In 2022, Ka-52 attack helicopters will go into service with the troops of the Central Military District (TsVO). This was announced by the commander of the Central Military District, Colonel-General Alexander Lapin.

“By the end of the year, in order to strengthen the combat power of the army aviation brigade stationed in the regions of the Urals, we plan to receive a squadron of new Ka-52 attack helicopters. This will be the first unit in the military district to have this type of modern helicopters in service,” Lapin said.

The Ka-52 “Alligator” helicopter can provide reconnaissance of targets, target distribution and hardware target designation. The Ka-52 is equipped with visibility reduction devices, an electronic protection system and active countermeasures. The coaxial propeller layout allows it to quickly maneuver in tight spaces to take advantage of an attacking position. The Ka-52 has a high crew security, modern automated systems to facilitate piloting, and is also easy to maintain on the ground.
