Attack Helicopter Ka-52 Alligator ⚔️ Russian Air Force [Review]

September 5, 2019


Today we will speak about the atack helicopter
Ka-52 “Alligator”. The Ka-52 Alligator is a next-generation reconnaissance
and combat helicopter designed to destroy tanks, armoured and non-armoured ground targets,
and enemy troops and helicopters both on the front line and in tactical reserves. The helicopter can operate around the clock
and in all weathers. The Ka-52 can provide target acquisition and
designation for helicopter teams and ground troop command and control centres. It can also provide fire support for troop
landings, fly routine patrols and escort military convoys. Ka-52 Alligator is fitted with signature control
devices as well as electronic and active counter-measures. It meets the latest Russian and international
standards for technical operation of military helicopters. The helicopter has a two-seat cockpit and
can be flown by either pilot. Its advanced flight capabilities – achieved
in part thanks to its coaxial rotors – make the helicopter highly manoeuvrable in limited
space and thus able to adopt an advantageous attack position. The Ka-52 Alligator’s two VK-2500 turboshaft
engines allow the helicopter to operate at altitudes above 5,000m. It has a static ceiling of 4,000m, and is
able to take off and land in hot climates and in high mountainous terrain. The Alligator can also operate in cold climates
and icy conditions. The Ka-52 Alligator is equipped with the latest
avionics suite and powerful offensive weapons that can be configured for a wide range of
combat missions. The Ka-52 Alligator offers a high degree of
protection to its crew, advanced automated systems for ease of piloting, and is easy
to service and maintain on the ground. Armament:
The aircraft has one 2A42 30 mm gun. This automatic cannon is mounted near the
centre of fuselage and carries 460 high-fragmentation, explosive incendiary, or armour-piercing rounds. The type of ammunition is also selected by
the pilot in the flight. Integrated 30 mm cannon is semi-rigidly fixed
on the helicopter’s side, movable only slightly in elevation and azimuth. Semi-rigid mounting improves the cannon’s
accuracy, giving the 30 mm a longer practical range and better hit ratio at medium ranges
than with a free-turning turret mount. The fire control system automatically shares
all target information in real time, allowing one helicopter to engage a target spotted
by another aircraft, and the system can also input target information from ground-based
forward scouts with personnel-carried target designation gear. Anti-tank armament are the twelve laser-guided
Vikhr anti-tank missiles, with a maximum range of some 8 km. The laser guidance is reported to be virtually
jam-proof and the system features automatic guidance to target, enabling evasive action
immediately after missile launch.

  1. I really like the Ka-52. As well as the various other attack chopper. Points for style and all around bad ass looking helio goes to Russia hands down!
    Yeah sure my native stomping ground of America has a few hundred more attack choppers over all, but while the Apache and Cobra are cool, they don't come close to the Ka-52! Except for their amazing history!

  2. Why not mounted turret? Seems more flexible if it had a movable turret. And can it withstand heavy artillery fire for at least 3 seconds?

  3. Pesawat kita sdh hebat2 peralatan meliter juga hebat tapi masih kurang dukungan satelit meliter klau ada pasti TNI tambah hebat.

  4. All that Russian airforce is missing is precision targeting , the US has whats called fire and forget they lock on fire and can immediately turn away assured it will be a spot on hit within 2-3 feet margin of error , Russian targeting still has a larger margin of error within 10-15 feet or so which can be the difference of a hit or miss

  5. The Gun of this Helicopter can be moved 2°30 to left 9° to Right, 3°30 up and 37° down. And its mounted sideways to keep a low profile and increase the accuracy.

    And can regulary be fired and used to ranges up to 4100m against unhardened Targets with HE ammunition. The efficieny of AP Ammunition drops drastically above 2500m.

  6. talks about crew safety, doesn't mention it is 1 of 2 helicopters in the world with an Ejection seat.

  7. 우리 나라 대한민국에는 이미 ka32가 사용되고 있다. 뛰어난 성능과 악조건을 극복하는 힘으로 구조헬기로 소방헬기로 맹활약하고 있다. 러시아제 장비에 대한 거부감은 이제 옛말이 되었다. 수많은 러시아제 장비와 무기가 이미 우리 군에서 사용되고 있고 그 뛰어난 성능은 입증이 된지가 오래다. 문제는 지금까지 독점적 지위를 누리던 미제 무기수입 브로크들의 여론 공작이다. 아파치 헬기 수입에서 드러났듯이 아파치 헬기 도입은 우리 군에게 아주 제한적인 운용만이 가능하다는게 드러났다. 아파치 헬기의 정비와 운용에 관해 우리 군에게 전혀 이전하지 않은 것이다. 아파치 헬기를 정비하고 교체부품을 바꿔야줘야 하지만 여러가지 보안으로 묶어놓아서 맘대로 정비할 수 없다. 전투상황에서 어떻게 정비를 맘대로 할 수 없는데 제대로 전투력이 발휘될 것인가 ??? 거기에 비하면 한국인 브로커들(예를 들어 이규태 회장)의 공작만 제거하면 러시아제 무기와 장비는 미국에 비교해서 파격적으로 좋은 조건으로 구입할 수 있다.

  8. These are some nice attack helicopters by what I'm hearing. They had some news about 8 months ago that my country (Mexico) would open a factory of these Russian attack helicopters to arm the country but I think it was cancelled, I'm not sure. Though it would have been cool to open them.

  9. I wanna know more about its gun. It sits in the same place as the old mi-24's but isn't static to the side of the cockpit like the mi-24's.

  10. The coolest thing I like about the KA-50 & 52 is the fact you can actually change the ammo fired from the gun from H.E. to A.P.I. rounds with the flick of a switch.

  11. Мощь сила и красота с ними лучше дружить ребята воевать не советую доказано Сирией.👍👍👍
