The test phase, which took place from late 2016 to early 2017, involved two Ka-52K helicopters. According to Russian Helicopters deputy CEO for sales Vladislav Savelyev, the helicopters performed well in difficult marine conditions and will now move on to further testing on aircraft carriers.
The Ka-52K, which is being developed for the Russian Navy, is a ship-based variant of the Ka-52 Alligator combat helicopter, incorporating modern avionics for navigation at sea. It also has folding blades and wings, an upgraded air conditioning system, and corrosion-resistant materials for operation in a saltwater environment.
