopter was developed by Russian Helicopters, a Rostec subsidiary. The aircraft features a coaxial rotor and is expected to have a liftoff weight of up to 500 kg, the corporation said in a statement Wednesday.
It will be able to carry a payload of up to 150 kg and fly at speeds of 150 km/h (93 mph). Its maximum flight time is expected to be some four hours according to Rostec. The drone will be transported and controlled from a special vehicle based on the Russian-made KAMAZ truck.
Two prototypes of the new UAV are currently undergoing ground tests, with the development team fine-tuning the navigation systems, command-receiving unit and radio equipment.
“The machine shows great promise both for the military and civil markets. Its possible field of application is very wide. Such a drone can carry powerful observation systems, serious weaponry, which the widespread modern helicopters cannot lift,” Rostec industrial director Anatoly Serdyukov said. The flight tests of the unmanned helicopter are expected to be carried out later this year.

Tactical-level artillery units will use the new complex to spot ammunition depots and missile systems
ZHUKOVSKY, July 21. /TASS/. Russia will start work soon to develop a radar system mounted on a helicopter-type drone for artillery reconnaissance, a source in the Russian defense sector told TASS on Friday.
"The basic goal is to develop a reconnaissance radar complex based on a helicopter-type drone to track mobile and immobile targets. The complex’s development will soon begin," the source said at the MAKS-2017 international airshow.
Tactical-level artillery units will use the new complex to spot ammunition depots, missile systems, armored and other mechanized units in the areas of amassment, the source noted.
"In our estimate, the complex will be able to track at least 50 ground targets, transmit data to command posts and also operate in the daytime, at night and in some complex weather conditions," the source added.
Commenting on the decision to develop the complex, Editor-in-Chief of Bespilotnaya Aviatsiya (Unmanned Aviation) magazine Denis Fedutinov said that missions for detecting ground targets could be accomplished more effectively with the use of integrated reconnaissance and surveillance means that included both electro-optical and radar systems.
"This circumstance, among other things, causes the interest of military customers to mount this equipment on advanced UAV systems that have become a priority direction of military hardware development in recent years," Fedutinov told TASS.
Russia already made attempts to equip helicopter-type drones with radar systems, he noted.
"For these purposes, in particular, attempts were made to use foreign-made drones - the Austrian Camcopter S100 developed by Schiebel and the Belarusian InSKY developed by Indela," the expert said.

Russian Copter-Based Electronic Jammer Spotted in Syria for the 1st Time (PHOTO)
Sputnik MILITARY & INTELLIGENCE 13:17 20.03.2018
Known as one of the most effective jammers in the world, the Russian helicopter-based radio electronic warfare system Rychag-AV is capable of protecting the entire vehicle by "blinding" all enemy warplanes and missiles within several hundred kilometers.
A photo of what looked like the Russian Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopter equipped with the radio electronic warfare system Rychag-AV in Syria has emerged on Twitter.
The Rychag-AV is considered one of the world's most powerful jammers when it comes to disrupting the electronics of combat aircraft and cruise missiles.
The system is typically installed on Mi-8MTPR-1 choppers and can completely "blind" the enemy up to 400 kilometers (about 248 miles) away.
Additionally, Rychag-AV elements can be installed on ground-based mobile air defense systems.
Russia's Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily cited military experts as saying that the Rychag-AV jammers added significantly to reducing the effectiveness of the US air strike on Syria's Ash Sha'irat airbase in April 2017.
Russian sources reported at the time that only 23 Tomahawk cruise missiles hit the targets, while the remaining 36 flew off course.

Ka-52 Alligator: Strike Helicopter. The Tank Destroyer.
RT Documentary Sep 17, 2018
The Kamov Ka-52 Alligator is one of the Russian Air Force's most powerful and advanced anti-tank helicopters. Its impressive flight and combat capabilities make the Alligator a highly manoeuvrable flying armoury that can operate around the clock in almost all weather conditions.
The Alligator can fly backwards, sideways, and soar as low as nine metres. Its contra-rotating rotors are driven by two engines, each delivering 2,400 horsepower. The Ka-52 can even perform complex aerobatic stunts like the funnel and zoom – even while loaded up with almost three tonnes of powerful weapons.
Armed with an anti-aircraft gun, guided Ataka missiles and unguided S-8 rockets, the Alligator is a menace to targets on the ground and in the air. This attack helicopter's cockpit is armoured to keep the crew safe from bullets and it has an electronic jamming system to fend off incoming missiles.
In an emergency, a unique escape system allows both pilots to eject safely after the rotor blades have been jettisoned.
Check out this fearsome war machine with Combat Approved. In this episode, we visit the Arsenyev factory where the Ka-52 is built, take a ‘test-drive’ to see how this super-chopper performs and join in for a mock dogfight. We also meet the commander of the first military unit to fly Alligators on active duty.
TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term

TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic
Aug 24, 2021 11:27:06 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.
