In 2016, Egypt signed a contract for 46 Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopters. The first sighting of the Ka-52, complete with the desert camo of the Egyptian Air Force, was seen in the progress factory in Arsenyev, Russia recently. Included in this contract was a training agreement enabling Egyptian pilots to train in Russia for the new helicopters. This new attack helicopter has two VK-2500 turboshaft engines, with four hardpoints under the wings, reports Defence Blog.
