The Kamov Ka-52K ‘Katran’ new-generation shipborne attack helicopter for the Russian Naval Aviation is yet to complete its exhaustive flight-testing effort at sea.

According to Andrey Boginsky, director general at Russian Helicopters, a new contract to provide funding for the completion of the shipborne testing effort is needed to be awarded by the Russian MoD before declaring the helicopter ready for launching into production.

The new contract is set to fund a concluding flight-testing campaign which will see the Ka-52K operating off the deck of several additional Russian Navy ship classes - such as assault landing ships, corvettes and frigates.
