The Ka-52 has unique crew placement – one pilot alongside to the other. It was designed like this to better coordinate the pilots’ actions in combat. The helicopter is armed with a 30-mm automatic gun and the Vikhr guided missile.
The Ka-52 has been in service in the Russian Armed Forces since 2011. Over 70 machines were produced, and a carrier-based modification was designed.
