Variants include the Ka-29 assault transport, the Ka-28 downgraded export version, and the Ka-32 for civilian use.

 

Design and development

In 1997, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) in cooperation with the Kamov bureau entered the Ka-50-2 Erdogan (Turkish for "Born Warrior") in a Turkish design competition for a $4 billion contract for 145 (later changed to 50) combat helicopters.

The Mil Mi-6 was a Soviet/Russian heavy transport helicopter designed by the Mil design bureau and built in large numbers for both military and civil roles.

 

Design and development

The Mil Mi-8 is a medium twin-turbine transport helicopter that can also act as a gunship. The Mi-8 is the world's most-produced helicopter, and is used by over 50 countries. Russia is the largest operator of the Mi-8/Mi-17 helicopter.

 

Design and development

The Mil Mi-28 is a Russian all-weather day-night military tandem two-seat anti-armour attack helicopter. It is a dedicated attack helicopter with no intended secondary transport capability, better optimized than the Mil Mi-24 for the role. It carries a single gun in an undernose barbette, plus external loads carried on pylons beneath stub wings.

Development

Kamov Ka-27 was developed to replace the Ka-25 shipborne helicopter in the Soviet Navy performing Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Search and Rescue (SAR) missions. In addition, Ka-27 was designed to operate at night and all-weather conditions which were the main shortfalls of Ka-25. NATO nicknamed this aircraft as Helix. Ka-28 is the designation assigned to export models and Ka-32 designation refers to variants intended for the civil/commercial market.

Ka-32A main roles are: carrying people and cargoes in the transport cabin and bulky cargo on external sling, evacuation of casualties and victims, search and emergency-rescue operations, loading-unloading of the ships in travel and at roadstead, servicing operations of coastal gas and oil pipelines, building-installation operations.

The Kamov Ka-60 Kasatka is a Russian Air Force helicopter that first flew 24 December 1998.
