Egypt to receive first Ka-52 helicopters
Russian Helicopters is on track to deliver the first Ka-52 Alligator helicopters to Egypt in 2017.
Russian Helicopters confirmed the Egyptian order for 46 Ka-52 helicopters - made through Rosoboronexport, Russia's monopolist arms export agent - in 2016.
The Ka-52 Alligator is a combat helicopter designed for all-weather, day-night operations.
The helicopter is equipped with stealth technologies, active IR and electronic jammers as well as satellite navigation. Colour displays in the cockpit convey a wide range of information, including a digital map of the terrain. The Alligator has a twin-seat cockpit and can be controlled by either pilot. It features a coaxial rotor system.
