30th August 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Russian Helicopters is set to begin testing of the Ka-52K maritime reconnaissance and combat helicopter for resistance to electromagnetic interference, the company announced on 26 August.

A Ka-52K preproduction demonstration unit is being prepared for the work, which will see avionics and combat systems' ability to resist electromagnetic interference tested.

A second unit is currently undergoing preliminary tests in airfield-base conditions; and another is undergoing testing for the helicopter's inertial navigation system.

The Ka-52K helicopter being developed for the Russian Navy based on the Ka-52 Alligator reconnaissance and combat helicopter in service with the Russian Air Force. The aircraft is designed for patrol, providing fire support for troop landings and anti-airborne defence.

The helicopter features an abbreviated folding wing to make place for heavy weapons, and a blade folding mechanism. This reduced footprint will allow the helicopter to operate from vessel flight decks.
