The Russian Ka-52 "Alligator" is a state-of-the-art, twin-seat, all-weather attack helicopter designed for reconnaissance and combat missions. It features advanced avionics, a targeting system, and a 30 mm cannon, as well as the ability to carry air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles.
The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) has released footage showing Russian helicopter pilots hitting Ukrainian positions in the South Donetsk area with unguided missiles.
"The combat task was set to destroy enemy positions in the tactical area. After receiving the combat task, the helicopter took off and flew to the target area.
